I published my original logo designs for a class assignment on February 20th. To proceed with my web design project, I knew I wanted to give my logos one final touch to get it perfect for what I wanted. I really liked the outline of the lioness head from my previous design logo 2 and knew I wanted to use it! I also determined that I would change the name of the company to give my audience a better understanding of the chosen icon. In the end, I basically changed the crown color and company name and here is my updated design. For a detailed process of the original logos, please refer back to this post: https://runlittlejo.wordpress.com/category/design/logos/
Description: Three different logo designs for the same company.
Process: I really enjoyed this project and coming up with different design options and then figuring out how to use Illustrator to make these ideas come to life. My company icon was a lioness, so I looked online for ways I could implement it. I found a lioness face shaped necklace using different shapes and knew this could turn into a unique and cool icon. I played around with the tracing features and used the pen tool and eraser both to come up with the finished result. The crown was added to give a touch of femininity. In the middle design, after typing a monogram I turned those letters into outlines and manipulated the J to fit my design needs. Another exciting thing I discovered was how to type text on an outline for a badge feel. With my typography I used two different fonts to create contrast as well as using color schemes. I also found a lioness running that I placed into illustrator and then used the pen tool to outline the shape of a running lioness.
