Sometimes I find myself in a rut, busy working, but creatively stunted. Its times like these when I turn to my favorite friend…the panda for some cheering up! Looking at pictures of them always makes me laugh and feel good. I had an opportunity to do just this when a friend of mine recently starting working Seattle based indie band Pocket Panda
. She asked if I could help re-design their logo and I figured why not give it a go. I LOVE pandas, and well pockets are just functional. I came up with a design loosely based off of their previous logo, but slightly updated and fresher. I used a found font and manipulated it to have a looser feel that sort resembled the cord of a microphone. I added my own little panda in a pocket illustration and VOILA!
