I guess when you are a young artist/designer, you are always so ambitious to start “a design studio” or “an art group” (whatever that might be) with your close friends. Does that sound familiar to you, or was it just me? I was no exception. Here is the logo I did in 2004 for an art/design duo, Yaki Ika (grilled squid in Japanese) that my friend and I wanted to form together.
Off course, we kind of talked about it and were somewhat excited about it, but we never did anything as a duo. I wanted to name the duo Yaki Ika just because it sounded foreign and unique (man, all this nonsensical young mind BS) for the duo. Now when I look at the logo, I still like it although I question why I didn’t connect the lines in some places.
