Things are moving on a pace here at Knit Stitch Sew. I’m planning to take a stall at the local primary school summer fayre in June and am beginning to get out and about, meeting fellow bloggers where I’m asked the dreaded question “So, tell me about your blog…”
I was lucky enough to attend the Tots100 Blog Summit on Friday at the MShed in Bristol (well I was actually asked to speak to 60 bloggers as part of a PR panel but more about that another time…) and met some fab family and lifestyle bloggers all of whom have a very definite style to their blog and – generally speaking – a brand, complete with logo.
So this got me thinking. Time for Knit Stitch Sew to have its own logo. But what?! After some chats with my brother-in-law (ace freelance graphic/packaging designer) we have come to the conclusion that I should actually make a logo rather than faking it with handwriting or stitched style font. My main source of inspiration has been Meredith over at One Sheepish Girl http://onesheepishgirl.blogspot.co.uk/ and her embroidery over paper. I want my logo to have a handmade feel to it and to embody the feel of my blog – homespun, friendly, crafty and amateur (in the nicest possible sense!). So here’s my moodboard for inspiration. Watch this space for the work in progress…
