The original logo was used when applying for
The following second draft was created based on the original draft. In addition to the colorful image based on red and green, the letters are also made into a round font overall. In addition, a device has been added to express the dakuten part of 'gas' and 'desu' with 'stove flame'. Every day, 'Gasya's company name and event logo tend to use warmth and roundness, eco-friendly vitamin colors, and the blue fire color of gas when there is no image color unique to the area. just made it'
Every day, 'I thought that a logo with only letters would be confusing in a full-color manga, so I put an earth color in the background of the letters and surrounded them.
In the final completed logo, the company that will be the stage is 'Hoshimi Life Equipment', so the dot in the exclamation part of 'De~su!!' has become a star mark.
Next, the main costumes for the characters, the 'Gasman's uniform' were designed. Below is the initial design of the main character, Kayo Kiyu. The company uniform is worn from the top, and under it there are some restrictions, but it seems that it changes depending on the day.
Regarding the uniform, color was carefully considered because it ``accounts for a large proportion of the color manuscript''.
By reflecting the color on the actual page, we are comparing and examining how it looks. Mainichi: “When considering the color of the uniform, we first wanted the company name logo to be yellow, which is associated with the star. I thought about it.When I compared the page where the uniform occupied a wide area of the page, I felt that the green of 4 and the blue of 7 were good.'
The image below is a drawing of the 1st page of the 1st episode created during the color review in a different color. We judge the actual appearance by reflecting it concretely.
When considering the uniform design, a 'company logo' was also created for the uniform.
The finally decided uniform color looks like the image below. Mainichi: “When another gas company appears in the story, I wanted to use solid colors such as moss green and navy blue so that it would be easily recognizable. ”
In addition, a light and cool 'summer uniform' was also prepared for the uniform design. It will appear in future episodes, so please look forward to it.

Become. Below is a special illustration of the inside of the office that I often draw in the work.
