I'm looking for a 3D application that has the ability to create professional looking 3D type, either a specific type based application or more likely a general 3D application for mac, that's easy to use and can get good results from.

Any suggestions would be great, I wondered if there was an industry standard.



I really like this, it's so simple yet impactful. Anybody know what font this is?

It is possible to make proportional Oldstyle figures default in a Opentype font?
And, is there a way to make it work on a «non-design» software (for example MS Word)?
Thank you very much guys.

Hi all,

Is there a way of simultaneously selecting a bunch of kerning pairs in a font (not all), e.g. in the Kerning Table, so that you could then modify them using the Adjust metrics command? I'm running FontLab Studio 5.0.4 on Mac OS 10.4.10.

Sorry if this has already been addressed; my search of Typophile wasn't so thorough.


HI, i'm searching for - Verona, Modena font, where can i find?

Since I wish to leave Saad's early Kufi thread as is, while I wish to get acquainted with Arabic writing history, I open this thread to gather resources about this topic.

As a first step, I'd like to ask Saad which kind of writing is this one, photographed by Eben Sorkin while doing the Arabic class at Reading with Fiona Ross.

This is Chile sans, a typeface for identity and reading. This "new" font its different form my past chile sans font with inverted contrast(who will be in stand by). Well, the concept behind the face is to make a font to be used by chilean graphic designers.
I will post advances for my new Chile sans font from today to the letras latinas 2006 exposition. The font include:
Regular, Bold, Italic, headline and Icons.
This is the current version of Chile, in headline. Your comments are welcome as always :)

Neat new article on PingMag about assorted calligraphic styles on sake bottles:

I just started on a project for infosys and need to know which fonts they are using for the logo (which I assume is a commercial font that is modified) and for their body copy.

I'm looking for a display font for a book about American folk art. I want something funky and handdrawn, but not novelty or wedding-invitation-y. Seems like the vast majority of script faces out there are just silly.

Storm's Rondka is really close, but too slanted for my purposes. I like that it's deliberate, not like dashed-off handwriting, and not too ornamental.

Any suggestions?

I’m looking at buying an HP 1200 to have a small mono postscript printer for testing type. It appears that this will be a solid 1200x1200 DPI level 2 postscript printer that will work with my Mac or any other OS I throw at it. Anyone have horror stories?

Hi, all-
Long-time Typophile visitor, first time forum poster :-)
I wonder if someone could take a look at these three words and tell me where I'm going wrong with the kerning?
Seems so simple, but between the upright L and the angled A and the rounded C and the upright K, etc etc- it's driving me bananas!

Many thanks!

Does anyone read it as LakersGroWnd? (should say LakersGround).
If so, this is one possible solution...

Also does the spacing between the characters look right?
