Logo a Day Project Update

It’s been about 2 weeks since we’ve started our Logo-A-Day Project, and wanted to give you an update.

First of all, when I say ‘our” and “we”, it hasn’t been true. I have been running Deluxemodern and the Dear Miss Modern shop on my own since the beginning of February. That might not seem like a big deal, especially since really, I have only had actual help for the past 6 months. {and had been doing everything on my own for the past 5 years}.

But the last 6 months -well, the last year actually- have been, to put it mildly HUGE for us. {There I go again, with the “us”}. We have tripled our client base, opened the Dear Miss Modern shop , and have quite a lengthy client wait list. So to be suddenly faced with doing everything myself again was quite a shock. So many emails and questions to answer, all the social media stuff {have you noticed a lack of blog posts}? All the client projects and design, managing the wait list, bookkeeping, etc.

Let me be clear: I’m not complaining. It’s just that sometimes it’s hard to feel creative when faced with massive stacks of “office” work that is truly enough for 3 people. The reason I’m telling you this: I decided to start the Logo-A-Day project right  in the middle of way-to-much-going-on-already. There are several explanations as to why I decided this would be a good idea: A). I’m crazy, or B). to make darn sure I didn’t start to slack creatively. I’m going with both. I knew that doing this would keep me creative while juggling everything else. And it has. Some logos have been more exciting that others, but they completely depend on my mood. I usually get up, get my kids ready for school, and while my husband is dropping them off, create the logo of the day in my pajamas, before even one sip of coffee. Sometimes (like today) I knew what I wanted to do before I got out of bed. Antlers. It had to be antlers. Yesterday I messed around with something I didn’t like for a good half hour, then did something completely different at the last minute and it sold within the hour. It’s fun, and I think some of you even look forward to it. I know I do. So if you sent an email and it took a while for “us” to get back to you, now you know why. Thank you for your patience. And oh yeah, we will be a we again starting this Tuesday March 20th. {the first day of spring} and I’m looking forward to a very sunny future!

Here are a few of my favorites, all of which can be found in the Dear Miss Modern Shop:
