My logo: Designed in 8 Steps


You never know when inspiration will strike. Hopefully when it does, you have a way to capture the idea thus sparked.

This time I have to say I was lucky. I was actually hard at work at something absolutely unrelated to the new logo for myself I’ve been thinking of deep…in the way back of my cobwebbed mind. I grabbed my ink pen and the one sheet of paper I had at my desk and sketched out about 5 quick versions of what I saw in my minds’ eye.

“Yes…YES! This is my logo,” I thought to myself with glee.

And there the sketch sat, and sat, and sat; on that one lonely piece of scrap paper buried in a mess of meeting scrawl. Until tonight, that is! Tonight, so excited was I to have an evening to myself at home, just my laptop and I, that I created my new mark in 8 simple steps.

It’s by no means a complicated logo, nor is it an earth-shattering design like I would lead you to believe by my tale above. I just simply like it a lot. AND I am excited by the way in which the idea came to me. The subconscious is a most curious thing.

Enough! Here it is. And here it will likely sit. and sit. and sit. and sit.

Until I can find time at long last to design myself a proper site to call home. Thoughts, comments, detractions, distractions, and suggestions welcome as always. Thanks for reading!

The logo I might keep around for a bit...and I'm sure tweak hear and there ;)
