This monogram is the result of a request by the missus to design her a logo for personal correspondence. It needed to be simple yet effective, while working at various sizes and in different applications without sacrificing any character.

The concept was to illustrate both of her initials within a single silhouette of the letter ‘B’. The chancery-inspired mark capitalizes on the basic forms common in both the ‘L’ and ‘B’. Finally, the split-nib effect was thrown in to dress things up a bit while the tonal color shift was added to increase the readability of the individual letterforms.
