I've never done anything like this before, but I want to learn as much as I can from this little project. I'm trying to come up with a nice handwritten-script logo for myself. I may end up using it, but I'm more interested in learning and practice at this point.

I'm anxious to hear your thoughts! I want to improve construction, flow, and consistency if possible (and I'm sure it is).


Hi everyone!

I'm creating the branding for the 2011 KC Design Week festival. A very exciting project and I'm narrowing down to final concepts and could use some input.

In this case I'm mainly looking for which letters don't work. For example the first "S" in Kansas is just awful. Any others make you mad?

Hi everyone

I'm designing a logo for a company called Future Textiles Ltd. To give you a little overview of who they are but without boring you too much, heres a brief description:

Newly founded knitted products company Future Textiles Ltd is planning a future in technical textiles and is already developing and manufacturing products for healthcare and personal protective equipment (PPE) applications.

Hi everyone,

I need some feedback on a logotype for an F&B brand that I've been working on.
It's based on Susa Bold (http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/hubertjocham/susa/).

The client likes the original version, although he is concerned that people would read the logotype as Loi, instead of Zoi, due to the cursive stroke of the uppercase "Z".

Therefore, I've made some modifications to the uppercase "Z" to make it look less like the cursive uppercase "L" (please see image below).

However, I really like the curvy upper case "Z" because it has so much flair which fits the brand perfectly, and gives the logo a unique personality. I'm afraid that the more I reduce the cursiveness of the uppercase "Z", the less flair is retained.


Hello fellow Typophiles

Below is an identity I created for a close friend and photographer. Inspired by the script identities of Leitz / Leica and other bygone camera manufacturers, I took the approach of combining a friendly script with mechanical germanic flair. As a photographer both relies on his personality and his technical skill to create images this dichotomy made sense to me.

I was wondering what sort of feedback you guys had? I have already combed it over a few times fixing some quirks that I had - especially with the d and r. This is what i ended on - but i feel like you guys could definitely help me find the best solution.

I need the name of this font. I don't know if it is custom designed, I suspect it is not.

Announcing a new, very round typeface: Circula™. It is a simplified geometric display typeface based on circles. It contains capitals and small capitals only (no lower case), basic symbols, superior and inferior numbers and common fractions. It supports Eastern European, Baltic and Turkish character sets. The medium cut is free. Get it at Myfonts.

Hi there folks,

I'm trying to find a font for my package redesign project and I'm stuck on defining the font. It's no where to be found in the Adobe Opentype Package.

Selection Brand Logotype

If you could help me that would be more than great.


The “On Language” column of the New York Times has used custom-illustrated logotypes each week for years, which the Society of Publication Designers blog helpfully collected in two posts (first, second). Many Usual Suspects are represented among the letterers.

Hi, has anybody ever seen a similar typeface - or in fact the original type - that was used to write KRUG? I believe must be a French or possibly a German typeface from the mid-19th century.


I'm working on a legacy mark to commemorate the 25th anniversary for a St. Louis arts organization. Out of several options, here's the direction my client picked. It's loosely based on Bodoni and Benton Modern.

If anyone could offer some input on how to improve the curves, I'd really appreciate it. Some areas don't feel quite right yet, particularly in the way the swashes above and below cradle the shapes of the numbers.

Feedback much appreciated.

This may be a bit of an imposition, but I was wondering if someone would be willing to give some logo-making advice: I'd like to take a shot at making a logo for a research group at a Scottish university, consisting essentially only of a few letters (probably "E-CoS" or "E-CS"). Are there any typefaces typical of Scotland or of Britain of the Edwardian era that would go nicely as a logotype?


I really like the minimal look of this logo and the associated type. Can anyone tell me what it is?

I've looked around on MyFonts and it looks like it might be a modified Nobel extra light, but I'm still not sure. Any thoughts?

Hello! My name is Rickard and this is my first post here at typohile. I'm excited to join this forum, not only to observe but also to learn more about the world of typography!

I am from Sweden so please bare in mind my fairly incomplete language skills.

I this a good start on the forum is to show a thing that I have done and with some luck get one good thought or two from you guys. I am talking about my very own logotype for my name, also soon to be my website and all-around self-brand.

Take a look and tell me what you think. I was aiming for a sleek and rather elegant feel. Also I tried to have complexity in mind and avoid to advanced techniques. As you see it's rather simple. Too simple maybe? Does it need a background?

Thanks in Advance!

I'm currently building my portfolio up to apply at some art and design schools so I decided to create an identity for a fictional museum of art based in Mexico. I am now debating on the logo and have created several versions:
1. http://droplr.com/43FfS+
2. http://droplr.com/4yB6u+

And I have now pretty much started over and come up with this (also attached):

BLoveLee logotype

I'm working on a logotype for a friend's etsy store. Her plan is to sell quaint/crafty items. She'll turn the logo into a rubber stamp, so she can stamp packing slips and such. This is the design I have so far, and this is her etsy page so far.

I'd like some feedback on the fitting-ness of this lettering, drawn on Illustrator from scratch. I was going for an etsy-ified antiquated feel, but patently 2000's since "BLoveLee" is a name that could not have existed pre-URLs.
