    Trying to match vintage Agua house sign font

    Probably faster to redraw than finding alternatives.
  3. Any tips on a similar sans serif font I could use to re create this sign? I'll extrude in the same way the sign has been made. Thank you 🙂

  5. It’s a custom version of FS Sinclair: https://www.fontsmith.com/fonts/fs-sinclair
  6. Hi there! Online identificartors gave me some awful results. Can you help me with this one? Do you think it may be customized? https://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_for_the_hundred.php The website has it as "hundred-ball", but it might be just a rename. https://www.thehundred.com/ Thanks!

  9. Hello. I'm looking for this font used in this geography textbook called "The blue marble: an introduction to geography". https://books.google.com.au/books?id=GpoY-YvCNg8C&lpg=PP1&pg=PP1#v=onepage&q&f=false Thank you

    Capital Sharp S designs. The good, the bad and the ugly.

    For the record, here's my take on the matter. The form I propose is essentially to Dresden what Zehlendorf is to Leipzig. I like to use the name Zürich for it, but it's not in widespread use yet. 😉
  11. Ah now it makes perfect sense. I only have HLF Elixir and couldn't work out for the life in me, why those glyphs were missing. Actually now I see Emporium is slightly lighter in weight also. Well done Riccardo.

    Tomorrow by Just in Type

  15. What I meant with my latest post is that (as suggested by ReflexBlueHorror) the sample is composed using two typefaces. The -> Emporium Incomplete -> Elixir History of -> Emporium Netflix’s -> Elixir A series of -> Emporium Unfortunate -> Elixir Events -> Emporium
  16. This is LHF Elixir also by Mark Searfoss, my version from 2015 doesn't have exactly the same alternative glyphs, maybe there is a later version or Mark customised it especially for Netflix.
  17. Thanks Riccardo - it does indeed! I'm going to have a close look at Searfoss' fonts because I suspect they're all in the book. The fonts in the Netflix series itself (https://fontmeme.com/a-series-of-unfortunate-events-font/) were Bickley Script http://myfonts.us/td-6xPeiJ a modified version of Decotura/Civet http://myfonts.us/td-VuRrVc and Esmeralda https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/sudtipos/esmeralda-pro/ The making-of book is beautifully designed and in-keeping with the TV series' aesthetic, but from what I can see it's unrelated in terms of the actual type assets used.

    Type Directory

    Type Directory shows 1,500 typefaces are organized by category – Serif, Sans Serif, Display, Script and Symbols & Dingbats – and subsequently arranged by recognized sub-categories. This allows the reader to make a direct comparison of typefaces with a similar appearance, thus facilitating a deeper understanding of the design and selection process. A visual celebration of the craft, innovation and beauty of these letterforms is presented throughout, from classic typefaces like Garamond, Bodoni and Times through to the contemporary Bliss, Gotham and Meta. Author Peter Dawson co-founded his design practice, Grade, in 2000. He is a fellow and a former chair and board member of the International Society of Typographic Designers, and has also acted as a visiting typography lecturer at a number of universities.

    Visionbay Solutions font

    The S almost doesn't seem to belong with the rest of the letters. I guess being hand lettered is a strong possibility.
  20. George Thomas

    Visionbay Solutions font

    That's been modified (lc /i), and possibly entirely handlettered.
  21. Another typeface from the same designer seems to offer the rest of the letters: See also the link at the bottom:

    That's fine. Thank you!

    The Lost Art of Paste-Up

    Me too Gecko, me too, and always with the Light Box/Table. A lot of “physical” work, and a mistake was much harder to solve, that’s why, among other things, you needed a good background in learning. Nowadays someone with a computer and a program tells you he is a designer, and does not even know what is spacing letters... at least here in Spain. And sorry for my rusty english today... hard to say what I wanted to say.

    The Lost Art of Paste-Up

    That's exactly as I started out. Cutting and pasting, as a finished artist, very demanding and very tedious, but satisfying and rewarding when you see the finished piece. Ah those were the days.
  25. If you look at their samples, you can spot the right |E|.
  26. Yes I thought of Emporium, sadly I don't have it in my collection to check for alternatives. Maybe you could email Mark Searfoss and ask him directly, he may have been commissioned by Netflix for the custom font.
