I’ve finally started working on some of the exercises from the Creative Workshop book I purchased forever ago. Here’s an un-affiliated link to it on Amazon if you’re curious and want to ‘flip through’ the beginning of the book. This week I tackled the very first exercise in the book, to craft a personal logo in only 30 minutes. Is this figure-ground logo based on my initials the best logo ever? Not really. But I do think it’s a pretty cool thing to get done in just half an hour, and it felt really satisfying. Here’s some different colors and iterations. My two favorites are the cmyk inner triangles with the black border and the greyscale patchwork.
I’m not really a graphic designer, and I don’t really claim to be – but who doesn’t love playing around in Illustrator, amirite? I’m intrigued by this new triangle idea, but I’m still in love with my ‘E’ pinwheels for my portfolio, etc. We’ll see! I’ll probably file this away into the ‘work on this someday’ computer folder.
Now I’m curious – what would your ideal personal logo look like?
