    Logotype I've been working on recently as part of the upcoming rebrand of the Keep Calm Gallery. In an attempt to make my portfolio updates less daunting, I've tried to be more comprehensive about documenting the drawing process while doing it: top left has some early explorations and the rough draft; below is the tracing of the draft (after fixing it up in Photoshop) using an old laptop screen; top right is going over the outline properly and below that, the final scan.

    The vector is approved and I'm finalising it over the next couple of days – any suggestions for things to tweak are more than welcome.

    Full size photos and bigger vector attached.

    Hi @Milosz, it's been a while!

    @Chris Beaumont Thanks very much! Until recently it was my main computer so it's nice to be able to demote it to lightbox, haha. Hope you're doing well by the way.

    Besides the wonderful lettering work that you always seem to achieve, that green is so minty fresh and soothing it's insane.

    @Claire Coullon Ha ha I know the feeling, I used to use my main screen as a lightbox, very tense moments while tracing on it. Now got a cheap lightbox so all's good. I'm good thanks, hopefully have some new work up soon.

    I shouldn't have liked this shot as you were working on this during Sunday which is a holy day. Could it have killed you to wait 24 hours? All that effort could have been focused on something more meaningful such as the Lord.

    Thanks @Jed! Was a bit tricky with the loops, but glad it works.

    @Joe Prince I'm not very good with greens so really pleased to hear that, thank you!

    @Chris Beaumont Haha I can imagine, getting a cheap one is a good idea actually. Looking forward to seeing what you've been working on.

    Absolutely beautiful Claire! I love it...that T/H and the LL are my favorites.

    I have just one thought for you...I LOVE how the C and G move below the baseline, but the C seems to really overpower the G...if I'm not mistaken, the bowl of the G is the letter C, just a bit smaller in height, to accommodate for the tail of the G. Is there any way to make them the same? Maybe make the C a bit shorter in height and the G (the bowl part) a tiny bit larger? Or at least bring them closer together in that regard?

    That G is so beautiful. Glad you're not using a traditional uppercase G here.

    Awesome work! And I love seeing your sketches. Just can't help but wonder what it'd look like if the second l in gallery looked more like the first... Any particular reason you didn't bring the loop through the stem again there?

    @Andy Luce It's really nice to hear that from you, thanks!

    @Nikita I love your feedback (with or without red sharpie). You're right, it would definitely make more sense if they were closer in height. I did an icon variant with just the initials and had to adjust them a lot as the difference really stuck out, but didn't think to do it on the main version. Thanks very much for the idea! (Also, how dare you say something critical).

    @Jovan Hahah thanks!
    @Mary Kate McDevitt Thank you! Was really pleased to be able to work on this one.
    @Mathieu Brg ▲▼▲ Merci beaucoup, c'est trop sympa.
    @Neil Tasker That goes without saying.
