Colors used are just to show examples of what color *might* look like. Once the client makes a final decision, I'll do a more in depth color study.
Please see original sketch shot for detailed information about the company, their motives & wishes, and my rationale. Check the attachment for my inspiration, sketches, and additional shots of the vectorized logo.
FWIW, the client (a Prospect here on Dribbble) has already seen these, and has mostly made up their minds about which option they wish to finalize, but they were very interested in seeing what you fine lot have to say before pulling the trigger.
So...please hit me with your thoughts, ideas, critiques.

Man, please don't take it personally ... I love your work, as you may already know ... but I couldn't imagine to see this style a second time in my life ... when I was a little boy I saw this Beatles Yellow Submarine type for the first time ... and now it's back ...
As a creative guy I'm always looking for something new ... But now I'm starting to believe that all the stories already have been told ... What more can I say ... Apart from the time jump, you're one of the most respected designers of me ... ;DD
Nice logo, flows really nicely!
@TAS Sorry for the misunderstanding. Chalk it up to the language barrier. It's all good, and I get what you're saying now. Thanks for clarifying.
I don't dislike it ... man ... I'm talking in a language that Isn't mine ... I'm full of respect for your extraordinary talent ... it has nothing to do with you ... it's only me ... believe me ... in twenty years, when you'll have my age ... I'm sure you'll understand what I was talking about ... I bet it'll happen to you too ... most of all because you are that ingenious guy you are ... You are going to realize that one life is not sufficient to see always new design ...
I should have set up this basket for a long time ... I see designs and also fashion or music that I've heard or seen years ago ...
As I said ... It wasn't my intention to offend you ... because I love all you do ... I only had some reflections about my short/long lifetime as a designer ... maybe we should use the german language to avoid these misunderstandings ... ;) ... again sorry for that ... but I LOVE YOUR WORK !!
Look at those silky smooth curves. Can't fault your curve work here Jon. You were right also about the swoosh comment I made. It didn't even cross my mind when I saw this vectored. I really like the little loops at the end of the first and last letter.
really nice, jon. lovin' these *almost locked up* variations. the only thing that is bothering me slightly here is the 'a' and where the bowl is finishing off. i think your thins are getting a little too thin here. i would even consider making the 'e's a tad thicker as well.
@Matt Vergotis Man, I TOILED over those curves. This was much easier to draw in pencil than it was to recreate with bezier curves. This one, by far, was the most lengthy vectorizing session of the three designs. Thanks for taking a peep!
@Colin Tierney Thanks for the feedback, homie. You know I went back and forth with a few of these letters, and that at one point, all the end strokes on all but the L had ball terminals.
Well, after I had tweaked those end curves for hours so that the ball terminals made sense — meaning creating more spiral-like finishes so that the ball terminals didn't look just plopped on — I sat with it for a bit and the wondered what it would look like with just ball terminals on the T's, as it is now. When I looked at that, I was like, "WAITAMINNIT, there's something more here."
Because at that point, there was more "wave-like" motion in those curves.
Now I totally see what you're saying, and now that I'm looking at the E's and A, I can definitely see how those spirals are getting thin. If this option is one my client wants to explore further, I'll definitely address this. Thanks, man.
love this too. Can i have one suggestion, maybe the negative space of a can be slightly blend as a tea leaf shape?
@Gary Chew Thanks for your feedback, Gary! Hmm...interesting suggestion. You know, if the client wants to pursue this direction, I may just consider that. Cheers!
