A quick trace from paper of a logotype I'm working on. See the attached pencil version of this wordmark, which was traced from the initial sketch I made with a black bullet tip BIC Permanent Marker (Ref. 2000).
The typography clearly needs some curve adjustments in the next round. The lowercase x & e need to be lowered a bit as well as the bottom part of the lowercase e that needs some extra weight to keep the remaining white-space consistent. Furthermore there's this weird dent in the right curve of the lowercase O and the little curl of the uppercase P that also needs to be fixed. I didn't pay too much attention to the word 'design' which actually was (as Bob Ewing rightfully mentioned) just placed in there ;))
The reason I posted this early concept is because I liked the freeform rhythm & flow of this particular version. As some of you know I tend to have a knack for Bézier tweaking, so I obviously save the best bite for last ;)
I welcome any improvements you may see.

Flow's looking great, though man!
Love that font!
Love it man.
Love the freedom!
Oh Shit.......10x the awesome then!!!!
That looks great. Want to make an ampersand in that style for a tattoo?
Jonathan - sure mate.
This looks awesome Gert. I know you said it is an early sketch, but the word design just looks placed in there. Maybe there is a way to work it more into the shape underneath.
awesome flow man,i dig it a lot
Hey Bob, you're perfectly right. The additional typography was just placed in there. To be honest I have yet paid much attention to it. Good suggestion, thanks.
Wonderful Gert! Wonderful!!!
awesome flow of the logo. Great!
curvy and sexy!
wow ... really great piece of art ... like !!
Like, like, like!!!
FUN! nice one Gert.
This is fantastic!!! Goin' in a bucket!
This looks terrific, it's so eye-catching. I like how the 'P' overlaps the 'i' (love the pencil version without the 'i' dot too, although of course might be harder to read). I also really like the narrower version of the 'P' stem in the initial sketch, it looks bold & simple and very recognizable as a 'P'. Anyway, looking forward to the development!
That would be awesome. I have been looking for an ampersand for some new ink. I will be more than happy to reimburse you for your time and effort. I have been trying to sketch one out, but can't seem to get the look and feel that i want...
@Claire - some valuable feedback from you I was actually hoping for, thanks a bunch! I shall take them all into account, thanks! ;)
P.s. thanks for all your comments and faves! To be honest I didn't expect this lettering being too much popular, but I will catch up with all of you tonight! Thanks!
This is gorgeous.
