During the process of working on the illustrations and book layout design for Niko & Kate, the author asked if I had any ideas for a logo for the publication company she was forming to publish the book.
She had the name Puppet Show Press already picked out. So I asked her one simple question which was when she thinks of a puppet is she picturing a hand puppet or a marionette. She replied back hand puppet and off I went to work.
Since it is a publishing company I wanted the design to include the form of an open book and then a hand puppet coming up out of it. I wanted the puppet to look like it may be an animal which keeps its gender neutral and friendly.
The biggest challenge when I work on these type of projects is selected the font style and working on the spacing of the letters/words in the design.
I sent a mock up over to her and she loved it and so I give to you the official Puppet Show Press logo.
