Here's a little looksy at my latest design project I've been working on...
My critique? Well, I wasn't really sold on the name, but time was of the essence and I needed to make a decision. I'm semi-OK with it. I know it's nothing spectacular, and compared to other logo designs it's very basic. On the up side I think it conveys "me" pretty well, and given the time provided I think I busted out a passing job.
One big thing I learned in this class is that in the design business, you really can't be a perfectionist; you can't afford to. Time is money and the more time you spend nitpicking and tweaking, the less money you make. I had to tell myself at one point that these designs were good enough, even though I knew I could probably do better.
You know what I realized? We all want to be SUPERWOMAN- it's in our genes. We say, "Oh yeah I can do that, no problem!" when inside we know it's not the easiest task and will take some time. We do this to ourselves every day- constantly setting ridiculously high expectations of ourselves, then feeling bad when we don't reach them.
Do me a favor and give yourself some credit for something you did today, whatever it is, and if you feel like sharing please leave your response in the comments :)
