2BD39 Logo Challenge
This week, Kim challenged us to create a logo inspired by one she had seen in real life at a local cafe. I spent an embarrassing amount of time on this, not because I had problems with PSE, but because I've been thinking about my logo since 1994 when I started my little production company. I knew I wanted a simple green leaf and the words -- that's what it's been all this time. I took so long because I was making it more complicated than the lesson needed to be. Once I settled into design and Kim's given recipe with circles (not leaf shapes), it all went well. I followed her recipe pretty faithfully.
My tweaks were the chosen fonts :
Pea Miss Mariss for my name
Pea Aimee for Sweet Leaf Productions
Green Leaf Texture from Stockvault
Kim Klassen's 1402 texture for the background
A few tweaks (for another day?)
I might make that outer ring not so dark, or change the color a bit. It's kind of heavy next to everything else. Maybe a blend mode will take care of that?
I'm going to let this settle a while ... Someday, maybe I'll add it to the header of my blog. ;-)
