This is a drawing of the real Mr Smarty Squid. He is the mascot for my professional blog also aptly named Smarty Squid. Fancy that?! I’m in the process of designing a logo for this blog so he has come out of hiding his place to give me some inspiration. Do you like it? Well, BIOMYLH!
Squirt (that’s gooodbye in squid) and thanks for stopping by!
This is my crude version of the Chrome logo to symbolise my frustration with connecting to the Internet this week. Argh! What kind of turkeys build ADSL lines that gets locked up if you use an outdated modem? The nonchalant ones, me thinks. Surely, there is a signal box in the NBNCo headquarters that keeps beeping/flashing to indicate that this particular line (ours!) has suddenly locked up. And all our service provider has to do is ring NBNCo to press a simple button to unlock it right? Well, I do hope that’s exactly what they’re doing! I really don’t think you can BIOMYLH this week.
This logo took me a while to design and complete. Only because I was also learning how to navigate a new design software. Originally I wanted to use an online logo maker company but they couldn’t do what I had in mind. Plus most of the logos looked pretty tacky. Yuk! So I used my graphic design skills and created this one. The font I used is called TimeBurner, which I downloaded free from here. I still need to tweak the logo a bit but I’m happy with this one. What do you think?
