  1. If anyone is interested, I went with pretty much the logo I had in the first place :P ...only with the bird 'put down' and a negative space feather in the 'O' (along with some tweaks to Ks).


    A long way round to get to where it is, I had an attachment to the bird which was not helpful and it had to go one way or another.

    Happy with the result, now I can just use the one logo rather than a mix of different silly arrangements.


    Now on with proper work.





  2. It depends what you want to communicate. 

    I don't feel the one to the left communicate anything. The second one is stronger and the feather theme is clear.

    The third one shows the feather too, and I think the circle symbolise an oldfashioned pen tip. 


    The name and the mirrored L isn't appealing I think. But that is maybe the associations they give my in my language. ;)



    I do get you point about the inverted L, but it messes the feather up when the correct way, I tried several ways to make it work (I went feather mad yesterday, 12 different variations) I actually did have a pen tip one end in a first round, but it looked terrible when used landscape.


  3. Between work this week, I've been playing with a new logo...partly because my bird doesn't work in printed applications but mainly because I'm a fussy idiot who cant stop tinkering.


    Anyway, Ive whittled my designs down to three feather designs, but cant pick which one is best.


    Earlier designs were way over complicated and way over engineered, so I have cut some fat and tried to keep an element of readability....the first rounded one although looks great also looks like a 'D' so the middle and last have a more feather look.


    (The logo will be used landscape and tower as it is now)


  4. i really liked the monster one! All affinity?


    Indeed all Affinity Designer. I'm working the monster idea into another piece at the moment, as I'm pushing for work from this i went for sweats and tasty treats so a not to put anyone off.

    I love monsters and zombie stuff but its not everyones taste.

  5. Good work, interesting to see you've put the outline work on a top layer.
    I do a similar thing when I work in illustrator, in Affinity you can place outlines directly on shapes and then keep all shading and colouring inside the same object using layer mask options. Which makes shading super fast.


    Great illustration though very neat :)

  6. Yer I'm not sure why you do that? virgin copy is usually imported from a word file then formatted ready for print, so usually you would have all the copy to begin with.

    Im not even going to mention footnotes... I completed a book so heavy with footnotes last year that it drove me to the edge of insanity  :wacko:
