...annnnnnnnnnnd a color version. This doesn't have to be *the* color version, but I wanted to pitch my idea that a potential color version could look like it was written in icing. Check the attachment for full-size.

absolutely love this, jon. well done.
Thanks, bruvva! Working late tonight? Or drinking heavily?
working late...finishing up some work for some stray clients i've neglected.
however, i will be having some maker's mark on a single rock by the week's end.
Yeah, this week is putting a hurtin' on me, so I may have to indulge in more than a few Dark & Stormies while on Cape Cod this weekend. You a rum guy at all, Colin?
I'm working late but not drinking, what's wrong with me Jon?
This is really nice btw. I love the subtle pixel texture.
Joe, Frank Zappa once said, "You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer."
So put down your rapidograph for one second and guzzle some suds.
So good Jon. I'm really impressed with this. it's hard to know when to stop sometimes... for me, right now, this is bang on! well done.
Haha that's very true :)
I heard a quote one time but I can't remember who it's from. It goes like this: "It only takes me 1 drink to get drunk...I don't know if it's the 13th or 14th." Hah
to answer your question jon..no rum for me. gin in the summer, whiskey in the winter.
Thanks for the support, Matt! Yeah, I agree, sometimes it's easy to keep mucking with a design. Sometimes it's necessary (like when you're fixing sloppy bezier curves, and you just sit there tweaking for hours until your eyeballs melt right out of your eyeholes), other times it's...I don't even know what it is. Designer-masochism?
Joe, here's another good one:
"Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer." - Arnold Schwarzenegger, 1975.
You know I love this Jon, but that inner curve on the first bend in the swirl above 'Bakery' is bugging me. I hope you know where I mean. Other than that, this is one of your best work imo. And thats the 'toof'! ; ) Oh and the sign writer is gonna love you ; )
This really amazing the feel the texture awesome job... Inspiring
Just a quick interruption to your intellectual debate on beer quotations. ;-)
Jon, this is incredible. The shading is spot-on.
Go to bed Jon, this logo is almost there, great job so far.
Nailed it Jon!! Love the subtle shading touches!
@Simon Ålander, glad you like it. I'm really curious about how type designers respond to this, since I only dabble in type design, and am, by no means, an expert.
@Colin, have you tried Death's Door gin? Saw it at Wine Source over the summer, and it immediately caught my eye due to its awesome designery packaging. Haven't tried it, though. I do love me a good G&T with 2 limes.
@Norman, I *think* I know what you're talking about. Do you mean that curve coming directly off the F that transitions from a downward curve to an upward curve? If that's what you mean, man, I tweaked that little mutha endlessly. If it's optically disruptive, I'll need to work on that before handing over my finals (if this direction gets chosen). At any rate, can you screen grab the full-size attachment, circle the problematic area, and email it to me?
@Saura, thanks so much for the kind words!
@Simon (T-800-M), I appreciate the wonderful comment, man. I went old-school on this shading. After tweaking the letterforms to my liking, I printed the logo out at large size in black, then went to my trusty light table, and drew in the shading on an overlay. Then I scanned the shaded areas, placed this image as a template in Illustrator, then and retraced with bezier curves in Illustrator.
@Rudy, thanks! Any suggestions for getting it "there"?
@Jared, thanks for the nice comment! I appreciate you checking this out.
I didn't know you were here, man, great to see you and great work!
Likewise! Yeah, I arrived a few months ago, but I haven't been super active due to the holidaze, work, life, alien abductions, etc.
Quite a fine job!
Sweet "sweet"... (complete sentence).
Vitaly, Sean, Jovan, thanks so much for checking this out! I appreciate all the warm comments.
