Logo Building Project: The Mighty Fozzy Entertainment

Date commissioned: April 2019 Date completed: April 2019 Yes, the one I had in my website for months was a temporary logo. It was always going to be changed. I just lacked the right motivation to do anything about it. I mean, I can do work for others and have no problem at all, but when it comes to me, I suck. So, I got to thinking. A logo needs to represent you. I mean, I logo is the first thing people see, and it should say as much about the company as possible, right? Well, I don’t know how to say all the services I offer assistance with, in one picture. I went with me. Who am I? I’m a brown-haired, ginger beard, blonde eyebrows, pop culture enthusiast. I DJ, I dance along with the crowd, I help others, and I’m always smiling. How do I portray this? I looked back at myself, and found a pattern in me. I thumbs up, and smile, and oh my did I love cartoons as a kid (still do 😉). This made me think about that. A caricature. Of me. Perfect. It wasn’t. It didn’t quite capture…me. Luckily enough, I knew someone who recently acquired a design from a friend of his, and oh my it was good. I knew what I wanted right then. Fig 1: A quick sketch, and I knew exactly what I wanted. I contacted the artist, and started scribbling. Fig 2: this is why I don’t Photoshop! Yep, I said that’s what I want. Fair play to the artist, Mike Devereux Danks, he came back with the best scribble of me that was possible. Fig 3: received_464967304246745.jpeg and there I was, in cartoon form. But, the pose wasn’t quite right. Luckily for Mike, I photo bombed a lot of pictures. Luckily for me, I was able to acquire one… Fig 4: Kelsey, Stacey, and Jordan. Guess what, there is the EXACT pose I wanted…and Mike being the genius he is, made it. Fig 5: received_2108330179254309.jpeg Spot! On! Fig 6: I really shouldn’t Photoshop screenshot_20190415-150321.png Oooo, it’s almost perfect. Mike went away after he sketched the idea, and transferred it to digital. I told him the colour requirements and that I wanted a t-shirt. To which he complied. Then, he said it’s almost complete. Fig 8: received_2311533805792872.jpeg Cue the colour. As you’ll see, the logo on the t-shirt is not me. I. Fact, it is a nod to a friend of mine. I asked if he wouldn’t mind me having his logo on my logo, as a way to say thanks for his support, his teachings, and his friendship over the last five years. Happily, he said yes. DJ Sam Tweaks, you legend. Then, I got to playing with Motion. Not the act, the Apple program I have on my Mac. And, well… Fig 9: Soon to be EVERYWHERE!!!

Sarah asked if I was able to assist her with her design. She knew what she wanted, but didn’t have the know how to create it. She used another company, one who I don’t know of their name, to complete the final design however they seemed not to understand what she was after.

She wanted a lady, walking a dog, in a circle, with mountain and tree silhouettes. She always wears a hat and wellies when walking, and wanted the do to resemble a large dog.

This is the four designs she was sent back from the other company. All really great, but jot 100% what she wanted.

She listed them, by numbering as seen above, he favourite to least. No matter what she told the other company, they could not get the design quite right.

I was asked to help.

After a few attempts, this was exactly what she wanted…just not yet ready for her needs. It was of poor quality, but the idea was there. After all, I did this using sketch, on my phone.

Now, she had her design. She sent it back to the other company and they completed a few others, but had to use my created lady, as they were unable to recreate the exact look…of a bobble hat and wellies. The hat being an addition to the lady, and the wellies, we cropped feet of the man silhouette.

After receiving my design, the company created this. And Sarah, got exactly what she wanted.

A nice collaboration, some healthy understanding, and free assistance from me. It was a pleasure to help you, Sarah.
