Calligraphy by Kristen


Thank you so much for all your expert help!  The class has been fantastic and I am finding it very informative.  You are prompting me to think about things that I never really considered until now, and quite honestly, bringing me out of my comfort zone a bit!  Just what I need!  One immediate need I have is to update and vectorize an improved logo.  I came up with this logo in 2012 when I was still toying with the idea of a "side hussle".  I calligraphed it on paper... my cover photo is the first iteration that I liked and "approved" for my logo.  Since then, my skills in calligraphy have dramatically improved, and because I want to evolve into a legitimate, professional business, I believe the logo needs refining.  I am learning how to photoshop and digitize my artwork, so the first thing I will do is polish and fine tune the logo.  So since I am doing that, now is the time to improve the overall look of it for my brand. Please take a look:


Do you feel that the flourishing is too much?  Too dramatic?  Distracting?  I do somewhat, but not necessarily.  I like the idea of a clean, polished logo, but I'd also like to incorporate some flourishing because that's what a lot of people love about calligraphy.  Is the logo balanced (?) well?  I don't even know what questions to ask about it, really, so any feedback would be much appreciated.  

Thanks so much!!!
