It has been a while since I have blogged about my travels, but I wanted to tell you about my new venture. I am starting a separate venture to share my travels across Africa. It has become my favourite place to travel and there is still so much to see. If you want to follow my travels you can follow my new Instagram account here.
As well as the Instagram, I will be starting another blog too. I know there are many travel blogs out there, but to be noticed I think it is very important to have your own unique branding. I found this great website to create my own logo! It is really easy to use! Considering I am retired (we won’t go into ages here), computers and technology are not my strong point. I certainly wouldn’t even know where to start, on designing a logo. I wouldn’t even have the skills to sketch a design or idea.
LogoJoy is very user friendly, type in the name of the business, click on 5 logo layouts I liked. Then select a colour palette and a few icons, then the magic happens. LogoJoy did all the hard work and created various logos using my information. It was quite a fun process, and I finally decided on this for my logo.
Inspiration for the logo is the tree you commonly see across the Maasai Mara. I snapped this photo on our last trip to Kenya and it is one of my favourites. Once you have decided on a logo you can change the fonts, colours, and sizes until you are happy with the final look.
I loved I could purchase a Social Media Kit add on. It includes 40+ perfectly sized versions of your logo for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Etsy, Pinterest, favicon, watermark, wallpaper, and more. So for any one else totally computer illiterate like myself, you now have a set of logos already created to the perfect size for all your social media accounts.
They also produce Brand Guide lines for your logo, which is great if you are a business start up. It is so important to be consistent with your branding. To have a look at my branding guidelines you can click on this button below:
Considering they not only include a logo, which was so easy to design, the social media kit, and brand guidelines, which include details of the colours and fonts used. This is remarkably good value for money. It is going to be a tiny fraction of the cost a professional designer would charge you. Plus you will feel more proud knowing you created it yourself.
I hope you will follow my travels across Africa, and if you have any questions about the process I went through on LogoJoy to create my new logo, then leave a comment below.
