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.
Hello there, could anyone help me and say which font this is? Many thanks! Suzy
Does anyone know what this font is? I'd like to use it on a new projects.
i think this font may be custom.. but i wanted to see if you guys had any input.
any ideas would be appreciated. thanks.
I'm trying to settle on fonts for a logotype that is a compound word (want to distinguish
the 2 parts of the word).
Leaning towards a serif/sans mix but trick is finding a combo that has very similar x-height and shape, and lasting power for a logo.
There are 2 sets of double "Os." This is where I'm stuck, to go with very round or very not round.
Also a lowercase "g" which is probably my favorite letter in double storey form.
Overall look should be friendly, approachable.
I'm leaning towards Minion combined with either Syntax, Meta, Profile or Whitney (the last of which
I don't own and will have to buy).
I'm trying to figure out the font used in the Blue Valentine trailer. It's so beautiful and serify. It's probably going to be something very obvious as I feel like I've seen this before.
See attached images! Thanks!
Seen at the exhibition »Runge’s Cosmos. The Morning of the Romantic Era«, Hamburger Kunsthalle, 2010.
This brand new font family was just released this month from Portuguese designer Dino dos Santos, and it's a real beauty.
I'm thinking about buying the display, text, and sans. What are your thoughts? A new classic or nothing special?
Happy Sunday typophile board!
/edit: Sorry everyone, realized the name was in the CENTER of the image. Too many design finals have fried my brain.
But if anyone knows where the lower case 't' came from in the middle
-or- the foundry that produced 'Fadeaway' typeface I would be much obliged
I posted earlier wanting help with the tittles, currently diamonds.
here is the rest of the lowercase. I've included a few extra letters that I want some input with.
the /a/, /b/, /k/, /y/ and /z/

Hi all - I am working on an identity project for a client in Russia. I need to find a cyrillic font which reflects a contemporary interpretation of a heritage brand. I am thinking something along the lines of Fedra Serif, but I need a cyrillic character set. Any suggestions?
last days i always came across high contrast serif fonts.
spezial in the field of fashion and magazines.
is there any category name for those fonts or does anyone know where there came from or what background they have?
even a few names from similary ones would help!!!!!
i am sure the font from saturday for industrie magazine is custom made but there are so many out there right now there must be some mainstream version :)
i am not looking for slabserif or egyptienne.
and i am aware that bodoni does have a good contrast in the line width :)
thanks so much!
Greater Albion have just released two new families on Myfonts and Fontspring.
Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces. It's a family of three 'all capital' faces. A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic - with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text - which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look. It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility. It's ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.
I am looking for a font for a project inspired by the 'Divine Comedy' / Dante's 'Inferno' - found this lovely sample from an old edition. Can anyone point me in the direction of a font with similarly spiky serifs?
thanks in advance for your time and assistance!
Hi There typophilers,
New time poster/ long time admirer of typophile from Brighton UK here attempting a typeface based on a logo i designed for our company - a design studio called Filthy in the UK. Attatched is the filthy logo, which is to be printed in a black foil and embossed, but for the moment i have added some lighting effects to give you the idea of the final outcome. Here i am attempting to create a typeface that is of a heavy weight and resembles latex when used as a logo (mirroring the Filthy theme).

I have developed the typeface for a mailout and am now extending the face into a full working typeface. I believe it could be fairly interesting when completed. The face uses influences from rhythmic calligraphic stokes and from heavy weighted Caslon faces. I have added a humanist element to the face as well.
Can anyone let me know what these fonts are? They're both so beautiful...
Does anyone know which typeface was used on this at from the Times website?
To watch it in full, visit: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/05/books/review/100-notable-books-2010.html
Should be there around middle right.
FYI, it doesn't seem to be Calvert, Lubalin, Memphis, …
Thanks in advance!
I'm studying graphic design in Finland and am quite new to the world of typography. I have been reading this forum for a some time now, and the time has come to ask for your assistance with a font from a logotype.
I tried identifying the font at WhatTheFont, without luck. I think it has some similarities with bold and semibold cuts of Stone Serif, Cambria, Georgia and some Garamonds. Having read my Bringhurst, I think it has some baroque (drop terminal ‘a’, moderate aperture, axis) but it looks modern to me. The serifs (or stem) on ‘n’ and variable terminals should make it easier to identify. I am quite sure it's something really obvious, I just don't see it.
Looking for a serif face that would go well with Vitesse Sans.
Mostly to be used as a secondary typeface for an identity system.
The identity will most likely be in Vitesse Sans.
The serif, should preferably be something that works well for both print and web.
But only print faces are also welcome.
I'm thinking something in contrast to the rectangular aspect of Vitesse.
I'm a first year graphic design student, so I'm just starting out. Since I'm doing graphic design now, everybody suddenly wants my advice for their birthday invitations etc. Most of the time I'm able to help them, but now I've got a question I don't have an answer to.
My dad needs a font for text that contains a lot of numbers. I've spoken to him about it and showed him some fonts that are already on his computer, like Georgia which has text figures (old style/hanging numbers). He didn't like the that there's only a bold, a regular and an italic, as he needs a semi-bold as well... I am willing to pay for a good typeface with old style numbers, as I think I'll be able to use it in coming years anyway, but it shouldn't be too exclusive/expensive as I am a student.
