History of Fonts

If you’ve read this blog for more than a year or two, you’ve learned that I have a certain love… and hate for specific fonts. ¬†(Here are some of my past posts on fonts) (Go here to catch up on some of my “I loath Algerian font” themed posts which got me sited in the Algerian Font’s wiki page as a font hate site… Ha! I’m such a nerd) Every now an again, I’ll find a very interesting video or blog about fonts. When designing (something we all do – every time we hang a sign on a door for parents to read), paying attention to the font is important. Some fonts are better designed for big signs, others for easy reading text. Using the wrong font in some situations communicates something different than what you’re trying to say with your font. I know, for some of you this sounds¬†ridiculous, but it’s true.

My good friend Jonathan Cliff knows of my love of fonts and sends me links all the time. Here’s a really interesting video on the history of fonts.. why they’re called fonts, why we call them “upper case” and “lower case” and even where they term¬†italics¬†came from. However, there’s a big chunk of the video that deals with the infamous Comic Sans font, where it came from and why so many people hate it.

Enjoy!

Multisite environments for kids

After consulting experts and leaders in all things multisite, we at Worlds of Wow have a few things to share regarding logos and branding. We are excited share them with the CMO family in regards to multisite kid spaces. A special thanks to Kenny for letting me guest blog here today!

Same Logos:  This may seem like a no-brainer but developing the same logos helps your church in several ways.    Using the same logo throughout all your ministry spaces maximizes your budget dollars.  Like logos also helps your church environment.  Families will associate your ministry by the logos-just like any other brand recognition.

Same Colors:  By choosing the same color palette for your ministry spaces you create similar environments.  Let your walls work for you! Colors are a great way to keep your campuses unified in look and design.  A fresh coat of paint on the walls can do a lot to spruce up an environment.  Consider your logo and choose wall colors that compliment them.

Same Signs:  Having the same style of sign will make it much easier for families to recognize classrooms campus to campus.  Often times, your families will jump campus to campus.  By utilizing like signage-you create an even greater sense of community among your campuses regardless of their location.
