Remember those 1970s science fiction dramas which had such charming 'futuristic' sets and backdrops? Remember the intriguing 'future' lettering and signage the set designers would devise-often coupled with interesting 'futuristic' spellings? Movella, Greater Albion's latest release, is something of a new departure for us and is a family of three typefaces inspired by that design ethos. The three faces- regular, italic and the 3d solid form - are all capitals faces which combine a feeling of 'retro-futuristic' design with easy legibility.
Movella can now be found on Myfonts and Fontspring. Here'a sample of it in action:
Over a year ago I started thinking of new font names, er...a theme of different font names for a different family of different styles :P At last, Beefcakes is in the final stages and is scheduled for release on August 20th, w00t! It is the first of the "Cakes" series, a collection of display fonts inspired by various brush lettering styles. The series will include Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes, and as each typeface is unique (not to mention time-consuming to draw!) they will be released as they're finished...

Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched 'Corton' a pair of display Roman small capitals faces.
Corton was inspired by the traditional lettering on a gravestone in an English village. While that might sound a rather solemn beginning, Corton has wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Two faces are offered-regular and titular. Between them they are ideal signage and display faces, merging 'olde-worlde' charm and fun character.
Corton is currently available through Myfonts, and is offered at a 35% introductory discount.
Here's a tough one (the display face).
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):
Greater Albion has just released three new families on Myfonts.com.
Jonquin was inspired by some hand lettering seen on a World -War One recruiting poster. It’s a family of three faces for display work and headings designed to be used readily as an 'All-Capitals' face as well as in upper and lower case format. Regular and bold weights are offered, as well as an even more decorative incised form. The whole family is ideally suited for poster and advertising work, as well as book and record covers and period themed signage.
I'm trying to I.D this font. It seems similar to Marcelle but a heavier weight and no destruction.
Any help much appreciated.
Need to create a headline to match the labeling... Can someone help out with an ID?
From the designer:
Sinder began life as a custom block font that was begging to be distressed. Of course it was only an experiment, not to be taken seriously, until a customer needed a face of just about these proportions to give his "paranormal investigation" hobby an appropriately scary image. It was out of necessity, then, that I finished the entire font. It never pays to be caught off-guard at a critical point in a layout.
Does anyone know this type face?
It has very curious lc 'n' and 'a'.
Mad trying to ID this face...

Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
I am happy to announce that Anglaise is now for sale on MyFonts.
I am happy to announce Dezen, my new release!
Dezen is a contemporary, mechanical grotesque typeface. Its letters were first constructed from individual modules and then optically refined to enhance its rhythm. Its tight letter spacing and narrow proportions make the typeface particularly well suited for display sizes and headlines. When you add spacing, font can be used for shorter amount of text, bigger than 12 points.
The Dezen type family consists of a wide variety of styles – solid and stencil. The Dezen Pro subfamily combines all 4 styles (Solid, Stencil 01, Stencil 02, Stencil 03) in a specific sequence, which originates a “pattern” for the alphabet (or dezen, in Slovak).
Dezen Pro Regular is for free!
TypeTogether is proud to introduce Rue Display, an organic, casually ornamental, narrow-faced sans serif designed by Winnie Tan.
Rue's spirited and exploratory design is the materialization of a feeling about fonts as a family of organisms taking on a life of its own, in work and play. It was conceived as a typeface, used as an image and discovered as an ornament.
It comes in 10 weights of light, regular, medium, semibold and bold, each with italics.

Here is my first attempt at making a font :
I would be happy to get any comments from all of you, because I didn't had much feedback from typographers.
Anyway, when I made it, I didn't tought it would be accepted on MyFonts, so when I saw people was buying it, I started to think about a full charachter set and redesigning all glyphs to make them work better each others. I'm also working on the kerning, hinting and all things that needs to be done to make it more 'professionnal'.
Thanks by advance,
Sorry for bumping guys, but I think my post should be in this place rather than in Release, as it's still a work in progress, and I'd be very glad to get any comment.
Hello there, and thank you for giving your time, here is my case :
I'm working on a 'liney' font (I mean that all the characters are connected each others by lines, horizontally & vertically) and managed to make it work in Fontlab.
No problems here, and I'm quite proud of my work!
When I generate the font, everythings seems to be okay, and it's working nicely in TextEdit. Kerning, line-spacing, hinting are what I expect.
Problems are coming when I use this font in other softwares :
- Adobe programs (I've tried on Illustrator, Photoshop & InDesign). Kerning is working but the line-spacing is higher than what I want, so vertical lines are "disconnected".
When I saw this, I tried with a non Adobe soft, so I've launched iWeb and had a new surprise :
Howlett, which is now released on Myfonts.com, combines great character with extreme legibility.
It’s a simple display face that offers a sense of coziness and order, that speaks of all being well with the world. It is a modern design which pays due Acknowledgment to the past.
An extensive range of Opentype features, including old-style numerals, terminal forms, ligatures and stylistic alternatives are included.
Use it for headings and titles as well as eye catching poster work.
This is a script font I'm working on and it's quite raw by now. I would really appreciate some critiques about it. It is meant to be inspired by thick brush strokes so I tried to give it a certain angle.
Check it out my first commercial font!
Its an heavy display font.
Do you know the beautiful cover design created by Paul Barnes for SchirmerGraf publishers? I think he uses Big Caslon roman and italic. Anyone knows where is Big Caslon italic available? Many thanks
Hello Typophile community!
Although I've been a visitor to Typophile for a while now, this is my first actual post here. I was hoping someone could help identify the typefaces used in this gig poster:
I'm pretty certain that the word 'MUSE' is in Futura, or a similar geometric sans. However, I can't figure out the rest of the type on the poster. It looks to me like the words 'A SEASIDE RENDEZVOUS' are in some kind of Western/Circus style font? I've tried using 'What The Font' and 'Identifont', but neither of them brought up successful results.
I've singled out what I considered to be some of the more distinctive letters in the hope that this will make them a bit easier to identify:
