Red Door Gallery: Logo Designs
This was a class assignment wherein I was asked to create a minimum of eight logos that could potentially represent a photography gallery and exhibition that was scheduled to be displayed on campus.
The Creative Process
The gallery was named the Red Door Gallery because it was set to take place in one of the art buildings on campus that is somewhat notorious for having red doors throughout the structure, a feature that is unique to it alone. This encouraged me to take a very literal approach to some of my logo designs through the representation of a red door in most, if not all, of them.
However, I didn’t want to make all of them quite so literal. So I started to play with imagery that is more representative of photography and cameras, such as lightning for a camera flash, a lens, and a shutter with the red door aspect being represented by color alone.
The End Result
The end result of the project is a series of eleven logos, some of which are variations on each other. Some are more literal interpretations of the gallery’s theme and namesake and others are more representative of photography, with a significantly weaker focus on red doors at all.
