Fontastic

One of the perpetual projects in my little publishing company's life is the development of our company logo. This is my favorite project, as it involves the use of fonts. And I am rather a font fanatic. I have spent the last few hours trolling dafont.com, which is a wonderful website of free and mostly-free fonts for personal and often commercial usage. Rather than download every font I like, I sketched out my own versions of each of them as they inspired me. I thought I'd share them with you here, and if any of my noble readers have preferences, feel free to shoot me a comment. I am hoping I have determined the font-of-choice by the time the new website is ready to go up. After all, what's a corporate website without a corporate logo? Here are some photos of my most recent selections.

  1. You should have different logos for the spine of your books for each genre!

  2. I like that one too, Ems, but it looks better in my sketch than the actual font selection...

  3. you can always make your own! scan in your handwriting, some sort of program to sharpen it up and size it however you want. you could even have a letterpress plate made for stationery!

  4. Personally, I like the little picture of the scurrying mouse on the second page. As for font, I like the one that looks Greek on the third page.
