When you create a blog or website, there’s a list of things you need to do before it goes live. Today I’m going to share how I went through the process of getting a logo for Kitchen Thyme.
As soon as I had my website name and url picked out, my son told me to check out 99 Designs to have a logo made. I checked out all of the different logo packages and decided to go with The Logo and Social Media Pack.
After you select your package, they show you many logo designs to gauge what logo style you’re leaning toward. The designs that I chose were modern and on the feminine side. You need to select a few colors that you’d like in your design and choose the design budget (below) that’s right for you. I picked the Bronze Package.
Then I chose the “Guaranteed” Contest Option.
As soon as I paid for my package, the designers started uploading their designs for my review. They encouraged me to give them feedback so I could help them move in the right direction with their design.
The Logo contest was fun. It lasted for 3 days. I was glued to my computer because I was so curious to see what they would come up with. I rated each design publicly on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. This helped the designers see what I liked and didn’t like about each design.
The clock was ticking. When the time was up for the design phase, I narrowed it down to 5 of my favorite designers. They went head to head on finalizing their logos, while I gave each one of them feedback.
The choice was very hard. I ended up picking this one!
I bought the thyme photo (above) from iStock so he could use it in the social media design.
Now that I have my own logo design, I can have business cards or stationary made with my own unique logo.
So…if I could do it over, would I go through 99 Designs to create a logo again? Yes, I would! I enjoyed having many designers give me their ideas. I asked for a hip, feminine design using the colors orange and green and I wanted a bit of thyme in it. I ended up with a simple, yet modern design that I love!
