I'm using font in pic related for my artist's logo (it looks more decent than you're probably imagining, at least I hope).
I'd like to get permission to use it but I can't find the original source or the author or anything like that. Only thing i know it's "Free for personal use" according to dafont. So that's a no until i ask the author i guess?
Also, although I used the font for (heavy) inspiration, I re-made the result in Illustrator, varying it a bit to suit muh needs. But it still looks rather similar.
Thanks...

Nobody cares. Just use it

As long as you're not sending the font file, you'll probably be fine. And if you just recreated it in Illustrator, then you're golden. The license is literally only for the use of the font file itself.

That is only true in certain countries.

Op why don't you contact dafont

Hey /gd/ do you know any good catalog sites for logos? In particular 80s logos? I was looking for some 80s logos but the neo-80s fad has pretty much made it impossible to find actual logos from the 80s.

Hello lovers of all things beautiful,
I am currently working on a Uni project and I am required to build a full app. I need some inspiration as I am more code and less colors.
Can anyone suggest me some apps (as examples), tools, styles I might use.

Design novice here

Do you think it is better to have a small selection of classic fonts, or a large selection with something for every eventuality? How many typefaces do you have in your own collection and do you edit it regularly?

I feel like I'm accumulating a shitload of useless and ugly fonts that I'm never going to use or that I have too many that are similar and I'm not skilled enough yet to know the subtle differences. I need license free or otherwise cheap fonts and that is the problem. I can't afford to pay hundreds and hundreds for...

Small selection of classic fonts, having too many just fucks up the programs.
If you by chance would need something more exotic, then get something for that specific thing and delete it afterwards (you can keep the font files, to easily reinstall if you need to change it later)
If you do logos and want a unique font, I'd suggest drawing it by hand

About the licenses, you don't technically need the license as long as your client pays for the actual use. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Cheers
>>
>>261677

thanks

I'm thinking to begin with I'll just stick to Open Type and maybe buy 6-10 regular/light weights of other nice affordable type. I can try it on with clients as and when I guess

Also, and this may be a stupid question, but are all the typefaces bundled with Mac free for commercial use? This copyright shit is quite confusing

What is the easiest way for me to recreate this logo in a much bigger size? Ive been asked to get it ready to print on a 2ft x 4ft banner.
I'm not asking for someone to do it for me though, it looks like I might need to do this for quite a lot of assets in the future so it would be good to know how to do it.

I'm a photographer with very little graphics experience but I have photoshop if that helps.

Do you think it is worth for a person who is not studying gd (but had a couple of gd and web design courses) to read a lot of gd literature? Will this be useful to me in the end? I grabbed some pdf's from Vignelli and about grids and typography and it seems ok, but kind of basic.

Is it possible to get good (in theory at least) by just going through a lot of (college) literature?

And if there is some good rec apart from a literature in sticky, I'll appreciate it. At the moment, I want to understand better typography. What to use and where/when. Recently...

Theoretic background is always useful, so that's a big yes on that.
However I wouldn't trust Vignelli's opinions that much – especially regarding typography – since his are way too dogmatic and a bit stubborn. Dunno about grids though.

Helvetica is far from perfect, don't expect to find some hidden secret. It was mostly a child of its time and struck a chord then. There are far better alternatives in the Grotesk genre today.

Are you using grids to help with the layout?
>>
>>261025
I think your problem is that you make everything in similar size so there isn't much happening (like the icon, product name and info is all equal in size and fontsize). Let one thing take central approach by making it bigger and scale down the rest. It could also help to combine different fonts (max 3). Because right now it's a slab on slab. Try a sans serif with a slab serif.

I am a student of computer science and I basically hate this school, I was forced into it by my parents and I don't see myself working anywhere near computer science in the future. As a kid I've always been creative, I had great drawing skills which I left behind, and I am slowly starting to understand that I am made to draw, create and design. I read the sticky but I can't find any good books that help me get started with design, practical and theoretical both. I am willing to dedicate my time to this as it's my passion.

I don't like the font in the credits. It doesn't match the title and byline, or the tone of the film, really.

Whenever Mike(?) says "oh hello didn't see ya" I think he should be in a different position on camera, so it doesn't look like a crappy YouTuber cut where they slice out all their ums and uhs. Normally it's good about that, but when he's out in the snow it's noticeable.
