UPDATE: I've just added images of a marmoset at the bottom of the brief. Thanks again!
Hi! My name's Malik and I moonlight as a(n amateur and/or aspiring) photographer, animator, filmmaker and stand up comedian. I toil away during the day working as a journalist in the news animation business.
I was hoping to create a brand that encapsulated all of the (marginally) creative things I get up to outside of work.
While I currently take portrait photography, edit videos and attempt to learn motion graphics and animation for shits and giggles, I hope that over the next few years I learn enough to hopefully have the ability to create content that's halfway compelling enough for somebody to offer me some shekels in exchange. Failing that, I'd probably settle for a half-eaten Shake Shack burger.
What I'm hoping to convey with the logo of my brand (Marmight) is a sense of humor and craftsmanship.
The name "Marmight" doesn't have any particularly inspiring provenance. I just thought it was a simple, chuckle-worthy pun that could be visualized in an interesting way.
The only real suggestion here is to have a marmoset in the logo and to make it look (in some way) "mighty". If you feel you've got a better way of encapsulating the above ideas, though, please go for it!
Visually, I'm hoping for something that's simple (perhaps even to the point of abstraction) and stands out.
- The face of an imposing-looking (i.e. low angle camera, shadow cast over it's face, intense gaze aimed at the viewer) marmoset
- A marmoset in front of the top of a drum set, holding two sticks in the air (as if about to lay down a powerful solo)
- A marmoset with beefy arms
- An imposing looking marmoset in a suit
Thanks a bunch for taking the challenge and I look forward with bated breath as to what you gals and guys can come up with. Hopefully my creative output can some day match the no doubt awesome logo I end up with.
