my logo

April 20, 2017

 I have to admit that my logo becomes more obscure the longer I use it.  


Would you believe it, there was a time when knitting charts and pattern copy were printed black only at the back of a book? As a book designer who could draw charts from a finished project and the manuscript copy, I became quite adept at creating symbols to distinguish the colours that mimicked the tonal value of the colours.​ 


​​​My first colour choices were red and gold. At one time, I planned to sell kits and finished products, and I wanted a logo that could easily be made into a small stamp reminiscent of the Chinese seals. 


I chose the version I use now because if you look closely, as well as my initials, you can see  "LUV" and "LOV" in the characters and that is what I wanted to project. Love of my clients and customers; the love of my work. I replaced the red with the purple because the lighter tints of this colour are almost a neutral grey, with just a hint of colour. 


 I have simplified the logo on my website and my letterhead to a single colour. And, in the future, who knows what I will do.
