I think I finally got the website finished like I want it. New logo, new theme, same me. Take a look around and let me know what you think.
I now have 21 free bumper sticker designs on my website. I just finished adding a bunch and updating the old ones a bit. They’re all designed to promote responsible driving by encouraging people not to use their cell phones while driving. This is an issue I feel very strongly about. No conversation is worth someone’s life.
They’re sized for printing as bumper stickers at VistaPrint, but you can use them however you like. They’re free for personal use. Enjoy.
I implemented my new website design. Take a look and let me know what you think: http:www.karenbjones.com
I’m designing a new logo for myself. I’ll print off business cards, promotional materials, and redesign my website around it sometime soon. But first, I needed the logo.
This is what I came up with. I may still fiddle with it a bit, but that’s basically it.
I thought I’d post my sketches for this design, for anyone who’s interested in my process.
Here’s my first sketch.
This was my brainstorming sketch. I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but wasn’t quite sure how to accomplish it yet.
You can see the very first, rough attempt in the middle. Then a more detailed, refined sketch on the left. That was way too detailed for a logo, so I simplified that on the top right. Since the simplified version eliminated the little girl, I sketched out another idea with the girls on the floor drawing.
This one is almost the finished form. I wasn’t happy with one of the curls in the hair, though. So, I added a few curls to experiment with. You might note that the final version incorporated some of these curls.
This is very close to the final version of the girls. As you can see, I didn’t like the paper on the floor and made a couple of extra attempts at it.
Then I just played with positions and fonts to come up with the finished logo.
