Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language readable, appealing, and legible when displayed. Our artist, Omar, has been doing this technique for years and we are in for a treat!

The Black Palace project is for electronic music production group (Black Palace). I designed a crest and the whole name ‘Black Palace’ for them. They want a classic typography with dark touch for their brand.

The thought was to create a classic typography with a contemporary feel and add details in 3D. I start with considering the brief from the client and selected the core priorities, then I start the sketching for execution.

It took almost 3 weeks and I really enjoyed doing this project. I used Cinema 4D, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop to make it more dramatic.
