Messing with a Logo


     In a certain class of mine, we were doing the usual course stuff that we do every semester.  It’s all very predictable but not to say quite hard. To give a brief background, I’m taking up an architectural course in one of the prominent architecture schools in the country. This means that most of the coursework tend to be hard and there is pressure to excel (for me anyways).

     We have a subject named Design which is what I consider as the basic core of the whole course. In the design class, we basically do what architects do: we design the assigned structure and we work on it for half the semester. We've designed different structures already like theaters, airports, schools. It’s as far as the imagination can go while being restrained to certain parameters which makes the subject fun, cool and hard. A mixture of science and arts; playing with concepts and ideas.

     Well in this design class we had to split up into groups, and there was something new to the plate: the professor decided to let us make up our own group name and logo (kind of like what the architectural firms have). I've had fun playing around with our logo which we named “LifeSpace” since we wanted our design focus to be designing for the sake of space and users. (architectural gibberish for you). I used Adobe Illustrator to experiment on the typography and the logo design and edited in Picasa. Still working on some more designs but these are the top two main results so far. What do you think?  :)

I like the Lifespace classic inverted lomograph looks formal and has the say-it-all quality. The color makes it look like in 3-D. The other designs looks flat. The last designs look playful. I advise you to have a criteria on what desirable logo you want your group to have before you make a decision to which will you use. (People tend to choose because it looks 'cool'.)
