Mood board

Concept behind mark
The mark is 2 documents overlapping on each other with the shadow.

Blockchain is a decentralized technology which is a growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked using cryptography. Each block contains a cryptographic hash of the previous block, a timestamp, and transaction data. all nodes are connected in blockchain.

we live in a world with shadows. shadow is a big part of reality. It make thing feel & look real. also used to add three dimensional effect to the marks. It conveys the image of dimension. it appeals to the user as complete.

After concepting. moved forward with initial sketches on paper pencil. then moved that sketches in software and made then in gray scale with the help of wacom tablet. then shared with client. after getting feedback and chosen option. i moved forward with griding.

Shades blue color shades symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and loyalty, trust. blue  is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness.

Spacing Around Logo
Dossier logo or mark only should be surrounded with clear space to ensure its visibility and impact. No graphic 
elements of any kind should invade this zone. 

Clear space is developed from the height of the 3 column grid box which is used to design the logo and is shown as “0.5x”.
