Constanta Pennant

Hey guys,

First of all, I want to thank Jon for the great class, I never thought of designing a pennant until now. It was really fun and I hope you'll enjoy it :)

City

The city that I chose to make a pennant for is my birthplace, Contanta. If you look it up on google you'll see that it's located on the coast of the Black Sea, in Romania.

(landmark of Constanta, no tie to the project)

Refs

For references I used some Oxford Pennants designs, old baseball pennants and some works of Jon Contino(I'm a big fan of his handlettering)

My favorite penannt

I like the way the lettering flows and the fact that it looks messy while still maintaining a clear hierarchy.

Custom template

I've created a template out of old marble that looked really interesting.

Inspiration

Being located on the seaside, Constanta has a strong nautical influence and the sea has been the main provider for the city since the begining. Thus, marine symbols were used throughout the design.
