comment What the font used for this old warehouse sign?
If it's a physical sign from the 1930s it's quite likely that it's not a typeface that has a digital font you can get - but those As are very distinctive, there might be an art deco sans serif that is very similar

comment Is this bad kerning, or is there a space missing?
For "what to implement" you'll need to tell us in what this text is. Is it on web, an app, in something like InDesign or Photoshop, etc? Or is it just pixels in an image file like a PNG or GIF?

comment Examples of “square” fonts
Sure, that's why I said "Related (not identical)". Perfectly square fonts are very very rare. You can find near-square fonts by choosing wide fonts on a site that lets you filter by width (Typekit is one example, but that only covers Adobe's font library). Are you looking for perfectly square characters (in which case you'll also need to limit to monospaced fonts), or just near-square?

comment Structured pattern, random elements in Illustrator
If you can summarise the key points of that article (use a grid, setting up the pattern, etc) that'd make a really good, useful answer that'll still be useful if that link goes down.

comment How to create mockup like this?
These particular ones look like photos. If they're not, they're probably made in more specialist 3D software (though just taking photos would be so much easier, cheaper and more realistic...). If you're interested in putting 2D designs on 3D mockups, check out graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/20597/… and the questions it links to

comment Why is it so customary to put a picture in center of a QR Code in China?
The barrier is called "actually buying the movie"...

comment Why is it so customary to put a picture in center of a QR Code in China?
I guess an example would be - if you had a QR code on a poster advertising a film out on DVD, if the QR code contained a 'play' icon you'd understand that it'll play a trailer, if it contains a shopping cart icon you'll understand it'll take you to buy the DVD, etc?

comment In a sentence ending with a bold or italicised word, does the period need to be bold/italicised too?
This is what I do. To me, "Are we really in Bradford?" reads differently to "Are we really in Bradford?" - the former is really pushing for a direct answer, the latter is musing on the idea of being in Bradford.

"analphabetic symbols" sound painful...

comment Web page animation vs. adding simple sound
While I'm sure it's possible, unexpected sound and Flash are two of the most unpopular things you can add to a web page... For sound, if your user is in a room with a sleeping baby/partner, or a quiet public building like a college library or cafe, or an office, the moment they hear sound they weren't expecting from your page they'll close the tab and never come back. For Flash, no modern mobile/tablet browsers support flash well, and even many desktop browsers give a "Do you want to activate this plugin" warning. Don't do it! Or at least, have it off by default and let people turn it on.

It's great that this answer has a clear reference, but it doesn't yet answer the question: how would it apply to this sentance? Or this one. These don't contain nesting; so it's not yet clear how this rule applies...

@Jongware looks good, and Open Sans is as unrestricted as a font gets, I'd put that as an answer
