Brilliant! I'm allergic to wool but I would try to wear those ;))

BigAl67 said on Aug. 28 '08

Love that continuous linework. Great looking mark.

mindysteen said on Aug. 28 '08

Very nice. And this looks just like an alpaca. If it were me, it'd end up looking like a camel or something. Great, clean work!

firebrand said on Aug. 28 '08

Fantastic, I love it.

logomotive said on Aug. 28 '08

Maumer, I really like the look, just curious though,.. was the way you did the single line just for style? It seems you could have achieved the same basic shape without overlapping lines.

s7even said on Aug. 28 '08

Thanks to all for the kind words..
@ BigAl67 - good to see another kiwi on here! Not sure how it took me this long to stumble onto your work - nice showcase.
@ Logomotive.. The overlapping continuous line was indeed a style consideration. A simple outline of a silhouetted alpaca could probably have worked here also, but this was a great (and seemingly appropriate) opportunity to create something in this continuous line style. I have been fascinated with this style since it first came to my attention and just love the way the overlap makes it possible to describe the form of the animal (beyond the silhouette) in very simple and efficient terms. Initial feedback from the client was all very positive and also identified the connection between the linework and a single thread of yarn.

I almost forgot - type08 you will be pleased to learn that alpaca fibre is superior to wool (incl. cashmere and mohair) in all the ways that matter (finer, warmer, softer, more lustrous etc.) it also contains no lanolin making it naturally hypoallergenic.. downside is the yield is much lower than sheep or goats making it somewhat more precious (read expensive).

the alpaca looks great & expensive, very well simplified and that golden color rocks. don't love the typography though.

Lovely mark - it's got a Felix Sockwell feel to it (that's a compliment btw).
