I spent a large part of my morning pruning my meager bonsai collection which has inspired today’s design. Today I decided to experiment with the Bonsai Today magazine logo. This was a magazine published by Stone Lantern during the 1990’s and 2000’s. The magazine is currently out of print but the publisher manages a website called Bonsai Bark which contains great articles on the sublect. I used to look forward to getting my copy every quarter I believe, or maybe it was every two months, I can’t remember. It was a great magazine and contributed greatly to my bonsai education. Here is a cover from one issue.
I chose to change the typeface and incorporate an icon, which I created, of the silhouette of a bonsai tree. I kept red as the primary color but used a slightly darker version. Shown below are two variations. Tomorrow I will revisit the logo and experiment some more. See you then.
