San Francisco Giants logo missing letters (W.I.P)

Recommended Posts

I'm designing an alphabet sheet using the letters that the San Francisco Giants uses. We all know the closest font to their respectful logo is the IFC Hardball with some editing of course. I own a jacket from their 1st world series 2010. What I love is the use of the letters so I decided to see what the rest of the letters would look like that haven't been used yet here:

The letter B is using the letter P as a base like in the jacket. 

The letter F is using the letter E as a base like in the jacket

 

The letters J, K, Q, U, Z  i'm assuming what it would look like. Any suggestions? For example I was thinking maybe the letter J should be a opposite letter L like in the jacket.

The letters V, X, Y i'm using the letter W as a base like in the jacket.

I feel like the end of the tail of the Q should be at an angle to be more distinct. Beyond that, this is excellent work.

Thank you so much for responce Whittier :) and thank you Atomic for fixing my post. I didn't want to post the image since it's a large file and didn't want to mess up the thread layout hehe. 


Yeah i'm not too happy with the letter Q. When adding the tail gets tricky. I'm basing this off the consistency and the pattern from the Giants letters...

Let's split some hairs: Using the letter O as the base to create the letter Q, do you think the tail is a straight, not slanted in between, with the hexagon head in the end?

I do think the new Q is more consistent with the style, and it's much clearer.

I'm really liking it! You've managed to effectively reconstruct the font from a limited selection of letters.

 

My one suggestion would be to also look at Ocean Beach Major for potential stylistic alternatives and to refine the letters not based on ones from the jacket.
