A Brand New Design

For a while my old logo was frustrating me. It wasn’t really up to date with us as a family. The child that represented P3 was wearing a white babygro and had been drawn before we even found out she was princess. I’d tried, and failed, to draw a new one but nothing quite lived up to the old one. It was my brand identity but I wasn’t pleased with it.

I spoke with Hubby after showing him about three potential designs and he laughed at me. He asked why I hadn’t found someone to draw it for me. All the time I’d spent faffing with a new design when I could have just been searching online for a person to create me the perfect header. He said it was worth spending money on because my blog was doing so well.

So I took to Facebook to ask fellow bloggers who they suggested for this very important task. A lot of people had suggested Ellie Illustrates and after browsing her website for about 10 seconds I knew she was the one for my blog. All her designs, although very different, were exactly what I’d pictured in my head whenever I’d tried to create one myself.

So I got in touch, put my deposit on, was given a date and waited. You have no idea how excited the process has made me. I’d been counting down the days. About two weeks ago I was asked to give a brief overview of what I wanted out of my header. I wanted a family portrait style with it being pink but not too pink. That was pretty much all I wanted if I’m honest but I think I added extra bits and the lovely lady, Helen, was probably fed up with me.

I was sent a proof, I asked for some amendments and then yesterday, everything went live. I am so incredibly thrilled and as you can see from the above header and my background, it’s all beautiful. It perfectly portrays us. The bearded daddy, the shorter mummy, my three girls. The little aeroplane represents us travelling and although we haven’t yet been on a plane, my aspiration is to and I wanted my blog header to grow with us as a family for as long as possible seeing as I paid money for it this time.

What do you think? Do you love my new brand identity? I really hope you do.
