This might be one of my top favorite pieces I’ve created. I’m in love with the vintage vibe of this logo. One of my favorite things to do when designing is combining textures, so the watercolor paired with the distressed script font is a very complimentary combination.
What I learned: Including watercolor in a design is NOT as easy as I anticipated. If you’re going to use your own painting, when transferring it from paper into Adobe Illustrator (or Photoshop), there are a lot of factors to consider. It’s important either to have a nice scanner or camera with great lighting to avoid shadows and unwanted discolorations.
