  2. I'm trying to figure out the name of this handwriting-style font, found on a summer camp t-shirt from 2016.
  3. A letterpress studio creating limited edition books from a range of beautiful metal type founts – lovingly collected over 27 years. The atelier is Michael Caine's playground – producing his publications, editions of modern European poetry, often illustrated with his own original prints (most recently under the imprint Editions Petropolis). Design/printing projects of every hue subsidise Caine's fanciful work as artist-printer-publisher and he has over 140 book commissions for a wide range of galleries, bibliophilic clubs, publishers, artists, poets, to his name. Small jobbing projects (from business cards to full-size posters) have also kept things ticking over.

    London Black Cab font

    YWFT Maetl, AF Carplates and Lineto Alpha Headline would take the same cab probably.

    Looking for the font on a Vectrex Multicart

    Thank you so much! Carbon is slightly different, but so close that I can use it. Great! Edit: after playing with the font in Photoshop it seems to be exaxt. Please mark thread as solved/answered 🙂

  13. María Ramos: At TYPO Labs 2018, Gerry Leonidas pulled the trigger with a thoughtful presentation: ‘I am now in an environment where the design space is by default way bigger than my ability to imagine it, not just my ability to do something with it’.
  14. Sheez - that was quick - thank you so much - you've nailed it !

    Kurrent Church Record Nr. 2

    Well, this is certainly more information than I could have read. It actually does help quite a bit, because Johannes Rauch and Heinrich Rauch are mentioned later on in the records. I am going to guess that Heinrich was Johannes' son. Thank you very much for your help.
  16. @Paulo , awesome how did you do that.... thank you very much

    Cereal: a new corporate font for Airbnb

    Surprise, just another geometric sans! Without italics (or obliques) even, apparently.* * This is a trend I keep seeing: typefaces with dozens of weights, often several whidths too, but no italics nor obliques. But I find it especially baffling in a corporate type system.
  21. Hi All, I need a font management software geek to help me out! Is there an alternative to Extensis UTC for Windows users? I work for a large organisation, and we are looking for a font management programme to help us be good citizens and keep track of number of users per font, so that we do not exceed the limit for the license. We know that UTC has these capabilities, (centrally linked, recording the number of users per font in an organisation) however, we are put off from using it because of the cost. Is there an alternative, low cost, or free font management tool, (for PCs or PC compatible), which will help our IT department to keep track of the number of users per font? For the record, I assume that software like Suitcase (for macs in this example), is able to activate and deactivate fonts, so as not to slow a computer's performance. However, something as basic as Suitcase will not audit, or report the number of users of a font. So we need something much more advanced than Suitcase. Preferably free, but able to be linked up centrally so as to count the number of users per font in a single organisation. Any help greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  22. Can you help me with this gaming fonts names here are the links thank you guys
  23. Original source is from here: https://graduationshow2017.sandberg.nl/daniel-seemayer From what I can gather, this design was created in 2017, but I'm unsure of the typeface's original creation date. Alternatives are fine. Mostly looking for a typeface with a similar G and C. I've attached some screenshots, but if you need more references, please click here: http://danielseemayer.tumblr.com/
