Hi,

I am trying to design a logo. I like the type of font used in frazr (http://www.frazr.com)'s and twitter (http://www.twitter.com)'s logo but I don't know where I could find a similar font to mess around with in Photoshop. Does anyone know what kind of font these typefaces are? I also really like pownce (http://www.pownce.com)'s logo font. Could anyone point me in the right direction to finding these (I've never bought fonts before).

Thanks,

MadDoc

the easiest way i have found to determine a font is an amazing website called quite humorusly << whatthefont.com >> it works by uploading an image, and it will find the closest fonts to what you like. From there you'll have to check to see if you have any of those fonts in your library.
My rec on a program to sort through your library is linotype fontexplorer x. what sets it apart is the fact that you can easily turn fonts on and off, and you can choose whatever you like as an example of the font... i.e. if you want to see what "Mike" looks like with the same font as korn uses (btw there is a font that looks just their logo... its called kornucopia) linotype will show you.

Well, I can point you in the right direction for the Frazr logo at least... it's in a typeface called Meta Bold which can be bought as part of this (http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.htm?pid=421358&gclid=CKSG8prRiI4CFQMfEgodsyxrEA) set.

The Twitter Logo is in "Chickens" by SparkyType. The 'r' have been modified a bit.
