#42 DC font tests!

Well I've put this on the back burner for awhile: how to present the game name graphically!

I've had my eye on a few different fonts. Mainly Betty Noir, Drive Thru, Rocket Script and Vacation Postcard (the first three can be found on, I'm not sure where I found Vacation Postcard... :P ). I started by typing each one out and then using each one to type out Data Crash. That went okay though none of them really stood out to me. Then i started mixing and matching and I think I found a few combo's that work!

Top to bottom we have:
Vacation Postcard (the 'd' and 'c' with tilt) combined with Rocket Script
Betty Noir with some resizing done
Vacation Postcard (the 'd' and 'c' again) combined with Drive Thru

For me the bottom one really looks good though there is something in the simplicity of the Betty Noir that is also attractive. The top one has potential, maybe adding something through filters might make it more appealing. I'm just testing things out here. i spent a few minutes looking through fonts at and found some others that I also like and might just download later in the week and mess around with. So far though the third set is what I'm really digging right now. I'm also thinking of putting some color to these too. Just have to match the blue I used to paint the figures or get something close to it and come up with a red.
