I designed this logo for a now-defunct arts organization; this was one of my first design projects. With a design brief that required the organization's name and for the final design to be modern in appearance, I had a lot of fun creating this design.
First, I chose a clean and modern font; Then, I removed the kerning (space between the individual letters) and cut out parts of the letters. All the letters except "O" and "S" were modified.
Then I connected the "K" and the "H," created a cutout for the horse's "ear," mirrored the dot in the "E" for an eye, and a negative-space horse was the result.
