It’s exciting times around here. We just recently hit 200+ RSS subscribers and we have a Diwali 2007 Giveaway going on. In the midst of all this, I had won a contest at the ProBlogger Birthday Bash. The prize was a logo design by the famous Graphic Designer, David Airey!
He was wonderful to work with and provided so many iterations with all my change requests. If you are looking for a graphic designer, I recommend David whole heartedly. He is your man. The final version of the logo is what you see now at the top. You will also see the new Favicon in your browser window/tab.
If you had read our About page and actually not fallen asleep reading it, you might have read our motto. That is to be a ‘shining beacon in the web’, helping you find the jewels & gems that are usually drowned out by the ones that aren’t. That’s the theme of this logo design. I am thinking of changing the title description reflecting this. Something like ‘A Shining beacon in the web for your technology needs’. Think it’s corny? Got something better? Let me know in the comments.
A logo for a blog is very important for building branding as well as easy recognition by readers. Without a logo, the blog name may not stick with them if they visited us months later. I had postponed creating a logo and a favicon for the 7 months of this blog’s existence. That has changed now! I am real excited about this significant addition amongst other changes like our new theme.
Thanks David for the great design! My wife and I love it.
I would love to hear what you think.
