Logo Final

by wyattnunn

My design was created in class. I had been trying to come up with a logo that could somehow go with the theme of my blog. I was having some serious trouble, especially when I could not use any pictures. So I had come up with a design using shapes and making them 3D, I then made the image 8-bit, but Illustrator quit, and I lost everything. It was late so I went to bed. In the morning I was doodling in class, and came up with something I thought had potential. I drew a dog and was going to draw the body until I made a bad stroke and decided to turn the stroke into a medal that the dog was wearing. The logo was born. As soon as I returned from class I went to work in Illustrator. I got the pen tool out and started sketching away. I then worked the image a round a little and curved some things here and there, and voila it had been created, or at least a prototype was birthed. I thought to myself, this has all the elements of a logo. I was able to create something simple, yet still aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It only used two colors, which kept things simple, and this image could be scaled to any size. Then I thought well I need a fake brand name that can be associated with the logo. So I was brainstorming and had thought top dog would be good, he has a medal, why not. Then my roommate said, “What about best in show?” So then I ran with it. I was very pleased with the input and ended up using best in show. I chose this name because my blog is about my fantasy football team. In my league I wasn’t to be best in show. Our league is also like a dogfight each week, so I felt a direct correlation between my logo and the focus of my blog. I am more pleased with this logo than the one that I was creating that crashed. I also somehow spent way less time. As a logo this serves its purpose. I did not change anything because the feedback I got did not warrant a change. I am happy with it in black and white, and I think it is fine the way it is.
