I spent an hour in the sunshine doodling designs for Deputised Experts logos then came inside and did some scratch Illustrator versions. These are rough versions, I haven’t done much messing around with character spacing and the like yet. As always, I’m interested in your opinions.
Fairly basic “worn” look.
A harsher version.
Emphasising the D and E. I’d probably stretch the letter spacing in Experts to centre the focal letters better. There are better fonts as well, no doubt.
Anchoring the words to each other by using the shared letter E. I have done a bit of letter spacing in this one to stretch Experts out to the same width as Deputised.
