Camiseteria’s Tolkien About

Tolkien About by Aline Neves starts with a great slogan, and succeeds by adding only visual elements that add value to that already promising beginning. The hat, pipe, and beard are distinctive and specific to the series, and deliver a strong silhouette that stands out. The use of lines to create shading is effective in giving the hat dimension, which both balances the weight of the lettering and funnels the eye towards it. The simple background of dots works well to give the suggestion of an environment and reinforce the feeling of magic and the night sky without distracting from the meat of the design. The only slight flaw here is in the treatment of the text itself- some of the lettering feels very stretched or squeezed, and I think the artist might have benefited if they had chosen to redraw the text in those areas instead of relying on the font so heavily.
