Interview With Vasilis Magoulas
Q:Where did the idea for this logo come from?
The source of inspiration for the Logo/Symbol design was the letter “O”, from the Yoga school name, a abbreviation came from the word “Om” (or Ohm or Aum) which is a mystical Sanskrit sound of Hindu origin, sacred and important in various Dharmic religions, and the classic yoga posture. Three circles tangential to each other, equal thickness forming logo’s final version.
Q:What was your design process for this logo? I.e., Did you start out with pen and paper then move to the computer?
The logo design process as you can see here, http://www.blog.vamadesign.com/2012/10/O-Yoga.html, started with sketches on paper, then design the idea by my wacom tablet.
Q:How did you choose the color scheme for the logo?
For the logo’s color, I chose to use seven colors. Seven as the number of the Chakra, which are the centers of spiritual power, located on the midline of the human body.
Red – Root chakra, Orange – Sacral chakra, Yellow – Navel chakra, Green – Heart chakra, Blue – Throat chakra, Indigo – Third Eye chakra and Violet – Crown chakra.
Q:What do you feel was your biggest challenge in designing the logo?
The biggest challenge for this logo design was to include the letter “O” to the classic yoga posture.
Q:Now that the logo is finished, is there anything you would change about it?
Nope, I feel that the logo express what my client’s company is about.
