So my dad asked me to come up with a new name and logo for his photography company. After much thought, I came up with Paper Windmill, like those little fans I used to make when I was kid. Its simple, elegant, fun, and definitely something I thought could easily be branded.
After looking up lots of pinwheel pictures online, I started to sketch out what I generally wanted. Luckily, pinwheels are very simple so it didn’t take too long to figure out what I wanted it to look like.
2. Draw it in Illustrator.
So once it was sketched out, I started drawing it in Illustrator. I wanted it perfectly symmetrical so it was just a matter of drawing one blade, duplicating it, and finally repositioning it. Eventually I got something I was pretty happy with.
3. Add some colour.
Once I established the shape, I started to mess around with colours and its positioning. But it wasn’t quite right.
4. Refine it. Add depth. Choose nice colours.
Eventually I went back to changing its shape to something more curvy and organic. Applied shadows. Then gave it some vivid colours.
5. Take a moment.
I like it!
7. Gain dad’s approval. Relax.
Success! Rest easy. Watch Parks and Rec.

Imagine is a short film created by Jack Phillips, myself, and classmates from Centennial College. This project was very fun to shoot and I have to thank the entire cast and crew for making it so enjoyable. This was the first time Jack and I actually held a casting call and we were so pleased to have Romaine, Carys, and Mac on board with our little project. My friend Aaron, a talented musician, was kind enough to write us an original score for our short. You can find the download links after the video. Also, be sure to follow Aaron Brandolino on facebook for more great music.

Skateboarding is cool. The snakes are even cooler.
As good as these look, they never really landed it in any of the pictures. Too bad.
