New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
So first off… hello to everyone. I am new to the typophile site. I have looked through it many times before and am in awe of the depth of knowledge that this site brings to surface. I am a design student here in Florida bumbling around the world of type and look forward to learning and sharing here. I have a ton to learn but I am a hard worker and ready for some knowledge in hopes that one day when the design cosmos aligns and can share my experience strength and hope with another with the same desire for knowledge.
So I am currently learning the nuances of type (I hope :>) and have a challenge. The current project is branding a mobile food service.
I have chosen a Buddhist inspired cuisine and come up with a name: "Immortal Monk". Several logos followed. In the interest of time and progression to type, I have chosen an image to accompany the name (attached).
Here's what I know: typefaces found for free are often poorly designed. The chosen typeface should complement, but not compete, with the logo symbol. Decorative typefaces are not for body copy, but can be effective in certain situations.
Goal: to find a typeface that works with the logo and has a friendly, spiritual, Bhuddist feel. I have experimented with many but feel I have been poking around in the dark.
Thanks for whatever knowledge you can drop.
