Just a personal rebranding I did a while ago. Hope you guys like it!
PS. I'm still looking for a Dribbble invite so if anyone has one to spare that would be awesome!
I like it. It's intriguing and I get the golden rule reference. I am not sure I get what you are trying to say with it about yourself. That you use the golden rule? That you are a educated designer / illustrator? That you understand proportions and composition? Just my thoughts. The message is not clear to me, unless I am missing something of course.
@jrubio Hey! Thanks for commenting. Well, nothing too serious/special about the Golden Rule, just an interesting loose implementation of it. I basically tried to implement the Golden Ratio principle into the design in a similar fashion to how Pepsi logo uses it.
@BartSitek ah cool. Keep at it. You're going somewhere with it.
@jrubio Thanks man, keep on rockin'!
Nice logo, and awesome presentation.
@authorandrew Thanks mate, glad you like it!
Love to see it developed, but I have to say that it instantly reminded me of the BMW M series logo.
@lastrosestudios Great, thanks for your comment. Oh, yeah, I actually noticed that too (after the fact though). I think it's inevitable really, when you're reaching such levels of simplicity. This here is a great example. There are subtle differences for instance in how stripes are connected, which I was actually trying to avoid, as it may cause issues with letterpressing and such. There are many similarities when things get simplified, for instance Leica vs Krop, and I'm using something similar for my another project too. I guess it is all good, as long as you're able to justify how you got there. In my case it was natural transformation from 3 connected shapes into something more aggresive and simple. Also, like I mentioned before, I wanted to disconnect the stripes for letterpressing.
@BartSitek Absolutely fantastic response! indeed as long as you're able to justify how you got there (and as long as it's not identical) you are in good shape. In this case we can see exactly how you got there, with the only thing missing is the reasoning behind the choice in blue.
@lastrosestudios Thanks again! It's a little funny story actually. At first (with my previous logo), I thought I'd go with 3 RGB colored stripes to show that I'm into graphic design and all that. It turned pretty crappy and as I kept playing with it, I tried shades of blue (which is my favorite color) and I really liked how it looked so I left it like that.
