Long name, sweet type.

Lovely Simon. I think I prefer the bottom option, if only because the swashes in "Of Canada" are so perfectly done.
Have you tried making the M normal cap height, and connecting the horizontal strokes of the two T's?
Wow, the 'of' in the bottom option is mind-bogglingly beautiful. Really impressive. I love what you've done with 'Automotive', the positioning/size of the 'o's is totally making me think of wheels too. The spacing of that word feels a little strange (U-T is quite wide compared to a much tighter T-I) but aside from that, gorgeous.
Trevor: that felt a bit too connecty for this, and lost visual weight in the middle.
Claire: funny you should say that, because they were actual wheels for a while, but I opted away from it in the end.
Yeah, the tall M is actually a perfect solution for that. Carry on!
This is beautiful Simon, definitely the bottom option. I think it really connects the top and bottom of the logo. The bottom also seems to just fit together better and the 'of Canada' is absolutely amazing.
I like this because Canada.
the "t-o" and "o-t" in automotive are very original and I'm digging it. looks great.
The bottom version has nice visual distinction and separation between the main type and the of Canada bit. Nice work with the 'to' combinations, too.
Thanks guys. It's probably worth mentioning that this is an older project and that neither version made the cut as is.
sweet man. you're type skills continue to kill it.
Thanks Jose! We need to get the lads together at Jo's again soon.
The "TOMOT" reminds me of a front view of a car kind of like this .
Both look amazing, although I am preferring the second.
How did those damn georgians make it up to Canada?
went and checked out the final version, although I do like it, i prefer either of these more for sure.
Wow. Great balance. Way to (visually) simplify a very long name :)
Great type! I get a really raw feeling out of this, which seems suiting for what it is.
Love this. SO nice! The symmetry of the "TOMOT" is great.
I completely agree with Thomas! The symmetry ... or I guess balance of this piece is so great. Also, I love how "Georgian" is so different, yet flows so nicely with the other elements!
Love the symmetry and the way it emulates the front grill of a car, but subtly.
Great work, love it. I like the top option better, if only because I read "Estd. of Canada 1964". I'm weird like that, I can't read badge logos (with a center word and then a top-bottom phrase) correctly either.
Would love to know how you did the texture on the type, you got it just right.
