Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Designing a Logo for a Band.
If you're a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you have access to the files used throughout this course. This is in the exercise files folder. If you're a monthly subscriber, you won't have access to these files, but you will be able to follow along with files of your own. Throughout this course, I use typefaces available on Adobe Typekit. Typekit is a recent addition to the Adobe Creative Cloud. If you have a subscription to the Creative Cloud, then you have access to these fonts. Once selected, the fonts are synced through the Creative Cloud application.
If you don't have access to typekit, choose typefaces with similar qualities.
