Harvard Square

After inking the last version, I played a bit around in photoshop; based on my first inspiration I did a chalkboard like version, then a ghost sign like version (which was my second round of research) and a regular colored version. Hope you like them!

Thanks for the class Isabel, it was great!

After doing more research I decided to do a couple more sketches tryinge different type styles based on the layout of the inicial chosen sketch (if that makes sense).

I realized that having a curved line on the bottom of the word harvard and a straight line on top made it hard to balance the whole word due to the H and the D at the end.

So, I decided to try the whole word harvard on a curve. 

I'll upload the sketches in order.

Hello everyone!

I am currently living in Boston, more specifically in Cambridge in a neighborhood called Harvard Square. 
I decided to go with Harvard Square, it is long enough and two words allow for more play and experimantion with drawing type. 

Here is the list fo words.

Harvard Square is home to Harvard University, and it is a very touristic place. Among other things, there are a lot of restaurants, cafes and shops around, which is one of my favorite things about the neighborhood. 
One thing in common most of the restuarants have is a board menu, which where I got my inspiration.

I found that the menus have a mix of different type styles, ornaments and banners.

I started a couple of sketches, playing with type styles, placement and shapes.
