I’ve always been around youtube. From its incarnation in the mid 2000’s, I have been mulling around videos and watching folks trying to make a name for themselves on the platform for video sharing.
This process of self establishment also includes logos. Whether they be terrible, terrific, still or animated, they were all constantly berating me, in a way, to define myself. In this project, I finally itched the scratch.
I think some of the most mystical, magical logos come just before a truly excellent game. Capcom, Playstation, Rareware, Bandai-Namco, Sega – there are tons of game companies who have iconic visuals and audio to their name, characterizing them in an instant. I wanted to capture the same essence in my own logo.
Using the line tracing tools we had learned in our class prior, I got to work on a logo that would act as the basis for my own. Though it would use the sonic logo from Capcom as its base, it would be the start to my own identity based on my very favorite components from around my sphere of influence.
