Luckily I found the time to work on this logo. I think that for most of us designers "pixelbox" is a very thankfull name.
There's plenty of possibilities with that name. That's why I didn't want to design anything too obvious. After a few sketches in my book, I got really stuck. You know, you design something but it's just not that. Certainly when you start working with basic shapes, it's hard to make a logo any special.
It's always a good idea to analyze your doodles after a first brainstorm. That's how it worked for this logo. Here comes the concept!Concept
An important keyword in this design is consistency.
Weither you take a photo of a landscape, a portrait, event ... it's always a combination of your quality as a photographer (technically and emotionaly) and a moment. A moment in time, but also a moment you got an *idea*.
The pixels around the box represent the combination of technical skills, those moments you get the chance to capture an idea in a picture.The colors
The inside is the result of the outside. It's colored orange, it's warm, emotional. It looks more natural then it's outside. It's outside was the technical part remember (that's why it's black).
I hope I managed to explain this a bit ... I'm sure that I'm still rather unclear, as my english can be a bit messy when i'm so tired. Make sure to check monday (I'm not home this weekend + no PC) for a nice and fresh explanation. It'll say the same stuff, but only easier to read ... and hopefully more clear. After people gave me feedback, I edited my logo, you can see the result in the link bellow.
