We dubbed this project “K’House”, pronounced like “KaBoom!”.
The name is a shortening of “Cohouse”, with the letter K as a hat tip to our new neighborhood, Philadelphia’s “Kensington South”.
Former (but forever in his heart) Philadelphian Steve Berry took interest in the project, and noticed my call for an illustration to help make it more obvious how to pronounce “K’House”.
The results are even better than I’d imagined.
Steve has an account of his process on his blog, following from where he started with tracing paper before completing the logotype in Adobe Illustrator.
A huge thank you to Steve for taking some time out of his weekend to work on this for us. I hope you’ll be able to make it to our opening next year, and there will always be a spot for you to crash in our house.
Personally, I can’t wait to get a huge version of this up on our walls in the K’House. I think I’ll be sending this over to LTL Prints sooner than later.
