Kanto Sports Team logos

Well this was fun :) Here's the end result of my first series of logos based on a pokemon gym, the city it's in, and one of the pokemon used in the gym. The first set is based on the Kanto region, as that's the first area introduced in the games and anime, with the other regions to follow.

I learnt a lot from doing this. I kinda dove in headfirst thinking, 'I'm gonna do this, and this is how I'll start', and went from there. And while I took this approach and it's worked fine there's some workflow issues I'm going to address so that I get the next lot done easier. One of the key things I'm going to address first in the next set of logos is the layout of each logo, which instead of having a small idea before getting to it in the order of the gyms, I'm going to get a layout done first for each gym then start going through the order of the gyms and complete each one. This should reduce some problems I had in the second half of the first set of logos where I got held up a bit.

The other thing I had some difficulty with was the font for each logo. I plan to address this when doing the initial layout of the next set. The three logos I had the most problems with in regards to font were the Celadon, Saffron, and Cinnabar logos. And these are the ones I most happy with in terms of font, so I think it's more to do with workflow, which I plan to address.

Overall I'm really happy with how this turned out. I decided to start this as a way to force myself to get better a logo design, which is something I really like doing, and I learnt a lot from this set. Onto the next region, Johto!

Oh, and I want to give a quick credit to :iconalealiakitsune: for listening to my problems on the series and giving me great feedback about it. Really appreciated :)
