sans serif

I stumbled over a link to some specimens of this typeface called Apollo. I like the quirks that sets it apart from similar faces, the C in particular, with the top terminal cut horizontally and the bottom terminal cut at an angle. Has this typeface ever been digitized or revived under another name? I hadn’t heard of it before.

Hey guys!

I’m currently working on branding for an Asian city and I imagine the wordmark to have a modern, Western-friendly appeal, but with a subtle Asian warmth and sharpness to it.

ITC Symbol Std has caught my attention so far, but I’m really not comfortable with the varying thickness of the stems and the loops. Also, the thicker weights look nice but when it comes down to the lighter weights, the typeface looks odd.

I have also found Penumbra to be appealing although I wish it had more subtle serifs and available lowercase letters for the wordmark I’m designing.





¶ Some Twenties and Thirties Sans Serif feature a couple of letters derived from the early or late Middle Age.
· · · Examples: Bayer's Universal, Goudy Sans, Lydian, Peignot.

¶ Can you list some and explain the linkage (uncial, caroline, insular, beneventan, fraktur) of the letters?

Looking for font suggestions/general insight.

I'm currently working on the website & art direction of a soon-to-be-launched women's online fashion shop. The feel of it is supposed to be "up scale" and kind of exclusive (not cute or kitschy at all). I have been trying out logo sketches and other things with Lineto's "Brown" typeface and LOVING the way it looks and how it communicates the brand.

example:

Bodoni Sans consists of 20 fonts in 3 contrasts for Standard, Display and Text uses.
Available at MyFonts

This is my first sans serif font. I actually send it for the insentive program of TypeTogether but my project wasn't choosed :(
After that, I think some feedback can help me to catch the problems i didn't see before.
Thany you all! :D

Hi there.

I wouldn't mind a bit of critique on this, my first (more or less) digital typeface. It was intended as Schelter-Giesicke Grotesk meeting Helvetica with a dash of Bauhaus (Herbert Bayers "Universal", really), but so far it looks more like random Grotesk meeting Futura, but I like it anyway.

Like Bau

Hi! I'm looking for a version of Bau which is similar but a little more geometric. It's hard to describe but I'm looking for something more sophisticated and modern. Any suggestions would be really amazing. Or any pointers on good foundries to check out even.

Thanks!

Hello,
I'm looking for a sans-serif font with rounded conners with humanist style and not too cute, no Helvetica rounded and other well rounded fonts.

Any suggestions please. Thank you.

Baton

Dear Typophiles,

We are happy to release our latest typeface, we hope you like it.
Baton is a sans serif typeface with narrow proportions combining eccentric shapes inspired by french vernacular typography with the simplicity of modern sans serifs. Peculiar details and a low contrast make the design slightly strange yet elegant, but it is the exaggerated high and low midline in the uppercase and the small x-height which give Baton its distinctive flair. Relatively wider and more toned down, the lowercase allow Baton to function not only as a display typeface, but also for short texts such as leads in magazine.

After reading a few old posts about appropriate sans serifs to accompany classic serifs, I decided to make an attempt at designing a sans serif to accompany the Benedictine Pro face. Tentatively named Benedict Sans, here's what has been done so far for the regular weight (to be followed by book and bold):


Thanks in advance for your attention. And have a nice summer ...

Hello everyone! You've been recommended as the best ones to go to... and I've already tried to other ID links with no joy.

It's kinda close to a few things, but nothing exact that I can identify - can anyone help identify this typeface?

Many thanks in advance!

Hello,

Can someone help me identify what font is used in the west elm logo?

Thank you for your help!

Can anyone please help me with finding a similar font to the one on these pharmacy bottles. I like that it has the art nouveau features, but is still somehow contemporary and simple.
Thanks a lot!

Hello all! I recently launched a new font design project on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/59648831/uniform-a-revolutionary-new...

The font is a geometric sans serif type family, but what makes it unique is that the condensed weights are straight-sided, not squished ovals like all other geometric type families out there.

Please pass the word along to your designer/type loving friends! I really want to be able to create this cool new typeface but without the funding there is no way I will have the free time to work on it.

Thanks!

I have seen but cannot remember the name of a beautiful and interesting font distinguished and perhaps most identifiable by its letter "f".

I am trying to find this font but wasn't abel to ID it myself. I thought URW Grotesk but the f seems different. Thank you so much for support.


Hi everyone,
I've been quite perplexed over the last few days trying to figure out what this particular typeface is.
It appears on the opening sequence of Gregory Peck's 1962 film "To Kill a Mockingbird." The typography struck me as beautifully modern but I am yet to determine what it is set in. I think there's another forum on this topic that suggested Akzidenz Grotesk as being a likely candidate, however, they didn't arrive at any solid conclusions and I'm adamant that someone out there knows! Such is my curiosity that I've created an outlined vector file showing the differences that are most apparent to me.

Anyways,
Thanks for your help!

riviera - critique

Hello everyone.

Here I am to present you this Riviera, my first attempt to design a font. The project started in the late 2005, when I hand-designed some capital letters to present a project.


Now I'd like to complete it. In my mind it should be a display font inspired and recalling the modern movement, '50 etc. Until now I designed a to z lower and uppercase. Numbers are just sketched, I need some time to fix the thicknessess; punctuation and glyphs are not yet drafted. Maybe in future I'll develope different weights versions, but now I want to define this medium weight one.

Here there is a little test page:

Hi folks,

Non Format have been using a nice typeface lately but not sure what it is. I thought it was Brown by Lineto by it isn't. Any help appreciated.
