Walking for Health - Logo

Next stage included friendlier walkers

Various decisions were made about the thickness of the characters and their anatomy until we reached our final solution (below).

Not wanting to appear Hi-faluting, I love the fact that fine art has fed into this solution.

  1. Hi Becks, Hadn't looked at your site for a while, I've missed it. You Walking For Health logo is brilliant. It looks so simple but, you've shown us the work that goes into making, what we might take for granted. Well done.
