Process

I started out by first researching the topic of bots, from statistics, to usages, to classifications. I compiled a mood board to generate ideas for potential logo marks and visual languages to explore.

Logo Explorations

Bots are no more than fragments of code, yet have been "personified" into robots despite their lack of any physicality. I hoped to exploit that personification with my logo so as to give a face to the enemy. Part of the challenge was doing so without making them appear overly cute or comically evil. The campaign names I had brainstormed also informed my logo ideas.

Eventually I selected three logos to develop into distinct visual directions. In the end, I decided on the third, Antiboties. The metaphor of the name provided a wealth of disease-inspired language that I could tap into. The color palette also felt less typical, and the mark (after some additional finessing) was flexible enough that I could still incorporate elements from the other systems, i.e. the binary code-inspired pattern.
