Rejected custom type for a country trio (2 gals and 1 dude) who wanted a Fleetwood Mac-esque treatment. I liked this option, but I'm sure a true typographer would scoff at my bezier curves.

Open to any criticism on ye olde curves too. Hard to not make them look lumpy.
I DID MY BEST. I'M SORRY, DAD.
Try harder next time son.
This is stunning. Fuck that.
Matt, this is solid.
I think it's nice. The swash near the apostrophe complicates it a bit. I would play with making the serifs and swashes thinner, too, for more contrast. It's fun playing with type!
You're hilarious. This looks awesome. A few things that stick out to me: The loop on the bottom of the G seems it should go as far down as the swash on the left E. The bottom of the S could use some love. I'd match it to a perfect circle all the way around. Otherwise you did well. Dad would be proud.
Really nice Matt :)
Why did they reject this fine piece of lettering? :(
Their loss. This has some serious good vibes.
Agreed w/ all the comments. Custom type like that is hard, hard stuff. Their loss--this is nice work.
Thanks for the comments, everyone! I'm fully aware that this still needs work... far from smooth. I think if the client had picked it, I would've tightened it up.
There's an element of dribbble that's vulnerable and exposing... especially when you request feedback. Just trying to get out of my comfort zone and push myself in areas that aren't' as strong for me. It's funny how the familiar becomes a crutch. Gotta keep pushing / growing.
Uh-oh. I've revealed too much!
too bad they were so narrow-minded to see such potential in this... i love that you pushed yourself to do something a little different. you still nailed it in my opinion & i would've loved to see how the final might have turned out. if this was your starting point, then imagine the final would be fantastic.
good try, sport. i would have thought maybe apostrophe a little higher, but, i'm sure you tried that.
