Blackball Design Logo
When I came up with the design, I was looking for something minimalistic, yet eye-catching. My chosen name already gave me a good contrast of black and white, all I needed to do was to come up with a design that I thought looked good. The logo had a few variations of it made before I finally settled on my first design. From there, I added some additional effects to make it stand out more, such as a slight gradient on the ball, a drop shadow on the text to help it stand out more and a few adjustments to the text colour to make it more readable on the dark background.
