Inspired by my favorite film. Done in Illustrator with Vladimir Script and VAL.
Sometimes, you just have to free yourself from the never-ending workload and have fun a little. Everyday, I have to come up with at least 6 different logos; all about sales, businesses, marketing and the likes. And browsing through my works, a lot of them looks exactly the same! (They just differ in color, size and font.) So, as what every designer should do when faced with such dilemma… I took a step back and just create something fun for myself. My own logo. I couldn’t believe I haven’t got one yet! So, here it is.
Way back in high school and college, when asked which color is my favorite, I automatically say (with no hesitations), “Red”. But when you visit my closet, you can hardly see a red in it. It’s mostly whites, blues, yellows and pinks. So where did I get that my favorite color is red? Where else but my mom’s.
As I grew up and start to spread my own wings, away from my mom’s shadow (somehow)… I began to realize and discover myself more. And yes, that involves picking my OWN favorite color too.
Now, when people ask me which color is my favorite, I automatically say (with no hesitations), “Orange”. But when you visit my closet, you can hardly see an orange in it. It’s all whites, pinks, blues, yellows and mostly purples.
I had a deal with my current best friend/former boss who’s now based in China (and is also a fellow chictopian). I will design/create her personal logo in exchange for awesome outfits to fill my now-boring-closet. Now, how can I resist that? 😉
If you haven’t noticed yet, I have an obsession for ruffles and polka-dots, and I think my mom is to blame for it. She’s one of my inspirations when it comes to fashion. Now, I am very delighted to have a new addition to my polka-dot collection. Today’s outfit, which came in last week fresh from my friend in China: a polka-dotted jumpsuit. The hot pink belt which stood out from the black and white circles made the outfit complete. I paired it with a denim jacket to keep me warm under a stormy weather.
Cam whores and frustrated photographers like me are the most likely ones to get addicted to this app. And since I love vintage and old school themes and photographs, this definitely keeps me up all night. ♥
