Sketching Logos

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

Was flipping thru an old moleskin and found two sketches I made back in Fall 2009.

Fantom logo sketch

First was a little sketch of a potential logo for the Fantom language. For whatever reason, when we changed the name to Fantom, I got this 1920s/Art Deco motif concept in my head (hence the typeface). I’m pretty sure its because of the movie The Shadow, but I keep trying to tell myself thats not the case… Never really had time to come up with a real logo — but this is one I sorta liked.

Axon logo sketch

Second was a logo for the Axon scripting language we designed for our day job at SkyFoundry. Would love to give these both some good Photoshop treatment if I ever find the time.

The product we have been crafting at SkyFoundry for the past year and a half has officially been christened as SkySpark.

SkySpark

SkySpark is turning out to be an awesome platform for visualizing, analyzing, and managing mountains of data. We’ve updated the website to include some high level technical documentation on the software stack. Its built 100% in Fantom – including all the client-side browser code using the Fantom JavaScript compiler.

This software has really validated the years of effort we’ve put into making Fantom a first-class language. I don’t think we’d have been able to build anything even close without it. I’m excited to show off more as we move towards the official release.
