Logo for Graphicsdiva — new personal identity
I always have such an easier time designing for everyone else, but myself. Thus, this one was actually more of a personal challenge, as I kept tinkering and scrapping sketches constantly. I knew I wanted a custom typographic wordmark that would represent "graphicsdiva" but with a very specific tone, message and personality.
The nature of "graphicsdiva" is to embody confidence and pride—versus arrogance or pompous tone, so it was important for the final identity to be bold and strong, yet understated and approachable.
I was interested in the script direction which evokes a soft, feminine and sophisticated, classic feeling—but yet reversing it out on heavier black gives it a slightly darker and edgier intensity. Keeping the wordmark all together on one elongated line was an odd fit for the space and most applications—so I ended up splitting the name into two lines. The extra terminal of the "a" allows for a nice underline of the "diva" to help subtly reinforce that element of the brand.
(I am additionally creating these as stamps for printed collateral.)
All types of feedback highly appreciated!

Great typography. Why doesn't this shot have 100 likes?
Looks great. You may have issues with it at small sizes but who gives a shit!
Nice one, man. Really sweet type and composition! Welcome! :)
Thank you for the positive and supportive comments @Matt Warren @Shane Wilson @Breno Bitencourt @arnauddec :) Thanks for the note too, Shane..I have the reverse-out of the wordmark in black + sans the blk circle, and it helps a bit for things like photo watermarking and placement on B+W form items like faxes, etc.
