"Oops Doughnuts Productions - Logo", Late 2008 - Jan 2009. Digital image created with Photoshop and Illustrator. Original size is 12"x8" at 600dpi.
Full view -- lotsa sprinkles.
In Hollywood, it's all about who you know. Or at least, that's what they often say.
Been working on this for a while, but I think I can show this now.
I've mentioned before that in the past I waded into the screenwriting pool, and even made enough progress therein that I could doggie paddle pretty well (enough of that metaphor). I may return to it someday soon, but I've been mainly concentrating on illustration.
This is one of the instances where those worlds united. Oops Doughnuts Productions is a film production company headed up by director Andy Fickman (Reefer Madness: The Musical, The Game Plan), among others. Currently, Oops Doughnuts has a three-year first-look deal with Disney (if that's to Hollywood-speak for you, use "The Google" to figure out what that means). One of their first releases will be the upcoming Race To Witch Mountain.
With their new found fame, Oops Doughnuts, first off, was named Oops Doughnuts (which I understand came from something Mr. Fickman's young son once said). They then wanted a logo.
A friend of mine who works for the above company suggested me to the people that own it for this logo job. I was invited to pitch ideas to the company along with a few other artists and dabblers (and so I hear a couple of Disney-based pros). I showed them about three or four ideas, and the friend gave me a few ideas that Mr. Fickman had.
The above design was one of mine, and my favorite of all the designs. It ended up being their favorite too.
So over the past few months I worked on the logo you see above. There was an extensive approval process, with each member of the upper management (owners?) of the company going over the color/flavor/frosting/sprinkles of each doughnut (I do not exaggerate). This required lots and lots of color changes and sample drawings.
In the end, this was the final design, which will end up on their window/door and stationery and business cards. And, if I'm lucky, perhaps more in the future -- we'll see.
But for now, here it is.
And yes, I did hit Dunkin' with some of the money I was paid.
