Pizza Express – Ideas – Guidance in Class

I spoke to the client today and he reminded me that he likes the design of the Pizza Express logo.

Here is a close-up. I like it too. I think it looks classic, classy and recognisable. It reminds me of the Art Nouveau style.

I did an image search and looked at some Art Nouveau style graphics. I liked the blue one.

Conclusion
Its been interesting to try this out. I think the first one was the most successful. The others seem a bit too busy. This gives me an idea of what I can try now. I’m going to show the tutor and see what he thinks.

Update 12/03/14
The tutor agreed that these are a bit too busy. He said I should try drawing something from scratch. So I’m going to try that. I’ve never really tried before so it will be a bit weird. I feel like I might be able to do it.
