One family I've recently noticed is the TT Chocolates and the Extra Light looks pretty close to what you need, but note the '1' in the image below is replaced with an uppercase 'i' (as suggested by Chris H in the comments below).

A "web font" is just a font used on the web or on the browser. What these web font generators do is just make your life easier by giving you the necessary css for serving the font to your visitors and converting your font to all file formats you need to make sure the font works cross-browser. Some fonts are considered "web-safe" simply by being so common ...

Picasso was touring an elementary school and viewing the artwork the children had on display. He was amazed at how good it all was. He asked the teacher... "What are you teaching these children such that they are all fantastic artists?" To which, the teacher replied, "I simply know when to take things away from them." At some point, experience ...

You can try some version Bernhard Gothic. This is Extra Light: It's not free and clearly it has different curves than the tube photo. I guess in your application idea the whole presentation with glows and tube frames will be more important than exact curve forms. It should be enough that the glyphs are plausible, technically possible to be and work in a ...

There is no standard definition of "Pro" or "Expert" fonts. It was a term that started in the early 2000's when many foundries updated their fonts to include a wider character range and OpenType features. However there was no consensus between foundries on which character set or which features constituted an expert font, so currently the term means generally ...

PE stands for Pan-European and refers to the character set or variety of glyphs you will find in the font. For example, there is an interesting article about the development of Skolar Sans PE here: https://www.rosettatype.com/blog/2016/02/02/Skolar-Sans-Pan-European From Fontshop: https://www.fontshop.com/content/language-support Pan-European 1 (W06) ...

This is a scam. It is specifically called a "phishing scam". This is a rather long, possibly verbose, answer primarily to help explain as much as possible to hopefully alleviate some of the unsettled feelings you may have over the entire manner. In reality, the only thing you've done wrong is to respond and send money. Phishing: the fraudulent practice ...

You've probably read about commercial typefaces (as opposed to free fonts), which generally can include: more weights grouped into families (eg. not just bold and regular) more glyphs (eg. extended language sets, russian, german, french, asian sets) specialized glyphs (eg. math symbols, icons) ligatures (eg. google this) better kerning and optical ...

There's more than EM and EN spaces (see below). These are used in advanced typesetting to create optical adjustments between elements or to avoid using repeated spaces. So instead of typing Space multiple times to move something, you can use an EM space to have a clean file with no repeated spaces. In extreme cases you can use an EM space with a blown up ...

It is a monospaced font, and these are preferred because it is easier to see if something is added or not to a document. For example, imagine that this document involves a number 1000 if space is not perfectly defined you could add a 1, 10001 and this is a totally different number. Sometimes these documents are even filled with slashes----------------- so ...

Not if the PDF is saved correctly and the font licensing allows for embedding fonts. If you save a PDF as a PDF/X compatible file, by default fonts (or a subset) are embedded within the PDF. There should be no need to have actual font files to output the PDF. However, if someone wants to open that PDF in something like Illustrator, they then would need the ...

Sometimes there are empty text objects which are invisible, locked or hidden, but can still get listed as text objects in the file. Use 'Type → Find Font' to see all the fonts in your document and where they are used. Also to make sure everything is converted to outlines, select all and convert to outlines, which should leave you with an empty list in the '...

I know this post is a little bit late, but I just thought that this might help anyone out that just happens to be looking for a 5 by 3 pixel font. The Terminal font has really good 5 by 3 uppercase letters and numbers, however the lowercase letters are not all 5 by 3 pixels (shown with the red line in the image.)

Expert set fonts are additional fonts sold with professional font families. Often they would have genuine small caps as the lower-case, text figures for the numerals, swash capitals in the capital positions (in italic), and maybe ligatures at some codepoint or other (font design studios used to have standards for those; I've checked an old manual for ...

Some typographic traditions call for the use of these fractioned spaces. For example, in French. To add to Lucian's answer, using these spaces to replace a double-space for example, will sometimes improve your workflow. For example, I typically find/change double spaces to single space from client material, but we typically need to use a double space ...

There is no rule for or against this, you as the designer can set the rules as you wish when building the corporate identity. Generally however, but again this is not a rule, the typeface in a logo is either a custom lettering or just a different font from typefaces introduced for headlines, body text and so on. I've had a similar dilemma and this question ...

Possibly worth looking at https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/kinobrand/nixin?tab=glyphs which appears to have been designed as a 'nixie alike' font. Though it puts a foot on the '1' in ultralight(but not on other font weights) and has a closed '4'. And of course it is not free. Of course it depends where your nixie tubes were made... if they are genuine Nixie or ...

A reverse image search brings up the design archive this came from, as well as some details. It's CS Beta Bold https://www.experimentaljetset.nl/archive/comingsoon Judging from the details provided by the archive, you likely won't be able to obtain a license for this family.

This is a very basic pixel font. You could actually make one yourself or simply hand pixel the sentences you need. Searching dafont.com in the Bitmap category yields many close matches. One of them is Enter Command. The G and the D are a little bit different though. There might be a better match somewhere among the hundreds of bitmap fonts. Most of the ...

This question is a little old, but this might help others... I noticed that inkscape changes the font sizes along with the font type, so if you want to replace the font for things even if the are different sizes, it will change all the text to one size. I found a workaround for this though. Since SVG is just a XML document, you can open it notepad, search ...

It is Goldenbook Black by Mark Simonson, with some modification in the "H" – most probably H is modified with J.

Yes, it's a custom font. Consists of regular and Bold. inspired by the classic monospaced Split-flap display boards at airports. It's not really monospaced since it was also made to look better and be more readable in print, on screens, and wayfinding. I made it back in 2001 as a Senior designer for Kontrapunkt Design in Copenhagen. The font won the Agfa-...

If I like 2 solutions for the same thing, I will eventually just pick one and move forward. I will rarely consult with the client in a situation like this to avoid generating new ideas. Whatever I've picked, I will know it was good anyway. I step back and look at the same thing again in a few days and make changes if possible. This is particularly easy in ...

Select the text tool; Position your text cursor in the place that you want your currency symbol to be; Open Type > Glyphs; In the panel, scroll through your current typeface until you find your desired symbol; Double-click the icon and it will appear in the place of your text cursor. Also works for other symbols you can't type directly. The Glyphs panel is ...

This isn't using the standard TeX Computer Modern font family: it seems to be some kind of Garamond. My guess is that this is either EB Garamond 12, or Adobe Garamond, or Adobe Garamond Premier, all of which have a standard default italic 'k' that looks just like this.
