These were the draft images of the Alpha Centauri logo, I wanted to incorporate the two suns that we imagined revolved around the planet and give it a futuristic theme. First of all, I played about with creating two suns, obviously they had to be two different colours so I went with the a lighter/darker shade of orange; insinuating that one of the Stars is much older than the other. When I made the two Suns and put them together how I wanted, I think it resembled the Mastercard logo so I had to come up with another way combining them.
Along with that, I had to think about creating a font that would work well with the image and suit the theme of the whole project, searching about I found Neuropol which is quite a common Sci-Fi text and also quite generic and one that I’d personally not choose, but it seemed the group preferred it over the others.
I used Adobe Illustrator because of the vector aspect which Photoshop doesn’t have and I personally think that it has a much cleaner finish
