3D Logo Design
There was quite an in-depth creative process in bringing the Irish Guy Website Design, Programming, and SEO Services 3D Logo Design forward. The concept of the logo design was quite instant. I instinctively comprehended what I wanted. Being the client and designer for this design does make that transition easier.
However, making sense of a concept takes steps. Bringing that original abstract idea to fruition requires a process. As the graphic designer, I have to move with the design. While other graphic designers are comfortable creating the design from clip art – I prefer to create my visuals. I like to explore the visual aspects of design. Discovering the layers of detail that and visual elements of shape, tone, hue, and the combination of all.
Some logo designs can be quite instant – while other logo designs can take longer. For the Irish Guy Productions, I remained with the design – sketching out ideas of some of the different visual aspects that I wanted the logo to have.

3D Logo Design – Background
During the Branding Development for Irish Guy Website Design, Programming and SEO Services the visual guidelines were established. The color palette – Pink, Deep Purple, Rich Reds, Light Gray, and Black was firm! No green or blue.
I typically begin my graphic design projects with black and white sketches. Once the graphic design aspects of the design are strong enough – color is added. It was exciting for me to approach a logo design project from a different direction. Though somewhat nervous too – as graphic designers we train ourselves to follow creative processes. While altering the process can bring about creative insight – the creations may not reach your target.
The Irish Guy logo brief was simple enough. “Draw inspiration from traditional Irish visual. Stay away from the tourist ideas of Ireland (Green, Shamrock, Rainbow, and Leprechauns)”. Personally, I am quite fond of Leprechauns and Garden Gnomes in general.

Drawing inspiration for the Irish Triple Spiral
The Irish Triskele or Triple Spiral has been a great inspiration to me. And has been a part of Irish tradition for as long as anyone can recall. What I love about the Triple Spiral symbol is that depending on who you ask, you may get a different definition of what the three spirals represent. There is something special about a symbol that can represent what you want it to – and still be appreciated and valued by all.
The one understanding that is consistent is that the Triskele design comprises of three similar elements that come together to from one. Irish Guy Website Design, Programming, and SEO Service also share the responsibilities of three similar services that come together to form one web solution. And, so the digital sketching began.
