New year, new try for getting illustration and design side jobs. I’ve really got to work on being more professional, which means working on my “brand.” Logos for myself are where I usually get stuck. When doing research, I have found that most illustrators have one of their best pieces or characters over (or beside or under) their name in a unique font. Designers usually have either a clever, type-based logo or a slick symbol made of their initials; or, if their business has a name outside of their own, they play off of that. What does a “designistrator” do? A fun character with excellent type? Type only? Since my strength is character design, and my last name is Lemon, I thought I’d take the easy route and create a character specifically for my logo. At the moment it is still in sketch phase…tonight I will research type faces.
Please feel free to give suggestions, feedback, etc.
