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. :-)
For this concept, the Astros go steampunk! I tried to use modern/futuristic design elements that would blend well with an early-20th century aesthetic. I know it's not great, but I can't think of anything else to do with it at the moment. If you have any suggestions on how to improve it, I'd love to hear them.
