I have always been fascinated by solely Typographic media. It’s likely I that I lean more toward type-focused logos and projects because I’ve never been great at drawing my own pictures so MY projects are typographic. Personally, I think the most creative works are typographic based and I am always impressed by the simplicity and beauty of them. Here are a couple examples of my favorites.
I used this one in my sketchbook already, but the Upside Down Productions logo is beautiful! At first glance the words are perfectly decipherable, but at a closer look it the letters are ACTUALLY UPSIDE DOWN! I was amazed. Some, like the ‘s’ are just the letter flipped upside down, but some are actual letters, like the ‘u’ made of an ‘n’ or the ‘d’ made from a ‘p’. When flipped the correct way, the letters are actually ‘umop episdn.’
Another lovely example of a good typographic logo is the Time Timewatch logo. The ‘t’ is made to look like a number on a digital clock, while the ‘I’ creates the semicolon between the hours and minutes. It is effective because it is easily read while still conveying the message of time. So creative!
