New Logo, Website Redesign

Richard and I are working on a website re-design. We’ve decided, in consultation with our friends in marketing at Boyds Mills Press, that we need to make it more user-friendly and find better ways to highlight some spanking new content.

For a start, here’s my brand new logo design.

logoWhat do you think?

I am also spending time learning new tools that should make my work and home life easier. I am learning to use Evernote, an information management tool. I was introduced to the program by some of my writer friends in the Southern Breeze Region of SCBWI. I used it to some good effect this year while working on two curriculum development projects. I decided to invest some time in watching some tutorials to refine the way I use it. It’s been interesting, and I feel like I will be better able to keep track of the components that go into projects.

    I like this logo much better! Besides the fact that it doesn’t make my eyes water, I like the partridge-family-esque leaves! It’s much more dynamic.

  • Nice! I like that the leaves evoke nature, which so much of your work focuses on. The only thing that throws me a little is the type inside the image. My eyes kept trying to figure out what words they were and not being able to figure out was a tad frustrating. Hope this feedback helps!

    Striking! The words inside the eye unsettle me a bit, but also evoke a sense of the unity of seeing/photographing/writing as a way we make sense of the world. What would happen if you added a thin black line under your name more like your first logo?

    I keep wanting to figure out what the writing in the black circle behind the camera says. Like the leaves. Like the colors. Can’t wait to see the new website design!
