For some time now, I’ve been calling out to my friends on Twitter to help me develop a logo.
Now I’m getting serious about it.
When you are consulting others on brand development, it is easy to make logo suggestions. But when it comes to you and your own “brand,” brainstorming a logo is VERY VERY hard.
Part of my problem is perfectionism. My “brand” is not a product. It is me. I AM MY brand. And therefore, I want my logo to represent me as best as possible.
I have no idea where to start with this project. And I’m seeking as much guidance and suggestions as possible. Do I use a photo? Do I use just fonts? Graphics? Beer? No beer? Ahhh … sooo confused.
I’m not very familiar with graphic designing programs. I’m sure with the right tools and instruction, I’d be pretty good at graphic designing (used to be an art geek in high school … and I have an affinity for computers). But lack of time and resources does not make this possible. So I’m relying on others to help me.
In the meantime, here is an absolutely ridiculous logo I designed myself … using a (super airbrushed) professional photo of me (in my skinny years) and my MAC. Yeah, go ahead and laugh. I deserve it.
