So for the past few weeks I have been indulging myself in personal development, by researching, studying and learning, engaging in facebook “support” groups, and also planning my next, actionable steps for my newly found purpose – to be able to help others tell their story and build their brand. 

While I’m doing that, my friend and coach, Kimi Lu, suggested that I make name logos for friends because they turn out to be great marketers. So I took her advice and made it my personal project to make some for our GetBlisstified group (Thanks Kimi! This was an awesome idea). It’s also my one-of-a-kind Christmas present to them, since we’re going through our passion projects together. They can use it as their submark or watermark, their email or blog signature, and even a site header if they wish to do so.

I only required three things from them:

  1. Their name, nickname, or initials they wanted made as a logo,
  2. Three personalities (3 adjectives that describe them best), and
  3. Their favorite color/s (maximum of 3)

So each one is unique, because they have different personalities. And boy, was it a challenge!

I also regarded this as part of my self improvement, where I get to practice and develop my skills with all the brainstorming, sketching, and photoshop-ing I get to do.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram (@ldcreativepursuits), you’ll notice I’ve been teasing with some of the mood boards that I came up with myself.

What is a mood board? Well, it’s simply a collection of images and color palette used as inspiration, to “set the mood” for the design itself. Each project I start has to have a mood board, because that’s the main thing I refer to when I think up of my design. I’m a visual learner, so I tend to absorb more information through pictures.

And in less than 2 weeks time, I designed eleven (11) name logos! What? I can’t believe I did that! Even with all my daily chores. Haha. Kidding aside, I found this as a great exercise for my skills. And I’m quite proud of what I produced, if I do say so myself.

I hope you’ll like them too!
