Design : Identity

Created December 1989

Bristol Gardens Logo

A logo I designed for a residential development while employed at Doug Fleming Graphics, again before the age of Adobe Illustrator. This was hand drawn and inked with a rapidograph and brush. The part I liked best were the fiddly bits and the swash of the letter R that completes the circle. However, the Senior Designer took issue with the fiddly bits, convinced that they wouldn’t reproduce well. I came back the next day to find that my work had been replaced with the leaves redrawn in reverse. I liked my original so much better, I redrew it in Illustrator for my portfolio.
