Works: Press Logo
When I moved PixelPress Icons to a blog format I did so with the hope that it would be easier to post some of my artwork that wasn’t necessarily GUI orientated. This is the first post that fulfills that.
I have always wanted to have a great and literal logo for this site but I’ve never been satisfied with anything I’ve designed: I am primarily a digital illustrator and logo design (along with pretty much everything else) plays second fiddle to that.
What follows is a rejected design from 2007 that I liked enough to render in Photoshop but not enough to use. The press depicted is inspired by a small printing press that was in the family home of a friend. It was based on the mechanical principles of Gutenberg’s first press with little innovation.
Ultimately I decided that forced perspective was not a good idea for my logo and I couldn’t fix the design to my own satisfaction. I’m dusting it off and showing it here just to have it see the light of day, for once.
