Letter designs

We've been designing letters recently. This was a small assignment we did as a part of the pamphlet design assignement. We still had to be inspired by water in some form, and then find a clever way to make a stylish and readable letter.
I came up with a koi fish design that I decided to put inside a simple bold "V" shape, and a second design which was inspired by running watercolors.

This is how they turned out:

I think they both turned out great. They are very different from each other. The A is a little softer and subtle. The V is more graphic I guess you could say. I can't really say which one I like the most, as I think they are both good representations of the work that I do. I prefer them in black and white, becuase I usually work with black and white. Although when printed the V was printed in a lovely gold. I'll try to get a picture of it up on the net sometime soon.


  1. I love each letter! The second one has great contrast. The letter A is so straight and perfect, and the backdrop is the opposite: smeary and leaking. Excellent!

  2. Lovely letters:)

  3. NICE. The first one looks like what could be a logo for a high-end restaurant or something and the second is pure love for me. Something bout it that just works, very much the kind of style of artistry I prefer overall. Also agree about the black and white, both of them seem ideal with that for seperate reasons. In the case of the V it's because it actually enhances the inherent intricacies and the A is more "atmospheric" this way. Good job!

  4. Thank you so much for all the great response ^^
    I'm glad you guys like them :D

  5. I loved that v. I used in the letter "c". Im glad someone did a design i can acctually draw inside a letter.
