AIM: To establish a personal mark with three different reference from the designer.
ANCESTRAL BACKGROUND > PHILIPPINES
I started of with the Philippine flag as one of the main focal point on my design, this is where I was born and lived for thirteen years. The 3 rectangular strips represent my flag with pointy edges to have a robust and manliness impression. Since I have the same birthday with Jesus I took this idea from the bible as Jesus’s birth is signaled by a 3 bright star to the 3 wise men heralding the new birth of the saviour. Moreover, it also repsresents the three main geographical islands group in the Philippines. I’ve used the colours red and blue not only to represent the colours of the flag but also my favored colours. Blue represents my characteristic being quiet at times, and dependable. Yellow strip symbolises my happiness for travelling whilst red for confidence.
I have used the 2 speakers and a bass which are placed in the middle and a microphone on the top to symbolise my passion for music and sound. I have used medium gradient tone so it would not take over the other colours and so they are harmonious and more visual pleasing.
I made an aeroplane shape of the whole graphic mark to represent my interest of travelling in to different countries. I applied light gradient tone on both wings to have a glossy and shiny effect. Enclosing the whole mark is a lozenge that symbolises my strength and uniqueness. Black recalls of my dark side being moody and hopeless in some ways. Moreover it also gives a sophisticated and elegant effect to the whole graphic mark.
