New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am currently designing a serif for text (preview here: http://bit.ly/c2jbGy) and was wondering what the consensus is on making small caps for the italic weights? Are they necessary? A typographic faux pas? A waste of time?
Need some typophiles' recommendations for a good font to be used for a detergent bottle, like Tide, etc, sans serif, italic... it's not for a real detergent, just a promo piece otherwise I'd be getting a designer involved. Whatdyareckon?...
In this logo I use Bodoni Poster Italic font.
However, I don't have much experience working with classic linked typefaces.
1. I've changed a bit the default kerning so it feels homogeneous and works as logotype.
Does the rhythm of letters looks correct? (http://klim.co.il/misc/logo_01.jpg)
2. It is TTF font, so it doesn't complete the links between letters.
So I built them manually. Are they correct? (http://klim.co.il/misc/logo_01.jpg)
3. The opened link of "m" looked unnecessary, so I decided to cut it.
It became a little limping, so I compensated it by pulling the stem a bit lower.
I also fixed the kerning between "m" and "&". (http://klim.co.il/misc/logo_02.jpg)
I've tried to decide what correct angle the cut should be according
I found this in a PDF. I am confused.
This J looks quite strange. Any ideas? It this fine?
I'm not sure this is the exact right place for this, but I'm trying to track down the typographer of a free script font that's all over the freebie sites.
Font is Monika Italic [link removed by moderator] and the credit goes to "Catrina" (for whom I cannot seem to find any info whatsoever).
I'd like to use this in a commercial piece (all accompanying license info says it's freeware, but the font file is unembeddable which indicates otherwise). Can anyone either point me in the right direction, or perhaps suggest a suitable alternative ('50s-era italic script)? This is a pro bono project, so sadly I need to lean toward free or cheap.
Thanks so much!
I would like to have your critique for this scholar project.
It's a renaissance inspired italic serif based on old calligraphy principally by Arrighi.
It's no vectorized yet, so there is some irregularity along the letters.
Thanks in advance
I am in the process of building a website setted in Museo http://www.josbuivenga.demon.nl/museo.html .
I will embed the font with @font-face so no need for sifr and the likes.
I have a couple of questions for you experts : )
First of all, I am looking for a good companion italic for the font (it misses one), what do you think of museo slab http://www.josbuivenga.demon.nl/museoslab.html ? Could it fit?
Second, do you think Museo can be a good font for body text or is it best to limit its use to titels and short bursts of text?
Third, in case you think the font is not suited for body text, could be museo sans http://www.josbuivenga.demon.nl/museosans.html a decent one?
Most of the type-designs we use nowadays have their origins in the thirties of the 20th century. But their real roots are much older. Since good examples of the earliest type are hard to get by, the Amsterdam chair for the History of the Book in cooperation with the Special Collections of the Amsterdam University has started a project that will make it possible for anyone anywhere to examine early typedesign in detail. Acces to this material is difficult: the books are kept in the Special Collections of university libraries and national libraries and most times it is forbidden to take pictures.
We have started to publish high resolution pictures of early type-specimen on: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bookhistorian/
