This week I sat in front of my computer screen, stared deep into it's soul while playing Jolene a thousand times, and decided it was time to get serious about designing a logo for the (likely) newsletter. The name could not be more appropriate. I picked the name late one night while in a panic trying to figure out what I was going to do with all of my time after closing my company For the Makers. With all intentions to send out a newsletter a week later, it's been a little over a year. Turns out all I really needed to do was rest and collect my thoughts and not take myself so seriously. So it's entirely humorous that this (likely) newsletter finally came out of my head and has now made it out into the world. If you haven't signed up yet, let's be friends, share thoughts, and talk about things creative and pretty and ridiculous.
Below are a few of the many options I designed and considered. I ended up picking the very top option. What do you think? Was I right to keep it simple? I very strongly considered option 3 and I reserve the right to switch it up because you just can't take yourself too seriously.
