Hey all, I am currently involved in a branding project for a skatepark located in east Oslo. We have finally agreed on a direction with the design, but I am struggling with the details. Basically, the symbol is based around the idea of a monogram inside of a wheel-nut, with the type and the supporting pieces resembling pieces/angles you would find in a skatepark. The type is set in Bureau Agency, as I wanted a geometric and somewhat constructivist looking typeface to go with the symbol. However, I can't find a good way to get the two to play off each other properly. In the top example the hexagonal is with straight edges, and the type set straight forward. In the middle example, the outline of the hexagonal is rounded to resemble the type more, and in the bottom example the hexagonal is straight, and the type is modified to resemble it instead. The circle between the words is symbolizing a wheel, and the odd letters are symbolizing tricks/jumps and add a bit of playfulness. Any thoughts,comments etc.?
