The Nymphont Winged Coffin Logo Design

The Nymphont Winged Coffin Logo Design I think most who are familiar with myself and my pseudonym/brand/moniker "Nymphont" are also familiar with the "winged coffin" logo I use with the name. It is something that I really am quiet proud of though it brings me no accolades or prestige, but because it is very personal, and symbolizes me quite well. And I just like the design, and have a lot of fun using it. That said, it is deserving a bit more detail.

Nymphont Logo
Here's a basic run-down on the logo I use for branding "Nymphont." Since Nymphont is me, the logo does have personal significance, the coffin with wings logo is actually inspired by a tattoo that I have on the back of my neck (photo below )
A coffin has a definitivly Gothic theme, so I chose a Gothic black-letter font for the lowercase 'n' inside the coffin, which of course represents Nymphont.

But I didn't choose any old black-letter. The letter 'n' used is actually from my unreleased black-letter typeface design called LT Libitina. So it is, totally unique to, and a perfect representation of, Nymphont.

Then for the lettering of the Nymphont wording itself, I used Avant Garde bold, Herb Lubalin's fantastic typeface.
Nymphont Lettering Style
The name Nymphont does have it's measure of shock value, and therefore needs no emphasis, so the emphasis is re-directed by the different coloring for the letters ' NYM ' and ' PHONT. ' The emphasis is on fonts.

This logo may not be copied or re-distributed in anyway shape or form please! This logo IS me. Appreciate all feedback.
