What are some good typefaces that would be suiting of the 1070 medieval period?

As usual, a client that just says feelings and nothing more concrete than what I am looking for.

For a food chain, family-oriented / "for the crowd" kind of demographic, and I guess it will be in a certain shade of red (like ketchup.) Its commercial advertisments are usually depicting joy when being inside the establishment or patronizing their merchandise.

Can anyone suggest? I am more leaning towards san serif typefaces since it is a tagline of sorts (can't say the tagline really, but something that in service with joy.)

Any help, guide and/or suggestions would be much appreciated!

I'm looking for a typeface similar in nature to Quicksand (http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/quicksand), but I need it to not be free.

Really, any very rounded sans serif with various weights would be great. The closest I've found is Sofia Pro Rounded, but if you have any other suggestions, it'd be greatly appreciated!


New to the Monotype® library, the 36-font Burlingame® typeface family offers designers a square, sans-serif design that is suitable for a wide range of purposes, from branding, advertising and packaging to automotive displays, user interfaces, motion graphics, and mobile and broadcast environments.

Designed by Carl Crossgrove, senior type designer at Monotype, the Burlingame typeface performs with strength and grace at any size. It’s a multifaceted, multipurpose typeface family.

Can anyone tell me what the circled parts are in this pic? Are they terminals, serifs, tails?
I'm getting confused with them all :/

World boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko is attempting to deal a knockout blow to illiteracy through a unique fundraising initiative – and Monotype is in full support. Klitschko has punched 26 letters to create a font, which is now available for free on Linotype.com. Monotype has optimized the fist-painted font to ensure clarity and quality.

All proceeds from the voluntary monetary contributions will go to the Klitschko Brothers Foundation in partnership with German charity organization BILD’s “A Heart for Children” charity http://www.ein-herz-fuer-kinder.de to combat illiteracy internationally.

Hi Typophile,

First time posting on the forum so hopefully some of you guys can help me with this one? I am struggling to identify a typeface which has been used throughout the branding of a company I am currently redesigning.

The typeface is used predominantly in the logo, hopefully when its identified I will be able to see if its commercially available as a web font to use online:

Any help would be greatly appreciated,


I don't know if it's just me and I've never heard of this optical illusion but do the arms of this E appear to flare into the stem?
I like my corrected version better but I want to get some other thoughts on it. Thanks.

How's the letter spacing on this E? (I'm a newbie.)

Yesterday I posted an introduction to my new typeface I’m working on, Theory Serif: http://typophile.com/node/107663

Your thoughts, critique and ideas are welcome.

I am looking for a Medieval typeface that I can use for a poster that subtly hints at being Medieval and not one that is over flamboyant and difficult to read.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Free typefaces would be best but please suggest all - free is just a bonus.

Hello Everyone,
I lam curious to know who designed the original Azkidenz Grotesk typeface published by the H. Berthold AG Foundry in 1896. Gunter Gerhard Lange was not born untill 1921.
Thank you

I'm currently working on a thesis that discusses the impact of late twentieth-century technology on the proliferation of typefaces. It would be a great help if you would comment your opinion whether type design programmes, such as Opentype have had a positive or negative impact on the quality of typefaces designed over the past few years.


I am a new member of this group. I am not a graphic designer, nor a font/typeface designer. However I am fascinated with fonts, their history, philosophy and art. And of course their creators.

Since there is a note saying that any subject can be posted to this forum, here is where I am doing so. However, if there is a more appropriate forum to do so, I would be grateful to know about it.

Thank you,


Hi all,

I need typeface suggestions for this fashion label with the description down below. I have also attached images of the types of logos that appeal to them. Key words are bold, playful, upmarket and modern. I tried to play with black-letter but I am looking for a more contemporary feel. I like the Hook and Irons Co. typeface as well which has a personable almost hand drawn feel to it. Any help/advice would be appreciated :)

Target: Women 25-35

The Logo Design is for a new and edgy fashion brand that specializes in Leather and High-end Faux Fur. The company is, Noble Deviance and we create accessories, apparel and footwear for women living in major cities like New York, Tokyo and everywhere in between. It's street wear with a touch of luxury.

So I am creating this logo for a customer and it is based on a custom typeface I have designed for myself for use in my work. So when i create the final logo type using that typeface, will I be able to transfer the copyright of the logo(only the logotype, as a standalone piece of design) to the customer. I am asking this because typefaces aren't copyrightable in the US and i dont want the customer to end up with a logo that they don't even own full copyright to.

Thanks for your help.

Hello everyone! You've been recommended as the best ones to go to... and I've already tried to other ID links with no joy.

It's kinda close to a few things, but nothing exact that I can identify - can anyone help identify this typeface?

Many thanks in advance!

I'm currently studying Futura font.
There's a question my teacher gave me,
Why is Futura created?

I can't seems to find the answer :(
And also, what do you think of Futura? What feels it gives you?


Hi - I can't seem to identify this font. It is similar to Cerigo, but not quite.
