A New Pinterest Logo: Design Notes from Michael & Carlos
"But there are an infinite number of voices a script can have…"
Last Friday we updated the official Pinterest logo! When first designing Pinterest, we wanted a scripty font to contrast with our boxy pinboards. We chose Bello Script. While we thought it was decent, we’d always been itching for something a bit more distinctive.
To help us out, I contacted Michael Deal. I’ve always LOVED Michael’s work, which ranges from apparel to infographics (http://www.mikemake.com). Michael also invited his friend, Juan Carlos Pagan (Carlos) to help out. Carlos is a typographer and designer studying at CooperType. He brings a rare old-world craft to his type projects (http://jcpagan.com). It was incredibly exciting to work with two such talented guys and they were kind enough to share a bit more about their design. Get their design notes after the jump.
