Wow, I'm Really Doing-It-Myself
Sometimes ideas that are born at 2am or so turn out to be good, fruitful ideas.
Like I said, I did research and found a font that was close to the design of the original YSL logo, and downloaded it. I've been tinkering with the layout today, and came up with a few samples. Here they are, the orignal logo is up last:
I'm also toying with my actual initials. My middle name is my mother's maiden name and the initial used is up for debate.
Depending on whom you ask, it is either D or L (my middle name is DeLima), so I may also come up with a few more before settling on an "official" logo.
The problem I found, layout-wise, ended up being the Ms. The letter M is symmetrical, the letters Y and L not so much. A vertical layout (like the original) looks a little odd, but I tried to keep to the ladder-esque design, for the most part.
This project has gone so much further than my usual diy projects. Possibly because I have time and this one is easier.
