Graphic Design Logo for ITZME
- What challenges did you face? Deleting anchor points and still have the same smooth line it was before but with fewer anchor points.
- What tips do you hope to remember to use in the future? Remember to use the shape builder tool to connect different shapes and to be able to cut out different shapes from shapes with the use of the shape builder tool. Also with the use of this tool that you can make your objective into multiple different colors at once easily.
- How can you use some of these techniques in your own designs? I will probably use the shape builder tool to shape ou the ground for my own logo and finding new shapes with help of it that can be used in the logo
These are 50+ ideas and sketches I had for my logo design and they are just drawn out very quickly with some small changes on some of them just while other of them were totally different from the previous one. The ones that are small changes on can just be that I tried to place the font in a different position to the logo. There are also different font styles on here when. was trying to figure out a good way to type out ITZME and combined it with the logo. The ones that are made in the black pen were the designs that i wanted to put into illustrator and create so I drew them up in a more sharp way and detail way and spent some more time on doing that.

These letters were created to get a view of different styles I could have the starter letter of ITZME and we created the same type of letter in both illustrator and procreate to see which one we liked the most.
I personally like illustrator more because I find it easier to make shapes and edit shapes in illustrator than in procreate on the Ipad but that can also be because I am more used to using illustrator. I would say that it is easier to make more round shapes on procreate than it is on illustrator but it is easier on illustrator to make more sharp shapes and boxes. It is also easier to play around with different colors on illustrator because you can just select the object and then change the color.
These are the different designs for my final logo I have come up with, I am still deciding how i should put the font to the design of the logo and what looks best of it. Some feedback I got was that I should try to put the font in the middle of the logo and have the font bigger and that is what I tried in the bottom right corner. I like it better when it is on the top or below the design and not in the middle over it.
These are some more photos of the designs I did and was playing around with the feedback I got and did some more designs of the feedback. I did kind of like the style when putting the text in the middle but I found that it looked better with the text outside of the logo. I also tried out the logo in different colors to different backgrounds mostly to see how the different colors looked to different backgrounds colors. Also tried to do the smiling face but I think that it was a bit too complicated to make to rounded shape at the bottom of it.

These are the mockups I did with my logo design. I did with both logos because I have not fully decided which one to go with and I felt that it would be good to see both of them on some different things.
Final Logo Design
This is the logo I chose to use as my final and I like of it looks and also the color combination of it with the blue as the main color and black behind as a bit of shading to get it to look a bit more alive.

Reflection to the client’s aspect of the logo
The final logo shows that client with music sound waves at the top under the font ITZME and I added music in the middle to make it more clear that it was a music logo if the sound waves didn’t make that part clear of the logo. The stage name is ITZME and it is centered on the logo so you can see the name of the artist clearly and the color choice of the final logo is blue and that is to represent Australia because he is from Australia from the beginning and wanted to get that into the final design of the logo. I did some red ones that would represent China but I felt it was better to go with his home country to get represented in the logo.
I think that this logo will interact with a young audience because it is very clear and there is not to much things on it and on the same way it is not the little stuff on the logo so i think that the audience will find that the logo has a good balance adn that it can be put on many different things and still look good.
Personal reflection of the final logo
I chose this as my final logo design because it is more clear and not as complicated I feel like because it has straight lines and nothing is rounded out in the shape form of the logo. I also think that blue was the best color for it because it is visible to different colors on backgrounds. Something I feel that could get some more work on the logo could be that the lines that are going down from ITZME to make than a bit bigger so you can see them better and also what color they are in because you can’t really see what color they are in now when they are so small. Something I would do next time would be to add these lines on the letter of MUSIC in the middle of the logo because they are already at the main name of the logo but I would like to have the same style through out the whole design so that is something that I would do differently next time.
