Description: an unused graphic direction for a school. I still have plans for this one though down the road. I was challenged to combine the lion and the lamb along with a cross/sword. I am working with another style direction for the final logo(crest) design, I'll post that when completed.

this client got a hold of me because of these other design I had already designed for another client. http://logopond.com/gallery/detail/165836
So it has been a nice challenge to see if I can come up with another lion/lamb combo. Its been fun.

the ampersand is throwing me off, seems like its style doesnt match up?

Bernd, thanks, bud.
Same goes out to you Dan. cheers.
Sam, I hear ya on the facing to the right. Its weird, but because the lamb is lower and then faces to the left it looks a tad off balance.
Maybe because we read left to right, top to bottom, I don\'t know, but it feels better this way. But then again it might be just me.

David, you might have something there. The ampersand added a tough of softness to the type for me. And the fact that there are some think and thin lines in the mark, it felt like it worked. But I may I may need to rethink it. Thanks, man.

Mike how about adding the dagger as the plus sign=& it might clean up the design.

Good thought, Rudy.

Placed the cross/sword in place of the ampersand. I think that works also. THX, Rudy. And you also, David, for making me take another look.

cheers.

Very clever. Very original.

Colin, yeah I agree, maybe I should change out the two so the cross is the main image.
might do that. Tanks! < ughh! I mean \"THANKS\"> (HA!)
orca, thanks goes your way also. appreciate it!

Cross instead of the ampersand really does look better, more consistent with the bold type & visual a reference to the mark, which is great for a type-only situation.

I agree, Josh.
Changed the main image to be without the ampersand.
Thanks bud.
Thanks again Rudy for the insight.

I think I prefer the ampersand.

ColinTierney Jan. 15 '13

mikey, you should have the cross break the baseline and extend to a point like you have in the mark.

thats what im talking about now it looks homogeneous to steal another \'david\'s\' word :D

Reply
Mikeymike Jan. 16 '13

G A L L E R Y!! THX.
Sam, I do like both, but this works cleaner and I think was a good suggestion to be More \"homogeneous\" as David puts it! :D
Colin, see what your saying, but I wanted to give the impression of a cross more than the sword between the words.
David. :D
