Hi, I'm working on the re-design of a sports magazine. I've decided upon Olsen as the text font and I'm looking for a sans to use for heads, decks and sidebars - and therefore need a font with a variety of weights and itals. At the moment I'm using Trade Gothic Cond for heads and regular for sidebars. I also have Akzidenz, Eurostile, Futura, Helvetica, Interstate, Franklin Gothic, Gil and Univers as possible alternatives. Olsen has double storey a's + g's should my sans have the same? or should it contrast more? Any suggestions from what I already have, or should consider to purchase would be appreciated. thanks.
Is there a fast way in Indesign to change biblical text imported from the internet the includes nikud into the appropriate unicode sign.
The imported text is built - letter, nikud, dagesh
I would like to change to - letter+dagesh glyph, nikud
Mrs. Eaves is a great font. However I have a client who doesn't see it that way. I am looking for an alternative with a taller x-height and possibly a bit more condensed. Perpetua is close, but not a winner.
Looking for an ID on this pretty inline display font used for the HAUTE logo
Many thanks for any help in advance,

In 2002, the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter changed from broadsheet to tabloid – a change that came along with a major impact on DN’s journalism, editing and design. Pangea design’s Creative Director, Örjan Nordling, had already worked with DN as a design consultant in 1996. In 2000, DN had been redesigned under the leadership of Mario Garcia. For the new design Nordling had created DN Bodoni exclusively for Dagens Nyheter. The change to tabloid called for a more compact setting and Pangea design was commissioned to produce a matching sans serif for Sweden’s largest daily newspaper. This became DN Grotesk which now has evolved into the FontFont Library’s newest sans serif family FF Dagny.
For the FontFont Library several adjustments were made by Örjan Nordling with assistance from his colleague Göran Söderström, the contrast in stroke thickness was reduced for even better legibility in small sizes, and characters were redesigned together with the FontFont TypeDepartment. By changing the oblique lowercase “a” to a single storey design, FF Dagny now has true italics. The family now includes a range of consistent weights from Thin to Black. Furthermore the typeface has been carefully hinted for better screen resolution, making it well suited for use in both analogue and digital applications. The name Dagny is an abbreviation of Dagens Nyheter as well as an old nordic female name meaning “new day”.
For a limited time, you can try FF Dagny OT Thin for free. To download the font and to get more information on the creation of FF Dagny, which is part of the current FontFont Release 49, check the The FontFeed.
You know what I’m taking about. Discuss.
Just kidding. Here’s my question: How do I access the characters in some of my fonts? Usually when I try to use some kind of webdings-style font in PS I can’t access the characters displayed in the font preview in (I use a mac) fontbook. I’ve been told these are “pi” fonts or something and that I can use the International palette thingy to use these fonts but the ones I want don’t show up in the list. Can someone please help me here?
I’ve been tasked with adding to the sidebar of this website: www.aquinasacademy.com but can’t for the life of me figure out what font was used.
could anyone please help me to identify this font?
If you know... let me know... thanks!

This is my first post, and just as a slight apology, I'm a designer and not even close to a typographer, so take it easy on me. All that being said... here's a font I made one afternoon.
If you'd like to see a few more images: http://www.everythingsbeendone.com/pancake.html
Annoying, but seems harmless... font designed in TypeTool 3 and FDK 2.5 on Win 7. There's a similar issue with the League of Movable Type's Linden Hill (but its icon shows a sigma, square root, notequal). My guess is something to do with codepages. TIA
Anyone know wht is this logo...it is just like embossing work. may i get solid colors clipart work ........or anything more information about it
First time posting a design on Typophile. The following design is based on photographs taken while visiting the dominican republic (see photo below for source):
Let me know what you think!

This is STEREOTYPE yo!
Hello, I am in my first typography class and our instructor has given us the wonderful task of developing our own typeface. its pretty fun I must say.
Anyways here is the begining of my typeface "STEREOTYPE"
In another thread, William Berkson wrote:
For example, generally, overshoots are said to work in the 2-3% range. But it is also argued that they should be different for bold characters and pointed characters. And Matthew Carter has said that he generally thinks that the S needs slightly less overshoot to look balanced.
An overshoot question for type designers: within a given font
Do you stick to two heights in your designs (one for flat and one for curved/pointed);
Or do you use three (flat, curve, and pointed);
Or do you break it down further?
Given the topic of DRM and how it might—hopefully-freaking-NOT—affect fonts, I thought this was interesting.
