So it's that time of year when we have to knock out Christmas cards for clients, and of course the bosses want something designed in-house.
I really, really don't want to use anything that looks even remotely like a typical font for this task. No pseudo-handwritten or calligraphic shit.
What are you boys and girls using? Any nice sans that are fit for purpose?
Does your company have a choice of brand font? If so, why use anything else?
I've got to do one too over the next few days and I'm not going with anything off-brand except colour and christmas schmaltz.
- "A good designer works with what they've got", man! I actually like that and think it's already halfway towards Christmas anyway!Nairn
- I think it's a shit sandwich. :(Continuity
- It's Letter Gothic, right? One of my clients uses it and I hate it in their context - but whatmygonnado? Here, I think they've made good use of it.Nairn
- is the I a different weight, or stroked? I assumed at first that was a down-sizing glitch, but it's in teh full-size too?Nairn
- someone has made a complete set of this - with much bolder weights. can't remember who tho. ff, or hf&j. or someone. helpful, i know.hans_glib
- fontfont. Unfortunately, there don't appear to be any snowflakes in unicode range 02743–02746 on the symbol set.
Get out some pens and start writing. Have fun.
