Day Forty-Nine. Design a Logo.
May 25, 2011 § 1 Comment
Before I started this blog, I made a random list of things I could do for the project. I love lists. Well, one of the brainstormed ideas was to design a logo. I know so many talented graphic artists and figured it couldn’t be that difficult. So we decided to do new shirts for our softball team and I thought creating the logo for it could be fodder for this blog. On Day Forty-Nine, I did just that.
And it was a lot harder than I thought it would be (sorry for any doubt I placed on your skills talented graphic artists). I came up with a ton of random stuff and sent it to Steven, our team’s founder and all around friend. He is a tough critic, but a very good coach/leader. I would send him three and he would say something like, “I like where number three is going, but I think we could add to it.” The perfect criticism. It’s good, but not finished. Eager to please, I sent him more and more (like ten) until we found one that we both liked. It was design focused and included our name. I felt pretty confident when I made it, but hearing him like it as well sent me over the moon. I doubt I’ll ever fancy myself a real designer, but this works. And our shirts look pretty cool.
