    answered Looking for the font of this Saints Rogue logo

    It would appear to be Imogen Agnes
  7. My best friend owns a clothing company called Saints Rogue (www.saintsrogue.com). I want to find the font that her logo designer used on her website in the words "Saints Rogue" and "Never Miss An Update". She has tried asking her designer, but she hasn't gotten back to us yet :(. I'm searching for this exact same font please. It doesn't matter if its free or costly. Im in dire need of help please.

    Bruce Moody: Fresh Out font

    You could want to look for keywords like "brush", "ink", "Japanese ink", "Chinese ink", and perhaps, as Kevin's suggestion exemplifies, also "horror". Here a couple more suggestions for typefaces in a similar vein: download at MyFonts download at MyFonts

    Bruce Moody: Fresh Out font

    Well, I am amazed at the expertise on this forum and most thankful for the assistance!

    Bruce Moody: Fresh Out font

    Have to agree with Greg—given the age of the original and that I am not finding a match anywhere, I suspect it is lettering, not a typeface. Similar: The Black Festival

    Bruce Moody: Fresh Out font

    I would deeply suspect that this is lettering you probably want some kind of marker pen, or brush font two examples amongst many are Lucky Fellas & Freeland.
  12. My current record company is wanting to create a new CD using the font from one of my old records. I no longer have the original proof and I am seeking to locate the one we previously used or a very close substitute. The original cover for Fresh Out! was created in 1981 by Richard Paul Thompson's advertising company in Houston, Texas that I contracted with to prepare the cover.

    Stop Sign Font

    To clarify: there is no need to have a font to write STOP on a sign. All is needed, as seen in your sample, are 12 quarter-circle arcs and some straight blocks. There are digital typefaces that mimic this kind of construction, and you can make one yourself, but the letters on the sign were almost certainly built, not designed. The reason why Bebas looks similar is because it’s based on Alternate Gothic, which, not unlike DIN, draws inspiration from this kind of engineered lettering, but then adds typographic improvements like the spline of |S|.

    Stop Sign Font

    Hello, Once again i'm on a mission to find a school bus font, this time for the stop sign. I have a pretty good idea for the TOP but not the S. For the T, O, and P I think it is Bebas, its close but then if we look at the S is nothing like it. So it has to be a mix of fonts. This picture was taken this year and it was built in around 2017. If anyone could help me figure out what S is that would be great. Here are some pictures.

    Speculative glyph design

    @Andre Simard typedesign Good point about most currencies using signs based on uppercase letters, which would help distinguish a cent (¢) from a colón (₡), for example, but it’s not always the case (pun intended). The fact that they are mostly used with numbers, however, doesn’t hold for me. For one, there are plenty of lowercase based signs and symbols used with numbers, and because of that they could be easier to distinguish from the surrounding figures. Also, my design has an ascender, so it would sit against lining numerals at least as well as the Turkish lira sign does. Lastly, a |B| with just one implied vertical stroke instead of the two present in the encoded sign would be a less busy design, and probably an improvement.

    Speculative glyph design

    Those, to me, are unrelated examples as they did not contain, and their names aren’t derived from, a preexisting unit. And, by the way, the pound sign (from the Latin libra) uses a script capital |L|, while the symbol for litre uses a lowercase script |l|: ℓ. My grievance was about choosing a meaningful starting point for the sign. That doesn’t automatically mean it will work out well, as demonstrated by your second example: before I saw someone pointing out that Adobe choose an uncial |E| as the model for the euro sign, I (and most people I know) have always seen it as a crossed |C|. In any case, aside from the bytecoin (sorry, Bitcoin) sign, I wondered about any other example of speculative glyph design one can think of.

    Speculative glyph design

    That doesn’t bother me a byte, I mean bit. 😉 ₿ is a unique symbol with its own unique codepoint with its own defined definition: Bitcoin. I don’t see the meaning “Byte” in there, such as I don’t see the unit “energy” in 10 €, “liters” in 10 £ and so on.
  19. Andre Simard typedesign

    Speculative glyph design

    Even if it you drew a good design, as a graphic designer, I prefer using caps B with one or two bars, as the dollar, yen or pound sign $, ¥, £. Those currency are mostly used with numbers ($45, 450 £, 300 ¥) which would be more difficult to see in a body text if it was draw using lower case letter. You talk about the newish Russian ruble (₽ ), to my point of view it is drawn on a capital letter, same for the Turkish lira.
  20. Riccardo Sartori

    Speculative glyph design

    Apparently, more than a year ago, the Bitcoin sign was added to the Unicode Standard: ₿. The symbol started as a logo, and is arguably rather ugly as a currency sign. But what irks me the most is the use of the capital |B| as a base: B is the symbol for byte, not bit. So, in a bit (!) of speculative glyph design, let’s imagine a world in which it would make sense to add a Bitcoin sign to Unicode, and in which it would be done with some thought. Here are my offerings: They could be seen as the same design in different typeface styles, or variations on the same idea. There is a chance it already exists as an alchemical symbol or IPA extension, and I reckon it has similarities with the newish Russian ruble (₽) and Turkish lira (₺) signs, but I don’t dislike the hint of a |t| in the sans serif variation. So, anyone else would like to engage in some pointless speculative glyph design?

    ARTIDOTE Font

    Speaking of alternates, Vinatage with alternate |E|H| (not shown below) is a better match than Noir for the |B|. download at MyFonts Also similar, from the same foundry, Empire.
  24. Greg Yerbury

    ARTIDOTE Font

    Madera using the alternative R is close but there are a number of similar fonts and so more letters would be needed to be clear which font it is.
  25. Riccardo Sartori

    ARTIDOTE Font

    Even with better samples, I can”t find an exact match. One similar alternative: download at MyFonts
