I designed this logo about 18 years ago, for an Art College assignment. The briefing was to design a letterlogo for a famous person. Of course, it was important to do some research about his/her life and work. At first, I thought about making a logo for Shirley Temple or Nancy Reagan, but finally I decided on Richard Wagner. I had done quite some research on him prior, so I already had a lot of visual ideas.
I made this logo by hand, from scratch (ink on paper). Back then I hardly ever used the computer.
