Interview With Adam McGowan
Q:What application did you use to design this logo? E.g., Illustrator.
n50 and a sketch pad to begin with. Scan the design and use Adobe Illustrator to bring it to life. Then photoshop to save the image for this site.
Q:What was your design process for this logo? I.e., Did you start out with pen and paper then move to the computer?
Always start an idea with a pen and paper as your ideas are more free and fluent. A computer is all about precision. Hand drawing is all about freedom and allows ideas to present themselves.
Q:What font(s) were used in the logo?
It’s all bespoke, as will all my logo emblems. They’re mainly constructed from simple shapes.
Q:How did you choose the color scheme for the logo?
Exploration with an aim of being different.
Q:How long did it take to complete the logo?
About 5 hours. From sketch, to illustrator and then colour selection.
Q:What do you feel was your biggest challenge in designing the logo?
Making the CC format unique.
