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.
So followers, as you know, back in the summer of 2013 I tried to find out which font the NYX cosmetics brand uses in their logo. Out of the blue I was contacted by a graphic designer called Max Franosch. He posted the following comment:
‘I am 99.9% sure their logo is based on my font Linotype Franosch Medium (2002). The stroke width is identical when you place my font over their logo. All they have done is slightly stretch the characters horizontally to create their logo. The C has been flipped to create their N. The Y, they just gotten rid of the circle and extended the stroke downwards.’ Here is the diagram Max sent me which illustrates his comment:
So what do you think followers? Leave your comments below. A big thank you to Max for his contribution!!
Here is what Linotype Franosch Medium (2002) looks like for those of you that would like to know.
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.
I liked the look of this fun text effect. I thought I’d give the tutorial a try.
This is the effect I should be able to make.
I’m not sure I’d necessarily recommend this tutorial since I think it contains a number of mistakes. The colour for the color overlay on the base layer is actually ca1818. Also the author didn’t mention that the fill on the layers needs to be set at 0% on both the Hard and Sugar layers. If you download the author’s PSD files you can work out how to do it.
Here is the version I made.
I think it turned out really well! It took a really long time though because of the mistakes in the tutorial. Here is how my layers palette looks in case you want to try it yourself.
