That "D", I'm not sure if I love it or hate it.
Will you love it if I tell you it's conceptual?
meh, not in love with it. I tend to like marks with a more even balance. Why not make the d on the same line as the T? which would connect the top of the D to the top of the T.
@Leighton Pustejovsky I gave it a shot but it doesn't have the same effect. http://j.mp/RbaAhe I think it lacks the gestalt that is present in this version. It feels pretty balanced to me the way it is; the only spot I'm not sure about is the negative space that's created where the line ends inside the D.
Would it be too much to ask for the end of the bowl of the J to either line up with the inside edge of the right side of the T stem OR to match the angle that the line of the D ends at? Also, why not just TD? Just curious.
@Mallory Box I like the idea of matching the angle, but I couldn't get it to look right. I lined up the bowl of the J with the T though and I think it works. http://j.mp/VKxFNB It kind of tames the J a bit which is nice.
Oh, and I just thought the J worked well here. Does this mean I have to start going by Taylor J. Dolan if I use it?
This is pretty awesome. I'd close the inside of the D to see what it looks like, but the balance is great. Has a bit of a 1920s-style feel too.
@Taylor Dolan Nice! Love it. And no.. I was thinking more just "TJ Dolan". And then you can become a dj and be named "DJ TJ".
@Taylor Dolan yeah it doesn't have that nice open feel to it like the original one. Whatever you end up with will look good because this is already nice.
@Mallory Box That is solid gold. Why did it take 22 years for that idea to happen?
@Kyle Barrett @Leighton Pustejovsky Thanks folks!
Look at you guys and your classmate dialogue. Cute.
