Dez Boulder is a Strong-Brewed OpenType display face with Multiple Personalities.

Dezcom Typefaces is proud to announce the release of "Dez Boulder," a rock-on typeface with three personalities on display.

The Dez Boulder family of display faces acts in a supporting role to give meaning to message and context to content. It is a very bold face, not understated. Each of its three personalities (and their sub-personalities) have a different timbre to speak the nuance of your message in a bold voice. Dez Boulder works like a character actor, presenting the author’s lines but not with the deadpan delivery of a news reporter. Boulder develops the role, adding meaning through facial expression, gesture, and body language.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post and I hope it's in the right place. I am trying to identify the typefaces used in "The Sun" (NYC: 1835-196), the daily newspaper in which "Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus" first appeared in 1897. I am specifically looking for the body and headlines....school project here at California College of the Arts.

Here is an example a standard page, as preserved by Chronicling America:

An explanatory article of the "new" Sun's typography

And the wiki article about the paper:

Greetings all. First time poster. I've trying to find a pairing face for a custom wordmark that I've done for a mixed martial arts company (yuck, I know). The wordmark is comparable to something like the ford logo. I can't seem to think of anything that really works well enough for me to present.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

I'm looking for a good extended serif typeface to be used on a wine label. Here is an example of what I'm looking for: http://streetbush.com/ExampleofExtendedSerif.jpg

It DOESN'T have to be exact:

The sample is from a 1977 copy of Goeorge Orwell's 1984, published by HARCOURT BRACE INTERNATIONAL.

The closest I have found is Pall Mall RR Light, but Pall Mall RR Light was designed by Steve Jackman in 1992. Years after the book was published.

Any help identifying, would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I'm designing a branding for my school project for a Guy Ritchie film festival. He is the director of the movies like Snatch, RockNRolla, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Revolver, Serlock Holmes. His movies are mostly about the lucky underground criminals of London. I would like to ask which typefaces are going to be appropriate for his style?

Hey there!

I'm working on an article for my company's blog on typography and classification systems, and wanted to hear from some typographers and hear their take on it.

Without showing you the entire thing before launch (as it's a beast), I am arguing the idea that typefaces can't be classified, as their morphological properties are too close to each other. I go into the argument that as designers (that's my background - mainly web design, so shoot me) it saves us time, and I go into what different classes are good for.

Does anyone have a good suggestion for a typeface that needs to represent classic NY brownstone and modern high-efficient energy features, such as solar panels pre-installed?

Hello everyone,

I am in need of your suggestions.

A little background is needed: the University where I work and study is using the Angel LMS. The biblical language professors are trying to find a font that could be standardized for both Hebrew and Greek.*

What are our options, considering the following requirements:

  • Unicode
  • Must have support for Greek & Hebrew (must point correctly in Hebrew)
  • License: something that would allow us to upload to our own server and distribute to registered students only** / or system font (cross-platform compliant)

*They're open to using separate fonts for Hebrew / Greek if needed.
[EDIT] ** Through a secure LMS.

I'd appreciate your help.

Fibonatrain II

A new family has come

A new pair of serif and sans
For cold assertions to warm anecdotes

Designers heed these words
A well-yoked posture will prevail
Typographers alike, mind this

No more Morisonified faces
Will scourge the surfaces of their pages
For a Garalde, and a new take on Gill
In lieu of the committeed crumbs
A fully-formed featured font

I'm designing my first typeface, I was hoping to get some constructive criticism. I call it Pateo, I'm aiming for a staple sans-serif kind of design, something similar to Helvetica, Akzidenz Grotesk, Univers and the like. I know its a lot to live up to, but I plan on having many, many drafts. This is my lowercase.

Have at'er boys!

Hi,

what is the font used on nikeplus.com, please?
