I stumbled across this logo design for an upcoming cycling guild call Fount. The design by Amy Wilson really stuck with me. I can’t quite put my finger on why, but it has a striking retro feel and some interesting little quirks. Cool angled cross bars, the deep color-way, and crafted letterforms and typography. It will be very exciting to see what Amy Wilson does with the rest of the brand identity, let's stay tuned and see how it develops.

Very simple styling on this logo design for Fanshaw Rose. The typography and word mark help support the relaxing tone and vibe of the business. The subtle color palette is maintained throughout the business cards and letterhead helping the concept to lean towards the female demographic.

So simple but seems to harness some sort of visual energy through the font and diagonal line.
