Logo for Design Studio, Pixelcraft.
As seen on:
I love the type. But, have you tried using a solid dot over the i instead of an 'o'? Nice work.
Nice idea, but it needs kerning, especially between the %22P%22 and %22i%22 and the %22r%22 and %22a%22.
Thanks Saawan, yes I had tried a solid dot, I've been tweaking this for months, and I think this is the one that works best
I disagree sdijock, thats for the input though.
thanks fogra, I really admire your portfolio!
very nice, i like the combination of color.
I like it! Funny thing is....I'm seeing more of the style typeface. I figure it's largely influenced by the current trend of ugly-yet-playful freehand illustrated characters and simple retro illustrations (i.e.getfirefox.com, reelenz.at, logistetica.com)
Really digging this Pixelcraft. Nice one!
I'm with sdijock on this logo. it's almost there,.. IMO think it needs some better spacing and the lowercase r is a bit odd in comparison of the other letters, also if you study the strokes and angles as a brush or pen would design them.I think the %22r%22 needs a more vertical stroke. I feel the type is bordering on fun and perfection but has not decided which way to go.
BTW I do like it though :-)
Nice type logo to you too sir!
Thanks guys. Regarding the typography - It's really interesting reading the couple of comments, but I do think it looks right. It doesn't have 'staticness' or solidity of a sans or stricter type logo, the I've really tweaked this a lot since concept and think it works, Appreciate the comments as always.
I know it's a cliche, but I wish there was some kind of pixel element in it to connect the craft with the technology - like a square dot over the 'i', but that probably wouldn't work...
that was one of my initial concepts, and you're right, it didn't work, so I began to focus more on the 'craft' as if it's a magical way pixels can be used in artwork. I wanted to end up with a fun %26 magical look*
I made a type a lot like this the other day, but then it wasn't as smooth as this one %3B) good work
The font's called Cocktail Shaker. Here's the link: http://www.veer.com/products/typedetail.aspx?image%3DUMT0000056
I have to agree with a couple people about the kerning. It may look right to you now, but I think if you were to remove yourself from it for a couple months (I know this is impossible...) you might feel differently about it. Not only does it look cramped in some spots and loose in others, when you reduce this down it'll grab too much ink in the tight spots and look funny. Sorry mate, nice job, but I think its 90%25 of the way there.
Yumm cocktail shaker... is it 5 yet?
Thanks for the comments. Believe me bpotstra, I have printed this and various sizes and it scales fine.
Love the 'ft' ligature.
yup , some originality here
Thanks Kwaku, that is some showcase you have!
I know you have been told about the kerning and feel that this logo is done (which I can fully appreciate) but it is in need of a little bit of kerning. With that being said, if you are satisfied with it, run with it.
This is excellent. Great personality in this piece. I do agree though with the other comments regarding the kerning, but as we haven't really seen it in different versions I assume you got it all under control. :-)
