TimeOut London ran an illustration competition to be featured on their front cover. My original plan was to create a simple logo for London taking inspiration from the famous I Heart NY design. It evolved a bit during design but the concept was based on sharing London on Instagram; the city name and it's icons appear in a hashtag.
The other design I entered also used the lettering to convey imagery but was a deconstructed grimey london underground aesthetic that could resonate with the reader on their miserable morning commute.
