    I decided I wanted to get a little more grubby with the tools today with this lettering project. Normally I push paths from smaller sketches (see top of shot in the middle), rather then trying to refine my curves with tracing paper at a larger scale.

    This is a WIP so i'm happy to hear feedback.

    Thanks @Stephen Grace! I thought about doing the split screen then saw this as an option. Glad you like.

    very nice Matt, maybe it's just me but the g seems a tad too slanted :)

    Looks pretty slick... only thing id say is the s and the t are looking a little bit like the pinterest logo.. decent work none the less though!

    Really digging the mix of cursive and non-cursive.

    This is great, Matt! Could the L be slightly larger for a better sense of balance with the other letters?

    @Florin Capota cheers mate. yeah, there's something about the G that needs tweaking. I'll look at the angles.

    @Nick Pilling thanks also. Yeah, it's the same ligature. The type is designed completely different though.

    @Jeff Jenkins thanks mate.

    @Kevin Burr thanks buddy, I'll take a look at that also. good suggestion.

    Beautiful, I really like this one. It feels quite subtle and understated with lots of stunning details like the curvature in the right 'n' stroke and the stroke contrast in the 'i' stem. That 'g' has a brilliant shape, too.

    While I like that the 'L' doesn't stand out too much over the lowercase, I think @Kevin has a good point, it does look a little small especially when you compare it to the 'g' at the end. Perhaps try just making the lower loop a little wider and/or the stem slightly taller (just don't touch that long curve that forms the upper loop though! It's awesome).

    Nice to here from you @Claire Coullon - I can only assume your absence has been a result of working double-time on some wonderful projects? I took on board the comments from @Kevin Burr & @Florin Capota and presented it to the client last week (clients words: touchdown!). You can check it here. http://www.behance.net/gallery/Listening-Partnership/6314889 I hope I didn't muck the stem of that "L" now ;)

    You would think, but I'm mostly just not sure where my time is going. Final looks awesome! .. except the ruined 'L'. Just kidding obviously, it kept exactly the the curve I liked and works beautifully. As always, such a comprehensive presentation too. Hope you have a good end of the week (on holiday soon?) and take care!

    I know the feeling @Claire. I just signed my Christmas away to work on a project over the break. Definitely next year I plan on taking a few weeks off though. Been a very busy two years without a holiday. It's a good thing I enjoy what I do, otherwise i'd be going mad!

    Ouch, yeah no kidding! Hope you get to have a good couple of days though. I'm taking my first "official" holiday in 2 years as well, not sure I'll know what to do with myself. All the best with the project! (Hopefully it's a good one too).

    @Claire Coullon Yeah, It's for my first client from Russia. Will see if I can post a work in progress shot. It's a lettering assignment, so happy days.
