I was recently interviewed at The Logo Creative, and was asked “What was the first ever logo you designed?”
To find my first logo, I went to the workbook from my first ever graphic design class.
I was 15 at the time, and the logo was designed for a fictional watch company called “Time Flies Watch Co.” My solution seems to be some sort of flying watch, with an attempt at using negative space.
As we were all beginners at some point, I thought it would be interesting to see the first logo design from other respected logo designers, in the hopes of inspiring others to keep practicing their craft.
A big thanks for sharing your first logo: Von Glitschka, Josiah Jost, Sean Farrell, Kevin Burr, Logoholik, Jerron Ames, David Airey, Mike Erickson and Raja Sandhu!
