Hi, can anyone tell me what typeface is this one used by Giovanni Pintori for the Lerreta 22 advertisement? thank you!

Hello All,
I'm looking for an alternative to the fantastic Knockout by Hoefler & Frere-Jones...
I'm trying to recreate a vintage concert poster, which features many weights and widths of classic gothic sans serifs, and am hoping to find something with a large selection of widths and weights like Knockout...
I love Knockout, just trying to see if I can find something more unique...
Thanks!

Just wondering if anyone has live contact info for Judith. No replies to things sent to her PO box.

hello everybody, i need help, what is the font of this image, please says me, thank you

Hello,

I know this isn't directly type related but I am looking for a good blank T-shirt company that carries all of the colors in the rainbow in infant sizes. I have looked all over the place and all I can find are cheesy pastels. I am looking for some good rich bold colors. Anyone have an idea? Please contact me : jeff@jeeto.com.

If I am able to work with a recommendation you have I will send you a canvas hot off the press from our company : http://www.jeeto.com. Ill sign it myself and make you all happy and stuff.

Thanks in advance!

Hello folks,
I have been asked to track down a typeface called Volgare. I've done some research on the net and found out it was developed by Stephen Farrell from Slip Studios. Most of his fonts are licenced through [T-26] but not this one. Does anyone know the font and if it is commercially available?

Hey friends,

I was wondering, can anyone identify the typeface used in the California Flag? Is this even a font that can be bought as an electronic file? Gracias for your time.

50 points to anyone who can outline in detail the differences (besides character sets*) between Lucida Grande and Lucida Sans Unicode. Go!

* In addition to the entire Lucida Sans character set, Lucida Grande supports Arabic and Thai scripts.

Myriad CAD is a variant inside of Acrobat 9 Reader. Did you notice that lovely lowercase “a”?

Anyone got any info on special font?

Perhaps we’ll see this “a” in a future Myriad release.

(How the h*ck do I set a signature to be permanent?)

A question comes to my mind over and over: in many cases, actually you must buy the font and prove it by yourself to be sure if the font is really what you need. And it is very frustrating when not. IMHO, text samples in PDF are poor substitutes of “the real thing”.

What are the type designer/vendor options? To offer a demo/free font, with some (important) glyphs missing? Some kind of devolution policy?

And what are the user options? To buy a single weight, prove it, and only buy the complete family if it works fine? To check if some friend already has the font, go to his/her computer and prove it there?

Any thoughts welcome.

Does anybody know how to use Spiro on a mac?
It is possible to work like a FontLab plugin or macro?
I tried to run ppedit app with no sucess. Thank you!

There was recent mention of the Bringhurst "bible" and its focus on book typography.
I looked at the book I'm presently reading. A somewhat anecdotal approach for generalization, but a pretty typical example of what's out there.
The book is a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes, and made the New York Times Bestseller list, so there is absolutely no excuse for the cheap and shoddy typographic design, which, according to Mr Bringhurst, dishonors the text.

It severely pains me to read the damn godless thing, which is frustrating, as it's quite interesting, and I would like to finish it.

Here are a few of the issues.
.

  1. The cover. A bit dreary, but nothing terribly wrong, apart from a bit of sheep shagging. The question that must be asked though, is why this bears absolutely no relationship to the design of either the title page or the main text. Isn't there something horribly wrong with this institutionalized norm?
    .

  1. The very first page. Right off the bat, faux small caps!
    .

  1. The title page.
    .

  1. Main text. Where are the margins? There's nowhere to put my thumbs! It's incredibly dysfunctional to be holding the book at the top as one reads the bottom of the page, causing shadows, and making one's arms ache.
    .

  1. Tabular lining figures. This is a book with a lot of numbers in the text, so wouldn't that be a tip-off to the publisher that it might end up looking like a technical manual? Didn't they notice? There's nothing inherently wrong with the Century style of face for text--except that surely, in this day and age of InDesign and all the marvellously-featured fonts that Adobe bundles with it, a book publisher would use a typeface that has old-style figures, or at the very least, proportional figures? Finally, a small thing; it would have been better to not break lines between the numbers and "Hz". And wouldn't ff ligatures be nice?!

Inspired by Breim's Number test ( see below )

I thought - Hey, what if I did that for letters? No doubt this is silly in comparison to using common kerning pairs informed by language frequency data. But I found it useful while working on my monospace. And it let's you look for a specific pair quite quickly, as well as letting problems 'announce themselves' to a certain extent. In any event if you find it useful - great! If you care to comment or suggest how to extend the idea for puctuation for instance, that would be interesting. I may make one for diacritics later if folk are keen. And as always if this is stupid feel free to explain why.

Hi all, I'm looking for a serif (better not be slab or anything too modern) that is designed by a woman. Or at least its design process should include a woman.

Currently I have found Mrs. Eaves (which we don't want for its poor on-screen performance), JAF Garamond (co-designed by Shoko Mugikara and Tim Ahrens, but it is, alas, unreleased), and MVB Verdigris (designed by a male, and the font file is produced by a woman). Any suggestions?

I was wondering if you guys could help me come up with some type themed battles for http://somethingvssomething.com/

I feel like David Carson needs to be in there somewhere maybe. Or Helvetica vs. Arial.

Hello,

I'm just curious about how you all make typeface decisions for clients when you dont have a licence for a particular typeface?

I know that Fontshop and most foundry websites have functionality to preview any text with a choice of sizing etc. This is helpful for having a quick look, but its not really flexible in that there is no kerning control, and nuisance backgrounds make them hard to work with for mocking up a design. I understand that foundrys can't be distributing typefaces in the hope that people will buy licences if they actually use it, because we all know that a lot of people simply wouldn't.

I have a logo to redesign for a business, and I dont know how to go about making the choice. I cant develop finished artwork with different faces without buying the licences, and the value of the job means that I cant afford to buy several.

I guess I can present type samples and gauge which one they like, and work from there. Is that something designers often do? Or are you lucky enough to have a wide range of typefaces at your disposal?

Thanks,
Jonny

Normally I wouldn't really consider using a "slab" serif for text but it seems to me that Nexus Mix is a very good one.

It's for a 30-some page guide, not sure what it'll be set in yet, but I suspect either 11 or 12.

Anyone ever used it (Mix) for text? I don't own it yet so I cannot try it and the serif out except for the specimens they provide on the 'net.

Thanks,

Pierre-Luc

To @font-face or not to @font-face...

I am designing a CSS for a site I am building and was going to just designate the type to be serif (Georgia, Times etc). The I thought about using their typeface instead.

The face is Casablanca Antique and it is a Corel font from 1992. I have no idea where I got it from but it appears to be distributed widely for free (I know I did not buy it).

I have not done web in a long time and am not sure of the pros/cons of using @font-face.

Can anyone please advise?

Thanks,
Jay

The Tokyo-based magazine Pingmag occasionally writes about typography. Today there's an article about Iranian Typography. Check it out.

A friend told me that Font Book messes up your ram. Any recommendations for a good typeface management program?

There seems to be so many versions. I am designing a book with Caslon Book and would like to pull out some quotes, parts of which are in italic. Caslon's italic looks a bit messy to me. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you ...

A couple of days ago I watched a documentary on archaeologists digging in Egypt. They had pre-printed forms to take notes. Now, take a guess what the pre-printed font on those forms was. (hint: If they’d been digging in Switzerland it would have been Helvetica.)

Hi,
This is my first post here so please excuse me if this question has been asked before. I have the job of purchasing a font library for our Repro. department, the question is " Which is the best suited for a Repro department, Open Type or Postscript? "

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I am looking for an alternative to BPscript

I find BPscript nice but a little difficult to use. I am looking for a children oriented, elegant alternative. Any suggestion would be great. Many thanks in advance.
