Trying to capture what he does was difficult. He needed to stand out from other photographers by having his own identifying mark. It took about a month to get it right. I had an initial concept that was perfect, but the execution was not. Tim liked it, but needed to see more. So I kept sketching thumbnails and mocking up logos—still not right. We went rounds and rounds; trying to capture Tim and his work in one image was proving to be one of the more challenging logo jobs I had worked on—but I love a good challenge.
Tim creates "Art in the Moment" capturing emotion, nuance and quickly fading memories. Do you remember as a child, or even as a parent, the special moment of blowing on a dandelion and watching the seeds magically float through the air. The joy and the lightness, the effortless movement lasts only a fleeting moment and then it is gone. This is what Tim is able to capture with his creative skills and raw talent behind the lens. I kept telling him things like "I won't give up until we get it right," and "We'll know it when we get it right." It is finally right.
I would love to show you the whole process, but unfortunately my camera is broken—yes I dropped it—so I will just upload the final logo.
