The Northern European Type Collaboration Typolar has started. Find us at www.typolar.com. Founded by type designers Saku Heinänen, Jarno Lukkarila and Teemu Ollikainen, Typolar operates from Helsinki and London.
Typolar builds on the Nordic tradition of sturdy functionalism. For us it means fresh ideas and practical results. Working closely with publishing industries has made our typefaces naturally suitable for editorial work. However, many have found them highly useful in branding and identities as well. And that’s how we like it.
Can anyone ID what font the title is in (La Belle Epoque de Jules Cheret...)
Thank you i've been freaking out!
Any clue to identify this font?
At first I thought this was Barnbrook's State Machine, but looking at it closely, it definitley is not. I can't place it though. I don't know of a typeface with a similar 'G'.
Its probably quite simple but nobody has been able to help me so far? Any help is appreciated!
I know that most of you typophiles are experts and comments from you all are more then welcome, but I'm at a bit of a loss at the moment. So, I'm hoping there's someone among you who's willing to spend some time for the next four weeks (there's a selfproclaimed deadline) close guiding me.
In short: I'm looking for personal contact by e-mail or forum with someone who is willing and able to guide me through (what I hope to be) the final stages of designing, kerning and hinting my type design Aubaine.
I've been working on a font for a while and I want to take it into a development program to become functional.
However, I want the shapes to be as refined as possible before offering it to the world.
Please be critical, I am taking all comments into consideration.
If you'd like a closer view of a letter or letters please ask and I can attach additional files for critiquing.
Is there a sans serif typeface that is similar to Mantinia?
I'm looking for a sans serif typeface with distinctive ligatures, raised small capitals, and tall capitals; but NOT like Mason Sans (by Emigre) which is too medieval.
Although Sevigne by Reserves has lots of ligatures and it doesn't contain raised small capitals and it's too thin.
Does anyone know?
I am looking for a nice and modern sans serif for my company. Any suggestions?
The following fonts I like, but they are just not it..
Maybe something with digital/tech like rounded corners like barrister (only without the clumsiness :P)
Hello. I've been a long time lurker, so I've finally decided to join in and get advice. I've been into fonts ever since I was a kid, especially those from logos. I design my own by shaping them on PowerPoint and transferring the glyphs to High-Logic's Font Creator Program.
Thus far I've done some modernized fonts based on the classic "Press Your Luck" logo; one is regular and the other is extended, but I have some fine-tuning to do (the corners of the letters are rounded or beveled, which I don't want). Ray Larabie is known for recreating fonts from logos, and though this is a parody in the same vein, do I need to seek legal permission before publishing the font?
Kohinoor is an elegant low contrast typeface suitable for both body and display text. It comes in 5 upright styles, and where available also with corresponding Italics. As all ITF fonts, Kohinoor is a Unicode-compliant font and has full support for the conjuncts and ligatures.
Kohinoor's Bengali, Gujarati and Gurmukhi versions will be available in 2011.
Any one recognise this condensed sans serif?
CA Normal Medium is very close but doesn't have the slants on the top of the "L" and "I". That could of course just be a customisation, but the "O" is also different (hard sides on CA normal). Futhermore, the "C" and "R" seem to have slightly different proportions.
I've been working this font for a while now, and now that I've finally sketched out all the letters, I'd really appreciate some critique on the overall design of the letters before I move on to spacing/kerning/doing more weights.
In the design, I've tried to mimic several features of monospaced typefaces, keeping the typeface condensed, however allowing wider charecters like m, M, w and W.
I guess its not a good thing that I created the Bold weight first, but I guess a way to make it into a whole familiy would be to make a Light weight, and then use interpolation to create a Regular weight.
I hope you'll like it, but please do not hesitate to point out the weak parts of it.
Thanks in advance,
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!!
