Another small project, this time involving a local eatery based around a Harry Potter theme. The restaurant, after facing a backlash from Warner Bros, had to rebrand at short notice. This is one of those projects where the client gave us too many directions, thereby limiting the creative freedom that we so like to exercise.
Our love for 2D illustrations and the client's inclinations and literal interpretations resulted in us creating a flat version of the final logo at first. However, upon request, we went on to convert the same design into a 3D logo.
By using the 2D illustration as a guide layer, we went ahead and created a cauldron and used simple boolean operations to get the desired look. Wood pieces, despite being physically scanned one's and having too much detail to them, turned out well.
