I managed to get a little bit of free time today, and although I had a few things I could tackle I really wanted to re-address the Creative Logo I and $endosage
had put together a few weeks back.
A lot of people had some comments about how the old factory idea wasn't working. I think we all knew it wasn't; we just wanted to see how people reacted to it.
Back to today, I recalled a comment somebody made about them thinking about the Creative team more as master craftsmen, and so I began exploring tools that craftsmen used. First I looked at a whittling tool, but I soon found that an illustration of it in a simplified form looked like a screwdriver. So that didn't work. Shortly thereafter I thought about a compass and a paintbrush merged together, and illustrated that idea. It was too complex, so I scrapped the thing and started over using just simple shapes. The end result is what you see here.The Concept
The idea behind this is quite simple: precision art. It's what we do as designers and creative people. Every piece of art we make is built to serve a purpose, and all of us are very obsessed with pixel perfection. I feel pretty strongly that this logo suits us very well and I'm quite happy with it.Updated
Tweaked a bit to provide for better balance and a stronger nib.
