The next part was coming up with a name for our restaurant and trying out several different types of font. I ultimately ended up going in the direction of the last one.
Here’s that one refined even further. I edited the font so that the curves on the letterforms matched the curves in the leaves of the strawberry to make the whole image more cohesive.
Here is the completed design for the Make It Work logo. After experimenting with the placement of the type in relationship to the logo image, I found that a vertical arrangement was more visually pleasing than a horizontal one.

For this project, we had to pick a type of restaurant that best represents ourselves and our artistic style. For mine, I chose a candy shop. From there, we had to pick two objects to combine into a logo for the restaurant. I picked the combination of strawberry and lady because, hey, why not? After doing an assload of concept sketches, we had to narrow it down to the three we felt were the strongest.
Then we had to go back and explore different ways to stylize and refine one or two of the sketches we chose in the last round.
Here are the two finalized drawings of my selected logo designs! This wasn’t really a necessary step, but I did it anyway because it just helps me to have things super-refined and narrowed down as much as possible.
