I'm trying to find out what the gorgeous typeface on logo and web is. I've been looking at the code but can't seem to find what it is... Any ideas?

Thank you very much in advance.


Kelson Sans

I keep seeing this one in old East German books and cannot find any information on it. Similar fonts used in East Germany include "Fundamental Grotesk", "Super Grotesk", and of course "Futura" but this one is not like any of those. If a digital version can't be found - which is likely - I'd like to at least know its name. Any ideas?

Lastly, if you don't know, how would you suggest researching an old type like this? Traveling to the printing shop, hoping to get some information? Finding experts on old type (does that even exist)? What is a good way to track down a forgotten type?

Are retail fonts a form of consumerism or a way for designers to work free from the constraints of a commission?

Here's what Nick Shinn wrote in Issue 6 of the Graphic Design Journal published by the Society of Graphic Designer of Canada in 2006:

I mean look at this. These industrial revolution era fonts were designed by foundries which by then were independent of printers and publishers and used in the most commercial ways. They are more interesting to us today than the commissioned Times New Roman.

What do you think of retail fonts?

Looks like Fairfield Heavy, vertically squished and horizontally skewed for that faux-italic look.

I know that the topic of appropriate fonts for code has come up quite a few times on Typophile. I spend a good portion of my time in code of one kind or another, and find myself using mono width fonts very infrequently. To many programmers, it's a heresy, but I can't really see any good reasons to use mono-width, except when the output depends on uniform character widths for formatting like in the shell.

Are there any other variable width programmers out there? What types do you use? I usually use Verdana, because it's pretty unambiguous on the screen (particularly the braces/brackets/parens).

Hello everyone,

This is my first post and I am wondering if anyone who has a little bit more knowledge than myself can help me out. I am working on a packaging project just now which the brand is using Browns as it's main typeface. On the package we have designed it to support multiple different typeface on the front and the back of the package.

I need a typeface that is similar to Browns but can be used in the following languages: German, Spanish, French, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Slovenian and Turkish.

I see the modern has become the look of Typophile for the time being adding a zesty Italian flavor. Time for espresso and a conolli to celebrate :-)


‹ Opinions on tombstone font and/or design? Hardys: a new custom typeface. ›

I want to use a bold sans serif. I've been working with Franklin Gothic in heavy and book, because it has a really friendly personality. I just want something with radius corners instead of sharp corners. I've been searching pretty carefully but everything is either too stylized or retro or playful. I'm just looking for something simple and sophisticated that looks wholesome and good-natured.

Thanks in advance for any input!

hello! since last year im designing a text typography with the help from a typographer of my University. Now i went a few days ago to the streets to search ideas and i found one lettering from a paint car shop. there wasnt the all alphabeth but i try to design it completely and this was my result.(i think its like a modular system)

Hi, I remember seeing an experimental art book, where all the content looks similar to this image.
I think its some kind of story, with black and while pictures and floating typography. (unesco or something like that ??)

Thought I might try here. thanks.

Hola Amigos!

Are you agree with the "one person foundry"
Industry? or is not easy at all to starting as one? No, i guess...

I know that the union makes the power, what you think?

I need Coffee, a computer, to buy Fontographer,

And nice font ideas..
