    Latin and Kanji/Hanzi. Need short consultation.

    It seems an interesting exercise. Unfortunately, I’m not familiar enough with CJK characters to give an informed opinion. That said, it is sometimes interesting seeing the novel approach to Latin letters from, for example, Japanese type designers. Also, it could be useful explaining a bit more the motivation and reasoning behind the experiment.

    Arcade Game Typography

    Arcade Game Typography presents readers with a fascinating new world of typography: the pixel typeface. Video game designers of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s faced color and resolution limitations that stimulated incredible creativity. With each letter having to exist in a small pixel grid, artists began to use clever techniques to create elegant character sets within a tiny canvas. This book presents typefaces on a dynamic and decorative grid, taking reference from high-end type specimens while adding a suitably playful twist. Arcade Game Typography recreates that visual aesthetic, fizzing with life and color. Featuring pixel typefaces carefully selected from the first decades of arcade video games, Arcade Game Typographypresents a completist survey of a previously undocumented outsider typography movement, accompanied by insightful commentary from author Toshi Omagari, a Monotype typeface designer himself. Gathering an eclectic range of typography, from hit games such as Super Sprint, Marble Madness, and Space Harrier to countless lesser-known gems, Arcade Game Typography is a vivid nostalgia trip for gamers, designers, and illustrators alike.
  9. Not a typeface: That said, an approximation could be Doriss Girls (spelling “2 1Il|): download at MyFonts download at MyFonts Or Trade Gothic Display (spelling “2i”), but you would need to add the lighter inline: download at MyFonts For better accuracy, barring drawing it from scratch, it could probably be better starting with a suitable (in terms of width and weight) solid or inline sans serif with a comparable construction of |2| (using |I| or |l| for |1|) and adding the bevelling with your graphics program of choice. Jeff Levine, to make just one example, seems to offer several of this kind of sign-painting-inspired designs.

    A New Home for Letterform Archive

    “A few months ago our landlord informed us that they wanted Letterform Archive out of the building. We urgently need a new home. Luckily, we found the one we always imagined. Now you can make it a reality.”

  13. Thank you both very much! This was killing me 😉 Thanks also for the tip regarding what appears to be outlined or otherwise doctored type treatment

    answered Title Font for Flair Chocolatier chocolates

    Appear to be Belleson Luxury Script, though the B is either an alternate character, custom, or another typeface.

    answered Stranger Things “Starcourt Mall” fonts

    I cannot find any historical or revival typeface matching the sample (number of lines, letter shapes, etc.). I think it is most probably custom, starting from scratch or, rather than from a lined font, from a solid strictly geometric sans "carved" to resemble the actual neon sign. As for "Mall", it appears to also be custom, based on Autograf (or both are based on some original lettering from the '80s). download at MyFonts
  18. Hi, What could this font be? Helvetica? Many thanks in advance!
  19. Awesome - thanks!
