So after seeing Alberto Ovideo‘s site i felt like I needed to create a logo. My name is quite long and there must be a better way of presenting it in one long line which takes up a lot of space. So I took the image i am using as the centre of by branding and made colour swatches from it. One dark tone (for text) one medium tone (for divs backgrounds) and one light (for page background) I may switch these around but at least now i have consistent colours.
I used light tone and dark tone from my colour swatch for these.
My eye is naturally drawn to the one on the right, it seems more professional and thought out, but i am still not 100 percent on it.
