New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I sure hope someone out there can help me.
Currently i am in the middle of writing an essay about the style in the 80s, including everything from fashion to magazine design.
I am having a bit of trouble though finding any info on what types of fonts where used back in the 80s, for magazines, ads and the likes.
If someone could direct me towards some sites with info, or perhaps share some examples on fonts and how they where used, that would be fantastic.
Thanks in advance :)

Any idea what this font might be, or even what might be close to it? My client would like to use it as a logo, and I'd like to use the font elsewhere in his designs.
I am looking for some critique on this project. It started as a sketch of the uppercase characters & developed into lowercase. I am wondering whether to introduce some weight to this project as the negative space in some of the lowercase glyphs contrasts a lot with the uppercase.
Does the x height of the lowercase fit the cap height ok? I looked at Gotham Condensed Bold for some guidelines on vertical proportion.
Would appreciate any feedback from you experts out there.
I made my own font in Fontographer 5.1 and "luckily" downloaded FogLamp Demo version and converted font to TTF and installed.I opened Adobe Illustrator,typed few letters and I see these strange discolorations on some characters;watermarks.After I figured out this information,I tried to search for full version of FogLamp on torrentman.com,but nothing was there;so I googled and all you can find is demo version. Does anyone know,where to find any converter that converts FOG files(.fog) without leaving watermarks(possibly full version for free)? Thanks for a lot!
We are a group of students doing a visual identity project about Como, Italy. We need font suggestions for the logo of the city we created: it should be sans serif and possibly coherent with the different identities of Como (romanesque decoration, rationalist movement of Terragni, liberty-inspired elegance). Attached some images of reference.
We were thinking of Neutraface because of its geometry matching that of our logo, but it turned out to be a predictable choice and the result was too "fascist".
Thank you very much for your help.
I feel like I've seen this ornament hundreds of times, yet I cannot figure out what typeface it belongs to. I've tried various type id systems and none have identified it. Can anyone help? Much thanks!
Hello! Does anyone know what this font is called?

I was wondering if someone can ID this font that I found in a magazine which I would like to use for my work. It resembles Alba a little bit, but it is not Alba
