I made this logo for Kathrin Eß – an author, editor, writer and blogger.
Her wish was, to have a brush lettering, that spells her name as an acronym: Keß – which also is a wordplay of the german word "kess" and means "cheeky". Additionally the idea was to have a paper boat, that represents the words, which are floating out of her fingertips when she is writing, like a boat that floats on water. I startet with some drafts and scribbles on paper until we got a composition, that both of us liked. Than I finalised it with Adobe Illustrator.
To round out the "floating on water" idea, I made a simpel watercolor background.
