You may have noticed the beautiful artwork at the top of this page. If you remember from my previous post by the name “Logo“, I talked about how I designed my company’s logo, but eventually was going to get someone more talented to redesign it. Well, I was fortunate enough to get my extremely talented friend Jason Scheier to do the redesign as well as do this beautiful concept art. In the above mentioned post I talked about having a reoccurring vision, and that was where my logo came from. I never had the talent to bring it to paper, but I believe Jason did an amazing job at it.
The new logo he provided gives me several different options of what I can do with it, since different situations might require different looks. I’m very excited for the new look for my company, and have already made business cards with the new designs.
I think it would be nice to turn this into a nice motion graphic by adding some movement in the water, wind in the sails, and the ship slowly moving in front of the moon. There will be a lot of fun things I will do with this.
I’m a little behind on my post, since I had some technical issues with my WordPress site. When you are the owner of a company of one, you end up also having to wear the IT guy hat. It is one of those hats that does not fit to well, but with the help of a very nice support forum volunteer named James Huff I was able to get the site back up and running. Thank you Mr. Huff!
We are moments away from finishing the last work we have on the Toys”R”Us projects I have been working on since I started the company in July. I won’t know what to do with myself with all the extra time I will have. I think I will take the rest of the year off to relax, and meet up with some people I was not able to before. Starting in the new year I will be creating a demo reel with all the recent work I have had, and getting things in motion to find my next big client. I certainly have learned a lot from this first project that will help with my future projects.
I’m also planning on doing a big redesign of my website now that I have some beautiful artwork, and a pretty large amount of VFX work to show off.
Well, as Christmas Eve is almost here I will bring this post to an end. I hope you all have an amazing holiday(no matter what you celebrate), and enjoy your time with family and friends. I plan to write one more post in 2014 that will reflect on the year, and all that happened in the first 6 months in business.
