Logo Design Process and Walkthrough for BioThemes This post was originally published in 2011 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. It must be well over a year since I created the BioThemes logo, but the BioThemes website has finally launched with a bang so I thought I’d pull out my logo design to share my design process with you guys and girls. The BioThemes logo was pretty different to the majority of logos I’ve worked on in the past, which made it a super interesting project. John O’Nolan and Gilbert Pellegrom are the guys behind BioThemes. View the BioThemes logo design Unlike most of my logo designs, the BioThemes logo was build in Photoshop at super large dimensions. The flat leaf shape was then transformed using the Warp function in Photoshop. All four corners were moved together and the handles stretched out to form a typical leaf shape.

10 Easy Secrets To Quickly Become A Great Designer | Artyst Tyrant Blog - Design, Marketing, and Motivation for Conquering Your Business Goals Average Doesn’t Cut It Anymore There was a time, not so long ago, when business was good for designers.
