Found out a great band called dry the river were having a Tshirt design comp about an hour before it ended so I made a quick typography design. Due to the short deadline I only had time to make a flat design but I have since worked on it in Ai and Ps for more style, really wish I could have submitted this instead. Larger view attached.

And you call that "quick typography", this is lovely
@lucas marinm Ha ha yeah, I surprised myself with this one. I'm not normally know for quick work, I normally spend hours on minor details. I might start setting tasks like this with short deadlines to practice getting quicker.
ah yeah it seems to be a pretty good exercice ;)
@Chris Beaumont love the grainy shadowing on the overlaps. How did you go about doing that? In Illustrator?
@John Peele I 1st found out how to do it by following this tutorial. I've changed the way I do it since then with lots of experimentation but it's still the same basics. Hope that helps
This is great man!
@Ben Bate Cheers man, I was working on a piece like this before I started this one so hopefully that will be as good.
That 'D-r' is such a good idea, I really love it. Reads without any problems at all and is just the right amount of distinctive without detracting from the lettering as a whole. "The" works nicely in the middle too.
Just to add to the earlier comments, I'm also impressed at how fast you did this. What you mentioned about setting tasks with short deadlines is a really good idea.
Cheers @Claire Coullon I always look forward to hearing your opinions on my work. Another piece I'm working on has a very similar D and I thought it would work here. I think I could have improved the v a bit and found a better way to place the i, it looks quite confined there. Glad you like it though.
The 'v' is perhaps just a little sharp, but I guess it's also good practice with "quick" pieces to learn to accept that there are details you'd fix. (Not that I'm any good at that, but it's a nice aim anyway).
@Claire Coullon I never thought of it like that. I find I spend so long tweaking curves here and there sometimes that I dislike the result more than when I started. Which generally leaves me bored and uninspired to continue. I think letting some smaller things slide to allow the overall piece my full attention is the way to go. (Easier said though).
Yeah I know exactly what you mean. Setting short deadlines would be a really good exercise, as long as you really forced yourself to stick to them. Then you could still obsess over tiny details in your other projects, to keep things balanced. (Tempted to try that myself now too, but I'm the slowest vector-er).
