Typefaces are really important, I find it hard to choose typefaces to represent me but I have chosen this image of fonts I find inspiring. Ones such as Barbeque, Roadtrip songs and Schools out are the ones that speak out to me most because they are all capital letters, which I like. I have never been interested in ‘fun’ fonts like Summer Lovin’ and Flipflops purely because I dont think they are professional enough for a design company. I plan to explore more into fonts and choose ones that relate to me.
I found this image on Pinterest and found that a lot of these colours could be used as contrasting colours. Some of the greens would work well with the yellows and the oranges would work well on top of dark purples. Colour is really important in my work and I think a hint of colour really brings my logos to life.
Colour schemes have been very important for my logo designs. It has really brought out what black and white couldn’t. I really wanted to use colours that contrasted well with each other. Using colours that are very opposite from each other works really well as its very bold. I experiments a lot with overlaying different colours and including different versions. If I was to turn these logos into business cards I think the colours would make them very successful.
I have always been interested in Illustration including animals. Animals are beautiful, majestic creatures and deserve to be shown of in this way. As a designer, I have started to devise logos including animals. I think they work well as strong symbols, as you can see with mine I have included small initials in the middle of the anteater to give it a clearer indication. I have chosen the following images because I believe they could possibly work as logos.
These really are stunning. Although they might be too complex to use as a logo, they would work really well if they were simplified. When looking at my logos, I think these link quite well. With regards to the colour palette they have done a similar thing and use contrasting colours to create tone and shading in a way. I like how they still very strongly resemble the birds that they are with no heading to say what breed they are.
I love the use of colour in all of these. I think I can experiment more with all of these logos, having text, having no text at all. Even including a white eye to show the shape of the anteaters form. Many people have said that the shape itself looks like it should be the other way around. I need to figure out a way to make it look like an anteater. The anteater is a very odd looking animal. Majestic and very large. I think having an eye might make it look more like it should be that way round. I think the font shows me as an illustrator. Its very bold but also slight enough for it to be a illustrative font.
This, as an Icon explains a lot about my way of working. It might come across as unclear to some people of what it is which is why I like the idea of having a combination logo in the end. I want my logo to be clear to people, it needs to have personality traits similar to mine. I quite like how bold this one image is. I think if it was just black with no white inside it wouldnt explain what my identity is enough.
