  2. The cut-off letters (assuming it related to ascenders and/or descenders) is a very typical problem. You need to improve your font metrics. Here is a guide: http://kltf.de/downloads/FontMetrics-kltf.pdf Not sure about the kerning. “Jacked up” can mean anything. We would need a better description to narrow down the problem. P.S. I moved the topic to the Type Design Club.
  3. I have two fonts I had to generate with Fontographer to have both .ttf and .otf. They install and work fine on my Mac and Pages, but my client says that Microsoft Word (used on mac) has cut off parts of the lettering and jacked up all the kerning. I'm in the process of installing MS Word to try to see for myself what is going on, but as far as how to fix it is another thing. Does anyone have any suggestions/solutions or even just familiarity with what I'm talking about?

  6. "Empire of Signs" font idenitification

    It is a Caslon Italic with Swash but I wasn't able to identify the vendor. MyFonts has a version but there are differences (and in my view isn't that close but it may work for you), here: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/lanston/ltc-caslon/swash/

  19. “Juan Bruce’s mature serif family, Noort, is an information architect’s dream. The designer’s complex job of layering information and stylistic design choices can be balanced by Noort’s easily-read nature and analogue details.”
  20. Yes, you are correct! Horizon & Harvard would work also, thank you!
  21. Filmotype was notorious for naming different weights (or, like in this case, widths) of the same typeface with different names (but with the same initial). A practice that has been carried on in the digital versions too.
  22. Original Design Company shut down!

    As far as I know, Geneva was never a Windows system font.
  23. Original Design Company shut down!

    Komb and the subhead appear to be Geneva, a Mac OS and Windows system font,
  24. Goudy Bold; at least, a sign company's version. Widely available.
  25. I think you’re on the right track. It does appear to be a Filmotype face, but perhaps Horizon or Harvard?
