Float? (Floaters: 92 )

Add to Pad (In 43 Pads )

Description: My first project won through LogoPond! :-) Logo for Eric DeVine, maker of high quality stringed instruments. The brief called for a literal vine, to play off his surname. Also needed to show a long heritage, craftsmanship and French flair (his surname is of French origin). Another requirement was for the overall shape to fit the headstock of a guitar. Colour prints gold.

I did a mock-up of the guitar headstock and it was looking sweet. Also have worked on the inside 'label' (signed by the maker) and 2 funky t-shirt designs.

%5E Thanks Roko. And for taking the time to visit the client's newly designed website. The photography is awesome, and all his own work! Amazing craftsmanship on his guitars and ukuleles, so it was initially quite intimidating to design a logo to represent that level of skill. I mean, come on, it's an unfair battle - he has cool woodworking tools, and I have a pencil and mouse. %3B-)

@Simon*I completely understand what you're saying:) But again, I don't think he would be so comfortable and good with mouse and pencil as you are:) *Living in Hawaii, crafting beautiful instruments, enjoying music, what a lifestyle, marvelous!

Thanks for all the nice comments on my work, Simon. I enjoy your work too! It seems like you're really enjoying working within a circle in your recent logos, which is really cool, and not easy to do! I would love to see how this one works in one color. Also, I can totally see this working on the headstock, with the V and Devine in pearl, and all the viney stuff in a lighter tone of wood! Gorgeous (and expensive) guitars too!

%5E Hi Eric. This took me completely by surprise. Thank you so much for signing up and commenting here. While what we do is categorized as 'commercial art', I believe we as designers form strong personal attachments to the work we produce, having immersed ourselves in your world for a while, so I'm extremely grateful to be acknowledged beyond a pay cheque. Thank you!

Logo from LN02 book and it is always pleasure to open that page. I think that it's primarily a client and his business was the main inspiring factor here.
