The other month I decided to bite the bullet and get a logo for myself. It’s scary paying a designer for a logo. Maybe that’s just me. Still, for me, paying someone to discuss and design a logo that worked for me, for all my stuff, was a bit odd. I do it myself. I make happily mostly crappy but serviceable logos.
Except I needed to stop and make one logo that would do everywhere. It was just time. And so I went to Dylan Todd (also here on twitter). I’d been a fan of his logo design for a while, so the chance to work with him made it more fun.
And we chatted some and he went off to his DesignCave (it’s like a Batcave, but cooler, I think) and came back with the goods. And now I have a logo that works in a horizontal and square form and is good for websites, banners at cons and biz cards. And anything else I might need to put a logo on.
So I ordered new cards, planning on having cards that didn’t look like crap for the first time ever. They came in last night:
Uhhh. Yeah. They are awesome.
So, remember: don’t be afraid to hire an awesome designer when you need one.
