Recently I checked one of my favorite fonts sites again: MyFonts. It is a very usefule site. You can upload pictures of logos or other text pieces to figure out the very font of the text. But you can also search for fonts according to tags.
Now and then we have chatted about logos and what fonts we might like for our logo. Sometimes not easy to decide, but choosing by tag might help. So here are some examples, how a certain brand-name looks like, when using different fonts.
My tags have been
art – artdeco – avant gard – classic – clean – commercial – computer – conservative – cool – elegant – feminine – formal – geometric – informal – innovation – invitation – modern – retro – technical – techno – vintage.
I am presenting about 50 fonts out of 41,000 I have stored on my HD.
I marked the tags for each font and show you an example:
When looking for a font for “Helz-Design” I wanted something feminine and somewhat elegant.
If I had to choose from Figure 1 … my favorite would be “Anna”
Figure 2 … my favorite is “Bickham Script”.
Figure 3: Charme would be the one …
Figure 4: I always liked Copperplate, but I don’t think it would represent my brand.
Figure 5: Kaufman or Künstler Script … I think the later one is more elegant.
Figure 6: Marlowe is a very interesting font, guess I should have a closer look at it later, but Monterey would be Helzie’s font for her logo.
Figure 7: Quilt would be the font of choice.
Figure 8: Van Dijk is my number 1 from this figure.
Figure 9: My final choice has been Zapfino, although I choose it before I made up this little comparison.
Laying out the name in the fonts you like, helps to make up your mind.
What is your number 1 from the 9 images? Leave me a comment!
