early stages of a type exploration for a logo design.
rough pen work, and I know it needs a makeover, but curious on any feed back.

Pretty neat. The gap above the "s" is the only thing jumping out as feeling "off."
I'm digging the rough pen work, Mike. Ads character if this is the look you're going for. Loving that 'W-t' ligature hike. My only suggestion would be to ad a weight variance somewhere along the stroke of the starting terminal of the "W". ps. Thanks a million for the knubi purchase ;)
@Scott Greci see what your saying. THX.
@Matt Vergotis agree, there are other areas where I need to work the thick and thin also.
And yeah love the knubi font you have going on. cheers, bud.
great hand ... but ... at first glance I had read Nilliston ... no it's me .. now I see the W ...
Fits great with the North Dakota mark you made earlier!
Love the grit feel of the script. It carries weight, character and a story––makes me want to visit. Great start.
Williston is very nice, with maybe a minor adjustments, but 'visit' and 'nd' parts are suffocating it and taking away all its beauty - different style for those parts and different lockup might fix that.
Super cool. I kind of like the handmade quality of this, even though I realize it's just because it's a scan. Something about this particular script just feels like it will work better if you retain the "rough around the edges" look. Granted, I haven't seen the clean vector version. But I really like it as it is.
I do agree with @Matt Vergotis about the flourish at the beginning of the "W" -- Doesn't seem to quite match the rest of it.
@TAS thanks, Bernd.
@Eric Stanley glad you spotted that subtle hint of the ND type.
@Luke Anspach appreciate the feed back. Thanks.
@Alen Type08 Pavlovic good insight and I will take another look at that lockup. Thanks, Alen. Hope all is well your way. cheers.
Im also not good on pen, but same concern with Bernd.
I think the space of "W" need some touch.
NIce work sir!
I really like it, the only thing throwing me off is the ND. I read Willi_ and then my eye gets pulled to the ND. I think the simplified text like the Visit would work great there.
very nice, agree with Alen about those changes :)
@Mike Bruner cheers unc, all peaches and cream at my side, no pain no gain ;)
Good work mate!
More ND love, Mike! I'm diggin it! At first I wasn't sure that the 'visit' fit with the rest of the type, but the more I look at it, the more it seems to be a good contrast. Maybe give it and the 'ND' a little more breathing room, but the type is all spot-on.
Cheers on the great feedback, designer's, really appreciate it.
looks really cool!
