And That Concludes This Jam Session
Throughout the identification process I noticed that a fair share of logos were originally sketched specifically for the band, making many of the above font links fan-made versions based on the band’s logos. There are a few designers that take special interest in coming up with entire font collections from one word logos, I would check out Ray Larabie if that sort of thing interests you.
