Every once in 23 years or so I’ll come up with a great idea. This is the latest one that I’ve been working on for the past 6 months or so called Collabatube. As with most ideas that I think are life-changing, they end up being exciting concepts that take either way too much money, maintenance, or mental stamina to see it through to a state of global awesome-sauce.
With Collabatube, I’ve thrown the idea by a handful of people that I really respect (who really know stuff) and there seems to be a resounding “holy crap, this is a great idea” so the adventure to find partners in this little venture is moving along. I’ve had a few different programmers looking into the practical details of what it would take to get this puppy off the ground & have recently hooked up with some really great local guys who are stoked about the idea.
What is Collabatube? Well, can’t tell you all my secrets but it’s basically a collaborative video project using Youtube. And yes, it is (or will be) a website [ http://collabatube.com ] where people will be able to collaborate with each other.
As with most of the design projects I work on, you (my friends) only get to see the finished, polished product but I thought I’d give you a sneak peek into the design process. Today I spent a couple of hours working on a logo concept that I was trying to get from my head onto my computer screen & I’d love to hear your feedback if you’re brave enough to offer it. I use Adobe Illustrator to create these and I find it’s best to start with just a black and white concept, incorporating colour afterward (if necessary). Which one you like?
