This is for The Strand's tote bag contest, which I didn't know about until a few days ago. I dug through the other submissions and I seriously doubt I'm going to win, but if you take a peek at the list of judges, then you can probably understand why I wanted to get my work in anyway. Oh, and obligatory song... Roxy Music's "The Strand."
I also did this in-class typography exercise, quick handlettering for Cam Jus, a DC-based DJ. He asked our professor for something like the Coca-Cola logo, so I considered script from vintage, hand-painted signs instead of just riffing on the Coke logo. I think it turned out nicely for an hour's work. Thanks to my professor, Oliver Munday, for tuning it up and making it vector-nice.
