Chinatown Film Festival.

The Chinatown Film Festival held a logo contest. There was scholarship prize money, so I entered. Plus, I had nothing better to do over the summer and I had a new tablet I wanted to play with. So, I pulled up Photoshop and worked on this for a few days.

I decided to go for a Chinese chop sort of look. We were also required to include a dragon or a phoenix somewhere.

Anyway, I didn't win, which isn't a big deal. I was told that I was in the top 15 out of the 600-some entries, though. I'm not sure if they just said that to everyone who didn't win. I mean, how would we know if they were lying? They ended up choosing another design that was much more graphic and business logo-y. Hey, if that's what they're into.

Is it Sunday already? I really need to get back on that Illustration Friday and Illustration Friday Night goodness.


  1. really dig your design - way more hitting than the corporate logo they selected

  2. Design is good but it has 3 claws which represents Triads so I think they may have gotten into bother if they had have used it
