identity

Hi guys,

I am looking for a script/handwriting to be used as a tagline. It must feel friendly, warm and simple. And maybe more important it has to be very legible and work in small sizes.

I've found Tomboy from Letterperfect http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/letterperfect/tomboy/ that I find pretty suitable. However, I think it's a bit too masculine and harsh. I guess it's because it's a signage/marker typeface rather than a script.

Any ideas on similar but with a friendlier appearance?

Thanks!

Hi there, I'm looking for suggestions of interesting fonts which were designed in 1912 for the development of an identity for an old house in Sri Lanka (built in 1912) which I'm currently restoring. Any ideas appreciated, thanks.

Hi All,
Just wanted to get some feedback on the problem areas (kerning-wise) on this word mark that I'm in process on for a client. (Created by heavily modifying Carisma Light (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/castletype/carisma/ in case anyone was curious) Any thoughts are appreciated guys, thank you,

Hi All.

I'm new to Typophile and trying to get a feel for how all this works. Sorry, in advance, if I'm out of line.

Got two typefaces in the attached images. Would love to know what they are.

DUNDERDON looks pretty close to Helvetica, but the R is different.

ADAM KIMMEL, I'm totally unsure.

Thanks for the help. Super grateful.

Hello! So here's my story: I'm a pastor. I love design and type, but I am not a designer by profession or training. I recently took a new position, and (like many or most churches) the design is abysmal or non-existant. Think word art, and newsletter with said word art created in (no, I'm not kidding) Microsoft Word. Also, no logo, no unified font choice (different fonts in bulletin, newsletter, website, letterhead, etc.) On the one hand, this is exciting for me, because there is real progress to be made. On the other hand, it's horrifying, because there is so much to do, and I don't know where to start. At some point, I would like to hire someone to consult and help us create a full identity that we can use across all these platforms.

Hi all !
I would be very pleased to get some advice and suggestions about the font pairing and global appearance of this combination. At the moment, it is just a start on a business card. The company is specialized in high-end microelectronics and wants to contrast radically from the other companies in their sector... I made some boards with different variations and identity elements, but I need to know what you are thinkning about those two simple lines : logo and font pairing... Thank you by advance to all of you !

Hello everyone!
We are a group of students doing a visual identity project about Como, Italy. We need font suggestions for the logo of the city we created: it should be sans serif and possibly coherent with the different identities of Como (romanesque decoration, rationalist movement of Terragni, liberty-inspired elegance). Attached some images of reference.
We were thinking of Neutraface because of its geometry matching that of our logo, but it turned out to be a predictable choice and the result was too "fascist".

Thank you very much for your help.

I am in the process of developing a logo and website for my company. The company does branding, web development, and marketing for small businesses. I hand drew this logo and reworked it in illustrator. I wanted it to have fresh energy and inspire people to get creative and excited about developing their identity. How am doing so far?

Hi, I'm working on the identity system of my academy and I'm facing the fact that we cannot design a typeface on our own by the deadline (which is near as hell, by the way).

What are the legal aspects of using a shareware font?

Up to now I've choosen Dante and I'm trying to find a respectable sans-serif companion for it.

But I don't know what should we do, if the identity system is accepted, to legally use Dante and the sans-serif companion (think of renowned names like Univers, Frutiger etc.).

We'll have to buy the license and goodbye? Or there's something more complex behind?

thanks in advance for all the replies!

I am in the process of designing a logo and identity around a photography business. The client wants to look young and modern, while alluding to early 20th century america. She does wedding photography and portraiture as well as boudoir/ pin-up style photography. She wants to appeal to a younger clientele; mid 20's to 30's primarily without excluding a wider range of potential customers. I would appreciate any feedback and/or direction. Thanks for your time.

Hi. My name is Drew and I am doing a branding and development project for a local Mortgage company. The company name is First Home Equity Loans. He asked for a new logo to be "upstanding, professional, and to look bigger than the company really is". He is a former Marine and carries himself and his business in a very upstanding and patriotic demeanor. I developed two different ideas for the logo and he chose from the two. I would like some feedback on both of them as the one he chose will need to be more fully developed and the one he did not choose I would like to possibly use in the future. The customer was happy with the file called "fhe logo approved.pdf" and I would like to finalize that one.

I've seen this specific type of shading treatment on a vast number of logos that I've run across and I love it.

For clarification purposes, does this specific type of shading have a formal name or technique associated with it?

I've always figured that this kind of effect could be done roughly with an algorithm or black and white conversion plugin and then fine tuned, rather than entirely hand drawn--but I've never run across anything that splits shades of gray into black bars of varying thickness like this.

Might any of you kind folks here on Typophile have any recommendations on how to consistently produce this effect?

Thanks!

dear friends typophiles!

i looking for corporative typefaces of city and territory identities.

if you know any special designed typeface for use in whole city, please let me know. generally i interested in maximal universal typefaces for all aspects of city life, but glad to know about special (like navigation) types too.

what i found for now:

Hello there , I'm a design student currently working on a project in which I am aiming to create a logo type for placebo medication.
I have hit a wall and would like feedback to help me develop my designs.
I am currently working on a stencil logo type
based on the rounded type that is stamped onto pills & capsules (see ref1)
I started with quite a light typeface made of two sections ( to represent the pyschological & physiological aspects of medicine that work together )

My tutor suggested to thicken it up , using the omnipresent helvetica as a reference.
i've tried this but now it just looks (for want of a better phrase) ' sausage-y '
illegible would probably be a more relevant phrase to use, but i'm sure you will understand.

Hi,

My husband asked me to create identity of his new business called Ali haiki, for accounting and finance services (financial controlling, accounting, audit, business plans and strategies). IT has to be, clean, simple,young, shows professionalism and seriousness, but still firendly not aggressive.

Here's what I've reached.

My experience in design is still little, but this is to enrich my experience and enhance my portfolio, so every comment is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi everybody.

I'm looking for suggestions of modern sans serif fonts, I like Precious Sans, and to certain level Ubuntu but want more options that you consider relevant.

Thanks in advance

Hi everyone,

This is my first attempt at an identity project, and not having proper graphic design (much less typographic) training under my belt, I would really appreciate some feedback from more discerning eyes!

The "client" is a technology startup, looking to make sense of financial networks. The goal of the identity therefore is to convey the idea of innovation, and data connections on a global scale.

I'm unsure about the proportions here, but my main conundrum is that I would like for the text and the graphic to have a visual relationship, e.g. echo each other in some small detail of form (I'm thinking United Airline's original logo by Pentagram here...) Any suggestions? I'm also afraid that it looks really boring.

Meat&Bread typeface

Does anybody know what the typeface is this http://bumbumbum.me/wp-content/uploads/GW_MeatandBread-05-700x525.jpg. Tried whatsthefont. No luck. Thanks in advance

Hi folks,

I'm new on here so excuse any blunders or assumptions i might make in my plea for help. I've just finished designing a logo for a client and was just about to get started on some stationary as you do and realised I've been using the same set of fonts for way too long.

I'm asking for a bit of help with type selection to work as part of an identity, so initially stationary and a small brochure. The job is for a client who is about to open a Pilates studio on the UK's South coast. She's got uninterrupted views from the studio out to sea hence the concept for the logo.

I was looking for sans serif that wasn't too slight/condensed to compliment the curves of Hermes used in the logo. But I'm totally open to all suggestions, that's why I'm here.

I'm on a hot search for headline type. I don't usually do this so fast, but we're under the gun to fix a broken situation. so here's the deal: I have until this afternoon to preset a headline (and companion text) face to meet these qualities.

- personal
- approachable
- authoritative
- passionate
- happy

it's going in print (catalogs, mailers, signage, etc) and online. right now, print is the first order of business. it's going to sit with food. and it will be mostly for mood, not necessarily promotion (I think that's where a good companion face will come in handy).

I'm working from the type specimens I have on hand, but I know there's a lot more out there. what do you guys think?

Brouniak

Hello !

I think fonts softwares offer a great opportunity to produce "more" than types for the client. The project below, Brouniak, is the third for which i used FontLab to create symbols the client can use in classical office softwares to get : vectorial logotype, vectorial backgrounds, vectorial pictograms, etc.

For Brouniak, i've created a special font, with the logotype instead of letters and dots instead of numbers : the client can use a vectorial logotype on documents he creates under OpenOffice, and the clock of his computer generate dotted random backgrounds (i've used the "insert date/hours" function to do that).

You can read (in french) the full project here : http://www.punkat.com

1. Logotype and font:

I've been working this out for a bit now.

I am looking for some criticism/help. I'm not afraid.

This is a personal logo design, it is my initials which are c j d. i prefer the lower case. Let me know how you feel.
