The History of Canicular and what elements we would like shown in the logo:
Canicular is related to Sirius and is part of the Canis Major constellation.
We would like this to be featured perhaps within our logo, but if you have other ideas then please express them.
Canicular also known as Sirius and is the brightest star in the night sky.
Canicular is also associated with the Heat Waves, so that could be another creative visual path.
Our thoughts: classic, neo-sci-fi, perhaps looking back to some early 70's logos. Hand drawn, human touch.
Please see our attached PDF for further mood, ideas, logos we like and don’t like.
The logo should have a feeling of a human touch rather than a computer feeling.
We also very much like the minimalist idea, with layers of conceptual ideas, such as Saul Bass posters.
We would like the logo to have future thought towards a animated opening credits logo.
For example something like this animated logo with the orange stripes:
We like the beginning of it only, with the trails of light, like shooting stars, or travelling through space. Again this feels more like a optical effect rather than what you might find by cheaper cgi methods of today. It has a classic feeling.
The logo will most probably be used on multiple different backgrounds, so it would be ideal to have the outside edge of the logo to have some sort of blended edge with some fade away or soft haze border.
The logo must have in mind the use of it on many surfaces, for future printing. So a thought to transparency as a .PNG so the logo can easily go on to many different backgrounds.
