Here is a logo I came up with recently for a local co-op that is getting going in Boise. I originally had a cityscape in the background. Originally I had a little inspiration from Russian propaganda type posters. I wanted bold shapes and colors as well as more industrial san-serif fonts. Also fun side note I was the one who came up with the name "Underground Produce" for the company. I like the way it turned out.
We were practicing caricatures in my Illustration class the semester I made these it was around the same time I combined Keith Richards with a lion. (my first blog post) The reason Keith Richards was combined with a lion was because of his hair. There is no association with bravery or leadership or something like that that lead me to choose a lion besides his hair. These I wanted to wait to post to my Blog. I really feel as though they turned out well and I don't mean much mockery with this: the combination of the person with a monkey. There were certain things as arbitrary as Keith Richards hair that lead me to chose a monkey. (plus then I got to draw my running banana)
