Scan of a sketch I'm about to vector for something I'm working on. Not sure how the two L's will work together, but I'll probably loosen up that part a little bit anyway as it seems a little cramped.

I think that the way you handled the two L's is great. Loosen up is probably good idea.
Looks great Claire!
Love those "h"s. =)
Looks promising. Nice rhythm.
Wow, type is really your thing.
Oh yeah :)
cool! maybe the loops of the Ls can intertwine, letting the second L be a bit taller?
It's really cool! Agree with Henric about the second L to be a bit taller. And maybe the Hello should have more space between letters and be a very few bigger because the Method seams bigger now by its flow at the bottom. But it's great anyway and it surely will be better in vector and when you work with spaces lines thickness:) Great work Claire!
P. S. And it's not critique:)
I really want to critique this, but I honestly can't find anything wrong.
I like the 2 L's the most, it adds lots of character to this type!! big fan of your work, it's always top-notch!
On the M swash, you may want to make thinner the part under the "et", and bolder the part under "od".
Lovely! I wonder if the first L's top can circle back to form the loop of the 2nd L?
Really nice concept. Like your works. If I knew so well as I draw I would be happy...
Nice flow, Claire. Maybe m's leg should go more smoothly to the right.
Wow, thanks very much for all the kind and thoughtful comments! I really appreciate it.
Tweaking the vectored version at the minute. I've made the second L a little bit taller (thanks Henric and Sergey) and spaced out 'Hello' which makes it look more balanced next to the second word, so great suggestions there.
Smoothing out the right M leg a little bit too (good call Milosz) and adjusted the stroke widths on the swash (thanks Pablo!)
Connecting/intertwining the L's is a really interesting suggestion that I hadn't thought of at all. I'm going for a really natural flow following the letter shapes created out of very quick freeform sketches, which is where the current L's came from. That said, I'm not done with this yet so will give it a shot - thanks a lot!
Wow, this is looking fab!
Thanks a lot Mike and Bilal, glad to hear it!
Beautiful as always Claire
Thank you Chris, appreciate it!

More or less final digital version. Did quite a few adjustments from the original sketch, notably to the second L, overall spacing and stroke widths. I also tried connecting the two L's but it made them quite tall/too imposing, so think I'm going to keep them like this.

So, do you create all your typography from scratch? Or do you find inspiration from fonts and then modify from there?
