We’re all looking for the highest, fullest expression of ourselves as human beings. And unless you’re doing that…unless you’re finding a way for what you believe to be true about yourself to express and manifest itself in the world, you are not living your fullest live. —-Queen Oprah
Repost of the tee, my bad.
Coming soon! #KillPink
And others! Over thinking it like shit!
One of the first Kill Pink logos! Super glad I practiced patience on that one until I thought of something better
Although the logo for Kill Pink may not seem like much to the majority, it means a lot to me considering everything that I went through just to come up with something so simple.
Initially when I thought of the name Kill Pink, I immediately felt as though I had to have a serious logo. I came up with all kinds of concepts that include a gun, knife, hand grenades, etc. And although these things all related to the “kill” portion of the brand, I still didn’t feel like it fit. I thought that doing something so detailed wouldn’t translate well on labels, t-shirts, acrylics, etc.
So a couple nights ago, I was asleep and was having a really weird dream. In the dream, I was at this t-shirt factory and the creator was asking me if I had a logo. I said “No,” and then start detailing previous ideas that I had. He said “Oh my GOD! You are seriously over thinking this. Just draw something and lets go.” A few minutes later, I woke up and just put it on paper (see above and don’t clown my writing; I DID just wake up from sleeping).
Yea, lots of dramatics there but I’m very happy with what it looks like. Again, it’s simple…and will translate well on other products.
Rule of thumb for everyone reading: Don’t over think it. Sometimes simplicity is okay. Think of some of your favorite brands and their logos. McDonalds, Apple, etc. Simple, right?
