i need some input.
i was asked by a creative collective called Paper Lanterns to create a logo for them.
this is what i have come up with after a few revisions and lots of sorting through other designs so this is not my first attempt, i don't want you to be thrown off by the simplicity of it. this was basically worked off a "P" and vertically reflected "L" along with the inspirations listed below.
paper lanterns are obviously a japanese cultural display, and through my research i found that a specific lettering was used for celebratory lanterns. now, the lettering i'm showing here is a variation and used for seals, but i chose this as inspiration because it had a more solid feel.
i was also inspired by square paper lanterns and the wire form, although mine are vertical.
another issue is working with a font to go with this, since Paper Lanterns is relatively unknown and a new collective, the name is going to have to be associated with the logo, any ideas of a suitable font?
i found one lead that may work...
