All right, so enough dragging on with this would be logo for the past few weeks. Today I bring you the final image / logo of the attempt at creating a brand image for the QWIXOTIC Web Comic.
So it’s an amalgamation of things. Someone asked WTF it has to do with the Comic. Well if we revealed all that then who would read the comic itself? Let’s say there are a lot of symbolism in this image, a lot of story related details that have gone into it. It seems in hindsight almost TOO much thought went into it. But for now… this is what it is.
We will most likely use this as some sort of commercial promo material for the Web Comic launch this year. In the meantime, there’s big thangs poppin’, I’ll keep hitting you with updates throughout!
Its been pointed out that our new ‘logo‘ attempts is looking more like an image. Being not skilled in the graphic arts, and being content in my usage of whatever the hell phrase/term I come up with… (make ’em up 90% of the time) I took a step back and tried to put our ‘logo’ into perspective.
And it’s an image. Yep, it’s just a picture that more is in keeping to our QWIXOTIC Web Comic story, than a ‘logo’. First off it’s too complicated for a logo, it’s got a lot going on and it’s uber detailed. Well here, take a look at the most recent changes made to it.
So you get to see how… a LOT is going on in this image for it to be a logo. (Thank you very much Vince Sunico for shattering my perspective by pointing that out.) But it’s actually not a big deal at all. The way this image has turned out (final version will be shown next week) it’s still in keeping with the story and has a lot of symbolism built into it that connect directly with QWIXOTIC, so we can definitely use it for something or the other.
In the meantime, Vince is doing up Issue # 1. We’ll still looking for a Summer 2011 launch date, so will bring you news on that as it develops more. Let me see some comments and back talk about this version now….
Whew. It’s been around 2 weeks I believe since I’ve set foot into this Blog. I’ve been overseeing (of course) however, haven’t had much time to contribute. But I am back, so set your hearts to a-flutter!
It’s been a busy few weeks. Been fine tuning the QWIXOTIC Logo, along the way learning some things about trying to get someone who you may not be creatively in sync with to DO a logo in the first place. You’ll see what I mean. Along the way, Vince has been hard at work with Issue # 1 of the QWIXOTIC Web Comic. But first things first, lets take a look at the evolution of the Logo from the earlier first draft I posted a few weeks ago.
As you can see, I’ve modernized it a bit. The previous version seemed very medievil , dark ages looking to me. Thought this would look more modern. There’s still a bit to go with it, things are missing, and as I figure out what they are, it will be added/modified/updated, etc. Feel free to leave your comments on it below.
Like I said earlier, we are aiming for a summer 2011 launch for the comic. The website is being worked on. And Vince Sunico of Spent Pencils is already hard at work. Speaking of, be sure to check out FREE COMIC BOOK DAY at Stadium Comic in Shoppers’ World, Brampton this May 7th! Vince will be there doing his thang, and a li’l birdy tells me the other co-creator of the QWIXOTIC Web Comic (Gui) may… or may not be there. What? Oh I can’t confirm, I have no idea. You’ll have to find out yourself by attending!
Till next time Qwixoticans!
