"Tudor House & Garden" logo

01 : Initial Ideas   ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I want to:

create a logo which has both text and visual element.

try some rough texture on my logo.


"Tudor House & Garden" might be a good object for me to practice, as it has a unique building which I can use to create a visual element and its histric bakground might work well with rough texture.

02 : Sketches   ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

These sketches are rough and not organized at all. I'm still exploring different ideas.

I want to include a simple visual element which captures the charm of the old building.

03 : Fonts   ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

While I was working on my skethces, I also started looking into what kinds of fonts were available out there. I found some interesting classic looking fonts which seemed appropriate for this 15th century buidling, but I'm worried about readability for some of them. Maybe I need to tweak.

04 : Design   ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Since I wanted to see how font works with my design sketches, I decided to start making things in computer. Here are my first design drafts. I'm gonna make more drafts using Illustrator.

05 : Typeface Manipulation   ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

In my designing process, I got two ideas which I think have good potentials. So now it's time for me to start tweaking fonts and see what I can do...

With this design, I tried adding some textures.

I also tried to develop two more designs ( A: Rooflilne and B: Shiled ).

A: Roofline

B: Shield

06 : Finals  ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

These fours are my final logo designs. (I wanted them to work on both light and dark backgrounds.)
