I started playing around with logo ideas today. I wanted to make something that was easily scalable and worked in black and white and a range of colours. ‘A Thousand Tiny Pieces’ is quite a long title, so I wanted to play with something a bit more abstract.
I decided to take the word ‘tiny’ as the main word, and surround it with loads (not quite a thousand!) tiny circles, so the word is visible in the negative space. I also constrained the pattern in a circle, so it would make a good icon, and would look ace on a badge!
Here it is, in a bunch of of different colour contrasts and on a vintagey sunburst background;
It reminds me of colour perception tests, or bubbles, and in the orange and brown version of a giraffe! I’m not totally sure about the font, I think I’d like to try something more delicate, perhaps handwritten, but I think the idea works well. I’m using web fonts for the logo, so I can reuse them in the headers and body of the site. Let me know what you think!
