We recently agreed with DFi that they need a font for their lines of product. A first attempt of this project was made 10 years ago;
I've made drafts of some logos, but have to step back the project. One logo was made from these drafts i made, but not finalised by me.
here it is:
This logo had a great success through DFi customers, and they were know for that technology and that logo (... :-/ )
So the font MUST look like that logo and match the style.
After somes trial, we also agreed that one black font was too heavy to be used alone and must be tempered with a lighter font.
On basis of trials made with Myriad italic, they choose the Black/Standard mix. I tempered thas choice by making a semi-black (or extra-bold, i don't know how to call this) and a slighty bolder standard.
here is the draft of the new SafeMail Logo:
I've just finished the last letter of the extra-bold font, as it is my first work of this amplitude, i need all the help i can find!
have all the letter the same boldness, have all the letter the same angle, is the style consistent enough, or whatever looks wrong or unbalanced.
Don't forget that the style of the font is predetermined by the old logo SafeMail.
I join a PDF in file attachment of the extra-bold (or semi-black...) font. The standard font will come soon to join it.
Any help, any comments are warmly welcomed.
EDIT02: i've just uploaded 2 new pdf where i've made some change to the G, J, L and Q in extrabold and reported these changes in the standard.
EDIT03: i've tempered a bit the waveness
EDIT04: i've removed the angles
EDIT06: for the black font, i've have standardized the ascendant of letter, remake the K, modify the Q
