Hello all! I was gone away for two months because my computer died, taking with it my Inkscape files. Oops. This time around, I know that, just because I can't open an Inkscape file from Dropbox doesn't mean I can't save it there. I got my new laptop a few days ago, and what a surprise it was to go to The Clink Room and discover that one of my designs is going to production! Check it out here: http://www.theclinkroom.com/designed-by-clinkers/draft-day-spring-2014/ So I'm inspired to submit another design. I've been dying to do a steampunk branding, and discovered that both Springfield, Ohio and Springfield, Massachusetts afforded opportunities in that vein, so I decided to have a little fun with the backstory. I'm having trouble with a couple of things. I'm not happy with the serifs I glommed on to the S (they're actually trimmed-down versions of symbols from a Victorian dingbat set). Also, I'm not happy with the outlines. I used the offset tool on Inkscape to produce them, but they got rather mutated in the process, and I feel it's not so clear that the negative spaces in the S are supposed to be gears. I also *really* wish that they had a darker brown fabric available for the crown of the hat, but they don't. Thanks--and it's great to be back. :-)
So I've found some inspiration after quite some time and put together a rough draft of a concept for The Clink room. I feel like the logo is close, but I can't put my finger on quite how to improve it. I know I need to do the merge from the spots to the checkered flag better, but I'm not sure how. Anyway, I present to you the Charlotte Cheetahs. All C&C much appreciated, thanks.
I've been working on my entry for the Clink Room's newest contest, and this is what I've got so far. The aim of the contest is to capture the essence of your hometown in a single cap logo, and that's what I've tried to do. I only have the space on the entry form seen below to communicate the "story", so I'm not going to give you guys any other background information. Hopefully you'll all get it, but if not let me know as I'm trying to make this as good as it can possibly be. Of course the story doesn't matter if the logo itself doesn't look good, so any critiques on the design itself would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you like it, hate it, and most importantly if you would wear it. And when the time comes I hope some of you like it enough to vote for it.
