ok, its official... this will be my new logo. i have never been totally happy with any of my pedale logos upto this point. for this logo i decided to do another mash up of a traditional german script font. taking things apart and putting them back together has always been an important part of my design; so, naturally i wanted to incorporate that in my brand. for some time i have always been drawn to german letters and i could not remove the idea shown above from my head. i spent about 15 hours over the last 2 weeks tweaking and adjusting the new letter to my specific preference. i made over 50 versions, all a little different from the last. finally, i am happy with this logo and believe it was the most crafted work i have created yet.

a couple of weeks ago i started making shapes at random. i decided to start looking at the shapes i created and see what objects they reminded me of. once i discover the object, i manipulate it fit the shape it reminded me of. this is my first try... i havent really developed the idea, but i am happy with how this first one turned out. the shape below the word is the random shape that i started out with.
