So I had a word mark but not a logo mark. I kept reading about now important is was for people to have an image in their mind when they though of your brand. I had been trying to come up with one and I just couldn't figure out a look that worked for my art business. Then I tried the sketching steps in Lindsay's class and it helped me to create steps to get to where I need the logo mark to be.
Here's the first attempt.
I didn't like the flat look so I tried again.
Here's the 3rd draft and this time I loved the gracefulness of the arms curving in one direction.
I cleaned this one up and I am super happy with the design which combines my style perfectly. Although I am happy with it for now, I understand logos evolve. I am totally open to feedback!!
