    OK here is the assignment.
    It is not a contest.
    As we all know, there are about a billion different fonts (or letterstyles/typefaces to Dr Cas) floating around out there. There are ones we love, and ones we love to hate. Why they are named what they are named is sometimes obvious, sometimes not.
    With that being said, here is the assignment:
    Pick a font. Any font.
    Using its name, think up an imaginary business using that name and design a logo or layout for it. The business could be anything, based on what that particular font makes you think of. The design must utilize the font you choose as well as include the name.

    Such as:
    Serpentine's Snake Palace
    Bernhard's Fashions
    etc etc

    Any takers?
    Have fun.
    Love....Jill

    Didn't spend more than ten minutes on this so from a design stand point it kinda sucks but the font name is legit.

    Cool project I like the idea, I see lots of font pirates who name their businesses after the fonts used in their logos, like SLIPSTREAM COURIER SERVICES or RAGE CLOTHING (real companies). Here's something I did using harlow and niagara.

    Some neat ideas there fellas.
    Keep 'em coming!
    (and for some reason I feel a yearning to take a tour on Maid of the Mist just after getting a new tattoo)
