day 1 - hangover - Ok, the project has officially started (super excited :) ).
We had a great time last night, but right now situation is kinda dif.. :) so i`ll keep it short.
Happy New Year, ppl! I wish you all the best! Cheers! http://365logoproject.posterous.com/ https://twitter.com/365logoproject
day 2 - hot soup - I had something dif in mind for today, but after amazingly cozy & warm feel that one plain soup was caused i`ve changed my mind instantly. Rehabilitation process.. :) I hope you had a great 2nd NY`s eve as well. http://365logoproject.posterous.com/ https://twitter.com/365logoproject
day 3 - back to work - Ye, i know it`s Sunday, but what you can do? :) I have some icons to work on, need to start on a new logotype, need to prepare last concept for the other project..i`m sure there`s some more.. http://365logoproject.posterous.com/ https://twitter.com/365logoproject
day 4 - pet squirrel.jpg - Gf and i wanna buy 2 squirrels. Canadian, Siberian, chipmunks, anything except albino :) and Chilean squirrels (degu). Anyone has any experience with them? http://365logoproject.posterous.com/ https://twitter.com/365logoproject
day 5 - haircutime - Yep, it`s time..i always say that i`ll go every week, but somehow i go every 2nd or even 3rd week. I`m really having a hard time to make that commitment which is funny cuz i simply can not stand longer hair anymore. http://365logoproject.posterous.com/ https://twitter.com/365logoproject
day 6 - xmas eve - The Coptic, Serbian (nice to meet you:)), Russian, Macedonian, and Georgian Orthodox Churches, as well as the Greek Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, use the Julian calendar, which is currently thirteen days behind the Gregorian calendar, so Christmas Eve for the adherents of those Churches coincides with January 6 of the following year in the Gregorian calendar. Wikipedia surely can explain this much more better than me :) Merry Xmas Eve to all those who celebrate today!
day 7 - xmas song - Merry Xmas to all those who celebrate today!
day 8 - get organized - Nice and easy to do, eh? :)
day 9 - break - Timeout. Have a nice weekend!
day 10 - mtf sunday - Even if is not exactly the first weekend since this project has began i`m still feeling it as a one small milestone. 10 days, 10 logos, new week..
day 11 - bath vs shower - I guess i`ve already said which one i prefer. In a new apartment i have only shower and is driving me crazy..quite often. I really miss my bath from the previous place and i`m thinking to move mainly cuz of it. Crazy? Which one do you prefer?
Concept: It`s quite simple and straight forward here. I`ve connected the common thinking bubble shape with the bath (and bubbles) into the one to portray the state of the missing and thinking about the bathtub.
day 12 - healthy foods - There`s no chance that i can become a vegetarian (i like the meat way too much), but surely i wanna start thinking more about my nutrition and include some more healthier products.
day 13 - creative role - I know that toilet is kinda special place for almost everyone..sacred place..for some ppl even very creative place. I guess i`m one of them. This is exactly the same set up i have there. It`s like regular and common toilet equipment. Maybe funny, but lots of mine ideas are coming from there.. How about you? Drawing, reading, surfing, twitting from there? :)
day 14 - slow 2day.. - ..yet.. lot to do.. will see how that goes..
day 15 - 4h8 - Wind-up & play.
"Lead, follow, or get out of the way. Haters are trying to stop things from happening. They don`t follow and they certainly don`t lead. But the haters will fall away. Theyâ€™ll find someone else when they realize they canâ€™t stop you."
Funny, but i`ve stumbled upon this cool article 20 mins after posting this design today.
day 20 - lucky love - There`s no special inspiration for this one.. unfortunately.. just a fun idea..
day 21 - snowing.. again.. - 365logoproject.posterous.com
day 22 - help haiti - Small contribution to this terrible disaster.
day 23 - memory - I`ve just got in and almost went to bed.. one more beer and i would completely forgot design for today. :/ It`s over midnight here, so this is 15 mins work. Sorry for that. :)
day 24 - empty - One of those days when you just want to sleep over. However, working on this design helped me to get in a better mood which can be seen from the colors i guess.. How`s your sunday going?
day 25 - a site, dude! - Yep. Finally! I`m really feeling like i`ve grown up a bit more today. There`s still a lot to change, move, tweak and touch, but landing page is finally up. www.wizemark.com
day 26 - bookshelf - I`ve been making a bookshelf design for my studio today.. quite exhausting process. Admiring now the guys who`re projecting buildings and such. Anyhow, it`ll look something like this.
day 27 - expanding business - Had a very first (i`d say successful) meeting with a client today, but about my photography services.
Concept: Expanded dollar sign where left middle stem is forming an letter E (first initial) with the 3 horizontal lines and a small ladders to portray grow and a path for the extension.
day 33 - heart work - Having some awful, spasmodic feel a whole day.. hard work equal heart work? :)
day 34 - rip, production - Yesterday i saw 4 logos using film reel/tape, apparently `done for fun`, today i saw another 3.. a new trend? All kind of smart `productions`.. there were elephants in logos, monkeys, quotes, awesomely eggxecuted egg logos.. seems that production/film tape/reel is the new trend and next one on the list that should be killed and explored to death. :(
day 35 - creative crossroad - Had a cool and unexpected meeting today with a senior designer who works at EXIT festival - http://eng.exitfest.org/ . They wanna hire me, but as a full time job. Now, this is an awesome offer. I`m going on that festival for the last 10 years constantly and this would be really an honor working with guys over there. They`re producing some amazing design. But, full time is kinda bothers me cuz i`d have to almost completely... 365logoproject.posterous.com/day-35-creative-crossroad
365LP collabo [january] - Terrorism feat. Anthony Lane - http://365logoproject.posterous.com/365lp-collabo-january-terrorism-feat-anthony
day 37 - photo session 24/7 - Ok, first time to late with daily designs.. 2 days now... here`s first design for the Saturday, feb 06. Quite a big photo project is starting tomorrow with a STIFF deadline..so i`ve almost just got in and it`s over midnight.. i`ll be in studio 10-15hrs daily so excuse for late designs, b&w designs, etc.. :) Once this chaos is done, will get back to the daily routine..
day 38 - wize lizard - I`ve started designing under WizeLizard alias and never had a logo that i was really happy with. I wish i had something like this back then and i wish i have this many useful `hands` right now.. :)
day 39 - loading models - Still waiting on some models, client confirmations, test shots, etc..
Logo is using simplified Ring Light shape inside an eye as an reflection and common `loading` circle symbol..
day 40 - photo break - Ok.. daily designs are all up now.. today and tomorrow we have some short break regarding set, time to catch up with all design stuff now..
I hope that is clear that camera is hanged on the wall to portray break.. Btw, usually i never use shadow in my designs.. but this time i thought that subtle shadow can add more of an depth to this simple design..
day 41 - hate 2 wait mails - Don`t you just hate when they take their time to reply on something trivial, but important? Especially when you make a statement that you need to proceed with that asap.. sigh
day 47 - creative brief - To all clients out there.. Take your time, put some good and creative brief together. It really IS important for your project to be successful. Otherwise, it`s unfair to expect to see your vision matched..
p.s. i`m sorry for using so often pencils in my designs, but it`s kinda expected to see that from a designer and his daily routine, right? :p
day 48 - wasted day - Lots of discussion, unclear visions & directions, repeated stuff, misunderstandings.. a completely wasted day.. now i need that bathtub which i don`t have in this place, now i need strong connection which isn`t the case today..a great day. Yay!
day 49 - rip-off - Some of you may already know, some don`t, but i`ve got ripped off among some other designers. I`ve been given that link today...
day 50 - 50 days - 50 days and counting.. This is like 1/7 of the year already.. damn.. that was quick..
day 51 - moving again? - Seems that gf & I will gonna move again. Hate that. When you finally buy everything you want and need you should move, so every next time you have a lot more stuff than the previous time and, naturally, more work to do. Being on rent is really a pain in the ass. At least, we`ll have a bathtub again, aside from a bloody shower and 3rd room.. woohoo :| 365logoproject.posterous.com/day-51-moving-again
day 52 - fat death & cruelly kingdom - Was looking some disgusting documentary about food industry. What`s even worse is that seems that ppl don`t even care what they eat and how food affects on their health and life. Couldn`t think off anything better regarding the name. Maybe fast would be more appropriate? 365logoproject.posterous.com/day-52-fat-death-and-cruelly-kingdom
day 53 - hbd, mom - Being only child and not having my own kids yet means that there isn`t many, really close, persons on this world that i really, really still care about. One of those that i do care about is, of course, my mom. Happy b-day, Z! ;) 365logoproject.posterous.com/day-53-hbd-mom
day 54 - deadtech.rip - One of the PC`s is dead. Is it finally time to switch on a Mac? :)
day 55 - barker - Is there anything good or productive to come out from barking? I really don`t think it`s possible to resolve anything with such a approach. But again, i can kinda understand those ppl. Doesn`t matter if you`re still < than the barking subject, you gotta get attention somehow and fight for your sensitive and special needs and feelings.
day 57 - giving up - “Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.“
day 58 - designers attitude - What does it mean being complete and good designer? Can be that measured only by the success and `fame`? Good eye for design and some skills? Is it nice portfolio enough? Do you perhaps need to be a human as well? To know how to react, advice, discuss, help, listen and behave? Would you hire someone who have some successful projects behind, nice folio up and some `name`, but it`s having shitty attitude and it`s acting like a prick all the time? I know i wouldn`t.
day 59 - doubt - In everything. This project, work, relations.. it has to do with the recent plans about moving, new month, new projects, `slow` processing .. It`s good to be in such a state from time to time i guess cuz it force you to look at the things once again, from some dif perspectives..but it knows to be such a weight sometimes..
day 60 - nuff - Enough with the late working nights cuz of the time zones, enough with the working weekends, enough with the 12+ hrs per day. Now, i know that most likely it won`t be always possible to go by these rules, but i`ll be def trying to keep the work to 5 days per week, 9-5, as every normal person. Will see how that goes..
day 61 - back in program - Lads and Gents, broadcasting live again..
day 68 - scared client - I`ve never been asked so much q`s. How, what if, where, when, and if i, will you, how this is, and what if there`s.. huh. Maybe it`s best to pass this one.. Btw, snake should be a tie-like shape..

day 109 - TRend - Trends come and go. That`s the fact. But nonetheless, it certainly is a nice feel when someone as the mighty Logo Lounge pick one of your designs for their annual Logo Trends Report. (category: Peepshow :| , name: MonkVibe).
day 112 - daily distractions - Since i haven`t boughten yet all those fancy tech devices that helps you (a lot) in those brainless activities such as dish washing and since my gf is still away i`m thinking to redesign my shopping list.. No one should do those things. Using hands, that is.
