Product design and manufacturing are my specialties and just because I own Illustrator and Photoshop doesn’t mean I can (or should) make a logo for the Spin case. That’s why I turned to a professional graphic designer. Here’s a couple reason which might benefit anyone interested in turning their project into a legitimate product.
First, I know my eye’s limitations when it comes to good graphic design. There’s always someone out there that sees things just a little differently yet is able to communicate my intended message. I think the idea of incorporating circuit board vias and traces into a circular shape is genius. Since I don’t deal with electronics much, I would have never thought to incorporate those design elements.
Second, even if I were a talented jack-of-all-trades, it would not be wise to spread myself thin across every aspect of development of the Spin case. Instead, I chose to focus on what I do best. By rounding up others to apply their expertise gives the project a professional touch from initial idea to product launch all at a faster development pace. If I did everything myself the Spin case would be a good design surrounded by a lot of mediocrity and arrive late to the party.
Enough talk… let’s check out the logo.
The more I look at them, the more I think these logos need to live on T-shirts too. What do you think?
