Mastheadtypefaceresearch I have researched some fonts for my rnb music magazine. I will be considering using one of these fonts.
This is a plain and simple font called OptimusPrinceps. The letters are narrowed and spaced well together. This simple design would appeal to both females and males. This font is easily read and recognised however from my research I found out that this title would not catch the audiences attention.
This font is called El&Font gothic. This is an eye catching font as the way the letters are made are distorted, this will draw the users attention to look at the title and try to read what it is. The shape “e” is backwards which gives it a funky effect. I like this font however from my research not many people are able to read what it says. Also this font is more suited for a gothic rock type magazine then my own.
This font is called urban sketch. This font looks like it has been drawn in with little grey coloured lines. Furthermore it also looks like the sketches have been made in a stencil. The font looks urban, which is also in its name. This font would be ideal for my music rnb magazine.
This font is called Road Movie. It is a modern type font which is bold and looks eye catching. The font itself is black with white wholes in it, this is easily readable and it also looks appealing to both females and males. This would also be a good font for my music rnb magazine.
This font is called Varsity. The font is bold and the outline of the letters are white giving it a nice modern effect. This would appeal to both genders and my target audience well as the letter shapes are different and funky. The name of the “Varsity” also suggests it is a unique font.
The name of this font is called Street Writer. My research showed that most youngsters like to see graffiti in the magazine title, this is one that caught my eye. The font is bold and the letters are at different angles which give it the graffiti look. The problem with this font is that it is hard to read as there is so much going on in the title, A music magazine title should be easy to read but dynamic as well.
This font is called urban scrawl. This font caught my eye and I think it is appealing to my target audience. Moreover this sort of font is liked by both males and females. I liked the idea of having graffiti as my title however some people may have difficulties reading it, on this font however it is easy to read and it also effective, this is a good font to use for my rnb music magazine.
