I'm a newbie in a need of some typo advice from experts as I have become overwhelmed by browsing the web ...
I'm a student and currently redesigning a medical magazine run by a non-profit student organization.
I'm looking for a sans serif for headings (it will also appear on posters) and a serif for long texts (2 columns).
Keywords: economical, legible, modern
This beeing my first post:
I'm an architecture student and this is the first time I'm really dealing with typography. It's only a very basic draft supposed to show the characteristics of a font I want to create myself, as I can't seem to finde anything comparable that tries this fusion of geometric structure and "contemporary" spurless details.
If you know any existing font with these features, please tell me - there has to be one somewhere.
Anyway, please feel free to tell me, wether you think this is a project I should push further or if it is completely hopeless - architects tend to think they can do everything on their own and end up in a massive mess.
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.
Pétala Pro gave his first steps almost ten years ago. During this time, the quest for perfection had forced several interruptions. It was necessary recalculate the route, tread other ways, discover new maps, and make easy curves. After all, a new milestone on typeface design was reached.
Pétala Pro combines readability with a gentle but strong personality. The smooth and balanced forms shares space with expressive ink traps. The 18 styles of the family – from Thin to Black – allow the flexibility needed to complex design briefs. When designing the different weights, rather than automated solutions, subtle adjustments were made to value the optical qualities of each style. Such care, makes all the difference under extreme conditions.
So I am designing this T-shirt and I came across this font pairing problem. I want to pair a sans-serif with a sans. That is because the red flipped "Ǝ" is indispensable and refers to EMINƎM. So I basically have these four combinations(please ignore the kerning for now). I was hoping you guys could tell me how good and bad they are, and suggest best pairings too.
I've been working on my first typeface for the past 2 and a half weeks.
The idea was to create a type inspired by the Bauhaus letterforms but adapted to modern times.
With styles good for Display ("regular" and "bold") and others good for Text ("book" and "book bold").
I haven't set the kerning yet and there's still plenty of work to do, but I wanted your opinion about what I've got so far.
Illiad Sans is an adventurous type family, brave and charismatic, built for editorial contexts. The proportions are reduced in order to supress the need of small caps, avoiding editing hassles.
I'd love to put a name on that beautiful typeface.
Looking for some improvements and comments for this rounded sans i'm making.
It's my first effort to do a complete typeface.
I've attached a pdf to closer inspection.
Thanks in advance for any contribution to evolve.
Does anyone recognise this font?
I can identify this font - can anyone help identify this typeface? Its very similar to Frutiger, but it is not. :(
Many thanks in advance!
I've attached an image and more can be seen here:
Curious to know if this is a commercially available typeface. Shares similarities with that in use for Kaleidoscope magazine, Snowden Blue and Verities magazine.
Any help appreciated—particularly similarities with the 'W'.
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.

From a great Berlin exhibition that revolves around the Whole Earth Catalog and its impact. It looks a lot like Nick Shinn's Figgins Sans to me, but it's different in some (obvious) details: ascender-to-cap ratio, the t, the, r, the f... Maybe custom modifications?
Does anyone perhaps know what typeface this is?
I would appreciate any help, as I really like this font!
Thanks in advance,
Can anyone tell me what font this is?
Hey all, any ideas what this is?
I'm looking for the ID's of the sans font & the script font used on this town sign. The sign is located in Sky Valley, California, USA. Any ID's of similar fonts are also very welcome.
Thanks in advance for helping
Cheers from Berlin
We are looking for sans sefic faces that are really spacially economical with as large an x-height as possible for setting the nutritional info on some food packaging we are designing. The packaging is subject to some very tight guidelines and we are looking for a face that has a large x-height, is spacially economical but is not a condensed face. Any suggestions are very welcome.
Hi! I'm new to the forum, so thanks for helping me out. :)
I'm looking hard for a font family for a new website project that is very similar to Museo Sans, but that is a little simpler like Avenir Next. I like Museo Sans because it has some personality, but I like the simplicity of a geometric sans like Avenir Next. Futura is way too geometric and "Intro" font is too stylized.
Saw this at Whole Foods the other day and am hoping someone can help identify it... thanks so much
Wondering if you could help me out with IDing the fonts used on this site: Sous Style. I've also attached a screen shot.
It looks like they're using a serif (in the CSS it specifies Baskerville, but I've not known Baskerville to look like that) and an unknown "Geometric Light" embedded typeface - but I'm having no luck identifying either.
In the April 7th 2013 issue of New York Times Magazine, they use a rounded-condensed Sans Serif that has square tops (sorry for the incorrect terminology) on the capital A. Anyone know what this is or who makes it? (See attached image)
