Trying to Design a Logo

Published October 18, 2011 - 8 Comments

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.
