I was recently ask to do logos for the new classified sections for Hartford Advocate, New Haven Advocate, and The Fairfield County Weekly. As always it was last minute short notice type of thing. At first I had put together something for them using istock images per their request. But during a meeting they said "hey could you draw something." I said "sure, when?" They said, "could we have thumb nails by tomorrow?"
So here are the ruff thumb nails. I wanted them to go with my twisted Cupi Dolls on the right side, or the girl at the top stroking the "L" and licking the "T". They went with the weird heart shape concept in the center. In my experience the client barely ever goes with the one you really want. Maybe it's just me
This is the final version for the Love Links Logo. They wanted this one to be PG. The Love Links site is going to be for people wanting find someone to fall in love with and get married. It's not really my style and to be honest with you I don't really like it that much. Oh yeah, did I mention that once they approved the thumb nail I only had about three hours to do this one and the Lust Link logo. My time is pretty tight these days trying to juggle a full time job, freelancing, working with the MAC 650 Gallery, and gearing up for the Twinkies and Robots show coming in November.
Now this logo I kinda like. It's not my typical style, but I like the way it came out. This logo is going to be used for the lust link site. This is the naughty site...you know, devoted to finding escorts, and other people who enjoy having sex with goats. Just kidding...OR AM I? But seriously I was told this morning that this Image will be going on thousands of condom packages as part of a promotional piece to help advertise the the websites launch. That is freaking sweet! I'll scan one and post it when they come out.
Later, Joe D.
