Hello Lovely people. I have been working on branding myself a little better, so that any samples I send out have a logo and that Lemony “flavor” of my style. Branding…it’s a whole other kettle of fish. From my work with branding events, you’d think branding myself would be relatively simple, but…it’s a lot harder, as I am attempting to build something lasting rather than an event with a new theme every year. And, AND because it’s so personal, I never feel I have it quite right. However, I have given myself a deadline to order business cards, soo…I give to you 2 logos:
I’ve been Nancy Lemon as long as I’ve been an artist, but I’ve been Nancy Carney for almost 2 years. I like the ferris wheel AND the lemon tree. At least they have similar shapes. I was thinking I could keep Lemon’s Tree as the blog of Nancy Lemon Carney, the artiste. There was also the thought that I should put the website and blog all under one url: lemonstree.com. Or maybe I’m just worrying too much, and need to make a dang decision. On the good side, I think they both reflect my “brand” as they are sketchy in style, use hand drawn type (which I’ve really been loving doing lately), and they are kind of silly/whimsical.
I may redraw the ferris wheel here, as the cars on the wheel are a little too big. I think they are both pretty fun, though. Thoughts on either, or both?? Comments welcome, good people.
