Creating My Brand Look Book
The first step was to come up with words that describe how I want my brand to feel. The 6 words, Passion, Wonder, Whimsy, Create, Explore, and Inspire have resonated with me and my creative journey for several years and still feel relevant.
Next up was to choose a color palette. I love this bright, bold palette that has a global influence.
Then it was time to choose my fonts. I wanted letters with distinctive shapes that were also easy to read. I chose 2 fonts for my logo that match my brand personality, plus several other fonts for various purposes.
For my logo, I created a circular shape using one of my favorite doodle patterns. The green one is my main logo, but I created other color versions for times when the green one doesn’t seem quite right.
Sometime a rectangular logo fits better in the spot you want to put it.
I created 2 circular and 2 linear graphic elements to use in my branding and marketing graphics.
And because I’m a pattern designer, it seemed appropriate to create a branded pattern.
