Alternatives to Copperplate for Logo Design
0

I am looking at creating concept logos for a country hotel. It is a historical building, with oak paneling etc; and the owners want to project the place as somewhere for adults to enjoy some peace and quiet in countryside surroundings - with spa facilities and great cuisine!

I am thinking of an all caps or small caps logotype coupled with a stylised illustration of the wrought iron gates that protect the entrance. From memory I am thinking of copperplate, trajan pro, requiem, castellar...

Can anyone suggest other similar alternatives - better still, fonts with alternative swash options (although I want to avoid too script-like an appearance).

I'm going to go for double jeopardy now, and ask for people's thoughts on a body typeface that projects a warm modern feeling with a hint at the historical significance of the building... I'm a fan of Warnock, but Versa from ourtype has caught my eye. Comments?

Many thanks for any feedback!

You say that the building is “historical,” what period?

All over the place (or time) actually... original part medieaval with improvements made throughout the timeline, then major victorian overhawl, then edwardian ammendments!

For the logo you might like Estilo.
