Logo Draft 01 / Ideation
Logo Draft 02 / Iteration
The final version of the Geared Up Museum logo was inspired by the frame of a bike. During the ideation process I was leaning toward logo ideas which were more specific to distinct types bikes. However the final logo while aesthetically looking cleaner, is also more inclusive of all bikes. The other goal I wanted to achieve with this logo was to be able to give the museum a flexible identity. This was feasible with such an angular and solid structure, such as the bike frame, in the center. The words "Geared", "Up", and "Museum" in motion or in variations are to move around the perimeter of the frame.
