How SeeDesine came to be – The logo
Whew, it's been a while since you last heard from us. We've been pretty busy with a couple of surprises SeeDesine is ready to share with you but we'll talk about this later. The only thing we can tell you is that we can't wait to reveal them and we hope our enthusiasm will be contagious.
As the title suggests, I'd like to end the story of SeeDesine on a high note. The story of the logo itself will come out and I'd like you to understand why ours and logos, generally speaking, are so important for a company.
To make a little summary, the term “SeeDesine” comes from the former “ChrissDesign” and it is desired to be pronounced siːdıˈzaın just like “See Design”. “See” would stand for the Criss' letter C and “Desine” for Design. It looks complicated but it doesn't sound like that. We had a single thing in mind: thinking out of the box. And it was the same principle that guided us when choosing the color palette.
So, you already know the winner but still… why blue? I'm sure Cristian would blush if I'd say that we chose this color because of his eyes but we really wanted a color that is one of trust, honesty and loyalty, a color that exhibits inner security and confidence. It is widely known that blue color reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order - we certainly feel a sense of calm if we lie on our backs and look into a bright blue cloudless sky. As you can see most of this color's attributes are the main qualities we rely on when doing our job so it suits SeeDesine pretty well.
Getting rid of the color's problem, in the second part of “How SeeDesine came to be” I told you that we hired one of our friends, Bogdan L. , to create the logo itself. It's not that we couldn't have done it but we have a saying in Romania roughly translated as “Don`t do what the priest does, do what the priest says” so we hired a real professional regarding logos. Good, we had the main color, the man to draw it but we needed at least a shape to start from. I had a horrible idea that looked like this:
and it was horrible due to my horrible drawing skills. That was when Bogdan, after a week of magic and countless versions came up with the final version, the version you can actually admire everywhere you look for SeeDesine.
At a first glance, it looks like a simple plain logo with an artistic little brush added for the effect. Truth is that we really want you to believe that web design can be art sometimes and it really takes time and patience, let alone inspiration to deliver what a client requested. These are what drive a painter to produce art and we hope to reach that level when someone will say that one of our websites is pure art. Only then we'll rest. Until then, ain't nobody got time for rest. Back to work!
PS – Oh, I almost forgot. Stay tuned for the news!!!
