Hello all! I'm a new member here, but have been impressed with the quality of the advice given here for some time now. I am sorry to barge in with a question, but hope you can forgive me and help me on my quest. Thanks!
Short version: I'm looking for a typeface that says "warm and cozy coffeehouse/pub"
Now, I have recently started working on a personal project (non-commercial) that can best be described a virtual coffeehouse or pub. An online hang-out, if you will. The place is called Oldenburg's, named after Ray Oldenburg, the professor behind the third place theory, stating that every person needs a neutral place other than home (first) and work (second) to socialize with his community.
I have decided to blog every step of the way and have now officially entered the stage of identity design. I'm really, really torn between a pub-like Copperplate or a—more personal—script for the logo typeface. In any case, it should be timeless, as if it could've been around for decades already.
My question to the hive mind: what kind of logo typeface would you associate with a warm, cozy, homely "third place"? My latest post has a moodboard that might inspire ideas. And I know it's subjective as hell ;)
Your opinion is very much appreciated!
