Logo Design: Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4

Logo Design: Marvel's Spider-Man on PS4

One of the best games about Spider-Man is out (only for PS4 so far) and has been making a lot of buzz beyond about its gameplay, graphics, and incredible open-world experience. I personally haven't tried it but definitely looking forward to. Going deeper into the subject, we would love to share the work from Bao Nguyen who is a graphic designer based in Sacramento, California. He has worked with the incredible folks at Insomniac Games on designing logos. Not only for the iconic Spider-Man logo but also initial/final concepts on logos like for coffee shops, corporations/organizations, most companies, fast food chains, schools, hotels and etc. To me, that sounds insane and such a fun project to enrol yourself in. If you are currently playing the game, you probably have come across Bao's work already. I'm grateful to have designed some stuff for the new PS4 Spiderman game. Here are early and final logo concepts. Designed logos for bunch of stuff ranging from coffee shops, corporations/organizations, shipping companies, fast food chains, schools, hotels etc. Shoutout to everyone at Insomniac Games for making this amazing game and giving me this opportunity.

Logotyposhnaya: 50 Logotypes in 32 Hours

Still going strong with our Friday Feature where we would go through your submissions from our Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere. This week, we would like to feature the work of Di Buenio with his Logotyposhnaya series. According to Di Buenio, this is a conceptual art performance where he would design about 50 logotypes through 32 hours. The requests are purely coming from strangers off his Facebook and this must have been a crazy experience. Well let's hope it was really worth the practice! Logotyposhnaya — conceptual art performance. I made the post on my Facebook personal page that I’m ready to make a logo of any real brand in 30 minutes. Absolutely free. There were so many people wishing to get a free logo that I received more than 70 requests in the first two hours after the post. The result of my performance: 50 logos; 32 non-stop working hours; 17 cups of coffee; 1 hardworking mind; 2 hands, 2 eyes; amazing experience. More Links Learn more about Di Buenio Some Logotypes

Grid System Behind Logo Design

Grid System Behind Logo Design

If you love of using a grid systems for every  logo design you create, including marks and icons, Kareem Magdi got you covered. He shared a set of beautifully designed logomarks and the grid system behind it. The symbols vary from letters to animals including squirrel and elephants to other more abstract shapes. Personally, I like the use of this technique to make sure that the form is optically balanced, however, I also think it's not needed all the time. It might add too much rigidity to the design.  Logo Design  For more information check out: http://kareemmagdi.com/

Logo Design Process: Marvel, a Prototyping and Collaboration Tool

Logo Design Process: Marvel, a Prototyping and Collaboration Tool

We would like to share this logo design process from our good buddy Paul von Excite who has done a tremendous job at redesigning the new Marvel logo through a custom logotype. From the sketching to the final result, let's follow an in-depth process through his words. I would like also to mention that it is the logo of the Marvel app, a prototyping and collaboration tool not what some of you might think! Paul von Excite is a designer that specialized his work into branding, lettering and logos. Located in Utrecht, Netherlands, we have featured his work before on ABDZ, make sure to follow his work on Behance and Dribbble. Marvel's co-founder Murat Mutlu reached out to me for a logotype refresh. I quite liked the old logo actually. Next to being awesome, Murat was pretty clear in his intend for style direction and after a quick call I was excited to get started. The goal was pretty clear, the new type needed to resemble a friendly, fun yet professional character with lots of personality and energy. The Marvel type also needed a stand-alone "M" character for smaller display usage.   In Paul's Words As mentioned above the goal was pretty clear which made the hunt for inspiration much easier. I had a clear view in my mind on how the first sketches should look, image below was used as a reminder while sketching. Work included from Nick Slater, Sergey Shapiro, Mark Caneso, Leo Gomez and myself.   Sketching Actually took a lot of inspiration from the previous Marvel type, especially the "r-v" and "v-e" connection were interesting to explore further.   Murat was a big fan of the angled versions as it resembled an energetic character. In the following image it was time to reflect on the type and see what needed improvement. The top left "M" was favourite over the bottom left "M", used Photoshop to combine the two together.   Final Sketch At this point it was time to improve the reflections of the sketch above and build the final sketch. With the above sketch underneath I used tracing paper to model the final sketch.   The counters of the "e" and "l" turned out a bit too small but left it at that and decided to go digital from here and refine it in Illustrator later.   Digital Version Below is a screenshot of the final sketch with the vectoring lettering on top. To position the characters correctly along the curved underline I started the tracing with the underline and used the underline as grid. The finished trace has a slightly less slanted curve angle, coming closer to an arch. Other aspects like kerning, stroke width and corners were also digitally refined.   Alternate Version With the full logotype done we still needed a stand-alone "M", this particular one was tricky to use because it was so slanted and angled. This caused us exploring back and forth between different "M's" but after all we maintained the original "M".​​​​​​​   The stand-alone "M" will only be used at the smallest display's, on small to medium and above sizes the full Marvel type will be used most. We modified the original "M" from the word-mark to make it fit better within smaller sizes and make it look more extinct.   Final Result Had an awesome time working together with Murat on the new Marvel logotype and really satisfied how the final result came out. Hope you like me doing this kind of articles more often, I would like to do this on a more regular basis and happy to hear your feedback for improvements!   Links Find out more about Paul von Excite: paulvonexcite.com Follow Paul on Behance And follow him on Dribbble
