Marco Schröder — Logo for Marco who is a photographer and musician.

You can not only find uniqueness in the photos Marco shoots, but also in the logo I created as well. Handwritten typography is dissapearing in this modern world, and I think that is a shame.

Role: Logo Design
Year: 2019
Tools: Pencils, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop

The first time we met each other we sat in a café and talked about the logo, art and photography over a hot chocolate and a cappucino. I also made the first sketches and compositions.

The ideas flooded in. Some of them I tried out later at home. Some were good, others went directly into trash. After a lot of tries and changes we came to the final verison.

The digitization

Either for an invoice or for the website header — the logo also has to be digital. This is a process that takes a lot of time and effort, but I do it with lot of love.

I usually write the words on paper, take a photo of it and bring it into Photoshop. Then I choose the letters that I like the most and bring them together to one version.

There is also the possibility to vectorize the design, so you can scale up to any size you need, for everything.

I really enjoyed the time I was doing the lettering because I have not done this for a long time. Getting out the brushpen and sketching for up to 2 hours is a lot of fun to me.

Mostly I have to convince myself that the results are good enough because I always see some "bugs" in my work — even when it is not my code. Sometimes I see things that nobody ever will discover.

Apart from all these things I really enjoyed working with Marco for his project!
