In my introduction, I talked about being a foodie, a delusional chef and how I love traveling and eating... However as wonderful as that sounds we all must make a living, am I right or am I right?... :)


Well, if you allow me,  I wanted to share with you what I was doing today.... oh before I forget to tell you, I design logos, social media art, website icons, etc... Better I show you....

 

I was busy with this client the whole day...The first attempt is the concept I most enjoyed making.

 
 
 
 

My second attempt... Which I thought looked very good! (modesty aside)... In my head I, though, I have this client in the bag! :D

 

But I didn't!... All my hard work was rejected as quick as the client opened the email. So it was back to the board.

The first logo, it was said to have missed the point of the company, which I can accept, a misunderstanding can happen. The second logo was quickly dismissed just because it was too common... you know what that means? It is like telling a mother your kid is just like all other kids, nothing special about it. (ok, ok, comparison a bit drastic!)

Anyways, in this business, there is no time to be sad and grief, hands on the job right away...

 

My third attempt was the charmer! and I knew it as soon as I hung up the phone with the client. 

 
 

The thing is, this happens quite often, the first designs are almost never the ones that make the cut. Why? Well, because conceptualizing someone's ideas is really hard... Many times I wish I could see what they see in their minds, sadly that would not be considered designing, but it would help me very much! Oh ... and by the time I had the logo done, the client decided slogan has to change too :D!...hahaha (let me laugh it out). In all fairness, it was a cool client and a cool project. 


Let me know what you think below!

Dankjewel! :)

Ik snap je helemaal! Ik maak weliswaar geen logo's, maar sieraden. Na een brede omschrijving en een aantal pogingen stel ik mezelf vaak dezelfde vraag.
| 03:18 |
sieraden zijn nog moeilijker om custom te maken, denk ik...

Good job! I would prefer the shake-hands, but the client is king.
| 23:13 |
Thank you! :)

Heel goed gedaan! :)

Dankjewel!

That's interesting, you have to be very creative in that branch, to feel what the client wants and to visualize it. Very good blog, Aida. :-)
| 20:16 |
Hi Rudi...yes, it is a really competitive and creative branch... visualizing the client's ideas is the most difficult part, but that's why good communication is always the key, making the right questions and listening. Thanks for the comments :)

my pleasure, Aida :-)

Mooi logo hoor
| 18:39 |
Welke van de 3?
| 18:40 |
De laatste, echt mooi
| 18:41 |
Dat was uiteindelijk the one!
| 18:43 |
Dacht ik, de andere waren te simpel geweest ;-)
| 18:44 |
hihihi ok...

Die met die handen schudden (tweede), gebruikten wij vroeger in een iets andere vorm voor kinderkampen in Bulgarije... Ben helaas het logo kwijt, anders had je het kunnen zien. Wij hadden als hoofdkleur ton rood in de hand en ik meen grijs/wit in de tweede hand. Zeker ben ik niet meer, is een tijd gelden dat ik daar mee bezig ben geweest. Zeker 12 jaar...
| 18:50 |
Oh wat gaaf! Dus ben je ook een graphic Designer?...
Ja, die met die handen is veel te veel gebruikt ik snap het.
| 20:08 |
Nee, dat niet, maar we moesten toen een logo, wij hadden een kinderhand en een volwassen hand. Hiermee nodigden ze de kinderen uit om te komen naar de kinderkampen.

oh zo... toch leuk...
| 21:41 |
Dat is balen zeg. Je hebt er toch je best voor gedaan. Op naar een andere pitch en opdrachtgever.
| 18:09 |
Dankjewel... another day done! :)
Welke van de 3 logo's vind je mooiste?
| 18:38 |
Shake hands!
| 18:41 |
helaas, dat was niet de keuze van klant...
| 18:44 |
Jammer!
