So this a better pass at my brand of logos more to come! Just thought this was better to show!
almost 2 years ago
REALLY diggin the top-middle one. The top-right is a fairly close second for me, but the balance and clean look of the middle one is ill.
Though I love these to death... and I ran into this same problem with Mattox Shuler's logo... we'll call them 2 & 5, look a lot like Seth Nickerson's logo.... http://sethnick.com/
Damn it!!! I never even heard of that guy but, i did his work! What in the chances! Matt what you think I should do?
I am still working on some more comps but, these are a good start for me!
Ha... It happened to me and I had to start over.. Sucks huh?
I do love the first one a lot and I really dig that 'yankee' look from the second. Maybe combine them... somehow? And kill the little smiley 3d gloss thing from the bottom left of the circle. Flatten it. Just something to maybe try.
Personal logos are hard.
The problem is, Nick, that you can find that everything's been done before if you search hard enough. It's unfortunate how similar it looks to Seth Nick's logo though! I agree with Matt on combining the first and second ones. :) Don't let that comp go to waste!
I really enjoy the 1st one. Maybe its because its the heat of baseball season, but I feel like I'm seeing a lot of baseball style logos (which I'm not mad about b/c I love the style). So yeah, 1st gets my vote, though for craft and such they're all great!
@ Tim: I like the first one because it goes with style of illustration. making person logos are soooo tough!
@ Eli & Matt: Thanks guys!! I agree I am like damn everytime I create something someone create something similar :(! I will keep producing some more and take your guys advice! It's a huge help!! Its just a drag that my logo looks soo similar to Seth :( what in the chances would that be!
It's difficult with you sharing the same initials, just flipped. However, I don't believe that anyone owns the letter-weaving monogram. I think the execution of 2 and 5 are much different than what Seth has done. Personally, I think you're alright there.
And I agree with what Matt said. I love the style of #1 and that combined with the #2 I think would bring this one home.
That is true!!! Thanks Jacob for you kind words!! Much appreciated! I like the idea of combining the two!!! I wish I thought of it hahah... But, seriously making my own personal logo has been soooo tough
No kidding. Making anything for yourself is the hardest project on Earth!
You are always your own worst client. I'm fairly certain I could put every time I've done a self project on Clients From Hell.
The first two, and last one are sicc!!
Clients of hell? Never heard of it! Checking it out!! But, seriously yo I totally agree!
@ Ryan: Thanks :D
Here you go, Nick! http://clientsfromhell.net/

Yeah... Eli's right... You're going to spend the rest of your night on that site.
NICE!!! THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
yeah its freakin funny bro! Btw i am diggin' the bottom right one!
They look good Nick!esp top middle. I agree that no-one owns the letter weave monogram, but the purpose of branding is to stand out and be unique. So I would suggest exploring other styles, for the sake of being different. Just some thoughts
Definitely the last one. With little more work and it will be TOP.
Top-middle one. For the life!
Second one for me too. I think the terminals make it different enough from Seth's.
First one! fits your style best imo. :)
Agree with Daniel. The first one fits your style the most. I think it would work well if you took away the gloss and the circle and then tuned it up so that it's more visually strong/stable so that it can stand by itself.
They're all lookin' nice though! Keep it up!
Everybody is doing one of two things with their logo now: Hand drawn name or retro intertwined initials. I think you should stay away from these fads and go for a more unique logo.
