Here Goes Nothing

So I have been going back and forth on sharing my class projects here for a couple reasons. 1.) I am painfully shy and pretty sensitive most of the time and 2.) I am still learning and so I know it is all a work in progress. I also know that being a designer/ creative person is about putting yourself out there - how else will anyone ever find you and how will you grow?

Our latest project will take three weeks and incorporate many different areas that as a class we will have to vote on until we have an identity built for a concept that we developed last week. We are designing for a fictional business called The Art Shack. The idea behind this place is that it would be a place where artists from different mediums could gather and rent studio space, get work printed and generally meet other people. It would have a cafe, supply store and courtyard (among other things) - pretty awesome right?

The first stop was to develop a logo that each student had to present to the class on Tuesday and we would vote on the official logo for the business. And well my logo was voted in!! The funny thing is I see things that I would like to change to make it better, but I am always pretty critical with my own work. I snapped this pic of it yesterday to share with you all. My idea was that the logo should be clean, simple, appeal to a variety of creative types, and be easily reproduced on printed materials, packaging, etc. So taa-daa...


  1. I love this! What a beautiful logo. Personally, I would love to see more of your projects ... you're so incredibly talented.

    Oh, and my husband's best friends owns a place similar to this in portland. It's amazing.

  2. Yay!! It's great. You should feel real good about your logo being picked. And see, it wasn't that bad putting it up here for us to see was it? We are always hardest on ourselves. Good practice for you. Woo hoo! XO Margie

  3. Way to go girl. Congratulations! You should be very proud. By the way, did you get my email about a guest post?

  4. Thanks ladies - your kind words made this much less painful than I imagined.

    @ Jenn... You mean a place like that actually exists - that would be my dream. Have you been? Details please!!

    @Margie - practice makes perfect, right?!?

  5. @Spiral Style - I just checked my email and it was sent to my junk - grrr. Not sure why gmail doesn't like me anymore - I will be in touch soon :)
