I would love a critique of the typeface I'm developing for my honours project this year. The two fonts below are the display cuts in an extra-bold and light weight. It's going to be used as part of an identity system for an artist-run initiative in Melbourne. Previously they were using Reader for headlines and Parry Grotesque for body copy. The naivety and clunkiness of early British grotesques was the formal starting point.
This is my first proper foray in to type design and I've yet to go through kerning pairs so forgive any awkward combinations. Love to hear your impressions, criticism, suggestions.
I hope you can help me ID this typeface, it's for a French company called Traqueur that specializes in vehicle after-theft recovery and fleet management.
This is my new typeface project, inspired by attached image of Alvar Aalto's design for a door handle ("VEDÄ" = pull, "TYÖNNÄ" = push in Finnish). I fell in love with the unorthodox proportions of Aalto's lettering (which was of course made to fill certain width) and I have tried to keep that mood in my letterforms. I'm planning to include some alternative glyphs of different widths so user can more easily create words that have right amount of narrow and wide letters.
Though Aalto's Ä is superb, I couldn't figure out any decent way to make it work, so I just made up my version.
Any comments / suggestions are welcome!
Can anyone suggest a good sans serif body copy font to go with a Modern 20
I am happy to announce that after a long period of development, my type family Acorde is available for purchase at http://www.willerstorfer.com
About the typeface:
Acorde is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. It was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. The typeface’s name is derived from ‘a’ ‘cor’porate ‘de’sign typeface, however Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design purposes as well.
This typeface is used on signage throughout the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I can't figure out what it is, any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Anyone have seen this?
Thanks in advance!!
Q™ says: It's all about the fonts!!
Need help identifying the font used in the picture.
Can anyone ID these two fonts being used in AT&T advertisements? Are they custom? And if so, any idea as to the foundry?
I am creating a poster brochure aimed at teenagers but still appealing to adults - parents and teachers. I want a body font stylish, modern, with an edge. I've used Univers for one of the headings and the company's logo is in prosper-book.
I want something nice and readible and breezy. I was looking at Optima but it's a bit too old fashioned and I was looking at using univers for the body but I'm sure if its as readible and I'm not sure which weight to use.
Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!
Thought I knew what this was but I don't and now it's killing me. Can you help a brother out? I'd much appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
Does anyone know the name of this font? Help is greatly appreciated :)
Can anyone name this? I think the same font was used on Godard's DVD packaging for Breathless. A close guess is Highbus-Bold, but that isn't it.
Thanks in advance,
I have been reading this book called "Manual of graphic techniques 3" (old, but quite an interesting read) and one of the samples used there caught my eye.
I thought it's just a hand-drawn sample of type treatment, not a typeface itself, as I couldn't find any information about it in the credits. I like it so much, I was thinking of making the rest of the alphabet.
I guess I'm too naive and inexperienced, just recently stumbled into some artwork with the same looking type in it.
I assume there is a typeface, so I would like you to help me identifying it. I've attached a photograph of it (the "Mercury" one):
It would be great if anyone could help me identify this Sans Serif typeface. It looks like a Futura alternative, but I can't figure it out. Thanks!
This is the first iteration of Paper Romantic, based on a few doodles I found in the margins of an old college notebook. This is the first time I've tackled digitizing any of my little typeface experiments, so any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!
I know the /N/ feels very out of place, but I'm not sure how to resolve that. Also, I can't tell if the lowercase is working or not. Some of the letters seem to fit, while others just look wrong.
Thanks so much!
See attached, thanks!
Hello, could someone help me identify this typeface, love the R!
Are any of the other letters available to see? and did anyone ever do a revival?
