A buddy of mine asked me to help out with a logo. He’s busy spinning decks down in sunny Bournemouth. He was after something that was a play on his name, not too formal and something with a bit of a ‘shout-out’ vibe to it. Below is the finished version and a little bit of the process, showing concepts and iterations.
Here's an update to my Irish Rugby Players series. Distractions and other jobs notwithstanding, I've done the line-work to quite a few by now. I'm itching to getting this stage finished and move onto the painting. It's a task to keep consistent with the line-work weights, but overall I'm happy so far. I don't want to be trapped by seeking perfection. The colouring stage will be quick enough, I've set myself a template to stick by. One or two more decisions will be made at this stage. Here's where I'm at so far...
Another five or six and I'm calling it a day. I don't care that it's not all the current squad. Well, I do a bit, but time constraints mean I can't do everyone. But some of these guys are my favourite players. I'm not forgetting about the ladies team. I'll be picking a few of those to draw also. And because I see them every week in the Premiership, some of the English lads too.
I was approached recently to create an identity for a musician for his YouTube channel. He wanted a Japanese influence in the logo. We went through a couple of rounds of changes and this was the version he wanted to go with. It was a nice smooth project to work on. I'll post a link to his tunes as soon as I get it.
