    Hi Mcarriganphotos and welcome to GDF.

    So a little about me. I am a Soldier first and a semi-pro photographer on the side. I dabble in graphics to design a few t-shirts and in the Army what we call Commander's Coins (little atta-boy awards)....

    Illustrator is all about closed shapes. You don't necessarily "draw" with it using lines.

  • Font suggestions for a hippie health food store

    I have to knock out a quick ad for a hippie health food store and would like to use something other than their first choice of Zapf Chancery.

    Thanks.

    Anyone who suggests Papyrus wins a bucket of fail.

    Ouch, Zapf? Really? Hmmmm, I searched DaFont.com for hippie fonts but that was full of fail.... maybe some of these would work in place of Zapf. Good luck!

      I forgot to mention that they didn't even spell the name of their business correctly:
      Grainery rather than Granary.

      I think I'm going to go have a short cry.

      Thanks for the suggestions. I'm thinking of going all Celtic on them with Sweeney and Sweeney Linocut

        Are you looking for a font for the body copy of the ad? What does their logo look like?

        For body copy, I usually go for something very desecrate and sans serif.
        It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" – Winnie the Pooh

          It's this. I just am going to extract the logo and make a new headline and put the body in a sans face like Avenir or Gill Sans

          Now, I'm thinking Sweeney is over the top.
