Beautifully crafted Flare typeface

I'm looking for some typophile's advice on some beautiful flared typeface. I really enjoy Aviano Flare ( but I can't seem to find any similar typefaces that spark the same emotional feel as Aviano.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as I've been searching for a few days now. Thanks in advance!

Anyone know what this beautiful slab is?

Hey guys,

Found this font in edition 82 of Eye Magazine and can't figure out what it is. Has a pretty unique italic. Any help would be much appreciated!

Bingham CC logo font

Hey guys

I so know what font this is, but my rum soaked brain just isn't working today! I've identified the numerals, they're Hightower Text (set at different point sizes!!) but the Bingham CC is eluding me today. Any help would be most appreciated.

I'm looking for the font I lost that I used in a design. I'm pretty sure I downloaded or paid for it somewhere but I've lost the file and have been searching online for the font for 17 hours. Please help! I don't know the name. I need it for a couple products I'm making for a client and the deadline is by tomorrow. The font has to match, as I used it as his logo on all his other products. It will be a huge let down if I can't reproduce this for him. Here's my email address:

National Geographic has a new blog showcasing forgotten imagery,
it also features a rather lovely italic serif for its masthead.

Initially, I thought it was a Barnbrook face due to the seated italic U, I was wrong.

Anybody have an idea as to which typeface they've used here?

Anyone have any ideas? I ran this sample through a couple of other font ID sites with no matches yet.

The story behind this font, in case it helps in any way:

My boss had me redo a set of business cards for a number of new recruits, but he doesn't have the originals, so I'm tasked with recreating them from scratch. I scanned his card in and re-arranged the numbers so as to not reveal addresses/phone numbers.

The curious thing is that all the alphabetical letters were done in Century Gothic, but the numbers were done in this unknown font, and thus I only have the numbers as a sample.

The closest match I've found so far is Courier, but differences are still there.

Any insights are much appreciated!

Thank you in advance,

I'm breaking down typefaces to try understand their construction — brush strokes, direction, angle etc (manual Kalliculator you could say). Currently I'm looking at broad-nib based typefaces, and I'm hoping someone could shed some light on their design and construction with regards to serifs.

This is what I think it may be: the white lines being the 'brush', starting at 30 degrees
and arrows the direction it travels — are these serifs shapes constructed without regard to the brush or do they follow it some how?

Another example is Dolly, where the serif is asymmetric and I've no idea how that's drawn,

Half serif stems

Hi everyone!

This is my first attempt to get competent critique about my font. So please, Don’t beat me up too hard :)
I will be very appreciated about any critics and comments.
My first serif typeface I am trying to make a little bit retro, fashy, but contemporary.
It has 5 different serif shapes depending on the position of prominent parts of letters (maybe a little bit too complicated, but I like it).
I know there are still many things to work on and improve, but the main parts I am really not sure about are sharp ends of stems. The stems are the only parts without any serifs and I guess it makes the whole face unusual.
Please look at PDF files attached below.

Confounding font

Hello everyone, this is my first post here. I couldn't figure out this font with whatthefont or identifont or the help of a few co-workers, or going through my whole font library one at a time, so I ask if you recognize this font.

I have a photo of the font, and a version where I blackened a selection of the letters, and a version where I blackened and sheared the letters back to an angle that seemed non-italicized. Thanks guys.

I'm working on a little project for this association and they have no idea what font was used for their identity. I have searched and searched and found that it is similar to Berling but it isn't quite a match. I will be eternally grateful if you fine folks knew what the main font was or even the font in the tagline "always in season." It would give me something to work with.

To ricreate a logo, i need to know what is the name of this font. Many fonts i found are similar but the Type "A" is different in anyone else...

I need your help, Thank You!!!

First time posting so excuse me if I leave anything out. I need to design around an awful logo I was given and am having a hard time matching the font 100%. I get close, but the "y" is always the downfall. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hi, I'm working on a website that I really want to invoke an early Modernist feel, both in layout and typography, somewhere like 20s or 30s but without the arts and crafts movement or art deco tropes.

For the sans-serif font, I was debating between Gill Sans, Verlag, or Erbar, and I went with Erbar because licensing for Verlag is difficult for web, and Gill Sans is perhaps too common. (That being said, Joanna goes very, very well with Gill Sans)

There's not much I can find on Erbar, because anything on Erbar is just a reference to Futura.

Can anyone help with this typeface? I thought it was from Lost Type but it's not. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Hi there,

I think this is a cut of baskerville with customised 'k' and cap 'd' but im just guessing so I was wondering if anyone knew it?

What serif is used here?

Notice the "e" in the font. It comes up diagonally. I've yet to figure out what font this is.

Hi folks,

Appreciate anyone who chips in to this. Fleshing out a branding/identity project and looking for pairing a serif typeface with Akkurat:

Akkurat is already established, used in the logo and has been used for body text. It is for a design agency. The challenge I've had is choosing a serif face to partner it. Why? When creating documents with longer passages of text, I'd rather not use Akkurat for absolutely everything. A lot of the clients are Universities and in the Education sector, and I always feel they prefer serifs as well (albeit ungrounded research).
