I’ve said it before. I’ll say it again. I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination. So when it comes to making websites, graphics, or logos… if it doesn’t come with a template, then it’s going to look like crap.
So yesterday I spent some time trying to design a logo for my dream project. I’ve discovered something about logo design. It’s not cheap. Starting at $199 and up. Wow.
Then there are do-it-yourself sites that give you an assortment of symbols and only charge you when you have finalized things the way you like it. Those are priced around $70.
I threw this design out to Twitter and Google+ looking for feedback, and got next to nothing. (Thank you Cathy and Bill for replying) I figured that I would put it on the blog and ask people what they thought… before I slap down $70 on it.
Bill mentioned that the symbol didn’t match the company name, but that he still thought that it looked good. I pointed out that the symbol is a computer mouse. When I came up with the name of the company, I chose “Write-Click” as a bit of a tongue in cheek to “writing on the computer… and right-clicking a mouse”… So I think it’s relevant, but I may be assuming too much from people who aren’t familiar with the backstory. I dunno.
Write-Click Media is my outlet for my blogging / writing / internet marketing ventures. It’s been in existence for a couple of years now, but has been moving along at a snail’s pace. It’s time to speed things up a little, and part of that is getting the “business” side of the house in order.
A company logo is part of that.
Any thoughts, comments, questions, criticisms would be welcome.
