Anchorage Marina 01d

by atomicvibe • Uploaded: Nov. 18 '10

Description: Hypothetical logo redesign for Anchorage Marina, a marina in my hometown of Baltimore, MD. I pass by there every day, and for months, I've been thinking about how much the marina could use a rebrand. So, I started sketching some ideas on paper, and in an uncanny bout of coincidence, Michael Spitz - from a world away in Croatia - posted a personal logo/typeface design with the same exact name earlier this week. Just goes to show how easy it is for two designers to develop similar ideas, completely independent of one another. Anyway, our respective marks are for different purposes; I may actually pitch these to Anchorage Marina. Type for 'Anchorage' is custom and is based on Art Deco maritime ad posters.

Made a few revisions to this. Changed color scheme, revised the A, added more hatch marks on the points. Any comments?

I like your mark, especially the retro shadow treatment...

Thanks, Jordan! While I have used 3 colors in this design, I really wanted this concept to be able to survive in 1-color, because I think it would look great as an embossed stamp, or a wood carving.
