*****UPDATED DESIGN BRIEF*********
ABOUT MY BRAND
I am a craftsman, with a focus on elegant furniture that is handmade from sustainable resources. Last month, I ran a 99designs contest for my company logo. (See Heights Modern Woodworks competition).
I am 30 years old. So any artistic rendering of me should look professorial, but not like an old guy. (Self Portraits attached)
HOW I WILL USE THIS LOGO
This logo is for my correspondence with persona among other professional woodworkers, who have come to know me as "The Wood Prof." (They gave me this nickname because I also teach university woodworking classes.)
In addition to using this logo online (my blog, Instagram, and YouTube accounts), I will incorporate it into my business cards and in magazine articles I write.
In addition to looking "vintage," I want this logo to feel:
- Playful (i.e. Humorous)
1. All designs should include both my signature hat (a fedora) and glasses. My audience is used to seeing me in these items both in person and on YouTube.
2. All designs should include one or more of the following tools:
- hand plane
*I have attached photographs of these three tools to help you designers quickly render artwork for the one(s) you chose to incorporate into my logo.
3. I'm leaving it up to each designer to chose whether to incorporate some rendering of my face, OR to create a less literal rendering of me by combining some of the other design elements listed above.
