PopCap Games, Inc. is a video game developer and publisher based in Seattle. A subsidiary of Electronic Arts, it is best known for their puzzle games, including the Bejeweled series of tile-matching games, the pachinko-like Peggle and the tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies. [Wikipedia]
While the games each have their own visual identity, the PopCap brand needed an all-encompassing corporate typeface that echoes some of the playfulness without being too expressive itself. It had to be more readable than the game logo faces and at the same time provide the display qualities required for advertising and website headings. The designers found a match in Omnes. Set in primary colors and ocassionally accentuated with shading and glow effects, the resilient sans serif perfectly blends with the various cartoonish characters.
The PopCap logo is rendered in a customized Deftone Stylus.
