Wellington Sign Design Resources

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Fonts | Design considerations | Where do I start?”][vc_text_separator title=”Google Fonts” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-google” title_align=”separator_align_left” add_icon=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Google Fonts project is a strong resource to help you and your team members consider font possibilities for your business sign. Establishing a general font/lettering style is a great first step to creating your sign. The Sign Artists at Wellington Signs & Graphics can take your general idea and develop your concept artistically into the perfect sign.

Most font families from Google, are clearly legible, cross-platform and can eventually be used to theme your website. It’s a good starting point to have when investing in a proper sign, banner or other advertising project.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1501273690379{background-color: #eeee22 !important;}”]

Email or text yourself the font family name so it remains in memory and can be accessed at a later time. Screen captures and web Url’s will work too. There are literally 1000’s of font families and even the best designer will struggle tracking down a particular font without a real tangible reference. We would relate it to trying to find a missing person without a photo or likeness re-creation.
