|This is a a mini version of my first design. Very colourful and simple, focusing on bendy text and small shapes. Now i think i need to take the designs futher creating bolder, more exsiting designs.|
Evaluation of my work so far
The ideas i've created so far are good but need to be of a higher quality, so it looks professional. The trouble is my ideas are all quite loose so i'm not really aiming for a neat overall outcome. However I know if I trial and experiment i'll be able to develop my idea to a more clear and straight forward design, thinking about what the viewer would see and the impact it would have on them.
I need to experiment with colour, text and shape to create a strong final outcome.
For the remainder of this project i'm going to make designs focusing on the three areas i need to experiment with above. Firstly by looking at some more artists ideas and then by doing my own.
Ideas taken from Artists in different logo and design books
|I liked how the the artist overlapped the different suits this would work nicely as a way finder. This was supposed to be viewed horizontally.|
|I copied this text as i loved the curviness to the letters and the misterious, middle eastern look of it.|
|I found this design interesting as the character look like he's bending in to talk to the viewer. It slightly reminds me of the talkin paintings in Harry Potter.|

|This is my idea for the motiff. She's a dream girl and you can follow her around the school to find where you need to go. I need to alter the colours to make it more interesting, I want to trial numerous versions of her aswell.|
|Here's the boy version, so it applied to both genders. He needs to be altered too.|

|Here they've played around with the font size to create different shapes and to make certain words stand out more. Also they chose red as the background colour, which adds to the romantic theme.|
|In this design they made a gun out of lettering. I especially like how they've used an upside down 'r' for the trigger, it's really creative. I also like how they've spread out the letters for 'bang' which compliments the sound it would make.|
|I found this design interesting because of the way they created an actual zebra with only it's name. They've given it a realistic effect by altering the font style, size and colour.|
|This is my favourite design. The sentence is made from a mix of sweets, creating a bold, bright mix of colours. The background is kept plain, making it stand out and not look over crowded.|
For my final design i joined two ideas into one. I like the effect of the paint splattering everywhere, it's exsiting, fresh and colourful. I wanted to keep the design quite free. The different colours represent the the different strands and as the mouth is the most common way of expressing yourself, I thought it suited the school best. The bold, black outline is simple yet makes the shape clear and stand out above the colour.
|I started with a really loose design at first, experimenting with colours and different effects i could create with a paintbrush.|
|I continued to try out different styles and shapes, as you can see very loosely.|
|Here i started to think about what i felt Brit was about and the idea of a mouth came to mind, as Brit allows you to express yourself and speach is one of the main forms of expression.|
|Starting to focus more on a mouth shape, using less colours.|
|After having trailed styles and colours i focused on getting a sharpe shape for the mouth.|
|Trailing colours, giving it a more unique look.|
|The next thing that sprung to mind was that the text wasn't very interesting, so i kept the mouth design and experimented a bit more with the text.|
|For my last trail i used a variety of colours to represent different strands and have kept a loose style to the text.|
