Well, it’s been a while. Let’s get started on today’s design!


Title: R lettermark

Date: April 17, 2019

Fonts: No fonts, just custom shapes!

Story: When I thought I was invincible and could take on the world, this was meant to be a logo for a new Android web browser that I was going to build (it used Android Webview).

Principles: This has the making of a pretty good logo, but there are things that I would change if I redid it. First: it’s good because it’s simple. It’s easy to see and scales down to an app icon. It also has that Material Design-style “shadow” coming down. If I was going to change one thing, I would round off the edges a little. Especially on the bottom of the leg of the R. It’s a little sharp and it kind of messes up the geometric feel of the logo.

Well, there’s you a little filler! I’ll have a more lengthy post next time! Meanwhile, checkout my last post about the joys and pains of Linux.
