I've actually never had an official logo for myself and since I've been working on so many logos for other people lately I decided it was time to make a fresh one for myself! (I guess this is a logotype if you want to get technical)
I''d been using this as my shop header and I guess it was kind of my logo, but it's a few years old and looks really messy to me now. More pertinent right now for me though is I really wanted to make a logo that incorporated my name. I've been wanting to leave the Oh My Cavalier name behind for a while because I want my work to be associated with ME and my name rather than credited to a business or company. I'm tired of coming across drawings of mine on Pinterest etc credited to Oh My Cavalier, like they were made by committee or something. (It's totally my fault because my website etc, pretty much all my places on the web are called Oh My Cavalier, something I'm also trying to change now)
It's super hard to design for myself, because I can't make decisions, so I may tweak this design a bit but overall I'm happy with it. It incorporates my name and also my initials, so if I want I can use the whole design as a letterhead or just use the little leaf part as a stamp or watermark.
Here are some of the rejected designs I agonized over for a while:
Why a leaf and not keep a fox for the logo? Well I don't know, it just felt like the right change. Plus I really love the design of this antique trade card.
Let me know what you think!
