This is just a feast for the eyes, really. All of the tweaks you've made have really pulled it all together, and it flows beautifully. That 'M' is awesome too, and has so much character it could easily be used as an icon itself.
I like the height variation of the letters, personally. Keeps it casual and still referencing the original handwriting, and your work is so refined that I think it pulls off such a style wonderfully.
Really looking forward to seeing it launched!

Even without the Curved Swirly-Wirl™, this turned out great, Claire. Very classy.
Btw, I just noticed you're not a Pro member. Why this rebellion?!
Wowza sista, this is sick. Love it. Double 'T's are a pain in the ass but you made this look gorgeous. Great work.
wonderful claire, the stems of the 'u' was something that i really liked about the original, so i'm glad you left them like that. The relationship with the 't' cross bar and the 'a' stem is such a nice and comfortable fit. Just a lovely bit of lettering. well done!
now if i could only see your notes, it would be a nice tutorial in lettering.
Love it!! specially the "r" and "s" !!
incredible letters Claire - great balance and legibility.. lovely 'k' 'r' and 's' not to mention the 'm' setting the tone from the very beginning.. if I may ask, because you've done a nice job of it - what is your typical process from sketch to vector? I always have mixed results and would like to find a way of translating that is much more consistent.
That 'k' looks a lot better now it's actually been digitised. Excellent work Claire!
Looks amazing, Claire! Love the "tt" and the final "s"
@Faheema Haha nothing wrong with some evil of course, but it doesn't typically say "friendly and inviting" ;) Thanks very much for the feedback! Yea, I completely agree for that 's' gap, I had enlarged quite a bit already but it still looks too close.
@Anna Thank you very much for the wonderful comment! I really love 'K's but it's so true that they need so much space and I inevitably end up struggling with them. It's been hard resisting tweaking/matching everything too much, particularly with the 'm', so I'm really glad to hear you like it. Ah yes the squinting trick, bound to make you look crazy but it totally works. Well noticed for the 'r', thank you! Oh and @Faheema too: no digital HA, I struggle with both of those letters as well and yep especially when they're connected. Fooled you both there :D
@Bastien Merci beaucoup et contente que ça t'y fait penser ! En effet, c'est vraiment sympa de pouvoir montrer les étapes. A très bientôt pour le launch !
@Joseph You always give you really useful feedback, thank you! Good eye for the 'a', there is a small shift there in the vector (and I can't remember the reason, clearly it wasn't too significant though). I'll try pointing it up a bit more, thanks very much!
@Rodrigo Thanks very much!
@Bob Thanks! I really appreciate that. I spent a while on that area between the 'a' and the crossbar (and no doubt will still spend more time on it), pleased to hear you like it!
@Nayla Thanks for the kind words! You always have really thoughtful comments, I really appreciate it. I'm particularly glad to hear that about the height variation. I've been doing quite a few things recently in somewhat stricter styles where everything has to be more consistent, so it's been hard to resist doing the same here. I agree though, it accentuates the friendly feel. Thanks very much again!
@Emir Hahah it obviously deserves a ™! I'll remember next time I draw one. You know, I just never really got round to it and I'm also worried I'd spend even more time on here if I had stats to look at… Would never get anything done! That said, I should definitely get one anyway, cheers for the reminder. Hope you've recovered ok from that 10k by the way!
@kirk Always good to hear from you, thank you! Ahh, I completely agree with you on double 't's, glad you like these ones.
@Matt Thanks a lot Matt, I really appreciate that. Yeah I played around with those 'u' stems quite a bit but nothing else was really working as well. They're a little wacky both pointing inwards like that but I quite like them too. Oh and you can just about read the notes here but not sure how helpful they are though, haha. Thanks again!
@Java Really glad you like it, thank you!
@Anthony Cheers for the really nice comment, that's great to hear. I just manually trace with the pen tool over the original sketch, but there's usually a decent amount of variation from the drawing. I test how it looks filled-in after I've done every letter to do the adjustments progressively, as it's less daunting that way!
@Dan Cheers, yea it was good to fix it! Could still do with some little adjustments, but it's definitely miles better. Thanks very much!
@Máximo Thanks a lot! The 's' is probably the one that's changed the most from the sketch, glad you like it!
Beautiful, Claire. Since everyone else has already said so incredibly much, let me just say this:
If you didn't intentionally put a #1 in the negative space between the "a" and the first "t", then you should totally tell people you did, and claim it as a subtle declaration of your supreme awesomeness.
Haha, thanks @Ryan! That's really nice of you. The first rough drafts done with a marker had a messy open 'a' bowl, which when closed, left that little stem bit that was just asking to fit next to the crossbar. Glad you like it!
the M, the R and the S are magic!
Fabulous type! Nice one Claire.
I love this wordmark. So well done!!
@ Claire - thanks for the reply - seems easy enough - I usually scan and try to livetrace and when it goes haywire like it usually does.. I either just trace with pen tool or adjust the livetrace product.. guess there isn't a super way to go about it like I hoped - definitely not for someone without patience.. thanks again
@Kishan Patel Goddess*
I dont mind the r being smaller, I think this piece has great flow
Class! - as always.
@Henric, @Chris, @Jonny, @Mike, @Gary, @Luke – Thanks very much guys, I really appreciate it!
@Anthony Hah yeah I wish there was a better way too. I hate livetrace.. Every couple of months I think, hey maybe it's not as bad as I think, but every time I remember how much I don't like it. I guess the neater/more critical you are with your sketch though, the less of a pain the vectoring will be. If you make sure to fill in the sketch and then test an inverted/reverse version in photoshop, that usually helps catch a lot of weight and spacing issues. Nothing beats patience though unfortunately!
@Andy Haha love the correction. Thanks!
@Neil Good to hear that, thank you. Yeah I was just tweaking the 'r' earlier and tested it taller, but it didn't work very well so left its height as is.
Woo@ I know this site, beautiful logo
i'm going to stare at this for a little bit longer...but for now, just know i absolutely love it.
