I use Suitcase too and would recommend it as well!

Wow, a thread for typography! What kind of serif faces do you think are the most appropriate for luxury/high fashion? It seems like Didonis dominate the scene pretty well. Know some other cool and elegant ones?

I know bodini and caslon are used a lot. So are avant garde and futura. Vogue uses a form of didot.

Those are elegant indeed. I love didot and Bodoni for their big contrast. I don’t really get why avant garde is so popular though.. I don’t find it that special except for the cut lowercase ’a’. Are you a graphic designer AvantGarde?

No, I just got into fonts and searched for styles fashion magazines used regularly. I also looked through http://www.typophile.com/ for font identification.

^ typophile is very useful

i had to do a little research about Erik van Blokland and Just van Rossum a while ago. together they're LettError. they've got some interesting stuff. in 1990 they introduced 'random fonts', where they used programming to design the typefaces.

here's an interview from Wired magazine

is Futura this?
by Paul Renner


[wikipedia]

It looks pretty simple
Maybe there is a font similar to it
Also there are programs that let you create your own font that you can use for typing on the computer... I don't know any, but I remember seeing them long time ago

Thanks for the advice!! For me Futura has a very specific look (partially because I associate it with Wes Anderson films); despite its simplicity.
