    Explorations on a combined identity for Ken Ring (Rapper) & Tommy Tee (Producer).

    One typographic option and one badge/stamp.

    They're quite different in style, but I'm hoping they can co-exist for multiple purposes.

    Feedback & input is more than welcome... Good or bad, bring it on.

    Thanks in advance.

    Love the second treatment that is letterform only. The text in the circle is tougher to read at normal screen viewing distance because of how tall its x-height is, in addition to the curve it is on.

    Great combination of faders & microphone! Love this!
    You may use this concept of faders on the long bars of the T.
    By the way, I really enjoy reading your tags!!

    Ahahah I had almost missed your tags (thanks to @Jean for pointing them out), love it!

    Really interesting approach on this one (and thanks for the attachment, I can never think as well with moving gifs!). Personally, I really like the combination of styles. It feels like it would give you many more possibilities in terms of wider branding and it's very visually compelling.

    In the typographic piece, I'd suggest extending the left side of the 'T' crossbars a tiny bit more as they feel a little abrupt. For the stamp/badge, I like the condensed typeface (assuming it wouldn't have to be read at very small sizes) but the typesetting of the lower line is throwing me off a little. I think it might be the 'uppercase' letters.. I wonder if it would work to have them (and the 2) all the same height and use just the word spacing to make sure it's easy to read.

    Great illustration of the elements in the stamp one, @Claire Coullon gave a great suggestion for the bottom line, i feel that a bit bolder type could be used since all the lines there are very thick.
    Also i like the second on a lot too, it's a very interesting combination and I could say original, what is the story behind your thinking of using both, since usually one would go for just one of them

    @matt - Cheers bud.

    @Claire - Thank you for all the great feedback, my friend. Extending the crossbars is actually something I never even considered. Will definitely try that out. I'm always weary when messing around with another designer's typeface, so I tried not to tamper with it too much. But it makes perfect sense! Should look better for sure.

    As for the emblem. Yes, I used the 'uppercase' to improve readability. But I've changed it now to all 'lowercaps' (think that's the term). Looks better, although I had to ad one more phrase to it. Thanks!

    @Florin - It's actually sort of a emblem/logo for a upcoming album. Emblems aren't too flexible and don't scale too well, so that's why I made a typographic option, without the album title. It's hard to explain the idea around it until it's put into context for the concept I have in mind, but you'll see soon :) Cheers!

  17. Final logo/emblem for Ken Ring (Rapper) & Tommy Tee (Producer).

    They will be releasing a new single on the 30th of November, which will be followed by a best of compilation, before their second full length album as a duo will drop early next year.
