    I would like to invite everyone to get involved with my canals project!

    Hopefully some of you would like to contribute to this!

    If you haven't seen any of my other shots, i'm basically branding the canals in England. ( You don't have to be from England to contribute! ) Just remember that these babies are old, so the logo should portray this!

    What do i need from you?
    1. Choose a canal from the list below.
    2. Design a logo for it. ( old style, single colour )
    3. Rebound the said logo to this shot. (show it how you like!)
    4. Email me a vector. ( hello@ollysorsby.co.uk )

    You can find the list of canals here.

    Obviously you will be credited, which i will sort out when they are all completed and i produce some sort of online archive.

    I look forward to seeing your contributions!

  12. This is my contribution to Olly's canal branding project.

    I grew up in Stourbridge in the Black Country so named because of it's huge part in the industrial revolution. An American writer Elihu Burritt visited the area in 1862 and because of constant fire of the furnaces and smoke from the chimneys he described it as "black by day and red by night".

    A major landmark on the canal is the Red House Cone, part of the famous glass works.

    I hadn't thought about it in a while but while doing this I remembered I've had a lot of memories round the canal. My mum and I walked the dogs down there on a sunday, I used to meet me first proper girlfriend by a bench along the canal and my best friend got married in a converted warehouse beside it. So thanks Olly for getting me involved and down memory lane!

  13. Thought I'd have a crack at @Olly Sorsby's canal project.
    My Dad is canal boat mad so couldn't resist...

    The image is of Foxton Locks, a crazy staircase of locks on the Grand Union.

  14. Loving where this project by @Olly Sorsby was going so I thought I'd throw up a rebound of my own. This specific canal had a pretty cool story connected to it. Enjoy. Rebound!

  20. Here is my addition to this fun Canal Branding playoff by @Olly Sorsby Hope y'all dig it. I am not from England, nor have I ever been there (love to visit someday) so I had to do a bit of research on this canal. I chose it 'cause I thought it had a cool name and I loved the start date (1826) which makes sense if you know my handle. Anyway fun exercise & as always comments & feedback most welcome. Just hop on board and pick out a canal & add to the mix!!

  25. My buddy Olly asked if I would make a contribution to this awesome playoff. So I did and this is one of the pieces I made. Please, check out the others that we're made by some rad designers. And make some rad logos for fun.
