Awhile back, I was watching a youtube video by Aaron Draplin, where he advised us to create our own set of symbols so we could save time when we’re designing a new logo.
So I begin to do exactly that, but I got distracted and never finished. Which meant of course, that whenever I got around to designing logos, I often had to recreate every single basic geometric symbol from scratch as I needed them.
When today’s daily logo challenge prompt came out, I knew that a good start would be to create basic geometric shapes, and then to use those to create configurations that seemed to be viable. That’s when I remembered I’v already done this.
So I pulled up the basic symbol set I had designed previously (the first row of the process work below), and used that to start designing a logo.
The final design was a tad bit more complicated than I had intended, but it looked good, doesn’t it?
