I’ve been tinkering with Flash for the past few weeks and thought I’d share this itty-bitty little test:
As you may or may not know, in addition to being a cartoonist, I’m also a stay-at-home dad.
I’m part of a group of SAHDs that meet often for playdates, bowling, movies, etc… and I was asked to come up with some ideas for a logo/graphic for the group.
Here’s the end result:
I tried to keep the art simple and poke some gentle fun at our collective situation.
Probably still a few tweaks to make, I think it turned out nicely.
OK, and the winning logo is…
I’ve already loaded the negative version of the logo onto everyone’s favorite cartoon website, and I’m looking forward to getting some business cards and stationary printed up with the original above.
Thanks so much to everyone who chimed in and offered advice! It really helped out a lot!
OK, so I had some different takes on the logo I liked from last time done. I asked the designer to try the logo with out the O’s as the focus, as I was concerned it looked too much like eyes and hair.
For reference, here’s the one I chose last time:
And the revisions start here.
I like this one since it keeps the flavor of the original, but I think it loses some of the whimsy too:
Here’s a take with “toons” made a bit more separate:
And here’s some ideas I think I’m scrapping almost right away.
This one almost almost made the cut, but… then it didn’t.
This one just doesn’t do anything for me:
Ad this one… I dunno, it’s like a cross between an airline and a feminine hygiene product:
So that’s it. At this point, I’m kinda leaning toward the original design with the lines over the different sized O’s.
Any thoughts? Suggestion?
