We had to come up with a name for our production house as well as decide on the type of font colour etc we wanted to have it in. I first went onto a few sites and have them genourate a few names, from they i made up my own as there came to me.
TIP – keep the name simple, attractive and powerful.

Chosen name : Daydreamers
I chose this name because I thought that since me along with others seem to create what we do though daydreaming and thought that it would fit nicely.
This is what I found while deciding how to make the text work. Also a little bit more on typography – “ whats the diffrence between a font and a typeface? Creative producer Norbert florendo offers a very concise explanation : “A font is what you use, and typeface is what you see”

Colour on colour (black BG goes with anything)
Yellow on green BG –have hard time reading.
I have decided that the colour of the writing will be blue. The reason for this is because it’s a calm colour that stands out and gets noticed easy. Another reason for this choice is because I have called the production house DayDreamers and feel that it fits the name. Ive also decided that I’ll use the blue red colour combo if I chose to have more then one colour. The reason for this is that I like how these two colours together. I’m also considening using the colours blue and black together because they also work well together. The font is going to be bold to help it stand out some more. I like the ravie and rosewood font because they not only stand out but look kinda creative, they seem more advanturous then the others ive come across. The site cool text has an interesting selection of font to look at, out of the ones you can chose from the ones I like are Quicksilver, Rage, Snowman, Warp, Bad Acid, Frosty and Glowing Hot. Out of the ones I like I’ll be either going for quicksilver or ravie, my reasons for picking one of these is because the Quicksiliver kinda looks like paint and I like the effect it has. The reason for ravie is because its simple yet fancy and I think that it would fit nicely with the DayDreamers name.
