Recently I've been interested in calligraphic type styles and tattoo style flourishes, and I decided to have a go at putting together a little design. I settled on the four "bohemian ideals" from the movie Moulin Rouge that I recently rewatched for the umpteenth time; Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Love.

inking my design up with my trusty dip pen

What I came up with is loosely based on an existing typeface that I came across, borrowing an ampersand from a different typeface for a more unusual look. I'd love to hear what you think!

Just thought I would share a quick logo design that I did for a new temporary venture a friend of mine has started called The Hideout. It was just a simple design based on an existing font that I did a hand drawn version of. The project is soon to be under way and so the logo needed to be done fast, but I am quite pleased with the outcome!

The Hideout is a recording space for musicians and emerging talent based in Guildford. If you are interesting in recording some material with some brilliant engineers, check out their Facebook page and do get in touch; but be quick as they will only be there for a couple of months!
