Today, we are going to design the logo for the WordPress blog we are creating. As you might know, Project WordPress evolves around an actual blog we were asked to design. What we are also revealing today is where you can find the blog and see it in live action.
So far, we’ve covered the following parts in Project WordPress:
Part 1: How to install WordPress
Part 4: Creating your blog layout.
Part 5: Logo design
This is what we have after the last part (click on the image to enlarge):
…and do you want to see what we are going to create? Right, we knew it. We have to let it out.
Introducing a Blog
Okaaaaaay, here goes. The blog design we created is for a person who got into blogging and was looking for a nice and special WordPress theme. The blog was supposed to stick out from the rest. It had to look like her, and communicate within the same lines the content she writes does, and support her style. The blog is about women in business, and the blogger herself is is a business woman who is very successful as a private consultant.
In the past, she has worked for big companies and earned her spores there. A couple of years ago, she ventured into starting her own business as a consultant, which proved to be the right step to do, as she explained to us - and she is blogging about her exciting experiences right now, over at her blog for women in business.
Yeeees, we want to introduce her first before we give you the link! So this business woman is now writing on her blog - here comes the link - for women in business, and you are cordially invited to follow her on her ongoing quest to find the best way of life as a private business consultant, who not long ago met the love of her life. She blogs about balancing work and private life to get the best of both worlds. She is also very health oriented and likes to share some very tasty fruit drink recipes, dirty laundry, and the role of women in business, and much more. It is really worth a read. Please pay her a visit and kindly leave a comment on her blog if you like what she writes!
Oh, and yes, the blog’s name is Bunny got Blog. Here is a screenshot:
Now let’s cut to the chase and show you how we designed the logo. We’ll start with Illustrator and then move on to Photoshop to finish the design. In the following parts of Project WordPress, we’ll design the blog header and body, go into styling with CSS and coding with PHP. Read on…
