I’ve actually liked this online blogging thing, and have decided to spend a little time on the image of the site. After going through multiple drafts and thinking of simple and complex designs I decided, with some assistance, that this logo to be a branding on the site.
The new Bam Done logo is based upon the pop art movement seen in the United States, one of my favorite artists Roy Lichtenstein. His use of the halftone and comic strip inspired work has made him one of my favorite American artists. The logo not only is inspired by Lichtenstein but has some other elements that I think make it a good logo.
Firstly, the era of the logo matches that of the house, built in 1968, the walk-out ranch screams late 60’s. This logo has a good tie to the era of the house that is being remodeled though its inspiration from the Pop Art era. Second, the logo contains many microdots in the halftone dither that makes up the letters, a symbolic description of the attention to detail that I have been putting into preparing this house. The logo has a star for the background identifying with things become shiny and new through the process of remodeling. Further, the lettering is a comical font; this process of getting this house ready has been fun and rewarding, and I wanted an energetic logo to express my passion for renovation and construction. Lastly, the logo itself is of the words “Bam Done!” A saying of mine for a long time that expresses my nature to sometimes just rush into things and get things done. I subscribe to the philosophy that I should do things right the first time, but sometimes, I rush into big decisions, and this house remodel has been an exciting adventure.
With that, I figured some people might want to know what’s going on with this cool new logo; but, I’ve given it some thought and I think that it’s a good one. I’m also buying stickers so let me know if you’re interested in one and we can see how I’ll get them to you. If you join the mailing list or follow the blog, I’ll try to get the first batch out to those folks.
Thanks for following!
