This work is a freelance company logo design for Beijing Legend of Wolf Media Company. I started from searching wolf running/jumping images and studied movements/poses of wolf.
My 1st design draft for symbolized and simplified wolf graphic. Not very happy with harsh lines and corners.
I inspired from MoGao Caves Paintings. The curvature of lines is very elegant and delivery a strong sense of levitation. And there are many symbols I can borrow from, such as lotus, pattern of fire, clouds, etc.
Adding curvatures and hand-drawing style lines to show the feeling of speed. Used some fire symbols from cave paintings in my design.
clean up the lines and adjust the structure.
