Logo CikkMiraDotCom




Logo CikkMiraDotCom | Assalamualaikum and Hi beloved readers. Today topic is about logo. As you know having a good logo is important when you want to attract new readers or customers to your blog or businesses. Other than that, logo works well in branding your businesses. An eye catching logo is significant as it help you in  introducing yourself and showing your personalities to future readers and customers. It can help you in making your blog and businesses stand out. It is like a first impression from people to us. Therefore I create my newest logo for CikkMiraDotCom.

What makes a good logo? 


Font

Choose a suitable font for your blog. The font should match the outlook of your blog. Do not use too many fonts. The pairing of the font should match one another so that your message through logo will be more clear. 

Color

Too much color can hurt the eye so it is advisable to use minimum 3 colors. Use a mood board in order to make sure the color use is suitable and blend in with one another. You can use any colors such as bright and bold, pastel and even cool colors depending on what kind of style or design that you want to create. 

Graphic design elements

Use graphic elements to complete your logo design. It can be background patterns, illustration, banners, shape, texture and others


My Logo


I choose a feminine design logo for my blog. I choose a floral design as it shows that my blog provide a feminine blog design services. Although i love bright colors but when it come to design i love a design that show the feminine side of me and yet looks professional. It may not involve too many colors as i believe in creating a good logo , it shouldn't have too many colors. Too many colors might over shadowing one another but having a minimize color for blog or logo can make it blend together and make them more stands out.  My logo and my header is different. I don't put my logo at my header but i put my logo at sidebar. When i redesign my blog, I had decide to use about 5 colors which is pink, green, black, silver and white. The main colors is pink, white and black. Same goes for my logo. The logo that I create should be feminine , clean and professional.



What's  yours? Blog editing is open . You can email me at mira94.aa@gmail.com.

    Redesign CIKKMIRADOTCOM | Assalamualaikum and hello readers . It's been a long time since i active blogging and it's also been a long time since my last edit or redesign for my blog . Today I redesign my blog again. Maybe something more feminine and reflect my age i guess. I hope that my new design for my blog is clean and easy for you to read my blog. I hope it is not crowded . Let's take a sneak peak shall we .


    Moodboard




    This is mood board CM . I had stumble on a blog that share tips and tricks in design . Most of them using mood board to determine their brand. They collect sources such as pictures and stuff and blend them in together to create one fantastic design. A brief explanation regarding mood board is that mood board is an arrangement of images, materials and pieces of text intended to convey a project of particular style or concept. You pick any inspiration design and combine altogether to create a project or design that you want . It really helpful.

    Design Concept

    My design concept is feminine and floral . I want a simple design but combine with feminine style . There is not much different from before i guess . But i do not own the template . I don't make this template . I buy and redesign the template. I still have the slider and the slide for the testimonial. I had read some articles from blog that said you have to change your blog to responsive design . So i do know what responsive design is but i dont really know how to make it . Maybe it takes time for me to learn how to make one. Besides, i dont take any major in designing or html editing . My major is accounting and i dont have much time to learn how to make a template. I just know how to redesign it .

    After




    Final words
