This mark is inspired by Roman Villa here in Colorado Springs, Co. My mother is a chef there and has been for almost 40 years. It is hand made, family style Italian food and has been a staple here in the Springs for nearly 60 years. I grew up around this restaurant and I wanted to show some love with a little more modern version of the logo. I didnt really change it too much, but I hand made the font - a simplified classic roman style. This was really fun and challenging as I've never made a font before. I didnt overdo it, and I may explore hand made fonts more in the future.
