Thanks Deividas.*I didn't mention in the description that Kinsale is surrounded with many old walls of forts and castles that standed there, and some of them still are and they are touristic attraction also.*They were also inspiration for this %22brick wall like, shield like%22 logomark.

Andrej, nice mark you have there:)*Have you tried with different type?

Reply
hyperborea Oct. 01 '10

Yup mate. I tried several type options.*This, and one more made the best appearance in my opinion. I will reupload the other one for you to see if it is better option than this.

Thanks Alen, waiting for yours to see...*@roko Here's type updated.*This one gives more place for a mark to come in the first plan, it's more subtle than the first one...

Rokac Oct. 01 '10

Yep I like this layout more than the previous one.*I know I'm boring but you could also try to make the %22of%22 in lower case and italic. That would spice the type a bit:)

hyperborea Oct. 01 '10

Thats definitely worth exploring.*No, you're not boring - you're very constructive!

Rokac Oct. 01 '10

Nice update Andrej, nice.*I'm with Deividas, reduce the size of the mark and maybe slightly increase the size of %22of%22:-)

just two lines and you have versatile logo with great aesthetic quality - students looking at this should make note in the power of simplicity**well done hyperborea

Roko giving live coaching! lol. Very nice mark Andrej..im just indifferent about type. Not sure if san serif would be a better option... but none the less Its got a very inviting and strong feel as JoePrince says.

Thanks all. Sean you were there in Kinsale for real? seems like the great place based on my researches. I'm glad I nailed it if you say so. Chers!

Nice mark - saw the shield right away. I've been to Kinsale, very quaint little town. The type looks good but did you try stacking it on two lines? It might help balance out things a bit and give your logo a nice vertical look. Just a thought.

Did you design the font yourself?

Reply
hyperborea Oct. 04 '10

Thank you all for floates!*@Ryan: No, the typeface is Amasis with a little bit of manually adjusted kerning.

I was in Kinsale last week. You've absolutely captured this beautiful place in the mark. Well done.

Great mark, I like the way you divided green and blue. Also for typography it would be much better if it was Port and Kinsale in small capse (not faux one), so that %22of%22 would fit perfectly.

Worth to mention that this one is published in Gareth Hardys %22Smashing Logo Design%22 book :) TY Gareth.
