    Hahahaha - OK I feel better now, thanks.

    Yeah - I think I will take the risk on Creative Cloud, based on the overall advice. I'm going to download the free trial and make sure the files work,...

    Just tell them that you'll get to [project they want for free/next to free] when you can afford the time to do it.

    It's not saying no, it just saying my time is valuable and finite, so...

    Yeah, it looks more design-y fashion-y, but with kind of a late 70s disco chic thing going on.


    I think weight loss branding generally wants something more friendly, honest and not...

    I am thinking about that, I think the best option is to blank out the last name and house number?

    Your first post said that you wanted a simple, flat design, yet you've created something with a 3D look that's quite complicated.

    Cosmo gave you some great advice that I completely agree...

  • what font is this?

    Hi All,

    I am having some problems matching this font. I have tried bothwww.whatthefont.com and www.identifont.com with no luck really. They suggested Kaufmann, and Swing, but it is onlt based on the T and O because it couldn't seperate the rest of the letters. They are pretty close, but the h's and l's are off- missing the loop on the ascenders. Any suggestions?

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

        Before i read your post I was going to suggest Kaufmann - the letters are so close that i think it is probably a knockoff.

        This site has aka font names
        http://www.fontinfo.net/Font_Analog.html

        it suggests - Swing Bold; Tropez - as alternatives.
        (it's not swing. - maybe try and find tropez)
        Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

            Can you use any other font?
            I too thought Kaufman at first. Looks like maybe a tweak on that really.

            Maybe try www.fontdiner.com and look at some old Script ones, I don't think any are that close but Refrshment Stand is a close look.
            House Industries have a few that might be clsoe as well.

              Identify the Font

              There is a website I use to identify fonts and I have never had a problem -it always works for me. It is: http://www.identifont.com/. They ask questions about the letters you are viewing in your sample.
