papyrus

Here is a script I cannot identify. It has a texture like Papyrus that may have been added later.

After the revolution the government has taken down the official site of the President and put up a "coming soon" page.

Unfortunately, they had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to legitimately use "Papyrus" and they blew it. Instead it's "Algerian." Could have at the very least been Adrian Frutiger's "Egyptienne" too as a non-comedy option.

Because it's hilarious to me, I thought I'd share a link to a huge multi-page rant about the logo emblazoned across the front of Egnater guitar amplifiers. The website is a site about guitar gear, like amps and effects and stuff.

Terrible mistake by Egnater.

Anyway, here is the logo that they are complaining about, the great big scripty "Egnater":

$.50 to the person who points out the bigger issue with the design :p

Please help me identify this font- see attachment

Hi all,

I am looking for a sans-serif typeface to match Papyrus (not my choice - I loathe that font). It will be used on a website, for menu headings and also body text. Even a suggestion of what characteristics would match would be helpful- humanist, geometric, grotesque etc. The website is for a horror/thriller film, if that is any help on choosing a font.

Looking forward to any recommendations to solve this conundrum!

Regards,

David

I have a client who would like to use Papyrus in their branding, alongside the logo I designed for them (logo attached). They mentioned that something similar would be ok, so I'm scratching to find something that would suit them (think personal trainer who uses yoga in her practice and likes tribal design) and not make me feel professional pain. I would love to hear some suggestions.

I'd also love to hear how others tactfully deal with clients that want to use fonts (or other design elements) that you just can't bring yourself to use? How do you tell them that their choices are... less than ideal?

Thanks!
