Could anyone link me to reading on the topic of rounded sans-serif typefaces being used for signage/wayfinding? I'm wondering what the pros/cons are of using a rounded typeface.
this board has been incredibly helpful to so many past requests, so I’m really looking forward to your replies!
I’m currently working for a client and I am looking for a squarish typeface with rounded edges. So far I am rather pleased with typesupply's »Torque« http://vllg.com/typesupply/torque – however it’s lacking a semibold between medium and bold – the bold face is a little to heavy for this design that we're aiming for.
I’m having a hard time finding proper alternatives to torque, because it is very specific, so I was hoping maybe one of you folks knows a similar typeface?
thank you in advance!
Pendula™ is an adaptation of Pittorseques Droites (Scenic Casual) found in the circa 1924 specimen book of La Fonderie Typographique Francaise. Changes to a very small number of the original characters were made to make the typeface work better with more languages, as well as for aesthetic reasons. A newly designed Cyrillic character set was added to make the design even more useful, enlarging the character set from the basic Latin set to over 650 glyphs covering seven languages. Pendula™ also includes tabular and proportional number sets plus a bonus set of over thirty monetary symbols. Other international symbols were included too. It is a wonderfully casual and flexible design, usable in many situations.
I'm looking for a sans-serif font with rounded conners with humanist style and not too cute, no Helvetica rounded and other well rounded fonts.
Any suggestions please. Thank you.
I started by writing the name with a paint pen, scanning it in, and turning it into a vector. My goal is to create something that is upbeat, fresh, and doesn't look homemade. Feel free to critique it in a reverse compliment sandwich.

(As always, I apologise as always if I posted this in the wrong forum but I don't have specific font sample to work with here.)
I am always bashing Comic Sans, but I would really like to find and suggest a solid alternative to it. My bank (Lloyd's TSB) use their own variant of VAG Rounded for almost all of their body text which is friendly and easy-to-read. Two prerequisites for the perfect font family/typeface to recommend.
A key issue with standard VAG Rounded is it suffers from homoglyph with a only a slightly larger stem on the "i" and "j" glyphs to differentiate between them. Which was rectified in the Lloyd's TSB version. As you can see from their website.
Does anyone recognise this font?
The text is on a curve... but it should be good enough to identify. If you cannot suggest an exact match then something very similar would be very much appreciated. I'm not a font expert... but it looks like an italic rounded blackletter font with very extended and curvy serifs.
This comes from the National Bohemian Beer label.
See this link for a high resolution photo that shows the font as used on the top of the label.
I found this image via an online photo archive belonging to an artist here in the NL. I'm no typographer but it looks like a slightly wider version of Arial Rounded MT, no? Particular attention towards P, L, C, M, E, and S... very rounded, even 'techno/space-like'. After exhausting the powers of online type queries I am hoping that someone here can help identify this particular face. One thing the artist mentioned was that it was highly possible it was a free font and dated around 2008.
I know the text itself might be small but I think it's possible to make out the differences of the type.
Thanks a lot, Typophiles! : )
need help identifying this font, often used on project boards and available for purchase at craft stores
thanks so much
you guys rock
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)
Hello! First of all, thanks a lot for reading this topic. I need to know the name of the font used in the image. It looks like Comforta, but it isn't.
Do you know what font it is?
I'm working on a logo and need some help identifying the right font to use.
I'm looking for a sans-serif font with soft rounded edges, preferablly something with a single-stack lowercase "a". I like the humanistic qualities of Avenir but obviously this font isn't rounded.
I also like the style of the font in the new esurance logo, which I have attached below.
Fonts that I've considered so far include:
1. Comforta (although I feel like it's almost too rounded).
2. Museo (getting closer but some of the elements remind me of an old typewriter font).
Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks so much!
Hey, everyone. Just need to know one particular font. If the exact one can't be identified, that's okay. Something close will do. Seems like it would be simple to find and I know I have seen similar fonts. Any ideas?
Image to work from is attached. Thanks!
my first post here.
I have a problem that I don't think I have had before and I need help solving it. I can't find the problem on the web.
When I copy my glyphs from Illustrator and paste them into FLS the shapes transforms from smooth rounded corners into just cornered. In Illustrator the anchor points is set to smooth. Why do FLS change my anchor points?
My English is to limited to explain the problem. Please see the attached images.
The black and grey image is in Illustrator and the white image with a black line is in FLS.
Hope you've all been good.
I'm giving final touches to a new Latin typeface which has also a soft/rounded version. I was slightly confused whether I should call it Rounded or Soft? Any suggestions?
Here is how it looks:
I was wondering if anyone can identify this Rounded Grunge font?
i cannot seem to find a match to this font. Any ideas?
I'm a newbie so I hope this doesn't seem impolite for a first post. I am trying to recreate the John Craven's Newsround logo from the 1970s era and I'm struggling with the typeface used.
Please see the attachment. I know that the words "John Craven's" are pretty much a version of Flash Bold but I am really foxed by the large rounded sans serif used for the main font: "NEWSROUND".
I'm creating a return address stamp for a couple with last names beginning with C and A. We want the C to encircle the A, which is totally possible with many century-gothic type fonts, but I would like to find something a little more interesting. Does anyone know of a serif font with a perfectly round c? It doesn't matter if it's upper or lowercase.
What font is this or any very similar to it? Particularly looking for something with the subtle rounded edge.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
I need assistance identifying this rounded san-serif.
Thanks in advance for your help! :)
I am trying to identify a font I’ve seen in Paris, for the communication of “Les Ateliers de Paris”.
The same font is used here: http://www.marieclaireidees.com/data/photo/w308_c17/boutique-ephemere.jpg
Anyone can help me?
Thanks in advance for id-ing the My typeface.
