Lion Head G Logo Design
G Logo Design Project
Innergrit (Inner Grit) contacted me to create an emblem for their business. They were keen to combine an animal with either the ‘I’ or ‘G’ letterform from their name.
We decided that it would be better to use the ‘G’ letter as an ‘I’ is overly simple a shape to work with realistically to incorporate the animal element (unless it was a snake or similar of course) . I felt that the “I” would get lost within the design because of the detail required to represent the animal element.
So that was the challenge, how to create a combination of an animal and a ‘G’ letter, and what animal should we use.
After much experimentation and research looking into what different animals represent in different cultures I settled on a Lion.
The thought process for this was two-fold, firstly the lion is widely regarded as representing courage and strength which is what ‘Inner Grit’ also represents (an inner courage and toughness). Secondly I knew that the ‘G’ letter shape would be well suited to combine with a lion head because of the head shape and mane.
When you look at a lion from the side the face area is relatively small but because of the full mane (on a male lion) the head can appear quite large and I felt that I could use this flowing mane to create the other aspects of the ‘G’ letter.
Once I had this concept I knew I had the right solution and it was just a matter of refining that into a clean simple emblem with just the right level of detail.
