New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Just finished a side job [wedding invitations].
Designed 3 covers today. Finished an eight-page spread for our annual catalog.
I recently began working with the Computer zhisotry Museum and will be developing various websites and signage for new and upcoming exhibits. I have found it a challenge to develop clearly legible signs that are readable from a distance using Victorian era fonts. Our Charles Babbage exhibit and website open in September 2007 and I would appreciate any input others may have on the font usage located here;
This is a splash page for the site/exhibit that is coming.
When I saw the poster, I thought... House? Eames? At the same time? In my 'hood? IMUSTGO. And so I did. And it was so super cool. It's the first event of that sort I'd ever been to, so it was all very new to me.
Andy's presentation was a bit about the history of House itself and then lots of good stuff on some of the collaborations they've done (Benguiat, Shag, Richard Neutra, etc) leading up to the beginnings of the collaboration with Eames.
No matter which way you look at it there simply aren't many fonts like this one. Sibyl is a beautiful inline schwabacher rich in structure and exquisitely detailed throughout.
Sibyl is dynamite for branding & logos, food packaging, posters, printed apparel, music CDs and book covers. OpenType & TrueType complete with alternates and ligatures.

Until now I wasn't aware there was this blog feature in typophile.
My primary typogrphic concern at the moment is legibility of typefaces for signage. I'll post some observations and findings here as things progress.
I am new to this place, so let me do some catch-up.
Set 01 was mostly illustration with the exception of the “Designerd” tee. We designed this one for Matthew to wear at a speaking engagement and I just thought that it was really best suited for production and addition to the Chop Shop line.
this one is also available for women folk in American Apparel girly sizes.
Coming around August 1st will be Chop Shop’s second release of tees. This time around we will be featuring more illustration based designs as with Set 01. One being another Tron based theme this time featuring the antagonist in red, an olde style illustration celebrating Sir Freelancelot and this TYPE based tee advertising a designerd’s most attractive asset… his fonts. This design doesn’t leave the women folk out in the cold either with “Boys Want My Fonts” also in the offering.
so far the iPhone lives up to its hype, including posting to community sites from mobile Safari.
After a day I, m typing as fast as I could on the blackjack with about the same error rate. The qwerty is actually as large as the blackjack, but the lack of tactile feedbackdoes have an impact.
More later i'm sure.
anybody knows the what the name of the classic ms dos error typeface????
Yay. My company is sending me up to Seattle, Aug. 1-3. I signed up for 2 workshops on the 2nd.
Looking forward to seeing "Helvetica" and meeting new creatives.
Are there any of you who'd like to meet up w/me?
I have never blogged before, so this is all sort of new and fuzzy to me.
I am a layout and design artist, on-the-job trained at a small newspaper. They didn't pay worth spit, but I received an invaluable education. I'd had a smattering of very limited experience with QuarkXpress 6.0. The paper had just converted from QuarkXpress to InDesign. The day I submitted a despiration job application (part-time clerk typist), they'd lost a graphic designer. I was called; I was interviewed; I was hired (a despiration hire on their part); I was trained. By week two, I was designing full page, full color ads. Baptism with fire on a newspaper printing schedule, no doubt, but one that helped me to finally decide what I want to be when I grow up.
As in ‘not’ type-related: I am currently building a kitchen unit for my other place in Amsterdam. Construction of the cabinets is finished, painting them as well. Next phase: getting the tops (they are being done by a stonemason) and installing it. Probably after the summer vacation, on account of floor insulation that will be done somewhere in the second half of August.
Working with your hands makes a nice change from sitting in front of a computerscreen. : )
How can I measure the rendering speed of different fonts? Is there any tool or website link, I can study?
i was wondering whats the name of this font is
that used in LIVE CONCERT.
Especially, if you look at "C","R","S","G",
C is not fully round shape.G is not there but there is no tail under Spur of the letter G.
I really would like know what font they used. i am pretty sure its new type that its been created by someone.
thank you very much for your help!
p.s its bit similar to franklin gothic. but not exact.
i need to know exact name of this font type.
I am having a hard time recognizing the Typeface of Red Cross. Pls share the knowledge A.S.A.P. Thanks!
Imagine my surprise when, while browsing for comforters at Bed Bath & Beyond, I came across this: a serif drapery rod!
Typophile is made possible through the generosity of sponsors and efforts of volunteers, including time invested by us at Punchcut. We squeak time in on Typophile as often as we can without compromising client commitments.
Typophile gets a lot of traffic. We're seeing about 200,000 unique visitors every month, with actual page "hits" coming in around 300,000 per day. Google likes us. 20,000 Typophile users are depending on us. So we don't take any site changes lightly.
On occasion we have to take the site down for maintenance upgrades. When we do, our general approach is to minimize downtime so that the community can keep moving, discussing and collaborating.
Here are two examples, I can not seem to find their names.
It's so easy to end up with this
I'd just like to point out that I am not responsible for this :-)
So, I'm thinking about giving blogging a go. Per the nature of this site, I'll post on type design and typography, along with other matters related to graphic design. This won't be too constraining since these topics tend to occupy much of my time anyway.
