Fellow Portlander ringing in! I was so encouraged after watching this video I wanted the challenge of going 100% custom type starting from sketch. After dozens of layout/options I landed on this initial design, threw in illustrator and transformed it by using only circles and straight lines. Simple and clean!
Filled and colored, was having a little trouble with the right side and too much space so I added a coma and it felt much more balanced!
Then started getting weird with it and adding elements to make it more 'northwest'. I took the bottom og the "g" curve to make water and then went from there.
Huge thank you to Aaron Draplin for being such an inspiring and awesome dude. This was bby far my favorite Skillshare class ever. And the only one that I actually created a project for. Can't wait until the next one!
