This logo was fun to build and includes many different features. The structure and shape resembles a house and is constructed out of the initials of the app name, M+G (My Garage). The lines used to highlight these initials are meant to represent structure and underlining, the mechanics of the build. They are also meant to visually resemble paint on road. The background is texturized to resemble concrete and road asphalt, elements relatable to this apps concept and subject matter. Hard lines, gritty texture, dark colors all contribute to the mood and visual atmosphere desired to pump up this app. To express the phantom experience of getting down and dirty fixing and driving your beloved vehicle.
The typeface used in this app, Scout, is a modern clean san serif that imbues efficiency and technicality.
The color palette used to describe My Garage pulls from elements of the road (ie. pavement, asphalt, paint) and mixes with shades of purple. Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The color purple is often associated with royalty, luxury, power, and ambition. These are fierce emotions and associations. Can we not say we have felt similarly about a favorite vehicle?
