Wow! I haven’t posted on here since last year. Haha.
But on a serious note, I have been quite busy developing my logo design skills, and have even taken on some other clients. It’s been a pretty crazy ride so far.
I still don’t consider myself a total pro, but I’m working on mastering my craft every day which is what matters the most to me. Before I know it I will be running my own logo design business and doing what I love every day.
In honor of the new year I have started studying more about running an online business so I can compete with all the other logo designers online. There are TONS of them on Fiverr alone, so I am really going to have to step up my game if I want to score more customers. There is plenty of business out there for everyone though which gives me comfort to know.
Also, I don’t think that my logo design skills are going to be enough. I will need an effective way to market myself and look professional above others, so I will need to start studying that too. In order to learn the information better and make sure I fully grasp it, I am going to start posting some of the business and marketing materials I’m working with.
Hope you guys are looking forward to it. Talk soon.
Hello all, I hope that everyone one of you is doing wonderful on this fine day!
If you have been following me at all, you may have noticed that I finally took a step towards getting into graphic design, and that I created a mock logo for my husband’s tree care company, Nashville Tree Tacklers.
I’m happy to announced that my husband was pretty impressed with my first mock up!
That is such a relief because as a beginner logo designer, I was a little conscious of my work. I knew that my first logo wouldn’t be drop dead gorgeous, but decent considering my background in all things art and creativity.
Since creating my first logo I have already created 5 more – not all great, not terrible, and sadly enough, I have seen worse. This gives me hope for my future designs lol.
I’m not sure if this is something that I would want to do by itself because I feel like if I did that, I wouldn’t have much time to pursue my other artistic projects like making jewelry, painting, and taking pictures outdoors and in.
To be honest, I do like logo design a LOT, and can see myself doing it in the future. Maybe I just found my true calling, ha. I guess we will see.
If you know me even a little by now from reading my first post on this blog along with the about page, you may know that I love every little thing that has to do with the arts. I also mentioned that I wanted to try to get into graphic design on top of all of it.
So last night after all of my family were asleep, I decided to jump in my computer seat and see what I could do. Since my husband owns his own tree trimming business I thought it would only be appropriate to do one for him first. Funny enough, he really didn’t even have a solid logo until this one:
What do you think?
I know it’s certainly not the best logo for a tree service that I have ever seen, but I have also seen a lot that look a lot worse than that. I will probably end up re-doing it a few times and to be honest, I haven’t even gotten a chance to show my husband yet, but I’m sure he will love it – and not because it was made by his wife.
I know that I definitely need some better graphics, but how much more basic can you get with a logo for a tree trimming company? Most of the ones I have seen don’t have much other than leaves, trees, or some other variation to them, so for the time being I am not sure what else to do.
I think I am going to look at some of the other tree services around the ENTIRE Nashville, TN area so that my husband’s company logo can be highly unique. Since everyone else’s have pretty much just looked the same, I was to go for something different. I want my husband’s tree service to be the best in town, and with that comes a sophisticated logo. Don’t you agree?
If you know anything about tree trimming the tree industry as a whole, and would like to give me some input for my husband’s new logo, please contact me with the details. It would be tremendously appreciated! Thank you guys in advance!
Here’s to creating the best tree trimming service logo in the entire city.
Hey, hey, hey, it’s Danielle. Coming at you with my very first post on this blog. In honor of that, I wanted to take a little more time to tell my future visitors a little more about me and my life. If you missed the start, check out my about page.
I am an artist of many different calibers. I like photography, music, painting, sculpting, making jewelry. Basically, if it has to do with art, I’m in love with it, which is a creative vibe that I would like to pass down to my children some day. One of my biggest goals is to help them use as much of their creativity as they possibly can. If you couldn’t already tell, this is something that we work towards often.
My husband actually owns his own tree care business that serves all of the Nashville, TN area, so he stays pretty busy mostly every day. It’s actually called Nashville Tree Tacklers so if you are in the area and need your trees taken care of, he’s your guy. The business is doing really well which is why he has to be gone all the time. Hopefully soon he can hire a few technicians to replace him so that we can spend more time as a family. He hasn’t been in business for too long yet, so it may be a while before we really see how things will go.
When my kids are doing their own thing and my husband is out trimming and removing trees, I enjoy the peace of tapping deeper into my creativity so I can create great art for my career. And not just great art, but memorable art. I want to be known for something totally original and unique.
This is why I work so hard towards sharpening my creativity and bringing it out more to play, and why you are probably going to see me talking a lot about personal growth on here. So get ready!
See you all soon!
