Images depict final lockup, final mark, and rough electronic development.
I was playing around with H and I letterforms set in Platelet, and, after placing the I within the H, I noticed that it started to look like a dog face. After some modification, and with the addition of a curved P for an extended dog tongue, the resulting typographic illustration spelled "HIP." I thought it would be fun to name this fictitious company Hip Pups, which could be a shop that sells high-end dog accessories. The Registered symbol is integrated creatively into the mark by spelling "RUFF!"
