I also created pared-down, lettering-only versions (scroll down to see) because I felt the original, hand-sketched drawing, while well intended, provided an extremely inconvenient height for most logo usage needs (e.g. profile pictures etc. where the image is sized down significantly and, as a result, would make the lettering difficult to read).

Thereafter, I provided the client with a detailed brand style guides to document my recommendations for colorization options moving forward.
