2 of the 4 final variants for the Class Atlas logo-type. Thanks to all the fantastic suggestions on the previous shot! I fixed up the spacing, the shape of the double 's', re-drew the connection between both words and made an alternate 'C-l' connection.
The type will also exist alongside the mark designed by @Michael Spitz.

@Neil Hahaha most relevant comment ever.
by Michael Spitz
I'm very pleased to present the results of the my first collaborative identity effort with the extremely talented @Claire Coullon. Can't tell you guys how happy I am to finally see our work side by side.
Be sure to check out Claire's portfolio post for background on the type process, and those ridiculous sketches I can't get enough of!
*Finalized version of the logo ATTACHED.
Thanks so much to everyone for your enthusiasm throughout the project thus far! Extended identity to follow...stay tuned!

I think that bottom one will be a huge fave among many. I love the alternate option you made with the upper case C and the s and A connection, glad to see you included it. I love the way you refine things by 0.1, it may be a subtle change but it surely makes a big difference. Beautiful! Those icons by @Michael Spitz are truly great and works nicely alongside your lettering.
Beautiful as always Claire! I think I'm feeling the top one the most!
Damn. The final version looks phenomenal along with that icon and drop-shadow. As you know, I really like the unconnected version the best. I kind of hate that you flush all these lettering pieces out and I'm still procrastinating on my first one. Ha.
Wow… I think you nailed a modern take on an almost nautical script. The bottom is my personal preference but something tells me the top will work better with the mark. Top notch.
Pure class, Claire. It's good to see your collabo with Michael.
Couldn't have asked for a better partner in crime! ;) The first of many I hope..!
Congrats, Claire! Just beautiful, and it looks great with the mark. And I always enjoy reading your project write-ups :)
I really love the bottom version, but I think you know why. ;)
But seriously (really?), I think the flow of the letters and words is much nicer when they are connected, even if it's only via the two swashes intertwining.
The 'Atl' is great. Just overall, a very nice rhythm and balance in the whole piece, especially in the bottom one.
Dynamic duo. Wow, just wow. Congratulations on a masterpiece.
@Faheema It was surprisingly difficult to pick between the variations, neither I nor the client managed! Ah yes I'm all for minor refinements, very glad you approve. Thanks very much for the kind words! (and on Twitter too).
@James Thanks a lot! Yea I do have a soft spot for that original 'C' as well, glad you like it!
@Christopher All credit goes to @Michael for the treatment and I agree, it works really well. Haha hate away (all will be forgiven in the end) and you know me, if I didn't have deadlines, nothing would get done..
@Matt It's great to hear that, thank you! That was exactly the intended look and it was a little tricky to work out, so glad it works. Cheers!
@Milosz Thanks! It kind of makes up for tonight's result, right?.. Except not really :( Ha.
@Michael Likewise! Next time, we'll be even more organised, right?!
@Jeff Happy to hear that as they always take a while to write, thank you!
@Nikita Yeah some random suggested the 'C-l' idea.. But seriously (I know..!) thank you very much for all the help and suggestions on this one, your comments were really useful and very much appreciated.
@Sean That's such a nice comment, thank you! Yeah, tt was fantastic to be able to work with Michael on this one, totally brings in a new depth to my side of the project.
Oh mah gawd! That is a freakin' insane collaboration guys! What a match.
Just great harmony between the mark and the type!
Final version of the type from Claire gives that feel of something of old map making with that adventurous touch. And that mark...
...ok, I'm starting to sound over-pretentious here.
Conclussion: F you guys making the rest of us look like bums, raising the bar this high.
Hahah @Emir, over-pretentious is not possible, thanks very much! Honestly it don't know what it would take to make you look like a bum, but thanks all the same! I'm really glad to hear you get that from the lettering too, exactly what we were going for.
Gorgeous @Claire, as usual. The bottom one was definitely the more intricate mark. Lovely.
So good. That's all I got. Amazing.
so elegant. I really love this claire and what a situation having to choose one when both look amazing. If i'm forced to make a decision though, then I would choose the top one. The separation makes it easier to break down at first glance. Both words on their own look gorgeous and compliment each other beautifully, so I'm favouring this version. Whilst I love the CL ligature in the the bottom version, I prefer the way the S finishes on top version. I was about to suggest doing that to the top version but i've just gone through and seen the final composition on your website. JACKPOT! congrats to you claire & @Michael Spitz what a wonderful finished result.
I like how the script flows and I like how you opened up each letter a bit more and worked with the negative space compared to what I saw in 'Script progress' shot. I love how the 'C' connects with the 'l' in the second version. Good work @Claire
Gorgeous. The dream team! (:
@kirk Thank you! Just realised I had a reply to your email open for the last 3 hours without sending it.. Just fixed that! Glad you like it, cheers for the nice support.
@Brendan Ha, that works – thanks very much!
@Brad It's great to hear that, thanks a lot.
@Matt Vergotis Thank you very much for such thoughtful feedback, I really appreciate it! Ha yes, I know what you mean re. choosing and I agree about the top 's' flourish. In any case, the benefit of no choices is that you can keep as many variations as you want! Haha glad you approve of the final composition too. Thanks again for the kind words!]
@Freedom Art Inc. Thanks Jose! Yes, I agree it was definitely worth re-working the counter spaces in the 's's in particular, glad you like it!
@Terra Thank you! I hope all your lettering practice is coming along well by the way and that everything is good on your end!
Looks great Claire!!! Has plently both contrasting & complimentary features besides @Michael Spitz mark!!!
That's fantastic to hear, thank you @Josh!
