My logo published in LogoLounge: Master Library vol. 4: Type

I'm very happy to let you know that my logo was published in the new book by Rockport, LogoLounge: Master Library vol. 4: Type. I just got the book, so I wanted to share a little bit of my joy with you :)























Click through to see the published logo and read about the design.


The logo you see below is from early 2010, when I was asked to design an identity for Nikona, an association of Nikon camera users and enthusiasts.

As you can see, I didn't want to take the obvious path, where so many people have been so many times when designing a logo for something even slightly connected to cameras. You can see what I'm talking about here.

What I wanted to have though, was simplicity and a little bit of intellectual play. So I decided to dig deeper into what photography is and how it comes into being.

The inspiration came from the famous RGB model, where light as we see it (an absolute basis in photography) composes of three different elements: red, green and blue light.

Then, I needed something resembling a camera lens. A simple circle and a "reflection" on the "lens" were enough. As I didn't want the form to be closed, I added a little star "flicker", a resemblance of the camera flash. You can see the final effect below:





That's all for this post. Thank you for reading and, as always, leave a comment if you like.
See you in the next post!

  11. My-Otome has a real hurdle to overcome and that's to be able to tell a story that's not dependent on knowing the previous series. For people going fresh into the series, I think they'll be able to handle it better than those coming in with the history of My-Hime. I found myself spending more time trying to figure out who became who in this new variation and wondering where certain characters are that haven't been introduced yet. There is also a good deal of similarity between some character designs which can throw you off as well. All in all though, My-Otome presents a strong show on its own without the need for the original. Though it's reworking the concept of the original, it brings in so much new material and new ideas that it doesn't feel like a retread.
