Inside Out

cover_io.jpg

I’m not sure what the masthead of this Australian interior design magazine is set in. Closest I got to was Placard MT Condensed but the “E” is different. Headings set in Neutraface and DIN.

Header at the top of the page is set in Rockwell Extra Bold.

Header set in Neutraface and the body text is set in Aetna JY 2 Medium.

No idea what script font this is. Pretty bad at identifying them. Anyone know?

It’s Emily Austin.

We should add links to the fonts identified, so that people can immediately see whether we’ve identified them correctly.

This mag has so many of my fave fonts. I love.

The masthead is set in Garage Gothic Bold (and too loosely, I think).

Yay, I seem to recall that you identified a font like this on typophile a long time ago. Of course, I only managed to google that now that you’ve identified it again.

I was looking at all the roundeds, but they’re all too rounded.

Do you find that you have to tighten the kerning for many fonts when you use them at display sizes? Or is that a given?

not sure if you already know abt this, might be useful some day.

Yeah, I think the boys use it to identify magazine type. Either that or their (imaginary?) friend, Josh.

I think it’s only useful when you have a lot of characters from the font you want identified, such as a whole magazine full.

Guessing the answers will just give you a crappy, way off answers.

Imaginary?

Haha, my imaginary friend’s called Humphrey, not Josh. =)

Posted by: Randy at May 17, 2005 08:02 PM

Never heard about Humphrey and never seen Josh. Is Humphrey an elephant?

This retired Elderkin is something along the same lines as Garage. Nice.

As far as rounded but squarish letters go (I mean rounded corners and not rounded like VAG Rounded), anything from Fountain’s Imbiss Collection would be nice too, but perhaps slightly cutesy to be very useful?

I don’t know, it still looks like a very cool package to own. Got to think of what I can use it for though.

As far as rounded but not vag-rounded fonts go, FS Albert is pretty sweet.
