A bit of a tricky one, a script typeface taken from a vintage copy of vogue.
Its most likely that it is hand drawn type created in-house, but does anybody have any idea what this script typeface is / know of any around that have similar properties?
Forgive the mostly poor quality of the image.
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.
Logotype for a small vintage clothing shop. Targeted largely to women, the client wanted a type-driven identity. The inventory is hand-picked vintage and sells to a trendy audience. After a bunch of cycles on numerous customized typefaces, we've centered at this direction. Some subtle things like the terminals, the 'e','r' and 'p' giving it a more character, I wanted a little old-style reference w/out being blatant, e.g. using a historical type.
You'll probably never guess what type I started with... :)
Would love any/all thoughts, thanks!
Looking for suggestions on a font very similar to the attached.
Dom Diagonal Bold is so far the best I've identified. http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/dom-casual/dom-diagonal-bold/
im looking for a font similar to these blocky, 50s / 60s era retro fonts.
does not need to be an exact match... just something in the ballpark.
Maybe I'm just using the wrong keywords, but I'm finding this surprisingly hard to find on Google. I'm hoping the Typophile think-tank can help point me in the right direction. :-)
We're rebranding a company that was founded in the early 19th century (yes, they're *that* old) in the United States, and we're trying to find authentic typefaces from the era, or modern reinterpretations that offer a comparable effect.
I don't know what the early 19th-century designers used, whether they were American typefaces or imported, but whatever was relatively common at the time for promotional materials, we're hoping to emulate as closely as reasonably possible.
Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
This script was featured in the recently published book, Artistic Printing. It's labeled as "Indestructible Script" circa 1895. Appears to have been created by the Indestructible Type Company, of Chicago, patent pending Lindsay Type Foundry.
I've searched high and low (What the Font + every major & not-so-major foundry I can think of) and haven't found this script anywhere! Surely something this lovely hasn't died, or has at least been resurrected?
Here's a font I've seen before and probably even have on my hd, but i can't figure out what it is. Any ideas? It's all about the "g".
Please me out and let me know what this typeface is? I know I've seen it before but what is it? I would like the one that says post card and also the one that says rsvp.
thanks in advance!
Please help me out...I did this YEARS ago and I can't find the editable file and I can't remember which typefaces I used. I need to know both of them (script and serif) because one of my clients wants me to use them.
thanks in advance!!!
Looking for something similar to this retro/vintage script font (used on an 80s portuguese tv show).
The letters aren't even the same so this is probably all handwritten - but I'm desperately looking for something like this.
The words are cut - it read 'ora' and 'olha' (the complete words would be 'agora escolha').
Thanks in advance!
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.
I was wondering if anyone knew if there were any typefaces that looked like the the ones used on the vintage lemonade tin signs.
Thanks in advance.
good morning from WET southern california!
can a good-hearted font fan help a struggling band??
this logo (which is also my profile logo)is hand drawn, BUT
if anyone knows a good base font to start with, i'd be very grateful! We need to re-create this into our name "RISTBAND" for our album cover.
I was referred to this site from a "font fan". I know this is a hand drawing, but maybe someone out there knows something! This vintage hand drawn RCA logo is the inspiration for our album cover. if anyone knows a similar font i can use to get close, I'll add the lightning bolt with our graphic artist. our name is
" ristband " so the "R" and "A" need to be pretty exact.
here are other links:
this one's the best
you can reach me at
THANKS IF YOURE READING THIS!!!
I'm specifically looking for an easy way to outline and offset type similar to the examples I've attached. However, I would also be interested in any other vintage type effect tips and tutorials anyone has to share. If anyone can help that'd be great.
I am finally giving a lecture on my vast collection of handmade typography used by merchants to mark pieces of cloth that were sent around the world from manchester, England in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The type was handmade, by hammering copper strips into fruit wood blocks, and many fonts are unique to the textile trade. I have never shown these items before and am hoping that someone will be able to make use or at least be inspired by this unseen part of typographic history.
The Type Directors Club, based in the Garment District of NYC, seems a perfect location for this lecture. I will be showing original sample books, blocks, lettering and describing the history of this long gone typography.
