Hi vinz, and thanks for the response (and compliment).
Yeah - I don't assume that it would be a cheap service and I know (after attempting myself) that its a very technical and not necessarily fun or fast process. I just assume that there are people out there who do this sort of thing for a fee - just as I get hired as a graphic designer. Usually stuff like this would be by the hour, I would assume as each job/font would require different amounts of work? I guess I'm just trying to get a feel for what the rates would be for this kind of service. It won't be the worst thing in the world if I have to keep doing it myself, but I really find myself loathing it.
So, I'm a graphic designer and I've recently started to create fonts (my first 2 were just accepted here at dafont). I quickly found that while I love creating the glyphs, I don't really like actually doing the technical work in FontLab to put the fonts together so that they have nice ligatures, kerning, etc. - and the accent characters.
Just wondering if any of you font creators that lurk in these forums offer services such as taking a custom font (from an Illustrator file) and bringing it to a final "professional" font file. What would that cost?
Please reply here - or feel free to send me a private message.
Used by Prince on his Purple Rain album.
The capital C looks like its custom, but the rest is Celtic MD.
Glad to help :-)
Avenir Heavy for the large type?
This looks close - not quite as tall, but otherwise looks close.
This looks familiar, but I can't find the font. I've tried WhatTheFont, but no luck.
Bottom font is Tango.
Fuente identificada: Tango
Looks like Impact, but just with a slant
Looks like maybe its been thickened a bit in that image?
From The Walden Font Co. Part of the Wild West Press collection.
Thank you! I was at an antiques flea market last weekend and found a book that used this font on the cover. I felt like the font was haunting me. Luckily, I checked back in here and saw that it was identified.
