For use when presenting personal work. This is not for a official business since I don't do that much freelance work, yet... Simply wanted a symbol to mark my work with.
You Know what David, I like it! The symbol isn't the most original idea in the world but the execution is really good and I also love the layout of everything.
Yeah I know, perhaps to obvious and plain... I was laboration between this and a more "personal" symbol but I thought this would be a bit more explanatory to what I do.
yea, also watch out for your spacing between the letters in the word David. The D A V need closing up a touch
Sure thing, so obvious now that you mention it. God I do love this place...
keming matters. :)
For sure. Keming is coming!
I like how the nodes are drawn level to each other, and not rotated. It makes them more deliberately placed, not like you drew it then rotated it, Also, the way the line tangles is a nice touch. It's one shape turned over itself, not two stacked shapes.
Your font selection is neat and tidy, and will age well. Aside from cleaning up the kerning a bit, the only thing I'd suggest is a lower-case 'b" instead of the capital letter. The icon could also be a wee bit larger next to the text.
I agree with M@. I tend to tell people to avoid light bulbs or bézier lines, but the execution is pretty cool.
I totally get that "rule". I'm like "Come on, this is to obvious. But I kind of like it" over and over again... :)
Question, would it work to flip the words like this "David by Design"? Or is that way of grammatically?
Certainly not! That wouldn't make any sense. The way you have it now is correct
Funny, this is exactly what I was thinking. It might work, in some disruptive kind of way.
I was thinking of the saying "nature by design". By flipping the words you would get a more personal touch. The thing I'm designing is a piece of me as a person.
When it comes to a personal logo, representing you as a designer, I always advise going for a signature mark rather than a regular symbol + wordmark type of thing. Being a person, I think it's better going for something more organic than a corporate style logo.
