Steve M:

Nice-looks like a high end resort hotel logo.

John Cox:


Thanks for the good word. I like going for a dreamy, evocative look when the subject matter (sea travel) allows for ti..


I really like the illustration. The background, the fonts, & the embossed highlights/shadows are perfect. I feel a little bit of a disconnect with the emblem, though. The title makes me think of those old ocean liners, & my internal "expectations-o-meter" imagines a pattern that is more Nouveau than Deco--more opulent. Not a criticism--just a poorly worded observation.

John Cox:

Once again, I always respect a thoughtful analysis. I try to bend well-treaded approaches when comes to "period" pieces.

Or a very classy, exclusive restaurant menu cover in a fancy resort that would never see the likes of me.

It's exquisite. Nice work, John.


As I mentioned in a post a couple of weeks ago. You're growing with your work...not that I'm anyone that matters. The shadows to make 3D are spectacular! Hope you're doing great! Bring it ON!

John Cox:


I find it invigorating trying to develop fresh visuals. I guess one can't help but pick up and define new ways of working if one produces daily.

Thanks for the kind word, y'all.
