Picking out fonts is hard y'all.

No im not blogging about Vegas. Pics are at home. I'm at work. That'd be a no-go.

But i was sitting here on my lunch break and i had our photography business name in photoshop...and i clicked on the font name area and just started hitting the down arrow so it'd just scroll through the different fonts and i could see what all of the letters looked like in different fonts. That doesnt sound too bad except i have 811 fonts installed on top of the default ones. And i want the R and the J to be one font. And i want the Studios to be a different font. And then ill somehow combine them.

But Rebecca, you have a logo already!

Yes, yes i do, and i dont quite like it much. I'd prefer something more modern and handwritten or sans serif or something along those lines and Justin likes the fanciness of it now. I think it's too fancy. That - and with the new site launching soon, im trying to get it all laid out properly and i dont like how the nav menu lines up with the current logo. That damn "J" goes down way too far past the "R" and therefore it doesnt line up with  the nav bar like i want. So i repeated this to Justin numerous times and then i started trying to figure out a solution. Hence the predicament im in right now. Trying to be nice and have Justin involved in this wonderful decision, I picked out a bunch of separate fonts that i liked the R in and numbered them and put them in a single document and sent it to him. I did this with the J and the word Studios too. And then i told him to pick out his favorites and id go from there. So he did. And i thought it was funny because he did NOT pick the word Studios in the current font we have it as. bwaha. Maybe i kinda knew he wouldnt and tricked him? hehe. but there was a similar one in there that he did pick and that i liked better anyway.

so here i am with 3 different files open in photoshop all with our new font picks, trying to make something work. Maybe i should get back to my real work and give this a break, cause it's all starting to look the same.

I am on a spending freeze because I bought a new camera and accessories. Sad thing is, I already have in mind the next lense I NEED to buy. Why did I pick such an expensive hobby?

i know how you feel. I have ass loads of fonts too. I also am never happy with the things I create for myself. It can be perfect wonderful and amazing, but because its mine, I wont be happy with it.

Step away from it for a few days and then come back to it, look through design mags and sites to get some outside inspiration.
