I'm a graphic design student who's very interested in typography. Currently I'm working on a project where I need to select 3 sans-serif fonts. First one is more general like, that is either very over used or has very basic shapes (my choices were Helvetica, Arial Times New Roman) Second one, needs to depict precise and clear information (science publications) (my choices were Akkurat, Din, Replica) And third one is mostly used for philosophical, art statements (like for example Laurence Wiener works) (Trade Gothic, Franklin Gothic, Knockout) I'm open for any other suggestions or corrections. And thank you very much in advance.
I've been searching and searching how you can create such kind of composition.
The graphic designer Jocelyn Cottencin made those beautiful typography.
I know that for other font he has created he uses a pattern that he transform in scatter brush via illustrator.
I guess he uses this technique in an other way that I can't figure out.
If you guys can share your guesses or solutions, It will be incredible!
Hope you enjoy his work like me...
Please advise on Software products for creating typographic art.
Hi Everyone. We would love your feedback on a logo we've created for a modern art gallery in Nairobi. MOCA stands for the Museum of Contemporary Art.
It will be the first Contemporary Art Gallery in Kenya which is quite exciting.
Thanks in advance...
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.
has anyone done artwork like this before?
About Heráldica Script
We are proud to add a very complex and new font to our collection.
Ornamented scripts are a Koziupa/Paul specialty, and Heraldica is one of their most expressive. It attains the very definition of deluxe by conjoining the classic thin-and-thick script treatment with thin-only counterpart strokes, then it goes the extra mile with a varied complement of overlaid flourishes. The usual assortment of multiple alternates and ending forms pushes it even further in class and versatility.
Monograms, logos, jewelry packaging and book covers are only a few of the possibilities with such a high-end script.
I'm currently working on an event poster for a Fashion Show that will feature graphics that have an almost watercolor feel to them. However, I'm having trouble finding a font that's really a perfect feel to accompany it.
The image is very soft, floral and spring, but I do want a more modern feeling font to counterbalance this and ensure the poster doesn't run too old.
Does anyone have any ideas about fonts that would interact well with watercolor images that aren't script?
Hi, hoping you might help identify this typeface...? Thanks in advance for any leads...

I would love for some feedback on my work. I am open to any form of criticism.
I thank you for taking time to read this
Can you help me to identify this type?
thanks and have a good weekend :)
Hi, I am trying to improve this page, and I am not sure which fonts to remove or change;
I used Lobster to "soften" the sharpness of the page, but it looks out of place, and I'm not sure if the body font (Hattori Hanzo) is also a good choice here.
I am trying to achieve an "artsy" look, It is suppose to be a part of a photography portfolio, and I don't want the hexagon and square shapes to make the page too "robotic"

Tension is frequently described as a positive in design, with designers balancing opposing constraints and visual ideas in often ‘perfect tension’. Design work balances a whole series of tensions: analogue–digital; male–female; Twitter–Facebook; art–design; East–West; old–young; interns–employees; global–local; micro–macro; educated–‘feral’; in-house–independent; degree course–short course/apprenticeship; designer–client.
Hi there.. I've searched for months for the right font to finish off my MJ Memorial sleeve. I've done a quick search here and I haven't found anything positive about Michael Jackson, so please no comments on the subject, haha.
I have an almost completed sleeve on my left arm. It is art nouveau inspired and very colorful. I am looking for a font that can be used to finish this. I know it has to exist somewhere the way it does in my head (I can't draw or I'd just make something up myself).
It needs to be light, flowing, magical, unique AND go with an art nouveau style.
It will say "so anyway, I think we've captured some good magic here"
So not too long ago (past few weeks) I answered yet another font/typeface query from a friend. He said he wanted something that will do justice to his brand in one letter or less. I made a rough monochromatic rendering of the glyph by hand, on a 20x30 canvas, using spraypaint and stenciling, took it to their studio, and it was enough to convince them. Score!
Can you name the typeface I suggested to them? It's at the bottom of the page, far left. http://www.whoisntjohngalt.com
I've launched 3 new limited edition prints today, 'Dreams',
'Stars' and 'So Much To Do'. I'm really pleased how they
turned out. I'm attaching a few images. More details here:
I've also had a major website update with new typographic
commissions for clients including Cadbury, Macy's and Liberty.

Would like help identifying this typeface. I realize this is possibly a custom typeface, but if that is the case, any suggestions for a typeface this may be based on?
Today I decided to set up a blog and stay on it! I tried wordpress and blogger but wasn't happy with the layout etc so why not put down my ideas on a blog related to a subject that I am very much interested in at the moment?
The past few days I have been following and reading almost every article on the personal blogs of two Lebanese designers: Pascal Zoghbi and Nadine Chahine. I really loved Pascals blog better ( sorry Nadine!)They both did their MA in typography and Arabic type design which is the main reason why I tried to investigate the subjects they researched on and the impact it has had on their work.
I am in a rush to leave but will shortly upload what I have come across in a separate blog :-)
I'm working on a legacy mark to commemorate the 25th anniversary for a St. Louis arts organization. Out of several options, here's the direction my client picked. It's loosely based on Bodoni and Benton Modern.
If anyone could offer some input on how to improve the curves, I'd really appreciate it. Some areas don't feel quite right yet, particularly in the way the swashes above and below cradle the shapes of the numbers.
Feedback much appreciated.
