After much trepidation, and after rushing through some sketches because I thought OH I can't draw and OH I don't have time, I decided to take a more meditative approach to the sketching process, and ... I actually enjoyed it!!
I was really inspired by a lot of the processes that I saw on here, especially the individuals who experimented with drastically different approaches.
"Crayon Collective" is the name of the pseudo organization under which I do my web design. (I'm a one-lady show though, so the "collective" part is quite misleading).
I would love to hear your thoughts about these different approaches. I think my biggest challenge is that crayons are so... literal!!
I like b because the three crayons stand in solidarity w/ each other (I have two sisters, so there's three of us, so I like things in threes :) ) but would greatly appreciate any feedback from my talented classmates.
Thanks in advance!
UPDATE #2 (4/21/2013)
Greetings from Zombie land. It's 4 a.m. where I am but I couldn't bring myself to close Illustrator without achieving some form of closure.
May I present... my vectorized logos!! They're quite a departure from my sketches. I really wanted to keep the crayons, and I REALLY wanted to make B work, but breaking up the word CRAYON is a bit of a risk.
My personal favorites in here are C and F, for the simplicity. (C is a bit, as my twin calls it, "mind bendy", so if you have any tips re: how to render the crayon in the negative space, I am all ears/eyes).
Thanks for your feedback guys!
PS the more I look at the word CRAYON the less it looks like a word. Is this happening to anyone else??!
