Logos TDC1581

The daily create of checking out Maker Mark and creating a logo.

I didn’t know I needed a logo! Naming the blog was one thing – it took a while and so man choices. Trying to decide who I am – who I want to be – what I want others to see or remember. “Chamaeleon”, would have been better – I love change and diversity – but also am a collector.

First you had to name your company. I decided to use Digital Mustard. Until I went through the generator I hadn’t realized that the D or DM could be part of it. That didn’t play out well in my mind. D was not right. I looked for DM or just the full title.

Then there was color, font, uppercase, lowercase, squeeze, stretch, y-axis, x-axis and so on! Too many variables and all dependent on what order.

Others seemed to figure out how to come up with symbols – I may need to go back and try those out.

I settled on two variations. I like them both – but will need to live with each for a while to decide which is right – or go contrary to marketing advice and use both. 🙂

It also pushed me to figure out how to use my theme and still include an image in the header. I didn’t want to create an image that had the logo embedded – but use them independently. About 30 minutes of futzing and I got a reasonable presentation. My next image update will need to include new dimensions and strategy  which is a good thing.

Which logo do you like better?

Socks and TShirts

Between “Ma” time and other – some time for trying to figure out this #ds106 socks thing….haven’t a clue- but it is fun.

After #ds106goodspell last week the subject of socks came up. It only took a few tweets by others to get @dkernohan going and then @jimgroom, @ cogdog and others joined in. Lots of fun watching the narrative expand.

I had created this GIF after the radio show….

As banter continued – riffed this one from a Michael Branson Smith video

And then whoa and behold! in my mailbox….

It came!

I got my Reclaim Hosting T-Shirt! Yeah! My girls say I wear too many men’s T-shirts (baggy and comfy!) so I asked for a ladies t-shirt this time….fits well and actually looks pretty decent. I will wear it with pride!
