Week 6: Logo & Business Card Design

This week I used the concepts from previous weeks classes to develop a logo and business card for myself.  I began by sketching out some concepts for a logo but quickly decided that playing around with fonts and layout on illustrator would inspire more ideas.  I was quickly drawn to the concept of using my initials and first name to form interesting negative shapes.  Figure 1 shows an exploration of my logo design.

Once I was happy with a design I started to incorporate it onto a business card (Figure 2).

I settled on a design and began to experiment with colors and to design the back of the card (Figure 3).

In the end I settled on the following logos and business card (Figure 4&5).

I am happy with how this design came out.  I think it does a good job of showing my passion for design and creativity with my engineering skills.  I am also happy with the use of negative space in my logo.
