Yes this blog had a logo lol. It looked like this.
I wanted a sort of playful yet simplistic logo design… Something that would stick in memories, but I lost interest with it over time. I didn’t like orange and red with the vanilla background, well I did like it, but not for the blog site. So I started over. de- stands for design. So I started with there.
I’ve unintentionally established a light mini-van looking blue theme throughout the inception of Design That Is IT. This was apparent in my header picture, my assortment of backgrounds, and even some of my design blog posts.
Right, so I tried something to get things turning. This is what I came up with….
And I thought it was a good start, but I didn’t want to recreate the Facebook wheel fused with the Traffic sign wheel. So I made the circle pitch white and made the -d blue. But that wasn’t enough, Design That Is IT was scarcely highlighted. Hence this below.
So i resurrected the highlighted green and went with something more bright and boxy.
One of the cool things about design and art is that you revise and revise and revise until you end up with something that makes you feel what you want it to feel. -de. But i wasn’t done, no. It was too heavy. I was reminded of the blog that inspired me to start Design That’s IT. Minimally Minimal by a young and talented Microsoft Designer. He is a minimalist to some degree, and his logo is just that, if you have good vision of course.
Did you catch it? Its light, its simplistic, its not Design That Is IT, and I mean that in the utmost respect. Design That Is IT isn’t minimally minimal but it does lean towards Minimal, and I thought the above design would be a great reference to put the finishing touches on Design That Is IT’s logo design. So I added transparency, lol, I have no shame in revealing the simplicity involved in my design process.
I like it right now. I won’t like it in the future, which is good. It, as well as the design of the whole site, is under constant revision. That’s the wonderful thing about design, its an endless process. I will keep you guys updated on the spontaneous design revisions of Design That Is IT. Cheers!
