We went through a process of sketching around 80 rough logo concepts. We digitized around 10 of them and created another 40 variations and further concepts.

Source Serif is an amazing typeface, but a few small details were bothering me and I wanted the wordmark to be unique. I made the top of the t more stylish, increased the roundness on the ends of the a and the y and changed the bottom of the l's.
Tally already worked with a talented illustrator who did some awesome illustrations. Tally recently launched their 2.0 and I think they did a great job, you can read more about the rebrand and new version on their blog.
