I'm basing a new typeface on an old logotype from the world war 2 period. There was a brand named "Gaines" They made dog food in a can. I wanted to see if anyone had any knowledge of who created the logotype, what agency made the creative for the brand, and who I might be able to contact for more info.
I'm basing it on a scan from an old ad I found. Here is the ad:
I'm crazy about the cap G, and the variation in cap height to x height.
The illustrator signature looks like M or maybe N B Price.
You might find more ads for Gains by narrowing your search to the late twenties and '30s.
I love the low x-height.
very rough first draft. Only put in a few hours so far! This is just a fun side project. Not sure where I'm going to take it! by the way @Russell_McGorman Thank you so much! I fucking love his work, it's very cool. and @George Thomas Thanks! I will have to look into their other works.
