sans serif

Op45's picture


Hi all,

I've been working on and off on this typeface for the last few months. While I did start creating one a few years ago, I'd consider this my first "real" attempt at a full font. While a lot of the details are more suited to display purposes, I'm also trying to make it work at smaller sizes (maybe a separate text version?).

I haven't really shown it to many people yet and I'd like to know what you think and if it's worth continuing with. I'm mainly concerned about it looking too amateur-ish and wanted to know if there are any glaring beginner mistakes/things I've missed.

Please help me identify the font used to write Miranda Kerr's name at this page on IMG models' website.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Hello, Anybody know what font this is? Its from a 1947 classical album cover.

Anyone know the typeface in the attached sample?

Can anyone tell me what the title font is on this 1950s Eichler brochure? Or something similar. Century Gothic is close but not quite right.

I'm looking to use something similar in a poster that I'm gonna do up with a vintage electronics look.

Does anybody know a serious alternative to the typeface FF Kievit? A double storey g is at least desired.


Anyone recognize this DIN/Interstate-meets-Garage-like typeface? It appears in "A World of Presidia" by Slow Food Editore (Italy, 2005) paired with Frutiger.

Thanks for your help!

My first full typeface Badona has just been released at MyFonts and HypeForType. Here are the links:

I'm waiting for your support.


I am working on a redesign for a science magazine/journal and we need a sans serif font with as big a glyph set as possible, including Greeks and quantum symbols and as much math as possible.

Heeeey everybody,

Does anybody know what this font is? And if this is custom, does anyone know of something very close?

Thanks all,

Could anyone help me to ID the sans font used in Jamie Oliver's Magazine please?

Thank for your help :)

Hello folks,

Just watched the trailer for the upcoming film "Babies" and it has a fantastic logo/logotype. I'm fairly confident its not a custom job, since several things are typed out in it.

I have attached a couple samples.


Does anybody know what this sans serif font is called that is used on this website?


Sans serif has been considered a more constructed in form than serif faces. And rightly so. It has none of those pesky serifs pointing out, and therefore it is more stable.

I made something different; the form of this sans serif is a narrow basic form, but with counter forms I did something different. Counters have distinct sharp forms in upper left and lower right corners, to simulate a traditional nib point pen:

I've gone through all my reference books from photo composition to Enschede sample book, and also MyFonts to find a similar approach to a sans serif, but couldn't find any.

What do you think?

Here's another project, currently titled Melia. It's a friendly agate design, maybe less successful at its intended size than as a magazine headline font. It's also surprisingly readable on screen even without hinting.

I think some of the proportions are slightly off but need some fresh eyes to tell me which bits. And I should expect my spacing is way too tight as usual :P

Thanks in advance guys :)

The Mike Hebrew font family has a set of Latin characters. Getting the Hebrew and Latin to match is not at all straightforward indeed Latin and Hebrew are incompatible in both metrics and style.

At first I took Tuffy for the Latin with few modifications but now I'm attempting to design a new Latin alphabet.

Here is an example. My goal is that the Latin should be unobtrusive in its secondary role. Please help me get a good set of Latin characters.


It seems that the term 'Humanist' in typography is used solely to describe a certain type of sans serif. But is this really a reference to the renaissance Humanist scribe hands? If so why is the term not used for serifed typefaces that are directly related to this humanist hand?
Does anyone know when the history of when term was first 'coined' in regards to sans serif. Was it just an attempt to categorise, or maybe a commercial reason, to set a typeface design as different from the rest by giving it an saleable tag, one that gave it a mystique, esteem or historical cogitation.
Humanism also has many non-typographic meanings. What does this tag imply to you as designers?

I am looking for a typeface in Adobe Font Folio which is most like Interstate; suggestions?

Hey guys, I'm looking for the headline typeface being used here, "Industrial Design Served":

Or if you know of any that are similar, as it seems like I've seen a few in the past. Image attached, thanks!


A type style with slab serifs circa mid-to-late-19th century, a low contrast design of uniform stroke. So-named for the fashion for Egyptian art and artefacts in Europe when Egyptian types were designed and used. Major Egyptian examples: Memphis and Serifa. Also applied to sans serif types of the same era.
