Mr. Noah Guthrie

First off, thanks so very much Martina! This class was so informative; I don't usually polish my hand-lettering projects as much as this, but this class helped me to further develop my digitizing process.

I decided to use this class to help me with a logotype for Noah Guthrie. Sorry if this breaks the rules of the class project (it's not really a postcard...), but I figured I'd upload it since the class really helped me with my real-life work!

Mood Boards:

I researched a bunch of vintage music gear and noticed that many of them were logotypes and were often in a super svelte script.

My client is an old soul (like me), so I looked at a lot of vintage lettering as well.

Then I took a gander at what's trending now in the way of script lettering.

Sketching:

I got to sketching and went in a few directions.

Digitizing:

After lots of hours of digitizing, I finally felt satisfied with it. I wanted it to look modern/clean, but also still have that vintage/hand-done grit, so I went into Photoshop and added texture + color. A lot of the vintage music logos had greys/blacks/golds in them, so I went in that direction with the color.

Animating:

One of the spaces this logotype would live in would be his music videos. Rather than simply fade on the logotype, it seemed more interesting/customized to have it draw itself on.
