Target audience - corporate businesses, youngish corporates, but it should also appeal to the 20 something general population
The logo will mostly appear on top of a black or white background.
Im thinking that there would be at least 2 colours, 4 at most. Perhaps the use of gray/white/black would be so that if the logo is on a black background, white (or gray) could be used in the logo to contrast it with the black, but if the logo is used on a white background, the black (or gray) would be used to contrast.
I will come up with a 3-4 word slogan at a later date, which I am thinking I could put underneath the logo at times when it is appropriate. This will not impact on logo design
I should mention that at a later date, I am planning on getting the winning logo animated (about a 5 second animation). This will be played at the head and/or tail of videos I produce. Keep this in mind such that it gives an animator room to play.
Hi all designers. Thanks for your submissions so far. Over the weekend I have browsed hundreds of modern designs and have decided that the ideas I put to you were rather outdated. So I have deleted my sketches, and have opened things up to some new ideas. I tweaked my requirements: I want super modern, more playful, subtle, more simple.
One thing I am now really keen on is some ideas using negative space (google negative space logos), such as http://webdesignledger.com/inspirat…ogo-design. and http://webdesignledger.com/inspirat…-with-less
I also viewed many designs of current trends, and they are all very clever, subtle, relevant and integrated such as: http://webdesignledger.com/inspirat…ogo-design or these typographic logos: http://webdesignledger.com/inspirat…phic-logos
My logo needs to be clever, in that it'd be great for people to look at it, then have to look twice until they think to themselves 'ahaaa.. thats clever'. I want this to convey a perception that I am clever, and that my videos are also clever.
UPDATE 3!!!! PLEASE READ!:
I have uploaded one more image of an idea I would like you all to have a play with.
Remember though: modern, clever, subtle, clever, and simple
Good luck! (p.s. even though I have it in the sketches, im not that keen on having the 'O' as a big red and obvious circle). Take more note of how the word 'video' is in the sketch as opposed to the words 'tim harris'
