Fonts speak louder than words
Having trouble designing your poster, leaflet and banner for maxi-mum impact? Whilst a photo might speak one thousand words, your choice of font says a lot too. - Roller Banner
Design is not about just great imagery, it�s also about great fonts. Designers over the global spend hours designing beautiful fonts to offer us endless possibilities. In the ever popular Helvetica for the historic New Baskerville, here�s a collection of our favourites fonts.
Helvetica - a fantastic all-rounder
Use it on: letterheads, brochures, banners etc.
Fashioned with legibility to aid clear communication as its primary objective, Helvetica is omnipresent today on just about any computer. Developed in 1957 by Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoff-man, it�s a beautifully crafted font that is so popular it even possesses its own feature length film called... Helvetica.
Proxima Nova - looks great BIG!
Apply it to: PVC banners, exhibition stand or roller banners.
Bridging the space between Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk it makes sense a contemporary font with a geometric appearance. Developed by Mark Simonson in 2005, we feel it�s a good �un as well as the lightweight looks great massive.
Open Sans - ideal for small text
Apply it to: business cards, flyers and leaflets for great readability.
Created by Steve Matteson and commissioned by Google, who thought it had an "upright stress, open forms along with a neutral, yet friendly appearance".
It�s the most popular font employed for Web and small font size applica-tions due to its large vertical-height (tall lower-case letters). It�s not only free to download and on most devices, but it�s the state font for the UK Labour Party.
New Baskerville - works supremely along with body copy
Put it on for: brochures and leaflet body copy.
A serif font is but one that has small decorative lines included with add to the form of the type. New Baskerville is just about the best one around.
Created by Mr Baskerville himself in 1757, it's got aged ex-tremely well. Plus, the roman and italic work well together or individually.
Franklin Gothic - Another good all-rounder and looks good printed at most sizes
Use it for: PVC banners as a result of A6 flyers.
Born in the USA!
It encapsulates everything American at the start of the 20th Century, 1902 to be precise. Bold, brash and assured. This font works well being a headline when with a softer physical stature.
