I'm currently designing a logo/brand identity for a friend's photography business. His business is called Knox Photography. Right now I've decided to use Baskerville as the main font, but am trying to find a good font pair to use with it. I really like Gotham, but am not sure if it's completely appropriate? I'm looking leaning more towards a geometrical sans serif font.
I've attached an image of a quick throw together of what I'm thinking of. Right now I'm purely focusing more on finding the right fonts than on the logos design. Currently the image is set with Baskerville and Avenir.
I am delighted to announce the release of my first commercial font, Camphor™ now available in six weights with corresponding italics from Fonts.com, Linotype.com and ITCFonts.com. (Camphor™ is also available to commercial subscribers of Fonts.com Web Fonts.)
Camphor™ comes in OpenType Standard and Pro formats with broad support for Central and Eastern European langauages.
OpenType features include:
I think I'm having an off few days, I can't for the life of me figure out what the typeface is on the cover of the new Mogwai album. What's this sans serif?
I was hoping someone might be able to ID this font used in a childrens book I was reading. Any help would be appreciated.
Can anyone ID the current Urban Outfitters typeface? I think it's from ECAL. I've checked the answered type IDs and didn't find anything on their current typeface (in use since 2010, probably).
Anyone know what this is?
New Release: GT Walsheim
In its heart GT Walsheim is a geometric grotesk, but it also has a certain handmade roughness engrained in its design. Based on custom typography by Otto Baumberger for multiple lithography posters from the early 20th century, Walsheim is suitable both for display and for text use.
Can anyone identify this typeface
Thanks so much.
Hello, I've been working on some custom lettering that could potentially be used for our agency's corporate identity (if it turns out good enough). I'm at the point where I've been tweaking it and staring at it way too long, and can't tell what's working and what's not. Any feedback on overall balance, consistency, weight, color, etc. would be much appreciated. I'm not a type designer, so please don't omit any obvious issues!
(Don't pay any mind to the words themselves. They are just randomly chosen so I'm not showing everyone who I work for.)
It's celebration time @ ARS Type!
Completed in November 2010, this new version however, is much more than an upgrade. Not only was it extended with two versions of newly designed italics and a generous amount of features & alternate characters — it was completely redrawn, refined and extensively spaced & kerned (with the extensive help from Igino Marini-iKern) to fully excel in all its applications. Quite certainly for text and even more so for headlines, by introducing a unique new Display cut for all weights and styles.
Been trying to identify this typeface for hours now but can't seem to find any with a matching lower case "a". Any idea what typeface it is?
I'm currently working on a project at university, trying to create a typeface in both English and Japanese that work with each other seamlessly. What Im curious to find out is;
- Your thoughts on the idea
- Any suggestions or recomendations
- Any really good or even really bad examples of these two languages at play.
Thanks for your help.
Anybody know the name of the typeface or similar?
In general I am looking for a nice early 20th Century Sans Serif used in Alpine Posters such as the iconic Swiss Alps Ski Resort posters. Secondary area to find typefaces would be from people like Herbert Matter & Herb Lubalin.
Thanks in advance.
Hey everyone, I'd like to introduce a fresh new face from Niramekko. Plau is the name and it's available at MyFonts: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/niramekko/plau/
Futurist typeface from the programming era, Plau is a sans-serif with rounded corner personality and interestingly deliberate lettershapes. Comfortable in headlines, reads surprisingly well in longer passages of text.
Also looks quite interesting on the screen.
Hope you guys like it.
I have not been able to find out why san serif fonts such as Franklin Gothic are called Gothic. Fraktura and similar blackletter typefaces are also called Gothic. Can anyone point me to a book/text/site, where this difference — or similarity in name — originated? Or, may I hear from an expert in the house?
I was wondering if anyone can tell me the name of this typeface? It's similar to DIN, but it's not DIN. It's used by ESPN3 & the NBA on occassion I believe. Thanks in advance.

My new project, a compact, solidly constructed realist sans serif that draws its influences from Germany.
It's only got one weight right now (hopefully over time I'll make this a large font family with 6 or 7 weights). I'd love some help getting the rhythm and consistency just right. I can spend hours just focused on one glyph, so it's hard to remember sometimes how crucial rhythm, weight and color are as well.
I just built it from scratch in 48 hours, but any input would be much appreciated!
! UPDATE (2/21): New pdf here!
Anyone know what font this is, used by the band White Lies?
I'm looking for suggestions of modern sans serif fonts, I like Precious Sans, and to certain level Ubuntu but want more options that you consider relevant.
Thanks in advance
