I'm working on my first typeface. It's inspired by the city of Copenhagen and it should be used for titles or posters. Any critique welcome.

Lowercase ‘m’ is emphasized, because it doesn’t look very well for me (any suggestions?) — fixed already.

Thanks,

David

We were told this type was Helvetica for our corporate id. Our primary type is supposed to be Helvetica, which this is not!
Help!

Hi!

Wondering if anyone can name the typeface used in this design (for both numbers and words, looks like). Probably a monospace, but that could also be styling by the designer.

Thank you!!

I am using DIN 1451 Engschrift for headlines on a magazine project. Can anyone suggest a suitable Sans font for the body text please.

Interesting font once again found in the Feb GQ. Fred Woodward must love geometric San serifs!

Slightly similar to MB Vinatage, but with a very distinctive E and S and crossbar on the 7.

Hello everybody! I am pretty new to typeface design but I do have an interest in learning the process of designing my own typeface. This typeface design was intended as a research project, however the deadline's pretty tight so I have only another 2 days to complete the full uppercase and numeral sets.

Basically, I am aiming to design a sans serif, geometric typeface that I like to coin as the "lovechild of Futura and Gotham". I will be taking some characteristics from Futura and Gotham, and combining them to create a softer yet bolder typeface. This typeface was made to be a header font, hence the heavier body weight. I have not gotten all the letters right, so the image seen here is just what I have so far. Also any suggestions to characteristics that I could add to further differentiate my typeface from Futura / Gotham or any other geometric sans serifs that are already out there?

Any critique and suggestion will be very useful at this point. Thank you in advance! :)

PS: This is my first time designing a typeface, so any tips would greatly appreciated too. Cheers!

I was reading the PDF copy of Kandinsky’s ‘On Spiritual in Art’. It is also available in ePub format. So after a while, I switched to the iBooks version (which I generally read in Iowan).

I suddenly realized the typeface used in publishing the book is about a 1000 times more readable than ANY of the iBooks fonts. In face all the iBooks typefaces now look ugly to me.

I am stunned. What is this beautiful typeface? Why is this typeface SO MUCH better for reading than any the ones provided in an app specifically meant for reading? Each word is so clear that it almost leaves an imprint on my brain. In this day and age of retina high resolution screens, why do we not have appropriate typefaces for reading on electronic devices? Or just anything that matches the beautiful printed one in readability?

I am almost depressed because I can clearly tell I love the printed book typeface but am unable to say why exactly. I can understand the effect but am not yet able to discern the cause. Where/how can I learn about how to tell what makes a good typeface good? Any good books?

This is something I have been fiddling around with today. I don't yet have all the letters, so this is almost everything I have so far. Any thoughts/comments/improvements? Worth continuing?

This is my first "serious" typeface, so be gentle ;)

BTW, is this font

Does anyone know which font is used at this website:

http://maaemo.no/

the webfont identification tool says it's a custom font but I can't imagine they made a special font for their website.

Thanks in advance

This font now has 2 editions, the one originally commisioned ( now being hinted a bit more) & an improved version with a bigger set of targets to hit. My focus is now the new version.

The original font was designed :

  • to be used in bitmap mode at 12pt on a pc ( on & off pixels only )

The new design is meant to :

  • look okay in print
  • work as hited bitnmap ( on & off pixels only )
  • and work anti-aliased too ( with grey pixels created by rendering engines ).

Originally I tried to shape my glyphs around the target bitmap at 12pt for PC. But I found out eventually that I was constraining the glyph designs too heavily and creating problems for the bitmaps at larger & smaller sizes. This new font builds on my trial & error experience as well as my new understanding about why monospaced fonts have taken the shapes they have. The latest version does as better job rendering to screen in antialised mode & I think is less ugly when printed.

The latest GIF graphic is simulated PC 12, 24, & 48 pts.

The PDF shows 12 & 72 pts. The 'in typophile' link below doesn't work. This one does.

I have been using Lucida Sans Mono, Lucida Console, Consolas, Courier, Andale mono, Monox, Isonorm, Thordis Mono, Adaptive Mono & Mono 821 as references.

Thanks!

hello everyone, I'd like to show you the sans I'm working on. I still have fix some details to fix like the width of the bold "u", but i think it's getting close to finish and maybe there is something escaping my eye. Could you please comment it?

I've also uploaded a pdf if you want to look at it more closely.

Hello type ID geniuses!

Could anyone help me out with this one, I can't seem to figure it out... I think it might be something fairly new though because it definitely fits in with some other typefaces that currently seem pretty popular.

Thanks!!!
