In early May, I won a very incredible giveaway from Rachael @The Floral Suitcase: the opportunity to work with her on her final project for her graphic design course on my quilting logo and brand. As you might have noticed, my blog header is now updated and I am absolutely *thrilled* with the results!
I really had no idea what to expect when Rachael told me that I had won her giveaway, and I want to walk you through my experience. Rachael started out with some basic questions to get a feel for my likes and dislikes (color / style / inspiration, etc.). She also wanted to know what bloggers and businesses I admire.
In terms of style, I really like old, retro rocket spaceship designs along with some old sewing needle adds that I had found online. I would really like something that conveys both “quilting” and “jet” or “space” to go with my brand, Quilting Jetgirl. My taglines that I use are “Out of this World Quilts” or “Sewing at the Speed of Sound”.
Based on my initial feedback, she created some quick sketches and asked me to narrow down to 3 to develop into mock-ups.
I had a hard time picking out 3 from this super creative list, but with the help of my husband we narrowed down tp 3. Rachael quickly sent the initial batch of mock-ups:
Which after feedback evolved into:
Which turned into a variety of options:
That became my final logo!
I am amazed and so grateful to Rachael for her work. She was excellent to work with, and if you are interested in getting help with your own logo or branding, I would highly recommend visiting her blog, The Floral Suitcase, and contacting her for more information on how to proceed!
Much discussion has been happening recently with regard to branding, logo consistency, etc. and I am so lucky for this opportunity to take a fresh look at the topics for Quilting Jetgirl. I am excited to continue to evolve, tweak, and modify this for a consistent look across my social media platforms, so stay tuned.
Many, many thanks, Rachael; I am so thrilled with your work!! 🙂
Also, many thanks to my generous and helpful husband. He worked with me to create my first logo that was just retired, and I appreciate all his hard work and patience helping me feel confident stepping out and starting this journey.
