Lauren - All Vector Text Art Signature
100% Vector Text Art By myself (Lauren
The vector lettering for "lauren," itself is based on a modern black-letter typeface I have entitled Libitina (not yet publicly released) which was influenced by traditional German black-letter type-settings from the 1600's, and made with a love of Fraktur (obsession with) at heart.
I added "urban," or graffiti style "beveling" and other bordering styles on the lettering are in the style that I do that sort of art, and in a way that I remember seeing graffiti artwork as a young child in California, and was so smitten with and in awe of then, and still am today.
Ever so lightly behind the "lauren" lettering are the numbers 702 in Bodoni Bold Italic, which represent Las Vegas, where I am from, as it is the area code here.
And in the bottom right, the caption is done in-- what else, The awesomeness that is Herb Lubalin's Avant Garde (Book BT).
I guess I am a bit old skool or maybe just stubborn, but I tend to make / give my vector designs a "rasterized" appearance. Often times I mix rasterized objects with true vectors, but I assure you this is all vec. Made in PhotoShop. (Still have the PSD's of course, 'cus I did like this one myself and might want to try other things with it.....
Colors inspired by palettes I made on the wonderful ColourLovers.com
Hope you like.
Anyways. Rawk on. <3 Lauren 420.24.7.02
