ok, i put up this first try at my new logo and i think i hate it. it just doesn’t go. maybe if i photog the beads on a white background instead…? hmmmmm.
now on it’s own, i love this logo it’s bright and colourful and kinda funky – exactly what i want it to be. at the same time, i love this theme and chose it cuz it’s so calm and clean but now i’m wondering if my beads are too far to the other extreme. My designs are usually very color rich so maybe i need a funkier theme? but then i might have to worry about clashing… aaaarrrrgggghhh!!! this is why people pay for professional designers.
oh well, back to the drawing board.

Congratulations on your new blog! I know can all seem very overwhelming at first. The nice thing is nothing is written in stone – I say if you are not sure about the design, sit on it for a few days and think about it. It’s a lot too be thinking about design and content all at the same time.
I agree, on its own, I love the logo… and one its own, I love the colour scheme of the web site, but the two may not necessary be doing what u’re setting out to do… but then again, if you didn’t have that “pre-conceived” idea of what you wanted to say, it would be ok too. But yea, if you were going for the calm look, then your beads don’t reflect calm, but they are very good! why not look into another template (with bright colours) that would go with the beads.
All that said, I kinda like the juxtaposition of the calm and the busy beads! Besides, you only get to see the two together when you first enter the sight, the header doesn’t follow you through the page so you get calm again as you read the page…. So yea, I like it very much!
