So, some time last year I made the bold statement above and put it on my Instagram feed – which is private at the moment until they find a way of allowing multiple accounts like Twitter, but I digress.
Where was I? Aaahh yes, the bold statement I made towards the end of 2012.
So….I have been using the logo below for a while and I thought it needed a change.
From creating one using the simplicity of text, I went all Illustrator on the new one. I wanted something clean and simple. And this is what I came up with and I am really pleased.
Keeping the same colours as the as the old logo, I wanted a ‘mark’ that would work as a whole or on its own. When I say as a whole, I mean with the photography included or not.
So, I can safely say that I can do a little bit of work on Illustrator. I am not a pro, but I do try as I have used it a few times. Like when I was asked to create a banner to be printed for an event (see pic):
With that in mind, I went ahead and cashed in on my free moocards code courtesy of Westphoto. I ordered some biz cards which I also designed on Illustrator. I had trouble converting the saved files to business card format, but with help from Moo, I finally got my cards printed and within days I had them with me. All I had to pay for was postage, as it was not included.
I was pleased with my choice of cards (paper, size, design, etc), but they had one flaw….my design didn’t work on black matt surface. Good thing they were freebies, otherwise… All in all, I still have cards that I can pass round until they run out. And I love them.
Back to taking pictures then…
