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?
