    Comment on My First Design Assignment.

    The forum is psychotically insane, Krazy. Lots of things don't work and some just don't work well. The best way to post an image (that I've found) is to upload it to an image hosting site (I use Photobucket),...

    I really don't get minimalism here. I mean you don't have much going on, but instead of a minimal approach you tried to make it interesting --and it isn't working.

    Minimalism is as much about...

    The project is a 50 minimalist-driven icons booklet of anything representative of the 1980's. I'm not able to upload the emblems at this time, but sometimes I struggle with layouts and was just wondering...

    For the price of the Mac Mini and a new monitor, you're just about at the price of an iMac. I'd just get the iMac if it were me.

    I wouldn't say it's necessarily a creativity problem, it just looks like you are thinking of the group of facts as a whole opposed to their own entities, try solving the smaller problems first and then...

  • Can anyone name this font?

    I have a client that loves the font that Callaway Golf uses as seen here. He's real particular of matching this font. I went to www.whatthefont.com and www.identifont.com and a variety of other websites but was unsuccessful.

            You see the little (R) thing - that usually tells me it's not going to be easy to copy elements of their brand and legally trademark it - especially if your client is in the golf industry. I'd have the client pick another font and not try to match it as precisely as possible. It's very likely a custom calligraphy anyway. Their mark is pretty much just relying on the typography save for the little geometric golf tee artwork below it.

              If it's the feel of the font that your client likes (or can be persuaded that that's what he likes ), you can search on myfonts.com for Blackletter fonts, which is the basic style being used here.

              However, yes, you do need to be careful about trademark infringement issues.

                Yeah, I keep giving him "blackletter" and "old english" fonts, but you know clients. When they get their mind stuck on something . . .

                Well thank you everyone . . . I think I'll just tell them that I had it sent to a professional typographer and they found out that it was custom created for that logo and there is no such font

                Thanks again!

                  Remember that some old companies like that, are probably using a custom font. Many years ago, their designer created their logo, and possibly created the type style from scratch. There might not be an exact match anywhere.

                  Tell the client that it is a trademarked, propriatary font, and that you don't intend to violate the copyright laws.
