      I thought all fonts were just 'bastards'.

        Maybe your fonts are PD, but mine aren't!!

            Have you tried a Google search? Not that I think there is such a thing as male or female fonts...

                lol... This is the first I've heard of it too, but I suppose you could genderfy your fonts the same way many languages add gender to different nouns. For instance, a train is male, a bicycle is female, etc.

                I'm still picturing Mr. PD trying to print a stubborn font and crying, "You bastard font!!!"

                  I've heard of orphan fonts. But they're orphans, no one cares about them, no one cares if they're male or female.

                    I'm thinking the same way Ckret is, not "male" or "female," but "masculine" and "feminine."

                    Futura Bold is masculine, Shelley Andante is feminine. But it's really really subjective.

                        in the os9 days when you couldn't match a bitmap font with the outline font or visa versa they were called orphan fonts.

                          Ooh, oh... I get what you mean. Post-script outlines. Those really bug me when that happens.

                                It's an old thread, but I'll jump in.

                                1. Too many people regard designers as simply being those with the tool-using skills to implement client ideas and make suggestions about making things...

                                Looks nice, but as Kayekaye said, the shadows need some work. Shadows are never an even gray. In the real world, the shadows very close to where the balls meet the surface would be nearly black and fade...

                                I'll suggest soaking up everything you're told -- even when it's with a grain of salt. At this point your professors know more than you, and there'll be plenty of time a ways down the road (when you've...

                                I don't think today's typesetting is comparable to Gutenberg's work. It's a bit like comparing the Wright brothers to contemporary aviation engineers. Both Gutenberg and the Wright brothers made huge,...

                                If this is for you as a designer its is way too busy. Do some research and design a much more streamlined layout based on a grid.
