Looking for Similar Typefaces


Hey all!

I'm creating a logotype for a band and in the stage of looking for type references. The band is a sort of sexy, female fronted, classic rock with an edge sort of sound and look. Equal parts Pat Benatar, Metallica, and early The Who.

I'm hoping you guys can help me find more sources of inspiration for the direction I'm trying to go.


Anthropomorphism & Zoomorphism in Typography

ok, so...I am writing an article on
Anthropomorphism & Zoomorphism of Typography
I have a loose outline with some themes & concepts I'd like to touch on.
I want to get some feedback, good & bad.
Here is what I have.

New from insigne: Caridade


Caridade is a bold and powerful script face. It draws some inspiration from heavy brush drawn vintage hand lettering but its heavy weight is much thicker with plenty of impact and more contemporary letterforms. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Heavy weight to the graceful Thin.

Caridade can get the job done for many unique design tasks.
