I’ve posted about the packaging of Lily-Flame Scented Tins before here. I attempted to find out which font they use. A friend asked for a candle for Christmas so I got her some. I took photos of the lovely packaging.
I love the Create & Cultivate logo. Its very on trend and attractive. Here it is:
Its always harder to find a font when each letter is linked together like this. It could be worse though. When the word is on a patterned background then its really difficult. Its even more annoying when the word is written in white AND on a patterned background.
I used Photoshop to break the word up and put the sample into myfonts.com
Here are the results
I thought number 8 was a really close match. I tried it out at cufonfonts.com
How could I be sure that it is Mission Script though? I decided to upload the sample to the What The Font Forum. They got back to me very quickly.
I was right! It is Mission Script. Thanks Tecnotronic 🙂
Mission Script was created by James T. Edmondson and his friends. How awesome is that? I’d love to make a typeface with my friends. Can’t see that happening though 😦
Description of the typeface.
After watching Katie Holmes play Say Anything With Jimmy Fallon on YouTube, I wanted to know where Katie got her beautiful dress from. I did a quick search and clicked on one of the results. On the side of the page was the following ad.
I thought oooo I really like those fonts and the design in general. At a later point, I reloaded the page and the ad was there again but in a different colour:
I clicked on the ad and immediately fell in love with what I saw, see below. This website design is for a company called Create & Cultivate. I love everything about it from the fonts, to the layout, to the menu and the colour scheme. Beautiful! I am inspired to find out which fonts these are and I will post the results in the future.
Here I’m interested in the way the image inside the text is a different colour.
I like the idea of using a silhouette with text on top like I saw here.
Here I am trying more ideas for the logo. Its going to take quite a few attempts before I get it right. You can always tell when its right because it feels right. That’s how design works. I thought I’d try ideas using this picture from Shutterstock.
I found another nice text effect tutorial:
I would definitely recommend this tutorial. It’s not that difficult and there are no mistakes.You should give it a try.
Here is where I got the wood pattern from:
