New Logo works
Sorry it’s been a long while since I’ve post on this blog. Trying to get use to doing this on my new WordPress website. Kind of relearning it all, at my age teaching a old dog new tricks is very difficult. So anyway here goes.
Recently been having gigs doing logos a lot instead of paintings. I met up with Jeremy Dubs from Wildcard movies in Bellingham and he asked me to help design a logo/icon for Wildcard Movies, and I gladly accepted the work. I’ve always found it a challenge to design stuff like that for people because it’s really a neat process to find out what their company/business is all about and convey that into a graphic.
Doing this for me takes a 3 step process. First it’s the brainstorming and sketching of everything that comes to my head visually of the logo itself. It could be letters and type, illustrations, abstract shapes etc… Then when something catches my eye then I go off in that direction. If it leads to nowhere then I choose another direction and so on. This usually take days to weeks, then it gets to the point where I either have something to show or I walk away from it for a few days then re-visit it again.
So I had a great time doing this logo and another logo/ graphic idea in the form of a tiger. Jeremy originally wanted a series of shirts depicting wild animals to convey the “WILD” theme in the name.
Lucky Snowboards is another company that I had to do a quick logo for. For this it was because I had to design one of the snowboards for Lucky for a fundraiser auction event. The logo was more of a branding type work. I will work more on helping Lucky develop their look and direction for the 2013 line. Can’t wait to get that started.
