Once again, I found a design on graphis.com that relates to our current type analogy project. Compared to our assignment, this design is a little more illustrated, but it is a good example of how a simple design can convey the desired message. I think this was designed for a cosmetics line called Wink and this is there logo. It is interesting how the serif on the "w" was extended out to illustrate a winking eye in a simple abstract way, but yet there is enough info to understand the meaning. The extension on the "w" looks like a comma sign and it adds to the idea off how an idea can be conveyed with just type and symbols. I am not sure about how the spacing between letters and I'd like to see if less spacing would add to the design. Overall, its simple and straight to the point...I think it works.
