Be nice. Or else.
considering the slating this entire project got, the end result is on point.
Yeah was fully expecting an article about a homeless crowd sourced logo.
Not necessarily formal reading, but I couldn't recommend this book enough.
I don't think this is a post deserving of the sneering.
Pantone's colour of the year this year was a combination, for the first time - next year I think we'll see something similar, not so much from Pantone but perhaps much bolder/statement like.
If you look at Tobias van Schneider's recent post on colour, look at the later numbers, 93, 94, 97 and 100 - all very bold, toying a bit with vibration.
This has been an ongoing trend this year (Spotify rebrand namely) but likely to continue into next year.
This isn't quite what I'm after, perhaps I'm not explaining correctly....
Beneath his image is a summary colour palette of the image: http://designspiration.net/image/395911124503/
The colour palette is also generated from Dribbble shots: https://dribbble.com/shots/3032100-Octopus-data-circuit-board-logo-design
I'd love a desktop (Mac) app that I can save images into folders and have it generate colour palettes as these sites do.
good lord that transition is lovely
You have a very slick rebranding story here but quite often these sorts of rebrands are criticised for lacking originality. The iconography, logo and colour palettes all fall into a very 'safe' and 'digital' framework.
Were you concerned that you had stripped too much personality away? What were the arguments for and against?
Nice, clean, I'd say perhaps that the illustration of yourself shouldn't necessarily be used as your logo, though, as when it's a Favicon it's illegible, and presumably at other smaller sizes you'd struggle to use it as well.
I've had a near identical career path, friend offered me a role at an agency 5 years ago, currently design lead at a startup.
