As a general policy, we here at Dang Creative Services discourage the use if raster art in logo design. However, in this case, we’ve decided to make an exception to this rule.
In designing the Weldon Metalworks logo for this guy, our client asked for a piece that would resemble a metal badge that you would see welded to steel. Intended as a small plaque that would be applied to his original artwork, we figured it was okay to go nuts in Photoshop with the drop shadows and texture layers. We think the results were great!
