Project Description

ASSIGNMENT

Think about your brand, find a short and good name for it. Make a concept of how it will work, what kind of message and feeling it will transmit for a user. Look around for the references. Choose the direction to go and find the good style for it. Start sketching, make rough sketches first. Try many times :) Select only the best 3-4 sketches. Show how you improved them. Select only one and best sketch then start to refine it digitally. Finish it with a clean vector version.
