I’ve made a new logo. I wanted it to be recognizable even when it’s a small size in the etsy shop.
This was my first one I made last year, coinciding with my new glasses.
I enjoyed making it using my favorite material and trying to show some class with posh glasses and a few orange loops to symbolize my red hair. Recently I decided it was too busy and since I’d like to get a stamp for my leather work and for a business card I wanted a logo which was simplified.
I went to Pinterest and searched logos. There is so much to see, I found the psychology of colours in logos pretty interesting. Though I didn’t use it when making my own, I don’t know why. Here is a great infographic by http://www.musedesigns.ca.

I love these but I wanted something that I could stamp on leather so next I asked https://www.facebook.com/Sorelladesignsuk/ to make me one since I had seen logos she had done for other small companies and loved them. In the end she made me a smart simple logo. This is it –
I think it is very urban chic unisex and elegant, which is just what I asked for. I really like it but… Unfortunately when I put it as my logo on my etsy shop it didn’t really show up well in the small box. It didn’t look like a recognizable symbol when it was small.
And finally I played around with the app Canva and came up with my own, what do you think? I hope it is simple, clear and recognizable when tiny. I tried to get the heart to be tan leather colour since I’m working with leather so much recently. I was going for an image that was neither very masculine nor feminine since I’m working on accessories for men too.
Do you have a logo you love?
I have to say the Diet Coke logo is my favorite since I love the drink! And of course, I wish I was drinking it on the beach in the photo by diet coke.com
Have a great day!
