Working on a logo re-design for a website centered around motion design tutorials. It needed to be dynamic, friendly and inviting while also inspiring confidence and professionalism. I initially did some really quick drafts with a wide Copic marker to get the rough shapes and then drew over in pencil. Sketch is approved and I've just started vectoring, so feel free to point out any potential issues (I'll probably need to enlarge that small gap between the initial 's' stroke and its final curve).

..I like this typo!..great work!
love the double tt! looks good to be vectored!
Nice. Something about the "k" is bugging me, looks a little thin. Gotta love that "s" though. Always great seeing your process.
Indeed, the tt is wonderful! Really nice!
Really great sketch, and very elegant line and letters. For me everything is good. Maybe I would make t letter that top part a little bit higher to characterize more t letter cause it should be higher than a or m for example but if idea is to keep it low as a k, maybe okey:)
I really dislike this..because it is amazingly clean, perfect lines, beautiful type...which I struggle to do often. Love the typography, diggin' your style (as always!!) and all I'd say is open up the space a bit where the 's' curls back into itself and maybe do the same with the crossbar of the 'tt' (i'd raise it up a smidge) and maybe open up the kerning the between the r/u/n/k just to let the type breathe a bit more. Other than that....beautiful.
PS. When I glanced at this in thumbnail size, I thought it said 'math stinks' :D
You man it look soooo easy!
It could use some computer stretching and adjusting. But as a sketch it's awesome.
@Nick, I have a theory on that. I suspect there is a series of 'Claire Clo(ullo)nes" (see what I did there?) which do all the work, while the REAL @Claire sits on a beach sipping ice-cold beverages.
Claire this is flat out awesome. I am in love with that 'r'. Can't wait to see what comes next.
I'm always amazed at how much character and distinct personalities your script logos have.
This is great! Is it related at all to Pixelcamp? (Both tutorial-related sites). I love the "r" and the "s". Everything is so smooth! The "nks" looks a bit tight but of course you'll go over everything carefully when vectoring it.
@Nikita I don't know about clones, but I know there are quite a few wannabes!
I really like the "m" by itself - it makes the whole thing look masculine. Do you think the gap in the flick of the "a" is a tad bit too much? Same with the first "t". Everything just looks so beautiful, especially the letters "r" and "s". I also particularly like the crossbar of the two t's. Have fun with your night of replying to drooling people ;).
@Tobia Thanks a lot!
@Neil I always struggle with 't' crossbars, glad to hear this one works. Thanks very much!
@Dan Cheers for the feedback, much appreciated. Yea you're right about the 'k', it is quite thin especially compared to the 'n' next to it. Will make sure to fix that, thank you!
@Maarten Thanks, good to hear!
Ive heard claire does all her sketches blindfolded and left handed
@Forsuregraphic Thank you for the great comment! For the 't', I definitely agree that they need adjusting as their crossbar is too close to the top. I do want to keep it no taller than the 'k' though as 't's are typically shorter anyway. Thanks again for the help!
@Nikita Haha, I wish I was sitting on a beach while my clones did all the work (one day..) I still can't believe the puns you come up with, they're terribly awesome. On a more serious note (boo, I know) fantastic points, thank you very much for the advice. Hadn't spotted that about the spacing but looking at it again, that part could definitely do with a little more room. Thanks again! (Oh and yes math stinks too).
@Nick Haha cheers, same right back to you!
@Isaac You know, you're right it does look quite condensed. It looks a bit more balanced when from a flat angle, but I'll make sure to keep an eye out for that. Thanks a lot!
I agree about the gap in the s, also agree with @Dan about the k, I think the stem could be a tad bit thicker and the space between the n and k a tad bit wider, but knowing you, when this goes to vector you will fix that up, can't wait to see the vector of this!! :)
@Bob Thanks a lot, I'm really pleased to hear that as 'r's can be kind of a pain.
@Taylor That means a lot, it can be tough to avoid falling back into what you know you can do and to make sure things stay different. Thank you very much!
@Joseph Ha, I hadn't noticed the similarity in subject, you're evidently more observant than me ;) But no, different project (this one is based in France). Thanks a lot for the really nice comment, glad you like it!
@Christopher Ah, I'm SO glad you said that about the 'm', as I forgot to mention it will need to work by itself as the icon. For the 'a', I'm not entirely sure it'll work either, I might need to get rid of that bit – will test out how it looks at different sizes and go from there. Haha thanks by the way, I'm useless at replying in a logical way. Looks like I need 50+ emails to do so.. ;)
@Neil Hahah I wish. They did try to make us do that in art school and it was always a total disaster.
@Faheema Thanks very much for the feedback! I completely agree about the 'k', I hadn't noticed how thin the stem was compared to say, the 'u'. Ha, yes no doubt I'll spend hours moving everything around 0.1 point in various directions ;) Thanks again!
@Joseph, haven't you heard that imitation is the greatest form of flattery? ;)
@Neil Hey, I'm left-handed! ;)
@Nikita You're just saying that because I stole your to do list idea ;)
@Christopher You weirdo
Hehe Mattrunks did call you for his logo redesign. Nice choice^^ Good job Claire as usual.
