Description: WIP for a future ATOMICvibe sub-brand. Can't yet disclose the full nature of this sub-brand, but it will be art-related. The icon used here is repurposed and modified from a letterpress poster I designed as a graduation gift for my fiancée when she finished her 1-year Master's program. Click here to see the poster on my Flickr stream. We have a thing for penguins. The flying penguin symbolizes aspirations and great achievement. Type is custom, and the Us are made to look like bird beaks pointing down. The umlauts over the Us form the bird's eyes, while the negative space within the bowls of the Us forms the beaks. The whole typeface is built around the shape of the U, and is meant to evoke a funky, retro style.

Float? (Floaters: 28 )

Edited to bring the type into a more condensed unit. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the floats, guys! This is probably going to be a WIP for some time (since it's a mark for myself), so any suggestions or constructive crits are welcome. I'm actually working on some adjustments to it right now, one of which being to reduce the weight of the W, since it's looking really heavy right now. Another thing I'm debating is whether or not I need the nostrils in the beaks. At this size, in a full lockup, I'm not sure if it's overkill. Maybe it'd be OK if this were just an all-type execution. Another thing I'm considering is another version in which the penguin is holding the flag. I'll post up some stuff as I go along.

WOW, thanks for the wonderful comments, guys! Haven't had a ton of activity on this one, so I figured either people just weren't feeling it, or it just slipped through the cracks.**How do you guys feel about the nostrils in the bird beaks/U letters in the type? Are they overkill?**What about the size relationship of icon to type?
