CARTOON LOGOS - THE RIGHT WAY
As a logo design company we receive a great many requests for cartoon logos. We love cartoons and we believe that a cartoon logo is one of the most powerful ways to brand your business, but the truth is that the normal approach to logo design just does not cut it when it comes to cartoons.
The problem is that computers graphics are normally built up of geometric shapes which are then manipulated to create a specific effect. This is especially true in logo design. But cartoon design - the proper kind - requires free, organic shapes and lines.
So we developed a system for cartoon logos:
We start with a pencil and a piece of paper. Only when the cartoon is the way the client wants do we move to the digital phase where it's cleaned up, colored and the text is added.
This worked so well that we decided our cartoon logos deserved it's own web site: CartoonBall.com.
