Spotted any good organic food fonts?
0

I'm looking for a font for a project to do with organic food, farming and conservation of the land etc. In my mind I want something earthy and friendly, a bit quirky but still legible. Anyone got any suggestions? Sans serif, serif or display all possibilities. Thanks!

Hi I am working on an Organic Wine label. This has been an informative discussion.

I am looking for a font that is clean, understated and contemporary. I want a font that looks soooo good with out screaming look at me. A font that a designer might say "I want to know what that font is. A font the average consumer won't see anything unique with but they will sense quality. A font for an organic wine consumer who shaves her legs (target market).

Am I asking to much? I thought I'd toss it out there.

A little late into the discussion, but i'm searching for a font family for a similar purpose. Something to carry through the catalogs, packaging, signage, etc. These are al great choices in general, but any suggestions for a more modern feel and not so "granola?" (I love Sauna and am considering Rotis Semi-Sans so anything along those lines...)

Papyrus

Why are you all looking at me like that?

I'd move your question to a new topic, Pattie, as this request is actually pretty different. Go ahead and start a new thread and I'll be happy to reply there.

How about Kantor? Or for a slightly less quirky approach, Relato? And for display, Monument.

Alejandro Paul's scripts are wonderful. You might also check out www.underware.nl and their Sauna and Bello. Also 'earthy, friendly and quirky' describes Goudy Sans, so you might consider that also.

Mac Rhino's Oxtail is fairly extensible and has a very soft, postmodern feel. (The price is also right.)

My Refugio Rustic matches the requirements pretty well...

Some of Nick Shinn's fonts are quite naturally delectable.

I'd go for Dave Farey's ITC Highlander (after Oz Cooper), but Bram de Does is still the best when it comes to organic food. =8-)

Thanks Hrant, Fontesque has proved quite popular in food packaging and I've seen it used for organic food.

For a more granola quality consider combining Dear Sarah with Olduvai both homegrown here at Typophile and both available at Veer.

I would go out of my way to figure out how to use this ... (more MVB)

Could work.
