New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am a student, currently in the process of purchasing my first font pack. After doing some research on this forum I came across two particular options that seems to fit what I need
Adobe FontFolio Education Essentials,
the 1000 fonts from bitstream that are stored with CorelDraw Graphic Suite X5
now my question is which would be better for someone in my position?
Should I stick with the Adobe collection because of the versatility of it's collection, or get the CorelDraw fonts because of the vast immensity in the scale of what it offers? Which of the two would offer me a better ground as far as building up my skills, and collection from?

Beginning in January, 1932, Becker, at the request of then-editor E. Thomas Kelly, supplied SIGNS of the Times magazine's new Art and Design section with an alphabet a month, a project predicted to last only two years. Misjuding the popularity of the "series," it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally two months before Becker's death in 1959, for a grand total of 320 alphabets, a nearly perfect, uninterrupted run. In late 1941, almost ten years after the first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in bookform under the title, "100 Alphabets," by Alf R. Becker.
As published in June, 1937, this is the description that accompanied Becker's 66th alphabet, Neonline:
“NEONLINE BLOCK, alphabet No. 66 in Alf R. Becker’s SIGNS of the Times series, is a very bold, modern style for feature display lettering. Care should be taken in the laying out of this alphabet, and every letter should be made as bold as possible...”

I have been a longtime user of Linotype's Font Explorer X on the Mac. I have bought a new Windows 7 (x64) PC and see that there is no current version of Font Explorer X for Windows. I am looking for a comparable replacement. I would like the software to have the ability to activate/deactivate fonts and some Adobe CS5 integration as I use CS5 a lot in my work. Can anyone make any recommendations?
Also on a side note, How do I transfer my existing font library to Windows, I know there has to be some sort of conversion any help would be great.
I have been corresponding with Hoefler Frere about customizing the standard character set for Whitney. Whitney has a default character set and an alternate set. We want to have some of the alternate characters to replace their default characters in the main set, and are told that choosing an alternate character can only be done manually, one at a time, through the glyphs palatte in InDesign/Illustrator.

Can someone help me identify this font?
I'm working in a identity project, I like Dessau Pro Drei for the wordmark but is only available in a package and cannot be purchased separately.
I'm looking for alternatives, nothing too expensive.
Thanks in advance.

I was hoping someone might be able to ID this font used in a childrens book I was reading. Any help would be appreciated.
Ok, so it is that inevitable time in every brand's life when it must be made into a website.
In this case the printed materials would use Gotham Narrow as a body copy font. The question is, which is more like Gotham Narrow: Tahoma or Verdana, and why?
I have adjusted size and tracking to get all three into the same basic space and configuration. Please forgive any little issues.
I am eagerly awaiting interesting comparative notes. Thanks in advance!
Hi everyone, I have always wanted to study typography but never got the chance to do it. I couldn't get into design school because I don't have any design/art background. Currently I'm studying a course that has nothing to with typography/design. I have studied the course for a year and finally realized that I want to pursue a career in typography/design. I will be joining, well actually forced to do national service as it is mandatory in Korea. I want to use my time wisely in the service and study typography but I don't have a clue where to start. Do you have any suggestions on how to study typography? I'm interested anything with typography and eventually want to design fonts.
I will not be able to use a computer for personal use so anything with computer is out of picture.
Can anyone tell me if this font is designed for Nike specifically, or, is it available for purchase through another designer?
On their apparel design page it is listed as the font 'speed'.
I've been searching for it but haven't found any answers yet.
Thank you for your help
I am trying to find out what this typeface is called - http://img197.imageshack.us/i/screenshot20110211at122.png/
It's from the Port Magazine website (port-magazine.com).
Could anyone recommend similar fonts, if unable to identify exactly? Any help would be appreciated.
Is there any font editor for iPad available in the market?
Also, is there any way to install any of the desktop softwares (OSX or Win) in an iPad?

Hey everyone, I'd like to introduce a fresh new face from Niramekko. Plau is the name and it's available at MyFonts: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/niramekko/plau/
Futurist typeface from the programming era, Plau is a sans-serif with rounded corner personality and interestingly deliberate lettershapes. Comfortable in headlines, reads surprisingly well in longer passages of text.
Also looks quite interesting on the screen.
Hope you guys like it.
Can anyone ID the font used here for RAILINGS INC.? Looks so familiar, just can't put my finger on it.
I'm need to recreate this logo for my band. This was created before I joined but I can't figure out what font was used. Any ideas?
Normally i dont second guess other "designers" but there are many things that make me question this person hand drew this typeface.
So im looking for anyone who might have seen it before, specifically the lower case glyphs since the uppers are easily modified for variation(unless you are a complete newb).
Does anyone know how to set some parameters that restrict a font to specific sizes? In my case, I need the character to be no smaller than 12pt and no bigger than 72pt. I would like the character to change to another character for sizes smaller than 12pt or bigger than 72pt.
Is this sort of thing possible in FontLab 5 with the OpenType programming panel?
I wonder if anyone knows what the font is that? Help would be appreciated, thanks for your time!
