commission adventures: the shady umbrella

I recently completed a project that reminded me of our trips to Edisto...warm air, blue skies...sigh. 
Kristin from The Shady Umbrella will be using this in an Adirondack chair at an upcoming Charleston event.
A great branding and identity piece, if I do say so myself.

I thought that the italic font would give me trouble but thanks to the wonder of the large scale copiers at the FedEx store, I was able to get it just about right.  I absolutely love doing logo commissions like this and this.  They are almost like a fun pop quiz of my skill.
