An upcoming solo running event needed a logo and I had less than 24 hours only to come up with one. ‘Unstated requirements’ included a connection to technology and sports. The name ‘iRUN’ was chosen for the event.
Exactly a decade ago, I designed the logo and posters for ‘Science and Technology Run’ (stylized as ‘Snt run’) at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I wanted to take the same inspiration of ‘race tracks in a stadium’ for the ‘iRUN’ logo design as well.
My friend gave me the above slogan for an upcoming YouTube Music Channel in Malayalam.
“I need a logo. Can you help me?”
“Yes, yes. What’s the name of the YouTube Channel?”
“We haven’t named it yet!”
The one who MUST be named!
Kaviprasad is my friend of 20 years. Prasad and I started brainstorming to name the new YouTube channel. The slogan reminded us of a popular Malayalam movie teaser trailer that connects romance, songs and rain. The search for a drink/food that is consumed during a cold rainy season, evoking nostalgia, led us back to the slogan itself — ‘Coffee!’ In Malayalam language, ‘Coffee’ is ‘Kaapi.’

The very first edition of BarCamp Goa is happening on 30-Oct-2011, Sunday at BITS Pilani Goa Campus. When my friend Niju Mohan contacted me for a logo, I jumped and took the opportunity.
Why? Because I love to do a design under a lot of constraints. I believe that this will help me to explore and find innovative solutions. If I am correct, this is my fifth logo for a BarCamp (BarCamp Bangalore 7, Bangalore 8, Bangalore 9 and Kerala 9, Bangalore 10). I have tried to give an individuality to each of them. I suddenly found myself in an ideating mood.
The first image that comes to my mind when I hear ‘click’ is that of a cursor or a mouse.
But ‘Click’ can also be the sound of somebody taking a photo. If you are using a film camera, the sound comes when the film is exposed by the shutter and the next frame is advanced. In an SLR camera, the sound is generated when the mirror inside the camera rotates to direct the light on to the sensor or film. In a digital camera, the sound is generated electronically to give the ‘feel’ of taking a picture. There is usually a provision to turn OFF the sound. FULLfx decided to name his photoblog as ‘Clickography‘ and he entrusted the logo design with me.
