Daily Titan Logo Refresh

Senior Graphic Designer (in-house) for the Daily Titan (Advertising). Goal of the project was to make the Daily Titan logo adaptable to different sizes and to change the type to a typeface that looks and reads better. The original logo had issues with the type since it was handmade and not designed to work well when made into initials or put next to other text, so the type was changed to Futura Bold as it is similar to the original handmade type. The shield was simplified by removing the circle because the circle inside the shield made the logo hard to read when going down to smaller sizes

Challenge: Design a logo that works on smaller items such as pens. The logo needs to retain visual characteristics from the old logo that the community can still recognize as the Daily Titan.
