    Part of a new label design for the CXXVI flagship woven, the Original Stevedore. This one is way cooler than I can even show yet, this is just a small piece.

    I was initially caught on the 'S' but the 'teve' combo registered it properly after a second. I love it as-is, especially the surprising small caps 'E's.

    Did you start out with a particular typeface and modify it, or some other process? How did you arrive at this design? LOVE it. Fantastic work. :)

    @Jen Willett Nope, just something I whipped up! My idea was to have it match an awkward design aesthetic of early 1900s newspaper ad branding. A lot of times you'll see characters written almost in an old style (for example the uppercase S which dates back well over 150 years with a root in traditional Germanic script) and a mix and match of stylistic small cap Es tossed in.

    There was a time when creative lettering had nothing else to reference but old Germanic and Latin styles, and it ended up looking like this kind of thing. That's what I was trying to accomplish here.
