Around 5 weeks ago I made a blog post offering max. 250 SBD to have a logo designed for me. I wanted it to be a real business deal on the blockchain.
I chose @twistychips to make my logo.
Today he sent me the final design.
It is more than I ever could have expected.
Celebrating my new Logo with a nice glass of red wine, it's Friday after all.
I spoke to @twistychip on Steemchat and he asked me several things before he could even start with the logo.
He wanted to know what I would use the logo for, what I wanted it to portray and to send him logo's I like and don't like so he has an idea of where I wanted to go with it.
I send him this text:
To tell you a little about myself. Before the age of 27, I was a very closed person. Liked dark clothes and being by myself most of the time. I spend a lot of time playing video games (world of warcraft) and was perfectly happy with that. My world was small.
At some point I realized my life was not going anywhere so I decided to do something about it. First I stopped smoking then started to gain weight and exercising. I went out more. I spend more time running my IT business. It became way more successful because of that effort. I got into crypto in 2013. I'm more outspoken and 200% more confident than I used to be. Managed to find a girlfriend too :) Her name is Bianca.
I also like colors now. I now always wear colorful socks (happy socks) and more and more colorful T-shirts. I have a hard time listening to negativity too. I try to avoid it if I can or deal with asap. I also show emotion way more than I used to. I like to be surrounded by people that have a positive outlook on life.
At the age of 33 I feel better than I ever felt before. My goal is to become financially free and from there I want to help others.
I found Steemit in July of 2016. Started to blog on there. Had a great time. Never stopped blogging. Recently I started to vlog. Was a bit scared at first but I like to try new things. I hated new things in the past. Now I feel very comfortable doing it.
I would like the logo to be a reflection of my transformation.
On Steemit I blog about crypto, life in general and grilling and chilling. I recently bought a green egg (grill) and having a blast with it. But this is the now, I like to keep discovering new things so I'll no doubt mix it up in the future.
I would like to use the logo on a t-shirt, coffee cup, apron and blog posts and maybe other things I have not thought of. I would like it to be versatile. Scalable for different purposes would be cool.
I send you some logo's that I like and that I don't like.
You already told me this process might take longer than I would think. I hope this is a good start.
And I send him these logos as requested: Logo's I like and don't like.
I then send him the promised 25% down payment
These are the first drafts he sent me. I chose the pixelated for him to work on. I liked it the best plus the idea behind it was brilliant. At this point, I thought we were almost done and I would receive a JPG in the mail with the Logo. I was so wrong.
The pixelated one is because what you are doing is mostly all digital, and the colors on the black background is a symbol of your life transformation, you are coloring in the colors to your old dark past.
He went to work on the pixelated logo. He sent me this as a follow-up. I loved the 3D version and asked him to build upon it. It was around here that I started to realize this might take a little longer.
He did. As you can see all the letters are 8 blocks compared to the draft above here. I loved it. I thought we were done. But @twistychips was not.
He had one more idea up his sleeve and sent me this. Asking me if I was open to this idea. I had to sleep on it. The letter shape stands for the different directions in my life. In the morning I knew this was the direction we had to go. He went to work.
I received this not much later. I loved it but I had some doubts. It felt right, but not completely. Like he was on to something but something was missing. He said: 'let me play around with it a bit more'.
FINAL LOGO. The next day he sent me this. It was perfect! From concept to this in 5 weeks. I am blown away.
This was my first business deal on the Steem Blockchain and it was a perfect experience. I have paid @twistychips for his services straight away. I am in awe of his professionalism as a designer and businessman. I would recommend him to anyone.
And that's it. My next project is to get this LOGO on T-shirts and others product. I'm hoping to find someone on the blockchain to do this for me. As I believe businesses on the blockchain is one of the things that will make it grow.
