Cloud 9 Too Late

I did this logo for a competition job at 99designs.com. I have just started to look at that option. I figure if I can win a few of them each month it would be a good thing. I haven’t tried before so I don’t really know the competition, but I will figure it out and see how it goes.

I spent some time with the word ‘Cloud’ wrapping around the number ‘9’. The word cloud might make you think of nice and fluffy things, but as a word in type it is just ugly. I messed around with it quite a bit and in the end it didn’t look good on a curved line. ┬áTo make the actual cloud symbol I used three of the 9’s to get the cloudy image then I copied it, moved it down a bit and cut out the symbol. I think it turned out ok.

The only problem with this logo is that I missed the deadline by 2 minutes. I knew it was close and I was working fast to try to get one in, but in the end I didn’t make it so it didn’t even get in to be judged. I am not going to try to do a logo in that kind of deadline again.

Font used in logo: Kozuka Gothic Pro H
