I had a lot of idea’s for what i wanted to do with my ident, a lot of them pretty unrealistic. Initially i had the idea that the orchid would be falling to the ground, decaying like it was dying and then hitting the floor breaking apart fully, blowing away and then revealing the name black orchid games. This is the storyboard i did for it:
After using adobe after effects i realised it wouldn’t be possible to create it so i had to come up with some other idea’s. I created a few practice ident’s to help me think of an idea…
Another practice can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HcjYLzjK6c
I didn’t have an idea for my final piece yet so i decided to draw up some logo’s to inspire me:
I preferred the bottom right logo, of it been in a journal because i have previously mentioned something similar to this in my post about the typeface for my company name. So i designed something similar to that for my final ident:
I’m reasonably happy with my final product, i may tweak it a little bit in the future if i have time but for now it’s okay. If i do have the time though i would change the pen sound to make it match a bit more with the writing i would also make the end longer so you can see the full logo properly.
