Here is UH West Shah’s ext logo! So, first I started off with the Poe. Knew that making the bird too fancy would ruin the overall quality of the logo itself, so I made sure the shapes and lines used were simple. The face included curved eyes and a beak, with layers of inner heart-like shapes that form into the body. The oval shape around it is the outer body that connects with the wings of the Poe. Being that was going for simplicity, leaving the wings alone with no feathers needed was the way to go.
The second portion of the logo included a big W hat forms into 3 letters at once, W U and H. The W is the most obvious, with simple transformation methods under, “reflection”, to easily connect both sides of the letter and form a perfect W. This, along with the owl and background, has the most body of color because I feel they are the most important figures in the logo. The W represents the western side of our island and differentiates us from University of Hawaii at Mania.
The color theme I went with was a darkish red and white because those are our school lord. With in the middle forms an H, from the spaces between the W and the Poe. This is where I felt most creative, by combining two major ideas into one. During my sketching process, I drew both an individual owl and a big W, thinking either one would be good to use. I then thought of an idea to implement both logos into one, showing more detail towards the overall picture. The circular background, felt, was a good way to make the logo seem more professional.
It’s a good way to make people feel like our university is complete, with no rough edges and a smooth curve to success. My unique achievement that I was going for through this image is the overall feeling of the picture. I tried to make a logo that didn’t just look cool, but also have meaning behind it. The Poe is flying in my logo, meaning it’s capability to succeed is past the moon and beyond the stars. The direction of going up means to stay positive and always prepare for what will happen next in your life.
Its wings are spread open, meaning our university provides a broad mount Of options that can interest anybody who attends here and pursue their dreams. Every little detail created in this picture is to help influence people that our university is the right choice for them. My logo turned out to be a success. I feel like the image itself is simple, and the meaning behind it is very influential. The color, lines, shapes and everything else used all had it’s unique purposes to help the picture come to life. I’m satisfied with what have created, and I hope you are too. Thanks!
