Since we seemed to mostly agree upon the concept of a painterly-themed ident, I've drawn up a few concepts for the introduction to our logo. I thought it would be a suitable idea to keep it black and white to match our animation.
1: Scattered ink transition from black to white.
2: Ink wipe logo from top right to bottom left.
3: Ink wipe on backdrop from right to left. Logo zoom fade from white.
4: Logo spiral ink wipe from centre to outer frame.
5: Scribble/erase from black.
