been working on a logo for myself over the past few weeks due to seeing my CT monogram popping up in what seems to be everywhere nowadays. i've seen blatant rips all the way to subtle similarities. so, instead of making a huge fuss about it, i've decided to create a steal proof hand lettered logotype for myself. perhaps this is a new chapter in my life and for my design career...we shall see.
yes i will still be using my monogram
yes there is a 'C' within the crossbar of the 'T'
yes i went with the classic mechanical pencil overtop sketch shot...sue me
about 1 year ago
love those"one touch" sketches :)
@Colin Tierney nice typography ++
@Colin Tierney Love it!
It's awesome how it seems straight to make and beautiful at the same time...outstanding, my Master :)
Nice start. You don't use a tablet for making typopography ? Prefer hand writing on paper?
Sick! Love the it!
thanks for all the comments! @forsuregraphic i actually used several different brush pens with this one. my whole office is covered with 'tierney' sketches. once i find one that i like, i trace over it, scan it in (or take a picture with my iphone), call upon @Claire Coullon for some advice and use the old fashioned pen tool.
Man, that looks sweet. It's gonna be a knockout once you get it into Illustrator.
heh, i know that feeling when bunch of papers are filled by many sketches;)
I love it!
Aw that's great, Colin!
This looks awesome, great work!
Lovely letters man, great touch with that subtle C!!!
beauty. and your process is right on. don't change.
well, i mean, change is good and all, but you know what i'm saying.
The C/T and Y/dot is what I love most!
^Like Sean said, that 'y' overhead swash connecting the 'i' dot is bloody brilliant mate.
Not gonna lie but on first glance, I read "honey" lol
Nice solution for the 'C/T', and great flow overall. Have you tried a version with the 'C' extending below the baseline? Thinking that might do well to balance out the loop on your 'y'...
thanks again for the feedback all. @Joonbug seriously? not seeing an 'h' or an 'o' anywhere. @Michael Spitz thanks man, that's a good suggestion and perhaps a nice solution to balancing the overall look, but this is pretty much good to go now.
Ha yeah man idk why..but it was before I even clicked it. I knew what it said though. :)
flow really good Colin well done
Great lookin Colin! i'd give @Michael Spitz suggestion a try nonetheless :); who know maybe you will fall for it.
You did a great job rebranding yourself mate, Cheers!
very lovely :)
