Short Story

Uncanny Comics is a comic book store that sells comic books, action figures, collectibles and more. I was tasked with designing a logo that was reminiscent of their favorite X-men covers and that would show their enthusiasm for nerd/geek/pop culture.


I was approached by Chad to design a logo for the comic book store he and his family were opening. As avid comic book readers, they had a very clear idea of the style they wanted. For inspiration, they sent me an X-men logo and some action bubbles which I promptly turned into a rough logo concept for them. After a few tweaks, we ended up with a fun and impactful logo design.
