Personal Branding Logo

Brief from client 

This is a starting point for a new personal logo, I am looking for some ideas on how to make this better. I am unsure on color scheme yet. I wanted to focus on the initial design first. Thanks!

I found this font that I feel works better, thoughts?

well dang- I just wrote you a book on your previous post....and you fixed a lot of that here! lol

Font- yes, I like this better. See my previous comments about the pencil re: simplifying and working in black and white. =)

I really appreciate the feed back, as for the colors, this is only a 3 color design, with blue, peach and dark grey, I just used different tints of these colors. This is how it would look in grayscale

Looks very appealing, but you need a short form of this logo. Think about the various contexts in which it will be used. It is great for print, maybe even on a business card. But if you ever take it on a website or mobile? This mark and so much text will be a disaster for branding purposes.

Also the 'designer' will be completely lost, it weighs in last on the entire logo, you could remove it entirely.

PS: could you share font name, I love it!

The font is called Dosis, it is free from Font Squirrel, and I was thinking about this for the short form logo.

These would be the 3 different versions of the logo

Lose the pencil, lose the word 'designer', then call it a day. The type has a warm and sophisticated feeling. The rest of the elements muddle it.

I agree with Rob that the pencil symbol is way too complicated and needs to go.

What I usually advise to designer creating they own logo is to consider it not as a corporate logo, with the ubiquitous symbol + word mark + subtext equation.

It should represent you, as a human being, not as a company. It should be more like a visual signature than anything else. A monogram is always a good choice, for exemple. Remember to keep things simple. When people see you logo, they should know that you are a designer without you having to spell it out for them.

Keep it up!
