Dribbble is an online community for showcasing user-made artwork. It functions as a self-promotion and networking platform for graphic design, web design, illustration, photography, and other creative areas.
Dribbble's first logo has been created by its founder Dan Cederlhom, its first iteration was a combination of two existent fonts, the logo was refined later on. Read more about the process here.
The challenge was to update the existing wordmark while making sure not to spoil the brand equity that was already built but rather creating a logotype that was more refined and consistent.
Monoline wordmarks are tricky because if you draw all the strokes following the same width you will end up with something that looks very inconsistent. When two strokes overlap they create a surplus of black thus making the type looks heavier, the solution is to taper the stroke slightly so that the whole wordmark looks consistent.
Combination mark, the ball icon belongs to Dribbble.
