The head of an ultimate frisbee team in Georgia recently commissioned me to design the logo for their new team, the Cockpit Terriers. They gave me a tight turnaround time but a lot of creative freedom. Below is the process. Notebook sketches were done and then captured onto my iPad. Apple Pencil and I made the final version.
And if you're wondering, the name came from (as I was), here's your answer: a guy on the team has a terrier. That root word was put into a word generator. "Cockpit Terrier sounds kinda cool and has good logo possibilities!"
