Artist Reveals What Fonts Were Used To Design Famous Logos
There is no doubt that a logotype is the face of the company; that‘s why each element of some of the most iconic and well-recognizable logos is carefully thought out, even though they might seem simple.

Each font can communicate a specific personality and tone—this is why it‘s particularly important to go with something that perfectly represents the brand‘s identity.
