comment Can anyone tell me what font this is, it is a hotel sign in Lanzarote
I suspect it's real hand-lettering, not a font - normally when hand-lettering-style fonts swap in letter variants to make the text look more natural, they do it by letter pairs using ligatures, but here we have two LA combinations and both are different. If it is a font, they made the letters vary in a way I've not seen before. (if it is hand lettering, they did a very good job, it's very consistent!)

Excellent first answer, thanks and welcome to the site!

comment What are the differences between Gill Sans Nova and Gill Sans MT?
Certainly (although many of those new variants are a bit... gratuitous), but what I'm having trouble finding out is what's new within those 18 that were available previously, between the MT and Nova versions.

comment Illustrator timelapse
Here's how some of our users do it on this site (how to record the video, then how to turn it into a frame-by-frame gif - which you could also use to easily change the speed; if you don't want a gif just ignore the last steps)

comment Is it OK to copy a person's likeness in a realistic portrait without their permission?
@cockypup it's literally all I know on the subject... and I have no idea if that site is legit or what regions they cover. If someone wants to take that link and run with it though they should feel free.

What country are you asking about? Here's a detailed article from Digital Media Law Project about "most states" (so presumably USA) which seems relevant - dmlp.org/legal-guide/using-name-or-likeness-another - seems like a likeness in a portrait is legally very simlilar to a likeness in a photo.

comment What web fonts work with Māori macrons?
Ironically, not the one we use for titles on this site - that ā in Māori in the title is clearly substituted from a jarringly heavier font... p.s. this related question might help you find fonts that support your character How to find/browse fonts that include certain rare characters? (unicode)

comment How to turn off InDesign's smart text wrap auto-adjustments that minimise/mitigate breaking words? (make text wrap dumber)
This definitely helped! "Adobe Single-line Composer" is dumb enough for my needs - a few minor attempts at smartness still in where it chops the line, but dumb enough :-) I always thought the justification settings were for justified text only

comment $300 Logo Redesign as “Trial” Project for Possible Full-time Position
+1 this is the best option - if they're serious and it goes well, you can spend an appropriate amount of time on the logo redesign (and you'll be doing it with a better understanding of the company). If it doesn't, they got something basic for what the work was worth.

comment How to find/browse fonts that include certain rare characters? (unicode/international)
@Jongware Ah, I didn't know that was what you meant by "C-fonts". If you put that list as an additional answer it'll definitely deserve an upvote or two.

comment How to find/browse fonts that include certain rare characters? (unicode/international)
Brilliant! About half the results contain my character, which is the best yet - don't know why some results don't but this seems to be a way to see every don't that matches (or at least, most)

Nice - Moderna is near-perfect!

comment Finding a clean, corporate sans font whose capital “A” has vertical sides / a square-ish top?
I suspect you're probably right... and custom is what I was expecting to have to do. But let's see. Agency FB is pretty close, there might be something closer still

comment Finding a clean, corporate sans font whose capital “A” has vertical sides / a square-ish top?
Someone thinks that whether an A has vertical or angled sides is "primarily opinion based"... someone buy that user a protractor. And possibly a copy of "fonts for beginners".

comment Finding a clean, corporate sans font whose capital “A” has vertical sides / a square-ish top?
Nice, closest so far. And wow, that site is... retro. (p.s. I editted the font name and image into your answer; we like to include samples so the answer is still informative if the linked site goes down - not unlikely, looking at that site...)

comment Finding a clean, corporate sans font whose capital “A” has vertical sides / a square-ish top?
Those have the right shaped A but as fonts they're more sci-fi/space in character than the kind of clean corporate font I'm looking for. Thanks, though, Nova's a better example than Bauhaus, I've added it to my question

comment Best way to send layouts with editable text to writers/editors who don't have design software
This sounds promising, I didn't know Acrobat could do that either! The free conversion program is a bit ropey, maybe this is better

comment Real non-destructive way of clonestamp tool in Photoshop
It's a while since I used Photoshop intensively - can't you put the original and the stamp layer in a layer group, then apply your adjustments to the layer group? Can't remember if they allow that

comment Real non-destructive way of clonestamp tool in Photoshop
I do essentially this but while keeping an unedited duplicate layer. So it's non-non-destructive editing, but against a later that had a perfect unaltered copy preserved
