    Anyone have any font recommendations for web advertisement banners? I have been assigned to create some of these for work and don't have any professional experience in advertising. Any advice?

    thanks,
    Eric

    Need more info.

    Unfortunately without more information, it's an impossible question to even begin to answer.

    It's like giving no context and asking "what color should the banner/web site/etc. be?".:confused:

    Blue?

    Fuschia?

    Futura?

    I make banners as part of my job...

    I use Arial Rounded for one site, and Myriad Pro for the other - as this ties in with corporate branding.

    Another popular choice is Helvetica...

    No surprises here!!
