First, thanks to everyone who left a comment or sent me an e-mail about the BAF logo that I created. I played around with the image a bit more and came up with this: I found an old set of architectural plans and then sampled the blues in it. I “averaged” them and came up with this old blue. With the white lines, the pattern is emphasized and the BAF25 stands out more.
We’re planning on sending a postcard to all of our members and friends (e-mail me with your address to get on the list) and decided to use a non-standard size for the card. Since the logo is square and the post card isn’t, I took the sides of the grill and added them to the original piece.
Then I found an early 1900’s blueprint so I could see how it looked and try to approximate the style. Specifically, I liked the print at the bottom, and the architect’s notes. I need to get more detailed information on what goes in these blocks, but I’ve done a little bit of thinking. The worst part is that I can’t find a font that is similar to the one on this print, and I am getting a bit obsessive about it. Suggestions?
