Aesthetically appeased individuals,
Seeking some suggestions and input for a typeface to be used in a logo for a fragrances/perfume brand. Not being a designer, thought it would be beneficial to provide, as best as I can articulate/sketch, a good design brief to the graphic designer who will create the final product. This includes deciding on the typeface before the designer is engaged.
Hoping to hear your suggestions for a good looking set of letters that would best represent my logo. Think: black and capitalized, such as used by many a fashion magazine, fashion label, etc. Don't have a lot of money to pay to a sophisticated type foundry so a compromise is necessary, suppose. Obviously the typeface will be for commercial purposes, appropriate licensing at the least cost is desirable.
Serif / Sans-Serif ... I was originally drawn to a Sans-Serif font such as used in the 'Vanity Fair' logo. Two fonts that I came across were dafont.com/fiesta.font and dafont.com/mouse-deco.font
....Then the 'Barneys New York' logo, feat. serif lettering caught my attention and now I'm torn between either a bold/sans-serif font or an elegant/subtle serif font. Something in between perhaps? What do you think?
