Some days are just like that. A situation arrives and you have to deliver the design fast — really fast, within minutes. Today I am sharing the design story of a poster for the cricket team ‘Throttlers.’
Even during the logo competition for BarCamp Bangalore 9 (BCB9) in August, 2010, I was thinking about the logo for BCB10. BarCamp Bangalore 10 is happening on 11-June-2011 at SAP Labs. Being a fan of films, I have decided to make a typographic logo for BCB10 similar to the title design of the Hollywood flicks X-Men and XXX.
This is my logo that was created as part of the BCB10 logo competition. Click on the image for a larger view. Read on to know more about the design thoughts.
We have designed a logo for Namma Cycle, a Bangalore University Bike Sharing Experiment.
This is essentially a doodle — a single stroke logo — that conveys the idea of a man pedaling a bicycle. I would like to share with you the design process that went behind this logo.
Who is more powerful? Darth Vader or Thor? VW Passat came up with a video that shows a small boy dressed as Darth Vader who manages to start a car using the ‘force’ (How? See the video in the following link). Marvel Comics made a spoof of this for the promotion of the new film ‘Thor.’ I am not spoiling the plot, see the video.

Star Wars are still waged across the galaxy. The questions is: Can you write your own Star Wars story? Or, can you picturize one?

- We often talk about the importance of “negative space” in art direction. Well, how’s this for negative space? http://goo.gl/FAhhY
If you are old and you are involved in a ship wreck, you will be saved first! So says the ad that is trying to spread cancer awareness and the importance of early detection. ‘Live to be old!’

The new edition of Science and Technology Run or SnT Run is happening in IISc Bangalore campus on 6th March, 2011. This story is about the design of SnT Run logo that was introduced since last year.
The first image that comes to my mind when I hear ‘click’ is that of a cursor or a mouse.
But ‘Click’ can also be the sound of somebody taking a photo. If you are using a film camera, the sound comes when the film is exposed by the shutter and the next frame is advanced. In an SLR camera, the sound is generated when the mirror inside the camera rotates to direct the light on to the sensor or film. In a digital camera, the sound is generated electronically to give the ‘feel’ of taking a picture. There is usually a provision to turn OFF the sound.

Recently, I started the surface modeling of a car using CATIA — a 3D Engineering software. Today I am attempting to give a ‘crash course’ on making your own cars in CATIA. If some of you started asking questions on this subject, I will be very happy as my mission is accomplished.
