How Sir Larry started their logo design journey

Company name

Area 5 Design

Overview

Area 5 Design is a video production company specializing in training video, promotional videos, and tv spots. We're a young and trendy company that has a soft spot for Cold War/Atomic Era advertisements. We also like anything retro-futuristic in style. The company name itself, Area 5 Design, inspires thoughts of a secret atomic age bunker where scientific projects are undertaken (yes we know, it's a little silly). We want a logo that gives off that 1950's feel but still have it be modern and stylish today.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Target audience is medium to large businesses that need creative video production.

Requirements

The logo must have a 1950's atomic age feel. A happier, brighter feel is probably the way we're going but we'd be willing to consider darker logos. Something that epitomizes that 1950's American hopefulness while still under the threat of nuclear annihilation.
Reds, whites, yellows, and blues were common colors used in that era of advertising so schemes with those might be the most accurate.

Some useful links:

http://plan59.com/
- Plan 59 is a library of atomic age advertising. We're frequent visitors so this might be a good source of inspiration.

- The Fallout series pretty much epitomizes the term "retro futurism."
