My brother recently got engaged so I am making a monogram for him and his fiancee. The mark includes a J, T, and heart.
As seen on:
spotted it straight away. nice job. I like the J, I also had done something similar with my Navan Physio hand as the Physio's name is Joanne (she didn't really care thought!), its a nice letterform to work with.**Are we going to see color and will you do a custom on the type? this would work lovely printed embossed! :)
Oh they must like it, great monogram for life.
It%60s creative and has a nice flow, but rotated heart always reminds me on something else.. :)
@Paul, thanks bud. Still playing around with color and type but I'm open for suggestions.*@Jan, thank you sir. They do like it indeed.*@Srdjan, hah thanks for the visual :P
really think this guy done a smashing job on this...**http://www.impallari.com/lobster/**might be a bit heavy though.
Btw Srdjan, I did some rotations and transformations with the mark that will serve as decorative pieces on some of the printed items.
Might be a little heavy but I'll definitely look into it Paul, much appreciated :)
Aight. Look forward to see some more. :)
@mcdseven Ah, I can definitely find a use for that. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Srdjan.*@Kev, I'm sure that will come in handy for me sooner or later also :)*Thanks again Paul.
like where this is going, Joe.*And thanks for showing that font suggestion, Paul. Liken that font. (not that it fits this, joe, just like the font.)
Don't forget to donate! :-D
Thank you Mr. Bruner :)*@Kev, haha. You go first :p
hey guys, Smashing (just incase you guys have not come across it) is simply 'smashing' for quality cut typefaces, and they are also free. Some beautiful ones imho**http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/11/15/20-new-high-quality-free-fonts/**cheers
Really Clever Joe. IMO I think the type is important here and needs to be a little bigger. More Jessica and Tony?
You better knock that off Paul! Pretty soon you're gonna be giving your house away :P Only kidding, free resources are always appreciated.*@Mike, thanks for the input. This is a WIP and the type is just in place until I figure out a nice match. I'll make it bigger though in any case, cheers!
UPDATED, thanks Mike.
Added color and changed the type...found a nice one from Hoefler %26 Frere Jones.
Thanks baehrden, still playing with possible layouts. Cheers.
I love everything about it dude. You're bro must be very excited.
Really nice :)
Mads and Muhammad, cheers fellas. Still making minor adjustments but he is very happy with it which is the most important part. Thanks.
This is sweet mark Joe... One question tho... Why Jessica %26 Tony... why not Tony and Jessica? Are you the designer from the bride's side :D... JK.%0D*Coz usually the male name is followed... e.g Romeo %26 Juliet, Antonio %26 Cleopetra etc?
Thanks Riz! I did some research and thought the woman's name goes first...apparently I need to check my sources :P**Thanks for the heads up mate.
I'd make it a tad smaller, but overall its very impressive. A nice gift to give to a sibling. Nice choice of type.
@Anthony %26 Paul, you guys are right. I'll make the mark smaller.*@Peter, thank you.
UPDATED, thanks for the suggestions.
Nice, Joe, love the heart shape!
Hey Sean, how's it going my man? Been a while.
I've updated the mark and type. Made it look less like a butt or boobs and have the heart be more subtle. It also brings out the legibility for the J %26 T better. Cheers!
Yeah, cool changes. I'm liking.
Oh, that's nice!
Milosz and Nikita, cheers!
Cheers Alena! My brother and his fiancee both love it and that is the most important part.
Great stuff Joe! :)
Thanks Michael! Appreciate it man :)
Still playing around with different layouts, open to suggestions.
Missed this one joe, nice job combining everything.
Thank you senor James, this was a fun one.
Sorry to burst your bubble...I don't get it at all. Otherwise good work! :)
What's not to get Matt? I mean, I think it's obvious that the mark is a side-view of a house...you know they're doing wonderful things in mental institutions these days :P
Can't keep me eyes off of this baby. Dead on, Joe.
Appreciate the nice comment, Mads.
that's a cool date to get married :)
Not too bad Joe. Keep it up man, can't wait to see what else you've got :P
@Gareth, indeed it is :) Ones all the way across the board...
Woops, didn't see your comment Alexander. Thanks for the kind words :) Cheers!
UPDATED: Added background texture. Cheers!
Elegant work Joe :) Would look great printed on some watercolour paper or parchment-esque stock.
Haha Alen! :) Thanks Josh, it definitely would. Cheers to both of you!
Outstanding! I would love to see it in full spectrum on an invitation card, could you give us the pleasure Mr. Joe?
I'm sure your brother and sister-in-law loved it, Joe. really nice work.
Wow what a nice surprise to wake up to :) @myob, I'll be sure to post links of invitations and other printed items for the wedding @Mikey, thanks a lot for the nice comment...they both loved it. @Pierro, cheers!
Nice mark, but for me the background is very rude, however a good logo :)
Great design...but is it just me or does the date seem like a R.I.P...well after 40 years of marriage...some pray for that!
@Ivan, thanks man. I'm going to remove the background...you're right. @Fabian, haha! I guess only time will tell :P
%5EHey thanks a lot :)
dig it joe...:)
UPDATED background, thanks Ivan.
And thanks nitish and Paskolos. Cheers!
far better w/o the bg.
