For this logo, I wanted to work in letterpress in order to stay true to the history of news and journalism. I used old gothic wood type (condensed and regular) and scanned the printed materials in, keeping the scratches and nicks that transferred from the wood blocks. 

The sword and skull imagery were sketched and scanned.
