Today I am beyond thrilled to share with you my new (& 100% permanent) logo. If you've been here before, you may have seen a few different versions, but I won't get in to that - moving forward, right? ;) From the beginning of my journey in early 2009 I knew two things to be true. 1. I wanted to have my own creative business. and 2. I wanted my logo to be done in calligraphy. I played around with script typefaces, and although beautiful, they lacked the unique and handmade feel I was looking for. There are some things only pen and paper can do!
A few months ago I started seriously searching for a calligrapher. Checking out their styles and emailing back and forth until I found the perfect fit. Finally, I came across Angi, of Angelique, Ink. Not only was I smitten with her work but she was so nice and wonderful to work with. During the 1st revision round she took my suggestions and really listened to what I was saying and she nailed it right on the head. We didn't have to go any further! She was also very patient as I waited weeks to give my response. As I've said before, I want my brand to be a full reflection of me and my business and I want to make sure I put lots of thought into it. Thank you so much, Angi. You're amazing & I can't wait to work together in the future! :)
As far as the color(s) - I can not tell you how much I love them. I'm kind of nervous to be putting this out here because I feel like I'm taking a bit of a risk. When my (wonderful) aunt suggested I use all of the colors I loved, I kind of thought she was crazy and did not expect to like it at all. Whatsoever. I don't know too many logos out there that have this many colors going on, and yet, it just works. For me. I love the way it makes me feel when I look at it. It's the same way I feel when I look at this photo which is how I know it's right.
Back in March, I had the opportunity to attend the Amber Housley Inspired Workshop here in Nashville. It was such a great experience and just what I needed at the time to ignite that fire inside of me again. I'm so proud of the progress I have made and so ready to just keep pushing towards all my wildest dreams.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and PLEASE tell me what you think of my new logo! I hope you love it as much as I do because friends, it's here to stay!
