This was the first big design project of my fall semester. Most of my other projects have had figure-ground in them in some way, I love playing with typography and borders. When done correctly, your eye sees things in different ways. I like the look of the fancy Q in the Baskerville Italic font, is the f cut out from the Q or is it overlaid?
After finishing this project I looked at it and felt like the logo could very well be a logo for a high-end clothing shop in an expensive neighborhood. The image of the sign achieves this look and feel.
