First off, I want to say thank you so much to everyone who took the time to look at and critique the first logo I created for myself. After getting some great advice from people here and on Twitter, I’ve come up with a few more incarnations of my logo.
The biggest call out from the original was that the letter M was much bigger than the K which was throwing the balance off just enough to make it look strange. So here I have corrected that problem and added in my full name and exactly what it is that I do.
I wasn’t thrilled with the way the text was laid out in the second one, so for this version I made the pen smaller so the text would sit nicely just below my initials. I think this is the most successful version of this logo. Please ignore the different colors – I saved them in different formats.
At the request of more than one person, I decided to create one using the caricature of myself that I have been using on my blog and as an avatar in various locations. Personally, I think this one might be better than the others, but I would love to have you all weigh in on it too.
Here’s a black and white version just for fun. Obviously I could do this logo either in color or black in white in either inversion. I feel like this one could be more recognizable and might be a little more striking.
