A Logo design for an fictional barber shop.
To start off I sketched out about seven different logo ideas for this company and then chose three to refine. I took a picture of the sketches and imported it into Illustrator. I used the pen tool to trace my sketches and refine the edges to make everything crisp and clean. I then took a vote on the three different refined logos to determine which one people like the best. I then took their suggestions and chose the barber shop type logo to make the final for the company. I refined the logo even more taking into account spacing, typography, and color schemes. I formatted the logo to work well in black and white, in color, and in white on color.
