Conducting a type study not only showcases the potential of various letters and shapes but also highlights the importance of identifying what doesn’t work well. This is just as crucial as selecting your preferred options during the initial drafting stage. If you’re interested, I can provide you with examples of boat lettering concepts incorporating the alternative styles depicted above. I start with my favorites as seen above.

  1. Really like the last one with the Marlin and hook. Just to see how it would look, can you do one with a Tuna to match it being a Yellowfin boat, just see how it looks. Also open to any others you can come up with along those lines with a fish and/or similar fishing graphics either before, in the middle (as in this one) or after name. Thank you again! #review
