blowing bubbles of giggling somethingness and why-not-itude, a creative laxative, a provocateur of visual burps and farts (ie: until the end of 2019 as design department head at the creative circus, and frequent side-hustley designer of brandy designy stuff) – but also my every-other-time-o'-day approach.
hopefully this stuff is easily sharable, lots funner than having to read a lot, and not a big investment of time.
i hope you enjoy.

I don’t know how the clients responded…though I can sorta imagine…but I love the line drawings of the hands. You don’t see much/enough of this kind of imagery. What was the outcome of these proposals? Or did they live only in a sketchbook?
the client, a design agency, love the IDEA of the great and powerful oz, but preferred the hand ones. which i liked a lot, too.
Did you do concepts based on the great and powerful Oz that we don’t see here? Sounds very intriguing…
there were other concepts, but i forget what they were. here are my two favorites.
the client had 3 related softwares, so the concepts were for the line of programs which i found complicated, abstract, mind-bending. so, i was desperate for a simple solution that was more than just cool looking.
one concept, the left one, was based on the great and powerful oz. the other, the set on the right, was about power at your fingertips or in the palm of your hand. the oz one, i think, was too light, too thin, not practically reproducable. but the idea more interesting, in some way. the other, more a logo.
