Intersecting and Excluding

On Photoshop I created a square shape using the pen tool. On the same layer I created another shape which overlapped it. I first had it set to shape, but to allow it to overlap I changed the settings to path.

This screenshot shows the two shapes when the overlapping is excluded.

This screenshot shows the two shapes when the overlapping is intersected, which means the part where both shapes are over each other are coloured in.

Using the pen tool on shape and path mode I created the photo icon as one shape. I used combine to stop the triangles excluding.

DPI in Photoshop

I produced 3 quick black and white logos with a resolution of 72 dots per inch. The logos were created following my own identity. The logos I made were based on mystical and ancient structures and weapons.


This logo was created trying to capture the image of war. It features two arrows crossed over each other.


With this logo I tried to capture strength by drawing a sword in a rock.


With this logo I tried to create something powerful and magical, so I made an orb.


Then I produced 3 more quick logos with a resolution of 300 DPI.


This logo is of a castle door where I tried to capture secureness. To show that I kept the doors closed. If they were open it would not work as I think that feels welcoming.


This logo is supposed to show a castle logo in the most basic way possible. I thought that the castle walls would show that the most because of the common structure.


In this logo I tried to make a basic sword which is supposed to represent power. I think a showing that with a sword works very well because swords are strong mighty weapons.

Dpi recap (optional video) if you weren’t sure on anything covered in the first 2
Using the concepts covered in those videos you need to create 3 small pieces of work (15mins each). Choose 3 of the 12 sketches you did as homework (the iconic images/objects that you might include in a logo). For each of your selected 3 images; –
produce a quick, simple black and white digital logo (don’t worry about making them pretty) -use the brush tool ONLY (you will need to change the brush size) -each image is to be 1inch square -the first image must be 72dpi, the second 150dpi and the last 300dpi
If you are struggling with finishing your QUICK logos you need to move one. Learning about vector Vectors (pen tool) in photoshop I’d now like you to try making a vector version of another of your 12 images (1inch square, 150dpi)

Image Logo Ideas

Some musical images I may use to help develop my logo are of guitars and drums. I chose these because of the perspective of the images and that they are my favourite instruments.

Another idea I have for my logo I’m going to create is of castle structures, which implies my fantasy-gothic style of gaming. Those styles of games are my favourite which is why I think making a logo like that will strongly represent myself. The doors, swords or the walls are what I’m most likely to use as lot’s of different creative designs can be implemented on them.

Another fantasy style logo I may create will have more of a mystical element towards it. The following images are from The Elders Scrolls where is shows the pictogram for multiple spells within the games. The orbs are very magical so I think this design could be very interesting.
