If you are reading this it means I have once again made the leap to create an online presense. My first foray onto the web was in the blogosphere three years ago with Spokurban.com, my blog that focused on the emerging life of downtown Spokane. I kept Spokurban going for nearly a year and met some wonderful people in the process.
After deciding to go back to school to get a degree in graphic design I knew I would not be able to put forth the time and effort to keep up a blog like Spokurban. Knowing it was still a good resource to those living in and outside of Spokane I decided to leave the blog up while attending school.
Looking back over the design of Spokurban I can’t help but laugh. It was my first attempt at designing anything, let alone an entire website. I remember spending many late nights learning html code and figuring out how to use Photoshop. It was a great introduction to design but hopefully my taste and skills have changed dramatically in the last three years.
I vowed one day I would return to the web and I think I have finally found the niche I would like to explore: logo and brand design. Logos were the reason I decided to go back to school. The power of a well designed logo has always fascinated me. I would like to use this site to share what I learn along the way about logo and brand design.
I have to give credit to a few sources that have made me confident enough to take the plunge. First and foremost David Airey, a graphic designer living in Northern Ireland. His website has inspired, educated, and prepared me for so many aspects of the design process. He is a great source of knowledge for all graphic designers and very talented when it comes to branding a company.
I also have to thank fellow Washingtonian Jason Schuller over at Press75 for creating a beautiful and functional WordPress theme. He is amazing at what he does. Though I have changed some of the look to accommodate my personal brand the functionality of the site is all due to Jason. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for visiting and joining me on this journey. Please take some time to look around and feel free to contact me.
