Help me pick a new watermark

Olive Oil


There are a lot of beautiful watermarks out there in the world. 

People spend a lot of time and money creating graphic image watermarks that really sing. 

Being rather lazy, I pick mine straight out of the generic apple bin. I used Papyrus for an awfully long time, then saw that Generation Xers were making fun of it, with the same sort of derision they bag on Comic Sans for. So I changed into something else so as not to look too dated.

Don't normally care, still love old timey fonts like Cooper but not for this purpose. A watermark says a lot about a man or a woman. And I tend more classic than modern.

Last year I used Lux. Still like it, but perhaps I need a change? What do you think? Like any of these? Care to recommend a different one? Any graphic artists with good ideas out there?

Lux
























Mistral
























Orator

I dunno... but I think Mistral speaks to me about who I think you are in terms of your photo work.

I like Lux...modern enough but more importantly it kind of lightly vanishes and doesn’t detract from the actual photo.

I prefer no watermark in the image space, so I use the swash version of the typeface "Invisible".

Seriously Jon, they look a little sad and lonely without a watermark to me.

Lux. To me the most important reason for a watermark is for credit, not to prevent theft of the image.

Lux, looks clean and classy.
