From my last post, I started (again) my designing activities. I joined a few contests and I did not get the rhythm yet. What is the purpose of the designing activities anyway? This is to get a rhythm and try on some new tools. I am shifting to Illustrator from Fireworks. Fireworks seem to be dead but there are still users out there. It’s just a personal choice that I learn something new and Illustrator has been the “industry” standard.
Right now I have 7 logos designed in 3 weeks well for me this is a good number since I started. Besides I need to rest from my regular job, things got hectic in the office, due to deployment upgrades and ad hoc work.
I started with Sonic Acacia, It is a concept design for a rock band, an emo one for the concept. Why an emo rock band? Well I was listening with a popular Philippine band that has a lot of emo and love songs. I thought of creating a concept band logo, then the concept site.
The concept site is inspired based on the content of Blink 182 site. It has gig scheds and pages that has music video in it. I will walk you through it some other time, maybe on the web development blog I will put up. The url is already there sometime in December but I need to pile some article first so we can get some momentum on posting.
