A story taking place in a universe embroiled in corporate style must have a set of stunning logos to match. I may be writing a book, however I feel I need to explore these visual avenues first to get a grip on the identity of this fictional place.
To start, I’ve created a pair of logos for two rival corporations, Kennerman and Volan.
First up is Kennerman seen above (Click on it for detail). Orange is the working colour of this corporation, so it’s used heavily. The shape is a fist, representing the strength of the Kennerman people.
The second one, this time for Volan, whose colour is red (Again, a more detailed version just a click away). I wanted to capture the feel of them being in the same world, but not being too alike. I feel I’ve captured that to some degree. Volan’s logo uses circles, this is to reflect the patterns in the eye. One thing’s for sure, a Volan is always watching.
The overall vibe I tried to capture is a world in admiration to the 21st century, the 80s in particular. In the same way the victorian’s looked back on the classical period for inspiration in architecture, my universe has looked back upon 70s, 80s, 90s as a prosperous time of human civilisation. However, just as the inspired greek architecture was mistakenly depicted without colour, the future’s narrow view of the past means they have only picked the bits they admire and have ignored all the rest.
Writing wise it’s been slow lately, been trying to get a job to pay the bills. It’s quite hard when you are young and lacking experience (also my location is bit seasonal). The sooner I can get a bit of a schedule in my life the more time I feel I can dedicate to working on what I love.
Keep calm and stay armed,
