I’m declaring this Logo Day. If there’s already a “Logo Day” (Feb 28th was Pancake Day — who woulda thought?) then let me know. In the meantime, I’m going to post some interesting stuff about the logo creation process.
First, an article for logo design do-it-yourselfers intended for people who are starting a business and NEED a logo/identity design, money is tight, they’re in a rush, and they would rather do it themselves because they think it’s a simple process.
The second is a data sheet for people purchasing logo designs (from Eclectic Tech) who need to know why the price tag is so high. Step-by-step explanation of the process and the expectations that the client should have regarding what is going on behind the scenes.
Ok. I’m gender agnostic on the inside, but I’m 100% certified genetic female on the outside. My Djinni is a bit androgynous, I guess. In email I only introduce my gender if someone requested a female for a specific (and good!) reason.
Yet, when a client calls on the phone, they’re always taken aback that I’m female. I know that female artists are commonplace, but I’m also a programmer, a Linux admin, and competing in a fierce male-dominated field. Maybe I should make it much more obvious that I’m female. Once I get my woman-owned business certs, I can flaunt them, but for now, it’s me, that’s all you have, and I’m female. 2 homebirths to show for it. Deal
I’m sad to see the Wiki sale end. Hopefully you weren’t one of the people who missed out. Still, $149 is a great deal. Maybe I can put it on sale again in the future, but for now, I can’t afford that much extra work.
