Hey everybody. A lot of great ideas so far but we'd like to see some more abstract versions of the lotus graphic element that may suggest the company's focus: converting 2D content into 3D.
Lotus Studios = worldwide leader in converting 2D film and video content into stereoscopic 3D (S3D). We are truly international, with corporate offices located in Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles and our primary production studio located in Chennai, India. We serve all mediums: cinema, broadcast and mobile devices. We specialize in high quality, high depth conversions, drawing on experience gained from over 20 years of stereoscopic research in creating physiologically correct S3D – S3D that can be viewed for hours and hours with no discomfort. The company is joint venture between a successful India based VFX, compositor and animation studio and a US based S3D content production and S3D technology development company.
The US partner provided the first ever S3D event in Grand Central Station when it featured a series of 2D – 3D converted commercials for VISA’s Winter Olympic campaign. It received national coverage for this work.
Company culture is one of top tier artists and technicians created amazing quality conversions in a trustworthy, meet-the-deadline-no-matter-what way – we love the craft of what we are doing
Personality is of seasoned experts in a demanding art and technology based industry who are great at both the creative AND the business side of what we do.
business to business only - major content owners needing 2D-S3D conversion work - - major broadcasters around the world- both cable channel and primary channels (Ex Viacom, Turner, Discovery, BskyB, ESPN) - record labels (music video conversions) - Hollywood/Bollywood studios - independent film makers – etc
Design will be used primarily on website, biz cards and brochures
Target demographic – Entertainment Corp.’s VP’s - mostly male - Early 30’s-to early 50’s, educated, “hip & cool” but with strong business sense and lots of pressure to pick someone dependable who can do the job right, on time and on budget
Logo feel – international, rock solid, experts, industry leader, warm, friendly, high tech, dependable, hip and cool
Not too feminine – not too masculine
Should have some international or India feel to it but not overwhelmingly so
Please do not use clip art or stock images or cartoons
Do want to have logo element and the words "Lotus Studios"
The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB
also need .eps files
The lotus flower is an obvious choice and would like to see some examples but very open to stylized versions or just having it as a wash in the background or perhaps a techno version of it – not trying to limit this in anyway – please surprise me
Open to just about any color palette
The type face should be easily read - please do not use calligraphy or cursive style fonts
No lens flares or other gimmicky Photoshop filters and effects
Needs to NOT look like we are trying too hard to impress
