I am looking for a font. For what? You may ask. A stylish social network app.
I have been looking at various social networks (Facebook, Twitter, et cetera) and they all seem to have very strong characteristics when it comes to their logo, as typography should be.
I want a font that is sans-serif, strong, with interesting angles. Somewhat like Facebook’s logo, which is closely related to Klavika Bold, but I hate pretty much all of the lowercase letters except for “n,” which has an interesting up-turn.
Obviously, the font that I use will just be a jumping-off point for me to leap into the abyss of typography. I already know how I will style the first letter, but I want a good font to start with and I am certain that there are some typography geeks on here.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me!February 5, 2013 at 12:06 pm #123461February 5, 2013 at 2:43 pm #123477February 5, 2013 at 4:37 pm #123496February 5, 2013 at 5:39 pm #123506
@mintertweed Give me a few minutes as I’m helping someone else with font rendering issues outside of the forum and I’ll list quite a few options for you, deal?February 5, 2013 at 6:03 pm #123510
Miller Display (love the italic capital Y glyph)
I’m using the following on my upcoming site until the Harriet series webfonts come out (via Webtype).

Here are a couple of my personal favorites at the moment.
When I think of the word “Leaflet”, I think of vines. Therefore I believe the best approach would be to find a typeface that is a little more decorative. Such as this:
Carmen Fiesta (type in LEAFLET in all caps).
Even if you don’t want to use that for your logo, I would still think about a mark with the ‘L’. I have a pretty good idea of what I would do with it.
I also like the cupped serifs on Yana
