type for a logo

Post by zerus » Thu Apr 08, 2010 4:57 pm

I have always had problems with types, so maybe you could suggest something to me. I was asked to design a logo for a computer company and I am looking for a simple font which would suggest the company's function. Could you suggest something?

Thank you,

Welcome to the forum.

Trebuchet MS is worth considering.

I saw Trebuchet MS used very effectively on a sign within Google Streetview, though I did not know its name at the time that I first saw it.


Trebuchet MS is bundled with some versions of Windows, so you might already have it installed.

A lot depends on the particular letters that are in the name of the computer company.

If you already have the font installed, a good experiment would be to compare the name typeset in Trebuchet MS with the same name typeset in Arial. A lot of people use Arial in lots of documents, so Trebuchet MS does provide a different look.
