Yesterday a WordPress update came out, and it reset some of my original size settings for my blog themes. When I went back to adjust them, I realized that it didn’t take much to make both of my sites look gross and outdated.
And since my bread blog is starting to gain traction, I figured it was time for an update.
It took me most of the day yesterday to figure out what I wanted in my logo, and it took me even longer to implement it and make sure it looked good on mobile and on iPad. But I’m feeling pretty proud of the result.
Here’s the first logo for my bread blog, Breadbythehour.com. I looked at similar bread blogs for inspiration, and I went from there. I went through several redraws before I got the look that I wanted. And I loved it.
But then my sister, who’s a genius with logos, gave me a few pointers and together we made this.
And I think it’s so much better than what I had before. Clearly my sister’s got mad skills.
My only problem is that I haven’t figured out how to make it look just as great when it’s small as when it’s big. I’m pretty sure I’d have to make this as a vector image rather than a rasterized one, but I don’t have any skills in that department. So I guess I’ll live with slight pixels around the edges when things get squashed or stretched.
What do you think of the new logos? Do you like them? Or do you have suggestions for better logos? Let me know in the comments below!
