In other news I re-designed my logo. The old and the new logo are compared below.
This launched on my website last night. I believed the old logo had become a bit school-ish and wasn't reflecting how I was progressing as a designer. I am hoping the new logo delivers a slightly more professional message, while retaining the fun side to my work with the use of the playful yet elegant typeface. The typeface is an edited version of Lobster which you can download here. Lobster is a script typeface which makes use of some very poetic and flowing ligatures, but unfortunately the typeface doesn't come with a ligature which links an A and W which is what I worked on here. I have also given my blog a facelift and have applied the logo to my twitter account.
In other news... it is very cold. Falmouth fell victim to a small storm at the start of the week, there was thunder, lightning, hail, snow and even rumours of a small tornado. You can see photos of it here and here. I don't usually make a habit of talking about the weather on my blog, but this was a truly bizarre start to the week which resulted in falmouth almost grinding to halt. I don't think the south west is used to this sort of weather. Here is a photo out of my window of the event.
