Well, it's that time again; after going into my usual semi-hibernation over Christmas & New Year, I now feel all invigorated, full of something approaching enthusiasm and ready to give my photography business a bit of TLC. I'm ashamed to admit I lost a bit of focus last year, and coasted along without putting much effort into my work (sounds like my old school reports!). This year, after giving myself a much needed kick up the arse, I am attempting to rectify last year's lackadaisical attitude, starting with a new logo (as well as photo books, prints, canvases and other cool stuff).
I've muddled through using my own poor attempts at logo designs for ages now, despite wanting a professionally designed logo since I started. I know a lot of people fail to see the value of using a proper, trained graphic designer and would rather knock up something themselves, but I'm not one of them. I admire good design as much as I admire good photography. And I know my limitations. So why have I waited so long? Basically, I wanted to wait for a designer I had faith in, and I ended up waiting a while!
I've been working with the super-talented Jess at Noxx Creative (www.noxxcreative.co.uk) since last year, and after seeing the quality of her work I knew that if anyone could come up with a logo design I liked it'd be her. She also has great taste in music, which may not be a prerequisite, but is certainly a bonus! The whole process of getting Jess to design my logo has been completely stress-free, and I'm super pleased with the result. I can't recommend her highly enough for any design work, whether it be a logo, marketing materials or even a magazine layout.

So without further ado, here's my new logo...
And business cards...
