Bicycleray™ Logo Series: Finale

Ray has decided on a logo and color combo! In his original request, Ray sent us an image of Chip, perched in the wheel of his bike. This was Chip’s favorite place to relax and take in the scenery in Ray’s bike garage. So, we did exactly that, perched him in the wheel!

The typeface used in the logo is Metro Script by Michael Doret.
We can’t wait until his personalized truck is finished, up and running and visiting you!

Bicycleray™ Logo Series: Part Three

So, in Part Three of the Bicycleray™ Logo Series, we’ve got Chip going. Craig’s hand is probably bleeding at this point! He’s done over 150 “Chip” illustrations to show his diversity. Pretty impressive.

We’ve included as part of this series our process, sketch, sketch and more sketching. Then computer production, maybe, if your sketches are complete. We usually choose 10-15 sketches to comp on the computer, see where that development takes the logo and then refine until there are only 3-4. We also design in black only for the first few revisions. As you probably already know, if it doesn’t work in black, it doesn’t work.

Bicycleray™ Logo Series: Part Two

Stan Can Design™ employed the help of Craig Duerksen of TMCC to develop the character of Chip, Bicycleray’s iconic bird. Below are just just a few of the hundreds of sketches he came up with for parrotlet. bicycleray sketch

Bicycleray™ Logo Series: Part One

This week, Stan Can Design™ was given the challenge of developing a logo around “Chip”. Chip is a parrotlet, a small bird part of a group of the smallest New World parrot species. Here is the picture that Chip’s owner, Ray sent over for inspiration. Check back in a couple days for the latest installment in this series.


I’m a FagDiva™

“I am not a fag hag, I am a fag diva.” Those are the first words Beth Luna said during our meeting to discuss her latest and greatest project, Fag Diva, (trade marked of course). Watching the Keeping up with the Kardashians at home one weekend, Beth discovered that Kim had trademarked and developed a business for the term “Momager,” mom+manager. She thought to herself, “I can do that,” and did. She decided it was time to stop calling herself a fag hag, (a straight girl who has a best friend who is gay and spends a lot of time together ) and let women around the world know that they don’t have to succumb to that term anymore.

After running the brand idea through our processes we decided that a word mark that proudly announces the new term would best serve the clients needs. The final design has just the right amount of distinctive character, whimsy and pizzaz.
