This week's Creative Tuesdays theme is Blog Icon/Button. Well, I have to admit, I have no idea how to go about making a button, but, in a sense, well at least very relatable, this seems to fall into the realm of Logo Design, so that's how I chose to go.
I've been a fan of corporate logos for sometime. Even as a Kid I always loved seeing a really good one, and have dabbled with creating my own over the years as well. In fact, I used to make up sports teams names and try doing their logos as well. I have a post of some of these that I posted back a while, in case anyone wanted to check them out.
Unfortunately, when i get outside the world of abstract, my artistic ability is rather limited. But I'm trying here and there, and I have to say I think I'm getting better at the more traditional styles, and I have Creative Tuesdays as a main reason for the progress, as while you can pretty much incorporate abstract into anything, but many of the themes It gives you a great opportunity to at least attempt something outside your comfort zone, and like many of the times, I didn't like what I was getting so I went back to the abstract, but the old adage, practice makes perfect rings oh, so true.
For this theme, I used the inverted C with a triangle in the center. I've used this logo numerous times, for a variety of things, over the years, and it's kind of stuck with me. So, for this first design here, I did one by itself and then in the center I did an expanded design featuring it in various poses, so to speak, and then in the bottom I played with a logo utilizing the Sqwerm blog name. It's a lot of fun, and a great theme this week. Can't wait to see all those submitted.
And, just for fun, while I had the design fresh on the screen, I pulled out my faithful friend, the knife and played around with the logos, and in the process, created an abstract piece.
