The overall aesthetic we are planning to portray is that of classic, vintage, old print advertisement styling, vintage newspapers, vintage television show logos/theme songs, vintage How To/Educational videos. TIMELESSNESS. The sneakers are VERY modern for the most part with a wide variety of themes, ideas, lots of graphics, details, etc and we want to the simplify the rest our visual presence to stand out from the shoes as its very own brand...that customizers NEED their shoes to be featured on to be a credible artist/designer/customizer.
Attached are a few images of tools in a cross bones style vector. This was something we liked in the past but aren't set on that idea...of using a paintbrush and needle in X cross styling they are the main tool for the two mediums of paint and thread. But we are open to ideas one may have. The perspective has seemed off since a needle is usually much shorter than a paintbrush. I definitely want it to be true to life.
We are open to including the needle and paintbrush in another form aside from the X cross. Or a stitching font and a paint like font...but our goal is legibility and ease for screen printing and using a vector image for flyers, business cards, stickers, etc.
Most of all we want a well designed typographical layout of Paint Or Thread or PaintOrThread. Adding: Custom Sneaker News, or Custom Sneaker Resource can be smaller accent words if it fits.
Areas like serif vs san serif, cursive vs block/straight there is no preference. Nothing too cursive/curly.
Main use will be in the logo section of the wordpress blog theme.
