I found a useful video series on logo design (which I started thinking about doing logos for others, and then remembered - oh crap, I don't have a logo...). The instructor is great and manages to get me thinking about branding without huge amounts of teeth pulling. She suggests a mood board of some kind - just to see what is already there in my brain. I started using a long-abandoned Pinterest account to collect design inspiration.
- I am a portlandia sketch, but I knew this
- WOAH! That's a color palette! Blues, deep greens, red, black and white.
My next step is sketching to see what works. Thanks for reading and supporting me!
You can see my board at https://www.pinterest.com/maracwilliams/design-inspiration/ I included a screen grab because of Pinterest's annoying habit of requiring a log in to see boards.
