Anchorage Marina 01e (5.0 rating from 1 votes)
Description: Hypothetical logo redesign for Anchorage Marina, a marina in my hometown of Baltimore, MD. I pass by there every day, and for months, I've been thinking about how much the marina could use a rebrand. So, I started sketching some ideas on paper, and in an uncanny bout of coincidence, Michael Spitz - from a world away in Croatia - posted a personal logo/typeface design with the same exact name earlier this week. Just goes to show how easy it is for two designers to develop similar ideas, completely independent of one another. Anyway, our respective marks are for different purposes; I may actually pitch these to Anchorage Marina. Type for 'Anchorage' is custom and is based on Art Deco maritime ad posters. This version has a more illustrative look, and is reminiscent of old sailor tattoos.
