Revising the vectored version. Updated quite a few things from the sketches to combine the best aspects of both versions.
Of course though, I'm stuck with two slight variations for the 'T'. The top one has a much straighter stem and the end points outwards, a bit like cursive/calligraphy. The stem of the bottom one flares slightly and points the other way - the idea being that it mirrors the shape at the top of the 'd' to create continuity, both pointing inwards towards the rest of the word.

Your thought process is really impressive Claire!
Looking very good Claire! I think you should go with the bottom T, fits the rest of the letters(stems of the r and d) a bit more i think.
You're such a pro at this. Love your type work.
Agree with Pat. Bottom one for me.
I like the Top T more, to me it has a better flow with the whole word!
Cheers for the quick feedback!
Thanks a lot Pat, you're too kind. Yea you're definitely right about the 'o', it helps a potentially awkward pair fit together better.
Jacqui, thank you! That means a lot, especially considering the process behind your work.
Yassine, thanks for your always thoughtful comments! Really good point about the bottom of the other stems.
Travis, cheers for your feedback - appreciate it!
Daniel, just when it was looking like a majority.. ! Haha. I do like that the stem of the top T matches the point at the right end of the crossbar..
Bottom for sure Claire! The /T/ has great flow into the rest of the characters since it's going to towards the right.
Hell yeah, Claire! :)
This is looking up! Exactly how I pictured it, when I was describing how I thought it should look like.
Bottom one for sure!
Looking forward to see more of this.
Awesome work, Claire. I love your hand drawn script. I'm curious, could you post a link to a large version of this shot? I would love to see the edits you wrote as to get ideas how I could become a better hand drawer myself.
definitely the bottom ‘T’
I think I prefer the second one as well. Sweet work, Claire!
Bottom 'T' for my two cents. I agree it's interesting to get a glimpse of your process. Very nice work.
Bottom for sure Claire! The T really does help set the tone for the rest of the face. Beautiful work as always—I'm glad you're still showing the process too!
You rock this style! High-res would be awesome to see :)
Thank you for a piece of process Claire.
I am with the bottom option :)
Whoa, bottom is looking fantastic and I'm sure only going to get better. Love the sharing of process, there should be more of that on Dribbble.
Great concept Claire. For me the bottom version is better. I like your works, it's very, very inspirational :)
Great to see your working process, Claire. It's a pleasure to see the hard work and thoughts you put into your work. I also admit I was trying to read your edits on it :)
Thank you all for the kind words and taking time to comment! I've had plenty of great feedback on this project so far - I really appreciate it.

(Notes are only messy scribbles though). It's just useful sometimes to see a printed version along the way, helps you catch things you otherwise might have missed.
Wow, nice. I just learned how to properly annotate lettering/typography.
The bottom T has more character, but the kerning will be tuff... I suggest some more curly body for that T, but verrry Nice wok in progress!
Cheers Ryan! I don't know if I'd call it the proper way, but whatever works though huh?!
Bart, thanks a lot for your feedback! Yep you're right, I've been spending quite a bit of time on the kerning.. it's getting there though!
Thanks Mike! You're right, it is quite sharp compared to the rest of the letters. Had a previous version with a curve like the arm of 'r' but it didn't work as well - might try something more subtle. Cheers!
