    Goodday my pals,
    I want to design a logo for my web design company using text. That is, GOLDENWATERS in bold, then a thick horizontal line beneath. Then with the words under the line: Systems Limited. This will have a small font.
    My Question: what will be the most catchy font to use as the fonts i need are not in photoshop, illustrator, fireworks.
    Thanks,
    Golden Waters

    That's part of being a designer! Really for your company I think only you can make that definitive decision. You can us for feedback on some of your choices though...we will gladly let you know what does and doesn't work.

    Start with some sketches. Begin with paper, end with computer.
    I would take a look at some free font libraries, there are many. Just search "free fonts" in Google.
    Being a design company, you want something catchy/stylish. The way you mentioned you logo above gave me the impression of a law firm. Solid, simple, plain, and kinda boring. Just saying.

    I like mixing up ARIAL and ARIAL BOLD

    Mess with the letter spacing to make it closer and then with the Systems Limited Spread the letter spacing out and make it smaller text.

    maybe do something similar with this logo for the water.

    Sorry, once I saw the name you wanted to work with my mind just went for it lol... I hope this helps you out.

    Try comic sans. Its the font all designers love!

    I would agree,that it's all up to you. If you are satisfied with your outcome definitely it will turn out great!

    There are a lot of ideas that you can have,but it will be your idea only that will make you satisfied!

    try looking at Google fonts which allow a greater selection of fonts, by using a simple line of code

    It depends on what "look" you're going for. It could be either a unique script font or some bold, really heavy fonts, but you wouldn't know until you know what your company image is. Would you care to give some more information?
