Graceful Lettering

    Logo lettering concept for Graceful apps.

    Wanted to make an elegant, but a joyful loose hand-lettering style at the same time.

    See the attached sketches for the initial direction I took as well as the other iterations I made. Though I really like the disconnected 'f/u' ligature in the sketch, I'm not sure about legibility, so I changed things on-the-fly as well as other iterations based upon the one shown here.

    Hope you like it. Have a great weekend ahead!

    really pumping out some solid type work lately gert. this is really nice. it would have been interesting to see a vectorized version of the attached sketch...the 'efu' treatment is beautiful on that one.

    I really like where this is going, dude. What would it feel like if the "L" was opened up a bit to mimic the "G" and "F"? Those letters are flowing so well.

    @Andy I tried to achieve something like that as seen in the sketch attached, but wait... there's more on my drawing table! :))

    Wow. That's about as close to "elegant, but a joyful loose hand-lettering style" as I've ever seen. Lovely work Gert.

    Hey Gert, looks like I'm 3 months late with my comment but nevermind – beautiful work on this one. I really love the minimal stroke contrast, it works impressively well. Stunning, elegant curves on the 'G' and 'f' in particular, they really feel appropriate for the word. Have a great weekend, I hope you're doing well!
