This was my first attempt at making a logo. I used4 different images to create my logo, I tried toportray a coat of arms which used elements ofhorror, which are commonly used in horror filmssuch as axes and knives. Using fonts fromDafont.com I found a typeface which suited thetheme of the logo. Portraying blood. After the first attempt I researched images and created one of my own with a help of a friend. I uploaded the image on Photoshop, using the tools I manipulated the exposure and the vibrancy of the image, also using the highlight and shadow tool I highlighted the blood, which is conventionally used in horror films. Using Dafont.com is was able to find a horror typeface. As the action for the image was someone being silent, I choose the name “Silent Films” which went well with image.
I used Photoshop to create this image, I used a number of manipulation tools such as vibrancy tool and shadow and highlight tool, I highlighted the red apple. Using dafont.com I choose a font that had a horror element in it.Using this image I manipulated thehighlights and the contrast, to make anemphasis on the blood which iscommonly used in horror films. I usedthe blending option to create a blackoutline for the typeface.
