Here is a logo I made for a website that will sell homemade knitted hats, scarfs, ect.. Suggestions/comments appreciated. (all three are the same except for the color) -Todd
Oh sorry, the g's are different. -Todd
Todd - Kudos for crafting something special for this craft-related job. A few things you might look at: * the connectors coming off the u, d and l seem too different from each other. The 'itti' works nicely because the connectors are uniform. * You might omit the connection between the 'p' and the 'i' and also consider omitting the connector between the d and l. * the g on the middle design is sweet, but the other g fits in better. * You might look at the inconsistent height of the ascenders on the 'ddl' * if your ascenders, descenders looped, it might look more...more homespun. * The initial cap 'C' looks too large in relation to the 'K' * Can any knitting tools be incorporated...can the descenders become loose thread? hope this helps. good luck. a few fonts that might work if the client suggests revisions -- P22 has a Needlepoint font, Dave Bastian has a font called Noodle Script, and My Fonts sells Coquette by Mark Simonson. bj
This gives me alot of new ideas. Ive been looking at this a while with old eyes, so this helps. thanks bj. -Todd
lower case "g"in green version is nice
Sorry, this isn't specific, but your font seems too mechanical for me. I see a cutesey handwriting font being more fluid, with no harshness to it.
I guess since this is a logo for a website, I was going for cutesey, with a dab of tech. Which ended up making it a little more vertical/rigid than fluid. Yeah, I am going to tweak this logo a bit after the holiday here and post some new versions. Thanks for the feedback everyone.
I think the type choice is to thin and doesn't feel like knitting. I think of fat yarn and country style. tiny threads sticking out of a thick line...Something that is soft and cuddly. so a typeface that has some weight
It took me a while to get back to this logo, but by sorting and absorbing all the comments above Ive come up with these three variations. Its actually more of a progression. The first one: is similar to the originals except thicker, more yarn-like, and I removed the connector on the p. The second: I started to make the connectors and shape of the n's and u more uniform while leaving the varying heights of the d's and l alone. I also added some breathing room. Third: I just finished making the connectors and heights more uniform. What do you think? Todd
The thicker style looks a lot better and taking the connector off the p looks nice as well. I was liking the uneven ascenders on the d and l -- have you tried making the t's uneven? Crossing the t's at a slant if you do might help it not look so rigid/techy
For this logo I do like the uneven ascenders a tiny bit better. It makes look more hand crafted. I havent tried making the t's uneven, Ill give it a go to see how it looks.
The differing ascender lengths gave it a sort of crafted naivet
I like the consistent connectors of the bottom with the uneven ascenders.
Thanks for the comments everyone. I see now that the first stroke of the u looks a bit too much like its owned by the C. But I dont want to detatch it, i like it connected. Im going to take a look and see how other script fonts finish their C's. Ill work on trying out some variations on the l and tt. Ill post the results. Keep m coming though.
