Howdy crew, we're currently hunting for some branding typefaces for our screen design and animation outfit called.

While we've got some type directions in place that we're happy with, I thought I'd open it out to you knowledgeable folk to offer suggestions of typefaces that might hit the mark.

As a business we sit somewhere between a creative animation studio (Frankfurter) and a sharp, design-led VFX company (modified Baskerville Old Face). While the worlds are seemingly polar opposites, we feel there might be some middle ground worth exploring.

So ... with that little tidbit of info, got any suggestions of faces?
Fire away with any questions too.

Cheers,

Paul

A typeface that nicely marries opposites, while remaining highly functional:

Oh nice!! This is definitely in the ball park.
very nice work.

We have also looked at Italia, though a comment was made that it seemed a bit "all over the shop".

Oh dude. You're making this really tough (all in a good way).
I can see essences of Italia in Ernestine too.

We did a quick throw together with Ernestine in PS and it really looks like it could work! The uberlicious italics are what we're leaning to.
