    A consistent branding label at the top with different illustrations beneath the consistent top part somehow equals a copyright violation? What am I missing here? Perhaps I'm missing the point.

    Not much going right here, sorry. Yes you need a hierarchy so the reader knows what to look at and in what order. Consider a background to tie it all together?

    Confused. Is this the existing logo or one you have redone?
    There are several Bread We Break churches, which is yours? Can you provide a link?

    Are you asking us to identify a brush or a font?

    Identifying a brush is like trying to find a needle in a haystack that's on another planet made up of haystacks...

    Anyone can make a brush so you're probably better off finding a different one.

    Also, is that the font used in the movie "Blade"??

      Logo done in Photoshop. Bad form.

        Using brushes for a logo. Bad form.

          Why? using a purchased brush for illustrator is fine by me. Beats having to create one from scratch.

            Usually they don't allow it to be used in logos (license doesn't extend that far). You can't trademark what you don't fully own.

              Thank you for all of your comments

              The typeface is called "Blade" so maybe it is from the movie. I was looking for the brush, not the font.

                I think he was just asking purely out of personal curiosity.

                  Like fonts? Don't own those either.
                  I did say purchase, perhaps should have said licensed. And you can always contact the creator and get a release for commercial use. Or not. Up to them.

                    I'm surprised more people don't do this. Most times the creators I've contacted have been amenable, sometimes for additional cash, sometimes not. Get the extended license in writing and keep it with the product so you don't lose it.

                      Fonts are different. It is my understanding font designs can't be copyrighted, only the data to make them can.

                      Licensing for commercial use is not the same as a logo design because of the extra rights like copyright transfer that really should be a requirement for all.

                        What do you mean by "data to make them"?

                        And wouldn't font design licensing be the same as copyrighted therefor you can't just go and steal whatever you font you find...

                          Only this week I was answering a very similar question to someone else and they came back and said they got in touch with the font vendor and got clearance to use a font the way they wanted. Which was great. Problem solved.

                            The short of it is they don't recognize typefaces as works of art.

                            Licensing and copyright is different. Licensing gives you the right to use it. Copyright goes beyond that - the right to own it, make derivatives, and license it.

                            Someone with a license can't license to someone else. Someone with a copyright can pretty much do whatever they want with it.

                              Sorry you're right, I meant in the sense that if you create a font and someone purchases it they have the license to use that font. But what's stopping someone from saying, no I designed that font too... Maybe it's not a copyright but there has to be some sort of ownership over it...
