Of the many I made I picked a few and opened them in photoshop where I added the complimentary colors of the wheel as semi-transparent overlapping areas that surround each node. The idea was to get these colors to overlap to create new tints where they intersect.
Confused emotions? In-between states? New forms of psychoses?
In order to create a suitably serious feel to the layout I added a short description and a legend. Needless to say, Arial - the font of choice for such somber endeavors was the one that was used.
The wallpapers that I made out of the randomized graphs and the wheel colors are above.
However, having gotten totally bored by now with all the poo-faced scientific inquiry stuff I took the play session to a whole new level and applied the kitschiest of kitsch, i.e., page curl effects to some of the diagrams. And I use them as desktop wallpapers to this very day!
Two of them are below and the other one is at the top of this page.
UMUMI KARGA | AKA. HOW I STOLE MY STUDENTS' HOMEWORK
What started out as a video tutorial, such as the ones that I have on this page here, got its own legs when I realized how much fun the topic of creating a branding for a concept that revolves around crows was, especially when I added a slogan which is actually part of a famous Turkish proverb, the full length of which is "the one who has a crow for a guide will never get his nose out of shit" - butonly uttering the start of it is more than sufficient - folks know the rest.
The "Public Crow" was the name that my students came up with for a youth orientated café/bar which became their class project for this year. This eventually got extended to a company that does a whole lot more than provide in-house food and entertainment. The crow sticks his naughty big nose into pretty much everything alongside the regular café and bar stuff - from apparel to groceries to home furnishings, he is all over the place. Not to even mention cosmetics, body products - to even travel organization! A right little old entrepreneur he is!
So, horrible instructor that I am, I stole their idea and sat down and made my own identity for the "public crow"...
