Flash Aaahh… Logo Fun for Us

On someone’s Facebook timeline last week something Flash Gordon related came up… and then I had the Queen theme song from that 1980s movie stuck in my head. For further logo creation practice, and as an attempt to exorcise the musical demon from my brain, I decided to recreate the logo from that movie!

Flash Gordon Movie Logo

Eagle-eyed fans will note that the proper movie logo design actually has the “Flash Gordon” text in front of the centerpiece. As I was drawing this, I decided I like the look of the logo with the centerpiece overlaying the text instead. So, technically this isn’t a 100% recreation as I put my own spin upon it.

Prototype Shazam! Logo Design

More playing around with my own logo designs… I’m actually surprised to have not seen something like this one before. I’m a fan of DC Comics’ Captain Marvel (Shazam!) character from way back before they owned him.

I cheated a little, because I already had a pretty good lightning bolt for this design from my Flash insignias… and I thought it would look good to use that as the Z in Shazam! Below are a 2D version and a 3D version. The 3D version is closer to what I would consider a final logo design that could just about be considered complete as presented here.Shazam-Prototype

For anyone wondering… I also tried variations with the lightning bolt as an S instead of the Z… and even a design with both letters replaced with lightning bolts. Replacing both letters made the design way too busy, and use of the S instead of the Z really throws off the balance of the design, which works far better with the lightning bolt smack dab in the middle.
