Personal Branding Idea

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Despite I'm not a great designer (I make 99% of my designs on MS Paint, and this is not an exception), I would like to have a personal design/identity, to use in design-related sites, like this (the profile pic I'm currently using is the logo of my blog).

 

So, for the design I wanted to use the initials of my name: VMR, putting them all together in a good looking design/shape. And this is what I came up with:

Let me know what you think about the design and how would you improve it!

It's not bad, but my mind immediately went to Michael Phelps's personal logo:

I didn't read this as "VMR". I simply read it as MR.

Agreed.

Maybe put the V on top of the M and work from there?

 

Do you mean something like this?

This looks pretty good but I much prefer the logo in your avatar.

 

Thanks, but I would rather use a personal logo intead of my blog's.

Fair enough.  I only commented because I really like that logo.  The way the colour gradient sticks out is really eye catching.

Now it looks like "VIVIR" or the Spanish word for to live.

 

Indeed, it looks like "Vivir", I hadn't realized that.

 

How about this?

Forcing the idea isn't really working here.  The M is so prominent that the V gets lost in the shuffle.  Being clever only goes so far but you're asking too much from the mashing of 3 letters here.

 

Let it go, find a different idea.

 

Do what I did and many others have:  Come up with 4-8 ideas - just ideas - about how to take VMR and make it into different shapes or alignments with different fonts.  Think outside the box a little bit.  I know you're just starting out, but you should be able to do all of this in paint.  Go to dafont.com or fontsquirrel and download any/all fonts that excite you, drop them into your computers Fonts/Fontbook folders, and play with them.

Yeah, you're right. Thanks for suggestion.

 

I'll be working on it, and if I come up with some good ideas, I'll post them. Thank you guys for the C&C.
