Working on a Byron Bay clients logo and needed to create an illustrative linocut logo design.
By BJ2DESIGN – Australian Logo Designer.
Initially started at looking to use an Illustrator brush that mimics a linocut look and feel but have opted to use the traditional craft method of actually doing a linocut for the logo / illustration.
After first presented a number of illustrative sketches for the direction, look & feel of the logo based on the logo design brief, one logo concept was selected.
With the selected concept which will use the Byron Bay lighthouse another round of refining the logo, in particular the illustrative sketch was then approved.
Then the sketch / illustration of the Byron Bay lighthouse was hand drawn onto the lino where it was cut out using lino tools, which are a bit like small chisels.
The next step was then to do a printed proof of the linocut but instead side stepped the inking and printing process by doing a scan of the lino cut via computer.
There are some slight modifications needed to be done so you can see the first linocut done below and following this will be another version of the same linocut image.
After reviewing the first linocut illustration the decision was made to do another lino cut for the illustration.
