All the times that mom told me practice makes perfect, I am finally realizing that she may have been onto something. Now that I am older, I look around at the suavely creative people around me and envy how easy design flows from their brain to paper. When I try to do the same, it comes out a little… let’s just go with a little less than perfect. However, I have been practicing and trying my hand at doing SOMETHING imagninative each day. I am not at the level I wish to be, I find it when I am doing certain things that ideas come to me that much quicker! It feels good and it pushes me to continue on this unending quest of mine.
It also helps to have cool sites like this to give me ideas. I found this through a blog’s blogroll. It’s called Logo of the Day and it shows more than the Nike swoosh or the Target bullseye. Love how some of the symbols use the blank space to create their design or how they turn simple squiggles into the backbone for some letters. These people are not only thinking outside of the box, to me, it’s out of this world.
If you search through and find the logo for the company, Boundary, you’ll be looking at my favorite. It is simply crazy how effortless it looks yet it probably took a few hours to make.
OOOH I cannot wait to get to that level, and then break through to another.
