Alex asked me a few months ago to come up with a cover for his book he was writing. But first I had to come up with a logo.
Looking through the history of the Underground logo I came across a few different styles we could use. Some incorporating the roundel logo, some with just the font, some with the lines on. I thought it would be a cool idea to have the logo change slightly depending on which chapter we are on. So on some of these we have the O being incorporated as an interchange. That sort of thing.
We found after a few of these that we didn’t want people to think that the book was some official underground literature, so adding the script typography for Storyteller was something we tried. I think after trying all of the different ones, settling on having a mixture of official Johnston font, mixed with a handwritten script worked well.
Alex releases a new cover for each chapter, so I’ll be posting each of the new covers every month too :)
