Recently, I’ve had a few requests to do some logos. I’m new to logo design but finding the challenge to be a lot of fun. This is a logo I did for a friend who is starting her own photography business. I was really pleased with the way this turned out and I feel like it can be easily adjusted to suit her various promotional/stationary needs. I’d love to hear your thoughts/critiques. I’ll post the company’s website for you to check out as soon as I have it.
My illustration for the Deli Magazine has been approved and I will share that as soon as I am able to. My next project will be a piece for the University of Denver Magazine and finishing up my short children’s story. Not to mention, looking for a place to live and a way to pay my bills in Denver!
I’ve been feeling extremely stressed and anxious lately due to our move. I will be taking care of our 5 month old niece for the month of July so there is a lot of gray area in terms of what daily life will be like and how much work I will be able to get done while she’s sleeping or content. It’s going to be an interesting couple of months, but I can’t wait to get settled into our new home!Continue Reading
First off, I want to say thank you so much to everyone who took the time to look at and critique the first logo I created for myself. After getting some great advice from people here and on Twitter, I’ve come up with a few more incarnations of my logo.
The biggest call out from the original was that the letter M was much bigger than the K which was throwing the balance off just enough to make it look strange. So here I have corrected that problem and added in my full name and exactly what it is that I do.
I wasn’t thrilled with the way the text was laid out in the second one, so for this version I made the pen smaller so the text would sit nicely just below my initials. I think this is the most successful version of this logo. Please ignore the different colors – I saved them in different formats.
At the request of more than one person, I decided to create one using the caricature of myself that I have been using on my blog and as an avatar in various locations. Personally, I think this one might be better than the others, but I would love to have you all weigh in on it too.
Here’s a black and white version just for fun. Obviously I could do this logo either in color or black in white in either inversion. I feel like this one could be more recognizable and might be a little more striking.
Tonight I created my first real logo! I sketched out a few ideas, but in the end I settled on the first idea. I must say, I’m pretty proud of the way it turned out. Since I’m new to logo design I would really like some honest critiques.
My biggest concern about it is whether or not it reflects my personal style. I think I might create the exact same thing, but in pen and ink with cross-hatching instead of color. I feel like that might convey what I do a bit clearer, but it might be less reproduceable.
Designing this logo is all part of my preparations for finding a job in Denver that I love. I was in the middle of revamping my resume when I decided I needed a professional looking logo to help market myself. From here I will start designing a new website and other Michelle Kondrich paraphernalia.
