How jdagogo started their logo design journey

Company name

blastfactory (blastfactory.com) or BlastFactory

Overview

web entrepreneur giving 99 designs a try. this is a bit of a science experiment but i'm really interested in seeing who i meet and what they come up with. i create digital media startups and am thinking about using a domain i've owned forever, blastfactory, as my umbrella brand

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

vc's, entertainment companies, potential strategic partners, talent.

i bridge the gap of entertainment and technology so the id/logo must be smart, clean, irreverent, and have energy.

clever but not trendy.

smart

Requirements

i think of the blastfactory brand as an umbrella for the many startups i create. the logo/id should be fun, and both retro and futuristic. modern. think of the term "blast" not so much as an explosion, but more like spontaneous fun and innovation. lightning bolt.

i have a vision for the brand that you may embrace or take in a totally different direction: envision the smokestacks from a 1940's industrial factory. think about the sweaty guy who is working in the factory with a big hammer stamping iron. now, as he takes the hammer to the stamp, envision a clown's face on the stamp. alternatively, or related, think of the smoke coming out the stacks. instead of plain smoke, imagine if the smoke coming out of the industrial stacks were in the shape of a smiling clown's face. a bit like crusty the clown. a bit whimsical.

this vision could be a future animation that works with the id. or not.

think mad scientist

creativity of new ideas. -that's what blastfactory must embody.

i'm open to new ideas on this.

NOTE: 12/16

Too many of you are making this too much about an explosion even though i've tried to steer you away from this. SO let me state this again: STAY AWAY FROM EXPLOSION theme.

think vintage NASA. .. . old school space stuff. . . look at the old-school space shuttle logos - early aeronautics. twa/pan am

Think lift-off. . .

keep it simple. . .
