so i touched on this in my previous post, but i have decided that i would continue development of both company names and look into 2 very different type styles.
For Katana Studios i have decided that the typography will be closely linked to Katakana. This is a Japanese syllabary (Syllabary is a set of written symbols that represent the syllables that make up words) and the symbols have long strokes and very pointed edges
As you can see the type face that i have chosen matches the syllabary for Katakana slightly. I liked this type face simply because i has the appearance of being cut or slashed into the page.
As for LongSword i have decided to take the theme of Blackletter that has inspired most of the type faces that followed it. I wanted the style of the text to represent this type yet look more like a sketch but keep the middle age feel/style.
This is the Blackletter type
As you can see the type that i chose keeps the theme yet looks more sketchy and like a design company.
The next step i will be doing is making some storyboard sketches for a sting/ident for the company.
