A Whole New Look

Once I decided to open a second shop, I knew it was time to revisit some graphic designers. My new shop would need its own identity and my old shop needed a new logo that would reflect my current drawing style. So, being as my previous designer was not offering as many design services any more, off I went to shop around.

The main considerations for me were style and stability. I wanted someone who would give me a design I loved AND be able to give me follow up services as I needed them--buttons, small ads, etc.

So I began searching etsy, comparing designers styles, services, and rates. And I was excited to find that one of my favorite designers also offered custom design services. I had long admired Michelle's sketchy organic style and she was a natural fit for the loose, classy vision that I had. I wanted something swirling and organic. Something with a curvaceous, stylish font. Something easily sophisticated. That's pretty much the guidance I gave her and I am delighted with the results.

My new logo:

And the new look in my shop:

In honor of having my new brand officially complete (well except for business cards, but those will get here soon!) I will be having a Grand Opening Sale starting tomorrow and running through May 5th! You, as my lovely blog readers, are the first to know. The sale will be for 20% off all purchases (simply buy and wait for a revised invoice before paying, shipping is not discounted). If you also add the code "BLOGGITY" in the note to seller, I will throw in a set of teeny tiny cards as an extra thank you. : )
