After months of waiting and prep work, Kevin’s Cards officially has a new logo and business card!
When I first arrived at my graphic arts class, my original plan was to create a business card for people to keep in touch. But according to Professor Carol Brown, she suggested that I created a logo to have a better identification! So I took her advice and started creating some ideas on what my logo should look like.
First, I thought of how to combine art with a greeting card and created several sketches. When it all came together, it was Kevin’s Cards inside a greeting card, on an easel, with the “K” made out of different sizes of paintbrushes, and the “C” as a painter’s palette. I thought that was going to be the winning logo.
However, Professor Danielle pointed out that it was a little too much, so it was back to the old drawing board! She suggested to keep it simple, so she came up with three suggestions for potential logos:
#1- The letters “KC” as a greeting card
#2- The “K” as a paintbrush
#3- The “C” as a palette
It was a really tough decision for me to choose, so I decided to take a survey from my fellow peers to see what they would like. Although a majority of people liked option 2 because it represented me as a painter, in the end, I decided to go with the first option because it is Kevin’s Cards after all. Plus, it makes a lot of sense to use it, since it’s mainly about my cards. Although, some people might think that the KC stands for Kansas City, but they’ll probably get the idea once they see the website.
Once the logo was ready, it was on to the business card. I decided to make the background color of my card sort of a dark purple mainly because of the Sacramento Kings, but hey, it was my choice of preference, and it matches the purple K.
Now that my logo and business cards are ready, this will definitely make my website more exciting and hopefully people will start seeing my webpage. Plus, the new cards that are created will now use this logo instead of my actual picture.
I’d like to thank Carol and Danielle for helping me put these things together because if I haven’t taken this graphic arts class, I would never have any of this! Let’s hope that Kevin’s Cards continues to soar to new heights!
