April Recap 2016 Featured Image

Well, April came and went pretty quickly. I think for my second month doing my freelance business, I was pretty busy if I do say so myself!

What was I up to in April?

I launched two websites (!!!). Those two sites were enclavecompamies.com and diamondcutfm.com and I also designed the logo for Diamond Cut Lawn and Snow.

 

I will be updating my website with those added into my portfolio shortly so stay tuned for deets on those two projects!

What do I have on deck for May?

I am working on one website as of right now and have another logo design in the works! Plus lots of updated stuff for my personal sites, so stay tuned.

AND I am going to attending two conferences towards the end of May in the cities that I am completely stoked about, more on those later!

Quick Side Note:

Have I mentioned that I love my job, because I do absolutely love my job.

Welp, that is all I have for right now. I am going to try to keep these monthly recaps going, but no promises.

Let me handle the website design part…

Let't talk about logos featured Image

Let’s talk about logos… or more specifically, my logo

Logo design…it can be a tough one. I came up with several different logos in the process of creating a brand for my portfolio. I think it’s toughest to create a logo for yourself.  You don’t hand it off to a client after it’s approved, you are constantly looking at it and have the ability to change it.  #designerproblems

This was one version of my logo. I can’t really say many good things about it. I thought I was content with it, until one day I just wasn’t.  I love the color grey.  I seriously have grey touches in every room of my house. I think that is why I went with it for this logo, but this logo is super bland in my opinion.

Second Draft Logo
I came up with my current logo while doodling one day, I wasn’t even thinking about logos to be honest, I was just doodling my initials, and BAM! There was my inspiration.

Doodle of Logo Inspiration

Is it the most original logo ever? Probably not.  Do I love it? Yes, I do.  It’s simple and clean and that’s what I was looking for.  The main emblem is the font Nexa Rust Script but you won’t find these letters in the actually typeface choices.  I took the letters and customized them to look how I want.  I actually think I used 5 different letters to make the two combined.   I think that is what I love about it, it’s unique to me and not easily reproduced.  The bottom font is Sinkin Sans, which is a very clean Sans Serif font.

That’s about all I have to say about my logo design.  Let me know your thoughts. I love critiques from other people, it opens my eyes to perspectives I haven’t seen and I think they are the best way to grow as a designer.

Until next time,
