“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.”

  — Oscar Wilde,
The Picture of Dorian Gray

Brief

Design a logo for Shadetippers, a 90's-inspired surf and skate brand.


Skills

Custom Type
Blackletter Calligraphy
Glyphs App

Process

I first created three sketches (shown at the bottom) for the final logo, then refined and rasterized the two the client liked in Glyphs App.


Reflections

I hadn't previously had the opportunity to get super granular with vectorized, handlettered logotypes, and I really enjoyed the experience. I'd love to do more in the future!
