The Residency – Logo rotation

I was thinking through some basic CSS3 features that I could implement in The Residency site, and thought I would quickly get something prototyped.

The Logo on the site appears at the top, in a prominent position, and I thought it would be quite a nice feature to allow the outer circle of the logo to rotate. So using some simple CSS3 rotation transitions and a fair bit of fiddling, I came up with this: http://immbudden.com/prototypes/logo_rotate/

Its only a small feature, but I think it’ll bring the logo out a bit, rather than having it completely static.

The Residency – Logo rotation

From our client brief on our live project we were asked to develop a brand and website for contemporary jeweller/craftsman Garvan Traynor! Before we were briefed, to be perfectly honest I didn’t know who he was or any of his work, but after the brief I had a good understanding on what he was about. I could tell even by the way that he dressed that his style was fairly minimalistic, this was also reflected during the brief telling us that his work had a modern and minimalistic style, he loved the work of the legend that is Dieter Rams, didn’t like garish colours and that his favourite band was kraftwerk. This was immediately generating ideas for both branding and the website, with a simple 3 colour palette also springing to mind.

As we had a fairly short time before presenting our initial ideas to Nick and Chris, as soon as I arrived home I got straight to work, well I made burgers first, 2 in fact, with chips and they were delicious (below).

The Residency – Logo rotation

I have been a busy boy building and designing (check out that for some bad ass alliteration) Garvan’s site and branding, so this is going to be short and sweet for the moment, I’ll be writing it up over the weekend! I have now written a blog post about the whole thing!

First is the brand options

Second is logo recommendation

Third is extra credit

And last but not least, the site

Bare in mind that the site is still under early development, but I will be making changes over the next few weeks to enable the full function of the image sliders and full cross browser compatibility.
Its all done now, so go check it out, you deserve it!

The Residency – Logo rotation

For a good while now I have wanted to re-brand The Residency (The podcast/ radio show that my final project is based on), but to be honest haven’t had the time. The old logo is something which I did about a year ago, although I was happy with it at the time, it has been a bit of a pain when trying to work with it, this pain being that its too long! So with the build of my major project getting closer and closer by the day, and with some big things coming up for the brand (can’t reveal these yet) I decided that the time was now!
