Opinions on a possible logo?

  • # June 6, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    I am creating a personal website. The purpose of this site is twofold:

    1. To serve as an online resume
    2. To serve as a portfolio of sorts for freelancing work
    2a. I’ll also keep a blog about stuff I like and great tutorials.

    Here’s my problem: My name is difficult to make a logo out of. But, I have an idea.

    How do you guys feel about taking a photo of myself and then turning it into a vector/vexel? Is it weird to have a vexel head in the upper-left hand corner of every page?

    Thoughts? Let me know!

    Why do you feel your name is hard to turn into a logo?

    If it’s something like this: https://twitter.com/pasql then maybe. It has to be really simple and clean.

    My initials are JKT. They just don’t seem to flow in logo form. I’ve been trying for about a week. Normally, I have NO trouble creating a logo. But this time… I’m stuck.

    If you want to know what I’m thinking, look at the top of this page. The banner of heads on the forum header is a perfect example.

    I think those are too detailed, personally.

    What about a Monogram? I’ve always loved the Tiffany logo.

    Ok, maybe I’m using the word “logo” where I shouldn’t. Let’s just call it a “portrait” in the upper-left.

    I don’t hate the Tiffany logo but it conveys a certain degree of luxury, which I’m not sure is my goal.

    My design aesthetic is very much of the Swiss/International persuasion. So, I don’t want anything to clash with it.

    I’m not following? There’s a large gap between stereotypical Swiss design and International.

    “JKT” could make a great logo, it’s all about the typeface and customisation, will show how good you are with type to potential clients/employers.

    I would call it “International” but there is still a large group of people that refer to it as “Swiss,” since that’s where it started.

    Thanks for the input. I have successfully logofied my name and I think it came out rather nice.

    Maybe I’ll give the vexel head a shot another time!
