Art Deco sign

Hi people. Any ideas for a good match for this sign?

Omego.

hello everyone.
here is something i have been working on lately. it is inspired by italian futuristic type (not to say fascist one!).
it is really fresh, so no time to make proper kerning. hpowever, some ligatures are already here. i am aware there are similar typefaces around, but i think this still has some potential & autonom character.
what do you think?

Anning demo

An art deco font with swirly flourishes.

The bottom caps have overlapping swirls; this is because the cap form are intended for use at the first of a word where there is no overlap.

Art Deco Type

Can anyone tell me what typeface this is on this picture? I'd appreciate it!

Hello! I'm doing a research and probably a project which the final "product" (only for academic purposes, I emphatize) would be a magazine in which design would be the main subject. I was thinking something in a similar square format as the new Creative Review (after the redesign).

I've looked typefaces such as Apex New, which is one of my favourite "squarish" sans-serifs. Chester Jenkins did an awesome job on that! The typeface is beautiful and it seems to work nicely on body text. (Klavika is beautiful, but I want to see something a little bit different and yet, with some "squarish" proportions)

The other one that seems to fit is "Leitura Sans", by Dino dos Santos for titles and body text.

Art Deco font ideas

Hi

My friend has asked me to put together her wedding invites using an 'art deco' inspired font. Has anyone got any ideas? Readability seems to be a problem with a lot of them.

Shrifteen is a favourite at the moment, but worried about readability. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

Greater Albion have just released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts.com.

The first of these, Cirflex was inspired by a 1930s shop sign, and makes an ideal typeface for Streamline Era and Art Deco design. Cirflex is offered in regular and bold weights.

Can anyone help with this typeface please?
I think it could be, or more likely be, hand rendered. So if anyone knows a similar face, please let me know.
Mucho appreciated.
Andy

I saw this typeface on an ad, and I'm sure I have seen it before, but I can't seem to remember the name or where I've seen it. Any help will be highly appreciated.

Can someone help me identify this font? An advertiser wants this exact font used in their ad, and I haven't been able to find this EXACT font. Only similar ones. I'm sure there is someone out there that is better at this that me. Please help.
I've attached a couple of photos for the font example.

A bit of a tricky one, a script typeface taken from a vintage copy of vogue.

Its most likely that it is hand drawn type created in-house, but does anybody have any idea what this script typeface is / know of any around that have similar properties?

Forgive the mostly poor quality of the image.

Thanks

Hello all!!!

I´m trying to identify this typeface, but need some help. Any clues?

Thanks very much.

Couldnt find this one on dafont or other free sites. Didn't search any of the major type houses though.

Anyone know it anyways?

Thanks for your time.

Cheers

Hey everyone, I am looking for a font that would go well with the font "Market Deco." It is a free font that can be found at http://www.dafont.com/market-deco.font.

This is for a documentary over local theatres that I'm working on as an immersion project for school. Market Deco is the font of the headings or titles (mainly in motion graphics). I need a nice, clean and legible font that compliments it well as a subheading. Something that doesn't stick out as much as the Deco font, less bold.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

"Normandie" is a new Art Deco / industrial sans font I've designed, named after the 1930's French ocean liner SS Normandie. I currently have nine weights done, though next I'm planning on adding a set of italics as well as perhaps a condensed variant.

Since Normandie is really only designed to work at display sizes, I've also designed a "companion", called "Normandie Text". I've toned down some of the more eccentric pieces of the original Normandie design, enlarged the x-height, slightly condensed the uppercase and altered the forms slightly to make it less "geometric". The hope is that this will read well at text sizes while still acting as a "little brother" to Normandie.

Let me know what you think!

Does anyone know what any of these art Deco typefaces are, or know of something similar? I especially want to know what the script used on both of these is.
