Obviously this is a custom job but does anyone know what the font is based on?


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.

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?

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.


Hello, this is Matt Willey's Timmons typeface, I love this font as well as MFred. Are there any similar fonts on the market? I don't think these are for sale.

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 :)

I am preparing a template for my company, we do market reports... so quite a serious topic.

I was thinking of associating 'New Caledonia LT' and 'Frutiger LT' for the titles. What do you think of this association ?

I would like something that looks 'clever' and 'american'...

Many thanks for your feedback...

Really similar to Futura heavy / century gothic but M is more slanted. Any guesses ?

Help with this please...


Looking for an ID on this classic looking sans serif.

I changed the 'g' to two storey (left the original one as a contextual alternate), and then fiddled with it a bit, and now it looks like this. What do you think? (Sorry, I had to make new discussion to attach the pdf.)

| Attachment | Size | | --- | --- | | Abandon.pdf | 532.3 KB |

character 'a' hook is at the right side.

'M' middle joint is shorter than right and left arm

.'G' is curved.

You can see the attached card.

ditto to Grants comment. userbility goes down.
As far as uniqueness is concerned. Well new "s" is ceratinly interesting but in my opinion not complete. the center slant on the "s" is thicker than the slant the "e", "g" and "a". I am not sure if it is intentional or not but it looks too thick especially in the bold weight. I am also noticing the top counter in the lc "g" is sitting kind of low and not centered. This I suspect may be intentional.
I tell you Joseph, I am a sucker for unusual forms but these days
I find myself regretting certain recent purchases (Sophia from Fontsmith as well as Friendly from Die-Gestalten) because of userbility issues.
I guess Stephan might be right in some ways.
A designer/agency may purchase the new version but will it be used a lot-I am guessing properly not. If one of your goals is exposure of Pill in award winning design the i would suggest going back to basics.


I thought the main font was Frutiger or Myriad, both are wrong.

Also, I'm so tired of looking at it that if someone can identify the secondary font, I'd be grateful.

I recently did some typesetting at Jarrolds Print Museum, in Norwich, England.

I printed with a wood letter typeface, called 'Sans Bold "34". I've created a logo out of this font, and now want to use it for the rest of the identity. Is anyone familiar with this typeface, and could you recommend a computerised version?

Hello! My name is Emy Dalsted and I am a senior at The Art Institute of Phoenix. I am pursuing a degree in graphic design with a minor in typography. I have recently just completed the design of my second typeface. And would like to know what you think abut it, What I can improve on and what you like about it.

Modern Glyph
Designed By: Emy Dalsted

The classification of this font is a modern san serif that is based on a modular square grid with circular rules. There is nothing complicated to this font it is created to be simple and legible at any size.

The primary purpose of this font is to be used as body copy, although it can be scaled to any size and still look great. This font will be good for solving issues where there is hard to read body copy or redundant font choices. Put Modern Glyph in place of any font choice and it will give your project a sharp, clean and sophisticated look.

A fun attribute of this font is that there are optional letter forms with knockouts and fun glyphs that give the font some room to play with, when it is used as a headline type. This will spice a piece up, if that’s exactly what you’re looking for.

Any Ideas?
