I've seen this specific type of shading treatment on a vast number of logos that I've run across and I love it.
For clarification purposes, does this specific type of shading have a formal name or technique associated with it?
I've always figured that this kind of effect could be done roughly with an algorithm or black and white conversion plugin and then fine tuned, rather than entirely hand drawn--but I've never run across anything that splits shades of gray into black bars of varying thickness like this.
Might any of you kind folks here on Typophile have any recommendations on how to consistently produce this effect?
