The Cloakroom, Gentleman's Club
Logo, Illustrator
It may come as a shock to some...but APPARENTLY Washington D.C. has some strip clubs..ahem...I mean..."gentleman's clubs". Who knew? Crowdspring.com tossed up a silicone softball for a Gentleman's Club in D.C. called "The Cloakroom" or just "Cloakroom". The buyers only real description was play with red, black, white, golds and make it seem upscale and not gaudy/flashy. I gave it whirl. 
 
I'm not really sure how I felt about the designs...since what can you really do for that type of "club" that isn't flashy, and that wouldn't seem like some rave nightclub.  Being a Playboy employee, I took some inspiration from our online publication "The Smoking Jacket".  
 
The initial idea was sketched out by hand, and then translated into Illustrator.
