This is an illustration for a literary website run by two young ladies. The initial request was for block letters of the name, especially with an ampersand, and the two of them.
The logo reflected, quite aptly and literally, the website name and its founders. I suggested instead of block letters, we use a more eloquent script to reflect the classiness of the theme demonstrated by the upward pointing pinkies.
Color schemes primarily consisted of a natural yellow and brown to match the tea and antique book cover. Cool green and blue tones make the characters pop out of the background. The devil’s in the details: Close up shows that the lines are left intentionally jittery as if drawn by an over-caffeinated illustrator and the tag on the tea bag has the Chinese character “德” meaning “Morality” according to Google translator.
