I decided that I really liked the idea of having the shapes in the background and realized that is was probably just the patterns that were busying the design, therefore, decided I would change this and give myself a more simple background to work with.
This video shows the next step I took to ensure the piece was less busy.

I actually really like this version and think it works really nicely although some of the shapes are a bit to blocky making it slightly dated but I am actually really pleased with the way the colours work together so will continue with these colours throughout.
I then decided to get the same effect with a different shapes – I went for a more delicate and geometric finish with just triangles and then add in the colour.
I actually… Finally love this background and think it will work really well – I popped the logo over it and I was IN LOVE!
I think this is looks really effective and a lot more modern. I will now be thinking carefully about getting the type lined out in a way that I am happy with.
