Some design stuff

Here are some stuff I designed (Click on the images for a larger view):

01/ A badge for Carver's blog at Carver's Photographic Journey
This is a badge for Carver's blog. I used her photos because it's for her blog after all and these are some of my favorites photos. I might have enhanced the photo in version 1. My favorite is Version 3 because of the ducks. (Fonts used: Version1 & 2: Salamander Script; Version 3 & 4: Shintia Script Regular)

02/ Expressions by Mail for Ro at In the Know With Ro
This is a logo for a service Ro is doing. I just went with the mail stamp symbol and worked with that. I believe the purple color is Ro favorite color so I used that. Version 3 & 4 are meant to be used with any background (photos or color background) but I really do like the purple for the background. (Fonts used: Adobe Jenson Pro, Adobe Jenson Pro Semibold Italic & Helvetica Bold for capital letters)

03/ A Reader's Quirks for Roberta at Offbeat YA
This is for a graphic for a post series about reading Roberta have going on in her blog. The lady with the curls is a request that I was fully willing to do because I like drawing faces and hair and I just work with that. The eyeglasses in two colors and the two expressions (in Version 1 and the Final) is to express opposite opinions or something like that. And the colors are Roberta's blog's colors. It is always nice not to have to make color decisions because I seems to used awfully large amount of colors. Can you spot the difference between Version 1 and the Final Version? (Fonts used: Version 1 & 3 & Final: American Typewriter; Version 2: Noteworthy Bold)

04/ A badge with an owl and soap for Uglemor - Mother Owl
Uglemor asks for owls and soap and that's what she got. Since there are many types of owls, I just did what I think an owl would look like. There are two version of each design - one with black outline and one without.  When you look compare, you can tell the ones without dark outline is soften which I often like but the ones with dark outlines stands out better in small sizes. The final is blue because Uglemor likes blue better and I'm with her on that as I always lean towards blue. These would look on soap packages if she ever want to use them as that and also as stickers.

    1. I'm used to giving choices or drafts because I don't know what they'll like.

      Thanks for visiting & have a lovely day.

  5. Lovely Lissa, of course I absolutely adore all your work, and I'm so blessed to know such a talented and giving artist! My hope is that we can meet one day, and I can offer you a cheeseburger and lemonade. Such a treat to see all the things you do behind the scenes for others. Hugs and thanks again! RO

    1. I actually wouldn't mind cheeseburger and lemonade although I do kind of prefer strawberry-flavor lemonade.

      Thank you for visiting & have a lovely day.

  6. Thank you again for my graphics! As I said, I plan on restarting my ARQ series next year - but in the meantime, I'll add your banner to my old posts (which didn't have any to begin with). And of course I'll give you credit!

    That owl is so lovely, and the one Uglemor chose is my favourite too. I'm with you with the outline thing, though I must admit I like it better in the enlarged version too.

    1. I'm looking foward to reading your series.

      For the owl one, it is easier to see with the outline and often these are used quite small.

      Thank you for visiting & have a lovely day.
