As the Skookum ranks are growing, so too are the office non-sequiturs.

Back in the spring, we had the fabulous Aaron Draplin re-work our logo which is just ripe for interpretation. We’ve heard it called everything from the "mother ship" to the "alien egg" to (my favorite) the "space volcano." (Also, I’m the one who says "space volcano.")

Skookum Logo Iterations

Recently, our Skookum design whizzes have been leading ad-hoc Photoshop classes for the guys who do nothing but stare at the Terminal all day. One of those forays quickly resulted in a round-robin PSD free-for-all with the results included below.

I know the one, Mr. Draplin would be horrified to see his meticulously crafted logo butchered in all manners presented; I hope to do a full writeup on the identity process at some point to show off some of the other great things we’ve yet unleashed.

This was my blog post; you didn’t thing I was going to lose, right? (Also, I’m the only cinefile here, so I accept this first place award in protest. Y’all need to get right with Kubrick.)
