Practise makes you a better designer

Usually, when I am not working on design projects, I practise my geometrical hand drawings and design skills. These could be any shapes, icons or just about anything that comes to my mind, as long as I practice to improve.
Then routinely transform these shapes into logos/branding or patterns, purposely to create branding projects for fictional companies. Finally, I apply them to test their functionalities and visualize whether my technical drawings make any creative sense.
Introducing one of my favourite fictional projects that later developed into an inspirational work I created back in the summer of 2019 Saburo & Jurou Architects.
Saburo & Jurou Architects is a prestigious architecture firm based in Tokyo, Japan.
The Logo
The logo itself is a strong emphasis implies a Japanese architectural design firm. Moreover, the letters S & J form the shape of the logo creating a unique motif.
My idea for the design is to create a simple shape
Functions very well in different types of formats, such as patterns, apparel, mugs, etc. Also, scalable to large or small, the structure remains recognizable and coherent.​​​​​​​
Colour theory
Lime Green
Lime Green is a colour closely associated with nature, confidence, and high energy. Also, it promotes feelings of liveliness, freshness, and creativity.
Denim Blue
In general, blue represents the sky and the sea and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. Blue also symbolizes depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, and intelligence.
