Design Challange. . . .
« on: August 05, 2008, 11:33:11 PM »
OK I'm burnt and can't come up with anything I'm liking so I figure I'll give all yous guys a crack at it.

I need a logo. Biggest catch is it's for letterpress so some limitations do apply. I can get a metal or polymer plate made for it so your not stuck to movable type ;) screens are most likely out of the question though. The logo is for Full Metal Press.

Have at it.

We all run on empty sometimes. (Me more than most)

I like to trawl through this site to get a few ideas..

...clean and simple solids are what you'd need for a letterpress job - or you could go for a blind emboss if it's for stationery.

Cool...you typed "challange" exactly how I pronounce it when I'm trying to sound French, spoken with a sultry sh at the beginning.

'Tis my calling in life. I stay pretty busy going through every blog on the Internet, leaving comments on posts that have spelling & grammar errors in them. You do realize I'm going to change the world, one typo at a time.

yeah ummm speeling challenges aside. . . . Grow up the lot of you, huh.

This will be used in letterpress printing either as a metal cut with lead type or on a photopolymer plate. Single color no screens is preferable.

It's not a business exactly. It's a Private Press. Basically some geek in his basement printing things for entertainment. ;)

Kind of limiting without screens. Can't do the soft shadow, inner bevel, outer glow, reflection that is required in design class. Here is my lame and predictable effort though.
