Thanks for joining me for another Daily Design! I’m glad you’re finding them interesting and I hope you’re able to easily learn design principles through them. If you want to read previous Daily Design posts, check out the series on Hashnode or look for them on my blog. Let’s get started! ✊


Title: D&M Productions rebrand

Date: October 27, 2019

Fonts: Modified Big John

Story: For those of you that don’t know, I run a YouTube channel with my friend. We make stupid sketches with VFX. Our original logo was built four years ago in Microsoft Publisher and it used a generic font. As you can imagine, it didn’t look very good. This is what I came up with as a reboot.

Principles: I’m a big fan of this design for two reasons. The first is that it’s nostalgic. Take a look at the original version:


You can clearly see some similarities between the original and the reboot- the color schemes are similar and they both consist of letters inside a circle- which is always a good idea when you’re doing a branding for a pre-existing company/client. The second reason I like the design is that it looks three-dimensional without sacrificing simplicity. I used two crescent-moon shapes, rotated them into a circle, and then darkened the second one, which creates a similar effect to the one we discussed in the last post.

That’s all for today! See you tomorrow! 👋
