New Concepts After research the SeaWorld brand and brainstorming for new ideas, I came up with three different new ideas of visual development for this brand. Based on the soul— Creating a conservation relationship between humans and marine animals, and mission statement—Through opportunities for people to protect marine animals and oceans, I determined three keywords: connection, sustainability and protection to develop the visual ideas.

CONNECTION

Connect between humans and marine animals

SeaWorld

SUSTAINABILITY

Environment sustainable development.

PROTECTION

Protect marine animals and oceans


11 Visual Research

CONNECTION Connect between human and marine animals SeaWorld prefers to provide a chance, which will let people more closely with marine animals in the future. SeaWorld will provide lots of forms that educate people how to protect marine animals and oceans when they interact with them.

SUSTAINABILITY Environment sustainable development. SeaWorld will organize some programs or events related to ocean protection. Humans get a lot from marine animals and oceans like entertainment, food and marine knowledge, with the development of the society, the marine environment is getting worse. So how to protect the marine environment is always the SeaWorld wants to do.

PROTECTION Protect marine animals and oceans. SeaWorld has always been committed to protecting oceans and marine animals. Deterioration of the marine environment and human activities have caused harm to marine animals, SeaWorld will help with marine animals and oceans in different ways.

Logo Research Based on the previous step, I collected some logos that similar to my visual styles, such as shield shape with letter S, water wave with letter S and trident shape. This step can inspire me to develop my thoughts for visual style.

Logo Design Process The three keywords are guiding identity development for the SeaWorld brand. For each concept, there are three directions for logo design, which are type, graphic and symbolic logos.

PHASE ONE:

Generate sketches in three directions, and refine ten sketches for each direction.

PHASE TWO:

Chose one direction to develop further logos, and select ten sketches to refines.

PHASE THREE:

Develop the best visual ideas, then turn into computer to refine and try colors for the best.
