Karoline Tynes Designs 60 Original Logos in 60 Days

Here is a selection of original logo designs by Norwegian graphic designer, Karoline Tynes, who states: ‘Here’s some of the logos I made during my 60 days of logos-challenge. My goal for this challenge was to develop and promote myself as a designer. The rules were to use a maximum of 60 minutes on each logo, so it’s the idea that counts.’ As a logo designer myself, I can appreciate how much work goes into a logo design. If you take into account the actual formation of the idea, to colour choices, graphic style and typographic choice, I think Tynes has produced some excellent work in little 60-minute slots! I love the ‘Little Knits’ logo — what’s your favourite?

By the way – here’s a rare promo on my part – if you’re in need of a church logotype, please complete my Church Logo Design form (external link). Thanks!

sketch on white paper

This stunning typographic illustrative work was created by Stockholm based illustrator, Martin Schmetzer. His main focus is on hand-drawn typography ‘with a high level of detail and diligence’. As you’ll see in the work below, Martin hand-draws extremely details lettering and imagery, then often uses vector art to aid the final designs. Check out the rest of a small selection of his work below, along with his answers to 12 questions. Enjoy…

1. Tell Design Soak Magazine readers about yourself. What motivates you?

I´m a 29 year old Stockholm based illustrator who specializes in typographic logotypes with an emphasis on ornamentation and detailed flourishes. I like the interaction hand drawn typography can have to the meaning of a word and how the letters next to each other plays together and shapes a integrality.

2. When did you first start illustrating? Where did it all begin?

I have enjoyed drawing for as long as I can remember but my interested for letters came trough graffiti around 95. Graffiti was a great way for me to experiment with the the alfabet. You don´t have to follow any guides or rules and may twist and bend the letters into something own. As a graffiti writer I early discovered a interest for symmetry, something that follows me til this day in my hand drawn typography and logotypes.

3. How did you ‘find your own style’? Have you always used the same illustration methods?

I believe it has evolved through my tags and pieces. My style range from a vintage, 1900’s-era feel to a full-blown contemporary street temperament.

4. Tell us about your creative process. How do you work?

The sketching process is most valuable to me. I always start pen on paper before turning to the computer. For me the computer is a fantastic finalizing tool but it also limits my shapes and composition if I don´t start by hand first where I can go the whole hog.

Freaky Human Typeface by JC Debroize

This is the typeface design padded out with human flesh

French digital artist, JC Debroize, has created these freaky-looking set of typographic letters that imitate human faces. The “Human Typeface” spells out ‘Kerozen’ (above), which is the name of JC’s design studio.

I think these letters are simply stunning, and it must have taken JC a long time to get right! Each typographic character features a prominent eyeball, along with hair, wrinkles and even expertly-crafted stubble! Also, check out the additional project of JC that I featured at the end of the post: Cockroach Morning…
