GO GO LUNAR LOGO

 

Another satisfying design and I’ll tell you why. “Hansen Engineering”, a fictional company of the Reconcilers comic book, needed a logo iconic enough for towers, trucks, shirts and shippers. It’s a mining outfit, so I made the negative-space engineering “E” resemble a drill-bit being driven by the positive-space “H”! As a designer, it was kind of a “FedEx Arrow” moment. Heehee.

HEX'S HAMMER


Sometimes, what looks perfect in the mind’s eye doesn’t work for the real eye. Case in point: the comic book’s hero, Sean Hexhammer, has this signature weapon, see. It’s a hexagonal hammer. Why, you say? Because it’s comics and you can do that. Anyhow, we were going for a hexagonal silhouette, but it looked too much like a mace, and his name’s not Sean Mace, is it? Alright then. So we came up with a more hammery hammer instead.

IGOR'S PERISCOPE

This was part of a much larger collaborative work. My brother Norm brought me into this sci-fi comic book the Reconcilers as a tech designer, oh many a thing did I think up. For instance: this guy, Igor, has a truck. His truck has armor, and when a truck has armor, you need a periscope to see though it all!
