Morgan; clothing hanger from script lettering.

David Sudweeks's picture


This piece of lettering will serve as a hanger in a retail space. I am producing it out of aluminum (water jet cut from an ⅛-inch thick sheet). I am interested in all critiques but particularly those pertaining to refinement of the lettershapes, interaction between letters, & spacing. I would like to keep this a relatively low contrast script. Structurally, the paperboard models I have produced are sound enough and balance well enough. Dresses hang by their straps that fit into the notches between the m & o, and the a & n. The PDF shows the hanger at actual size on a piece of 11x17 paper. (I have not removed overlaps in the font file, but will before producing this.)
Thanks.

Thinning out the stem of the /r/ a bit; Changes reflected in 'hanger2.pdf' above.

Cool idea. The /ga/ connection seems like the least convincing part of the design (looks like /g/ is desperately reaching out with both hands to hold on to /a/). I might try making the shapes of the top of /g/ and of /a/ more similar to each other, e.g. both having gaps like the /g/ currently has. The lachrymal terminal at the very start feels a bit all alone.

Be sure to post pics of the finished product here!

How about this minor change:


for legibility. It was readable already, so… It works with that 'o' twist.

It needs to be busy in the middle.

Thanks Craig and Tomi. Especially good to hear from you Craig, and you bet I'll put up pictures once this is cut. I've worked out a few of the kinks and character relationships and gotten a bit farther along I feel. Tomi, I've got a good bit of stress riding on that /r/g/ connection, so I'm keeping it more simple and structurally sound for now.

Did you post pictures of the final product anywhere?

I hadn't seen this! Brilliant.

Surely it's too late, but:
- Would it not be possible to arch it (for better support)?
- A quite important issue here is center of gravity - how do/did you check it without costly iteration?

Looks like a render.

Could be, but there's also an image of the hanger 'in use' on his site... though it could be a prototype and not a commercial run... I couldn't find any 'in shop' images unfortunately.
