So I recently joined a club barely knowing what it was about. As I snuck into another painting class to see what they were doing for their collaborative painting, a person in that class mentioned the group to me and said they were having a meeting the next day. I decided to check it out because it sounded interesting. I won't delve into the details but the group aims to create artwork for outside organizations and ourselves, as well as finding ways to raise even more money for the VCA Art Show. And a couple other stuff.
During the first meeting we needed to design a logo for ourselves. So we decided that we all design one and show each other then pick the best one. They picked mine as the official logo for the group, to be used for letterheads, business cards and more professional stuff. We also melded two designs together to create another logo for a poster board for the club fair that happened yesterday.
Anyway here's my design:
I looked at existing logos for galleries, art museums and other art organizations for inspiration. I noticed that a good number of them had bold white text on a black or coloured background so I worked with that, but I also made sure that the design worked without the black background. So either of these are interchangeable depending on when and where it's used.
We also thought it would be cool to have some symbol that represented us and is able to be recognized like some sort of secret symbol that only we understood. So I tried my hand at making one:
The guy in charge liked this one but one person didn't get the design, and they also pasted this on the poster board upside down. It's supposed to be a pencil drawing a line and I honestly think it needs more tweaking due to the two problems. Especially on the pencil but he already took it as it is.
I also wanted to design this so that the colour can be changed, either for events, celebrations, anything of the sorts. So here's an example of it in different colours.
