  • Club - logo

    Hi All. Here is a client I wrapped up last year sometime. The end result was one of several sketches that I proposed, but didn't think it should've been chosen. Unfortunately with no success they insisted on having letter (F) be the ultimate design. I was hoping for letter (B), seemed like a good one for the premise.

    By the way, what is scope of the company? It is a website that has LIVE FEEDS to all the active clubs in big cities. The idea is that users can log on to the site and then from there browse different clubs to see which ones are happening. Below are the sketches and final rendering of the project.

    I am partial to C myself, and the text on E.
    You have some pretty amazing illustration skills, you've got a great handle on textures to from your work that I have looked at.
    You go through any particlular books or tutorials to pick that up?

        Rad! Do you have a background in graf?

          Eraser: Thanks for the compliments. I have a illustrator background, so the sketch part is always fun for me. But I believe this hurts me when comes to thinking "simple" and "less is better" when comes to LOGO DESIGN. Most of my logos I believe are real UNprofessional, just because there is THAT illustration background. - something I am hoping to fix from this site.

          Regarding Textures, well there is another habit I am trying to break. I use alot of noise, rust, rock, concrete, etc through different channel mask in photoshop. If I can see a little bit of grit on a design or logo then it feels "LIVED-IN", "USED" or just "AGED" for me, and most of my clients do like!

          Basically I try anything that removes the "computer" feel to it.

          IMAGE: Thanks, I do feel the same about alot of stuff I see here. Art feeds Art.

          DELETEYOURSELF: No I don't, But certanly love that avenue of art

            this turned out really nice. The look and feel of it all rocks man! totally a club look to it. Personally i really liked the concept of "C", but that's just me. Nice work!

              I stay stick with your style. You have style that is unique and sets you apart. If your art is original there and eye catching enough there will always be a need for it. I think you should take the logo you did which is complex and layered, and reduce it to its simplest forms. I would love to see a one or color logo that is flat. It would challenge you some, and it would provide a lower cost logo they could use on press or on something that is smaller. Do I make any cents?

              Less be more.

                Great illustrations skinns, I really like the way you draw! Like you said your logos look a bit too illustrated, but what the hell, it is your style and you should take advantage of it. I must agree with Mynock when he says:
                I would love to see a one or color logo that is flat. It would challenge you some
                And if you draw so well, why dont you use handdrawing for some illustrations (not as a logo, I mean)? Why vectorize it if i looks so good in sketch?

                  I like your sketches. Very inspiring.

                  Reminds me that I should do more concept sketches before going to vectors.
                  Creativity is taking what is and bringing in what isn't.

                      I agree very nice work, and awesome sketches. But I do have one question, is this Vector or Raster?
                      ‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

                        Your Favorite Graphic Design Book
                        I know this can span a wide variety of topics, but I'm curious what your favorite design book is.
                        My focus is branding and logo design, but trying to build a library of design books.

                        The point at which no one is able to make a living in a once thriving profession. Your ''secondary skill'' definition would be that cliff.

                        There is no ''general rule''

                        The idea is not to have rivers running through it. Sometimes you have to suggest to the client that they might have to change a word here and there (as long as...

                        I predict that the worse case scenario is graphic design reduced to secondary skill status.

                        What is ''the cliff?''
