I’d been waiting for a price-list from a friend for a while to create a logo for the website/blog and after giving them since before Christmas I figured I would hire a real professional instead.
Within minutes of asking for a graphic designer on Twitter, I had two/three messages offering to help me out with my project; which was great cause these were graphic designers ready, waiting and willing to do the work for me.
I gave my chosen graphic designer a graphic of my artist signature – which is my initials in some ‘fancy’ doodle. This stems from when I was doing my ‘scribble doodle’ style artwork. Only with the letters TF (For TragicFangirl)
Along with the colour palette – grey as black would be harsh on the eyes – and off my chosen graphic artist went.
They pretty quickly came back with a few mock ups for me to look over and pick from. Which I wasn’t expecting – professionalism and speed!
Although I liked several of the designs, I think there was one obvious choice from the four I was given! It matches my signature pretty accurately and incorporates the elements that I asked for.
I’m really pleased with how things turned out and I feel a lot better about the blog now that I am no longer using the face of my old “fursona” as the site icon.
