Hey, so I was talking to a dude on aim, and I was talking about how if I never get hired to a design firm, I would start my own design firm. Then we bullshitted about how all the logos would involve vampires or poop or something bizarre that a client would hate. Then, for the hell of it, I came up with the logo, complete with poop:
Now a quick bit of history, when I first started subscribing to art magazines, for company name, I would put down awesome dude, that way when i got the magazine in the mail, it would be addressed to Matt Raney, Awesome Dude. So if I ever started a design firm, it would be called Awesome Dude. Hell, it would have
to be called awesome dude.
Anyway, back to reality, oops there goes gravity, I really REALLY don't like the way heyraney.com turned out. I don't regret the learning process and I still think the portfolio portion turned out kind of neat-o, but the red background is garish and the code is sloppy as hell. Go ahead, source view it, its a rat's nest.
So now I'm redoing the website and wanted a for real logo, so I reused the awesome dude, and hell, I actually like it better. better flow, more bull-ness, but sadly, less bull shit.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, Mike re-ignited my love affair with rockwell and rockwell condensed.
Hope everything is well in your part of the world.
