This was our last project for graphic design, and was due after our studio project, so truthfully most of the work was done in one day, although the logo ideas had been brewing for most of a week. I was one of perhaps three people in the class of twentysomething who did NOT present initials or logotypes. This is what happens when the professor gives a due date after the studio due date: everyone is half-dead already and feels lucky to have come up with anything to hand in at all.
I had noticed that the owner Claudie St-Arnaud liked playful designs from the inspiration file she sent us, and so I created visual puns, used bright colours, and chose more rounded, friendly sans-serif fonts. There are indeed gun/bullet references: a very typographical bullet from a C and an asterisk, and another logo that clips a section of a woodcut-style illustration of a revolver until it looks almost abstract.
The best way to see the work is to go see the slideshow (opens in new window) at my Flickr account.
