Drawn in the iPad app, ‘Paper’ I’ve tried to create a logo that captures as much about me and my blog as possible, without being cluttered. Simple really is the best design.
Just my blog name. Teacher is just done in printing while my name is done in my own handwriting to show that my profession is part of a larger whole but what I bring to it is unique to me and the many experiences that have made me who I am.
My blog name is “Teacher Monika” because when I taught in China for my first teaching practicum I was always called this or “Laoshi Monika” which is the same thing in Mandarin. Plus if I ever decide to have a change of last name I wouldn’t have to worry about any of this!
Neutral but youthful. Adds pop to be more obviously noticed on Twitter, WordPress, Pinterest and whatever other social media it might be attached to.
Drawn as a cycle to refer to the cycle of inquiry and questioning. One question will lead to the next and so on and so forth. Also I incorporate my environmentalist heart by making it out of a vine like structure to hint at reduce, reuse, recycle and the cycles of life we must protect.
The red and yellow berries along the vine symbolize the juicy parts or inquiry and the gold we find along the way through our rich experiences in the learning process.
- Simple, obvious, reflective and effective.
