I’m designing a website, letterhead, ect with THIS logo. I can’t seem to find anything that complements the lines of the logo. It is a construction/manufacturing business and It needs strong lines. But, Impact doesn’t seem to work with the complexity of the art. Any thoughts?December 11, 2013 at 2:40 pm #158205
Well, what kind of typeface are you looking for? What’s your budget? And is it just the font for the logo, or is it supposed to be used for something else (like body text or headers)?December 12, 2013 at 9:29 am #158239Justin11111Participant
I don’t really have a budget and I don’t think it be easy to loosen up wallets when I say I want to buy a font. I was mostly considering something out of the freely available font libraries.
After a little more investigation I matched Cambria and Sans. I think it looks alright. Do you have an recommended resources if I wanted to know more about Typography and matching?
@janet4now – Thanks for that link. That will be handy for all the other fonts I’ll need to match!December 12, 2013 at 10:19 am #158243
I’d look at some various articles on Smashing Magazine. They have some really good on typography.December 13, 2013 at 11:08 pm #158310
No budget for the most important part of a website? Ouch. I find it odd that people want to spend so little for what they call “just a font” when text is the main factor.
@Janet, DaFont? I really hope you are not recommending this service to clients or anyone else.
@Melindrea The best article I’ve read about typography on their site is by my friend, Joseph Alessio. I find websites dedicated to type far more educational, however.December 14, 2013 at 11:31 am #158340__Participant

Cambria is not free.
By “Sans” do you mean “Open Sans”? That one’s free (though it looks nothing like Cambria).December 14, 2013 at 12:55 pm #158343
Care to share a couple of links? I always enjoy to learn more, and prefer to use more endorsed places, ie ones that trusted acquaintances read.December 15, 2013 at 9:27 pm #158344
