Thank you-

1. Your thread will be on Google.

It is important to remember that not all clients want the work which you are doing for them in the search engines. Before you post work for critique keep this in mind because the search engines love Typophile. Sometimes it is best to keep things generic or, if you want to use the company name, consider only using images with the logo, etc., and ask that no one type the company name.

We don't wish for anyone to lose their jobs because of a thread on Typophile, but it is our policy not to delete threads and we don't delete them without consideration.

2. Be helpful, but be polite.

If your sample is available online, you can link to it via a hyperlink, though we prefer you upload an attachment in the thread itself. There are two options:

To attach an image in your original post.

  1. Click edit in the black bar at the top (right under the thread title) if you're adding an image to a pre-existing thread.
  2. At the bottom of the page you'll see Attachments in red.
  3. Click Browse and select the image on your hard drive.
  4. Click Submit.

Hi, Does anyone have a suggestion for a good sans serif font to pair with IM Fell? Overall look I'm going for is a bit of an old worldish feel. Thanks!


I've just released Madre Script


Marconi Lima | TpF

Setup:Mac OS X10.9.5,default system font:Lucida Grande

Problem:How to modify the system default font?

1.I know that Yosemite with helvetica neue will come soon,but I can't wait for one more month.

2.I have tried tinkertool which can't change the font of menubar.



I'm doing a research about small typefaces.
In my study I need to compare some typefaces (the word "Hamburgevons1268") that are not for sale like Retina (Hoefler & Frere-Jones) and telefont (Martin Majoor).
Does anyone here has some refences on these typefaces (outside from what is online)?
I can't find a contact for Martin Majoor...

Thank you in advance.

Dlig format specification

Where can I find specefications for the dlig and clig formats?

Hi all.
Recently I’ve switched to proportional fonts for programming, and have been looking for font choices, but find I’m missing some vocabulary.

There was a post on variable width fonts for coding here:
But aside from a few choices, I couldn't glean how to look for good fonts.

Here are the characteristics I’m looking for:
0 - The font needs to work well at small sizes and coarse resolutions.
1 - The lowercase L and number 1, as well as capital i, need to be distinct at small sizes. Same with zero and o (upper and lowercase).
2 - Punctuation needs to be prominent. A period and a comma mustn’t be confused. Same with primes and hatches. (Helvetica and Fira Sans crash and burn here).

Type-related Interships?

I am just a design student at my Sophomore year. I've spent my summer with a letterprint artist and had made my own prints. School program offers too few opportunities to learn actual type (other than some basic Bringhurst and Swiss people) so I'm thinking applying for type-related internships, whether they be inside US or outside US (Europe or Japan...?) I'm thinking it would be optimal to work for a production type designer or a design company.

Any recommendations for internship-searching?

Too Much Spam

Here we go again with the spammers taking over our forums - who is watching the store - this almost killed this board off the last time. Help!

The Koyal Group Private Training Services -- Fraude is een grove negatief woord wie of wat dan ook het terecht wordt beschreven. Niemand wil hebben niets te maken met het behalve de daders van het, helaas. En daarin ligt de behoefte aan eerlijk en hardwerkende particulieren en bedrijven voor te bereiden en zich beschermen tegen de rampzalige gevolgen ervan zelfs als doen dus een heleboel kosten en aandacht vereist.

We are 1 day away from a new NFL yr and the begin of the free of charge-agency time period Teams can start to indicator free agents at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday. The 3-day negotiating window opened this past Saturday, prompting all kinds of rumors and speculation Major Wright Jersey. In the midst of the rumors, the Chicago Bears located themselves in the center of some juicy ones Brandon Marshall Jersey. Is there an impact defensive end on the way? What about a few new safeties? And who replaces Devin Hester?

Out of all the commotion that&rsquos going close to the league appropriate now Will Allen Jersey, the Dallas Cowboys selecting up quarterback Kyle Orton has been one of the smartest moves this offseason Michael Irvin Jersey.
