Day & Night Branding

Day & Night Branding

There's a thing I will always do appreciate about  branding is that creating/making a identity takes a lot more process than we always think. When you think of this, you gotta work on the layout, fonts, colours and above all the concept. Once you have that knotted into place, you gotta think about so many packaging items to deal with for which it even becomes more interesting and conceptual work. We would love to share the work from Backbone Branding and branding/packaging for Day & Night Milk concept project. The idea that begins to act as an independent project worth to be produced and implemented into life. The copyright of this concept belongs to Backbone Branding “ArtStep” LLC and is available for obtainment. Day & Night is a concept project that has a bifacial nature that is injected in each of its design elements. The logo expresses the earth’s rotation with its shape symbolizing the change from day to night. The branding concept expresses the restaurant type that serves its dining during the day and the bar starts to act in the night. This duality of the restaurant living is clearly expressed in the pictured animals, illustrated in two different polarities.     About Backbone Backbone is a branding studio currently based in Armenia. Having the word: "Branding" in their company name gives them the essence of focusing their work in branding, illustration and packaging.

Captain America & Tron Concept Designs by Daniel Simon

Captain America & Tron Concept Designs by Daniel Simon

Sci-fi movies are one of my favorite genres because they explore the unknown trying to envision the future. Thinking about the future is not an easy task. There are so many things that we just take for granted and therefore it is hard to imagine how they will look and behave. Daniel Simon is a master of this reality and has created vehicles for movies like Tron Legacy, Captain America, Obvlivion and many more. In this post we will share with you some of these projects, showing artworks and sketches. For more information we highly recommend that you visit Daniel's website at http://danielsimon.com/ Marvel’s Captain America Hydra Parasite The Hydra Parasite is a flying bomb designed for the 2011 Marvel feature film ‘Captain America’, carried by a large Flying Wing in a set of eight. The 2R marking on this early test version defined its spot in the wing, second right. Early concept drawings and models were created to explore the taste of director Joe Johnston. The simplistic teardrop shape on the right got picked (see first image left), with pusher props and a cockpit positioned far back. A futuristic forward facing cockpit was also considered (see second image with design models), but was difficult to film in particular scenes. So the front of the final design turned into the bomb device itself. Counter-rotating twin props were later dropped in favor for a more experimental drive. The Hydra Schmidt Coupé The Hydra Schmidt Coupé is technically a roadster, but was originally designed as a Coupé and never changes its name. Lets just say its stubborn owner Johann Schmidt the Red Skull liked the sound of it. The car was explained in the film script to be the fastest road car of its time. Not due to its aerodynamics but its incredible power – a supercharged, 16 cylinder engine. Together with Director Joe Johnston and Production Designer Rick Heinrichs, we researched Coupés of the 40ies to define the style for this vehicle. At first, I envisioned an extreme car shaped like a 1937 Auto Union Type C streamliner, but I soon understood the film’s director was looking for something classic and upright. A style-blend of a Mercedes 540K, a Mercedes G4 Off roader plus some hints of Bentley and Duesenberg turned out to be the perfect language. Others Disney’s Tron Legacy Disney’s Tron Legacy was a fantastic project to be involved with. I was hired as Concept Vehicle Designer under the supervision and inspiration of director Joe Kosinski and production designer Darren Gilford. Between September 2008 and July 2009 I was responsible to create the final look of various Tron vehicles, including the Light Cycle, the Vintage Light Cycle, the Light Runner, the Light Jets, and a few background vehicles. Working hand in hand with Darren Gilford, set designer Joe Hiura and cutting-edge effect house Digital Domain, this project was a team effort. For the most iconic vehicle of the film, the new Light Cycle, I could based the final look on previously done studies by fellow designers Ryan Church, Harald Belker, Tim Flattery and Ed Natividad. Other machines, like the Vintage Light Cycle or the Tank, are modern re-interpretations of their originals from the 1982 film, created back then by master mind Syd Mead. Sketches
