Float? (Floaters: 15 )

Add to Pad (In 2 Pads )

Description: This is highly WIP, but since the general form won't change, I just want to ask you is the sign readable enough for you? I've spent too much time on sketching so I can't judge it myself anymore... Thanks!

Looks great, but I just can't read it.

I think it's really nice but it is hard to read. First I read all city hour then I read jazz city hour and then finally got jazz city choir.

I was convinced it reads %22Jay City Choir,%22 but then I re-read Sean's comment up there, and now I can't be so sure. Is it %22Jazz City%22 or %22Jay City?%22 The more I look at it, the more I think it's supposed to be %22Jazz City.%22*FWIW, the typography is BEAUTIFUL, but if legibility is a concern of yours (and why wouldn't it be?), you might want to spend some more time with it.*I could try to explain my thoughts on how you might be able to do this, but it would just be easier if I show you what I mean. I took a screen capture of this and played with it a bit in Photoshop. If you're interested, I can email it to you.

Wow, someone DID read it correctly, hell yeah! The correct answer is Jazz City Choir, congrats to Sean and atomicvibe! %3B)**Seriously though, I'm totally grateful for all of your comments, this is exactly what I needed - now I know I have to *seriously* work on legibility of this one.**atomicvibe, I'd really love to see it! Please send it over to tomoki at tomoki dot pl, thanks!

Wow! This jazz rocks! :) It looks fantastic even if you can\'t read it, though I\'m sure Atomic shared some useful Vibes with you. I\'d love to see the final logo!

It took me a while to figure it out. I actually got Choir first! I had the hardest time with the J of Jazz. I\'m with Luka in that it really looks fantastic regardless of it not being immediately readable. It was a fun puzzle. :)
