Creating a brand identity is an art, and the purest form of that art has to be logo design. What colours give the impression you want? How should the name be presented? What font – or fonts – express the style this brand needs?

We see the greatest examples every day, and we all remember the disastrous mismatches between font and brand.

From the designers at HypeForType to all those logo designers out there, though, we give you a spectacular new tool; the 50 fonts you absolutely must have in your toolbox. Stay tuned for the rest of the countdown!

A brand’s logo says so much about it. It can target or exclude demographics, appeal to the past or call on the promise of the future. It is the first impression your company, service, website or product makes on the world – and we all know how important first impressions can be.

At the same time and above all else your logo has to be unique and distinctive. It has to stand out from the crowd and instantly be recognisable.

With more designs being developed and designed every day, the challenge of being and looking unique will only grow. A varied toolbox with a broad diversity of options is a logo designer’s greatest asset in this challenge – and that’s what these fonts are for!
