Personal design for a new side project. Thought I'd begin the new year with a new project. Therefore I've came up with Amalgamation Blog.
Unlike other blogs which are more niched into one or two areas of content I wanted to make Amalgamation Blog just a little bit of everything, just a big old mixture of things I like, see, do or enjoy. A creative hub of sorts.
For the logo I was vibing off making the type evoke the look of a an old lava lamp. Thinking of the concoction held within and how it moves around each other. I drew out the idea initially before redrawing the logo in illustrator. Keeping it simple yet bold and fun, something you can recognise but wont detract from the content which is the core element of a blog.
Along with the logo I designed up some GIF artwork for specific sections or post of the blog. Such as Music Mondays & Film Fridays. I also tweaked up a web temp for the blogs main website.
