Sooo, this should be my final change to my logo. After another class discussion with the name of my logo (and how I always call it “slaughterhouse”) I have decided to change the name of my community. I know that, originally, I didn’t want to name it slaughterhouse because I thought it was too harsh and quite frankly, too “much”. But, having realised I am always calling it a slaughterhouse, it just makes sense to ignore my previous doubts and just call it as it is (no mucking around! Well, kinda). So, without changing up my ideas on what I wanted for it to look, I still kept it fairly simple but strong and straight to the point.
I changed the G, first of all, and added a black rectangle at the end of the spur (had to look up the anatomy of a G for that one) so that it corresponded with the rest of the block letters. I changed the kerning between each letter so it was all proper (it was all over the place beforehand) and allowed some breathing space but not too much as I wanted close proximity within each other. Listening to some great advice (courtesy to David) about cutting up the logo in the form of “cuts” so I tried it out. It was working really well so I followed that concept. In the third one I thought I’d follow the idea of my previous Meatworks logo with the S being on a hook. However, I felt it was boring to be honest so I decided the slice and dice idea was a good way to go. I really liked the 5th idea and went with that one onto my final logo (hopefully, please pray).
This is my final one (yaaaaass!) and I love it. I don’t know if I have to explain the meaning behind it and I am not actually good at explaining but the line is through the word “LAUGHTER” (Clever, right??). Obviously, there is nothing funny or laughable about a slaughterhouse and is the exact opposite representation to laughter. So I decided to isolate that word and found it ironic to have that word within another which is anything but. It is simple but highly effective in my opinion and is a logo which I am loving. I didn’t think it would work so well and considering the word is so long, I really wasn’t going to try this out but I am really glad I did. Maybe let me know what you think?? Okay, bye!
*UPDATE: Jokes, I’m back. Here’s another two versions with minor readjustments etc.
And another one.
Okay, bye (should be the last bye).
