Joe is a good friend of mine and a pretty succesful YouTuber & content creator, who’s a well known figure within Forza Motorsport community. As his YouTube channel grew quickly in 2017 we quickly realized he’s going to need a logo.
Here is the logo I came up with:
The shards in the DJS logo began life as a draft in one of our drift illustrations, where it symbolized rocks, smoke and debris shot out by a drift car during powerslide. We liked the sense of motion so much we decided to incorporate it to the whole branding:
We also made a Toyota GT86 drift livery for him (It’s his dream car and built to specifications he prefers), which has since featured in all of his channel art and various other places (videos, blog posts, websitess and even newspapers).
I have also created the vector files for many of his animated intros and animated the first one myself. You can see the latest intro & outro featuring my illustrations here:
We have also teamed up for multiple special logos and banners in the past. There are many, but as a recent example here is a video made as a tribute to Vaughn Gittin JR’s awesome drift lap around Nürburgring Nordschleife! Enjoy:
