Hello fine critics!
I'm working on a wordmark for a boutique book-bindery, called Wings for Willkie - a nod to Wendell Willkie's 1940 presidential race. After thorough discussion with their brave founder we've settled on an 'inky war-journal' look for the wordmark: a handwritten script, marked by the formal ease of the habitual correspondent.
I've attached my initial attempt - but I'm afraid I'm deeply unaccustomed to designing script. Especially a loose, handwritten script. Advice narrow or broad would be delightful! Deep thanks,
(a few notes: I know the double-story 'g' and the roman 's' are most irregular. But for legibility and my love of ornate 'g's I submit their plea - am I wrong?)
