This was a personal-spec experiment in branding myself. I have found that I am a tough client. This was a good exercise in self editing and time management. Before I committed anything to pixels, I answered some basic questions:
- What are my strengths?
- Colors I like (#ae2024, #777 by the way)
- Designers I admire?
- Work I enjoy?
Based on my answers I started sketching as many different ideas as I could muster. Then I did a little research on other people’s branding journeys for inspiration. The option that grabbed me the most was beginning from geometric shapes (hexagons in this case). I like using basic shapes as a jump-off point sometimes, because they intrinsically just fit together.Mockup Credit: http://bit.ly/1hdjN8u
