So I’ve been working on updating my personal branding as I’ve needed to create an actual invoice for some freelance work. Not having done much freelance work on the side, at least the kind that actually pays, I’ve put off creating such documents and getting cards made, etc. Basically, I’m looking to become legit. I know big steps right…
With that in mind, I was playing around with my logo some more. I’ve liked the mark, but not been satisfied with how the logo could be extended to other applications. It was always nice in isolation, but never felt part of the whole. So I was messing about with it today and feel much better about it now. I worked it so that the overall mark is not quite so wide, but is also incorporated into the full “NumeroSeven” name. Nice how there’s an N at both ends eh? But with the minimized width, it feels more similar to the rest of the characters and not as excessively wide. I’m still working out what additional fonts to pair with this for the remaining information; my name, number, etc. I’ll most likely go with a sans serif as paring the rounding qualities of this may feel at odds with a serif.
So the idea is that when the name would appear as “NumeroSeven” you would see the word-mark on the left with the respective parts of the N logo in color, and if the logo is in isolation, it would be the N logo on the right.
I’m open to thoughts, suggestions, feelings on color. I’m not settled on a specific color, though my favorite is probably the teal or red option.
