I am Ariel Cotton.  I'm an artist, UI/UX designer, & maker of interactive things.

I craft beautiful, human-centered interfaces for web and mobile applications. I draw and write comics about life in Berlin and New York City. I even tinker with electronics and make interactive art from time to time.


Chow & Herr

I designed this logo for Chow & Herr, a gynecology practice based in Offenburg, Germany. They requested an ampersand that looked like a pregnant woman.

As usual, I began the process with a series of sketches.

After many pages of rough sketches, I chose the sketches that I felt were the strongest and produced refined versions of them.

Once the client had decided on a direction, we went through many iterations.

Eventually they decided they wanted the fetus to look more developed and less embryo-like.

Then we experimented with colors. The client initially wanted blue and reddish hues, but we settled eventually on pink and dark brown.
