When looking at a logo, people’s eyes are usually drawn straight to the text, making your choice of font extremely important. Your potential customer will unknowingly make assumptions about your business as a result of the font on your logo. Is this a fun, serious, quirky, professional or traditional business? Your font will help your customer answer that question! So, take a look at the fonts below to help you decide how to brand your business.
Montserrat is a simple and classy font with a friendly appearance. The inspiration for this font came from a neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, drawing on urban typography. It’s clear and easy to read so would be perfect for a business offering a professional service that prides itself on being trustworthy and reliable. The combination of the gently curved letters and the clear structure creates a functional yet approachable look.
For those of you wanting to create a fun and informal logo, opt for Amatic SC.

This is great for logos as it’s designed for titling, so will grab your customers attention.
This font is curly, creative and compelling, perfect for a modern and exciting brand. It’s expressive and engaging look draws people in, yet bare in mind that some people find it slightly too clunky. Also, Lobster is extremely popular, so you will have to get creative with the rest of your logo in order to make it unique and recognisable.

For something big and bold, choose Fredoka One. This is another more informal font but it sure does make an impact with its fun, eccentric style. Fredoka One is best used in stark contrast with the background.
