1. taking into account that you aren’t a logo designer must say your new logotype is really nice. Actually it was first thing I noticed when I came back to your new site, fits very well in your new design. Well done.

    • Thanks Albert. I’m glad you like it and appreciate the compliment. I’m still not sure it’s anything special in a logo, but I do think it’s better than the last one and does fit well with the site.

      Thanks again.

  2. Good article. What I really like about you is how passionate you are about being simple. About doing more with less. I am Apple user, and I can tell ya that simplicity is always the best design philosophy. I avoid distraction to the audience. And I really like about what you share in your blog. I am not profesional artist, but I do really love icon/logo design. Currently perfecting my skill in Photoshop and Illustrator.

    • Thanks Aizat. I tried to keep things simple. Hopefully I managed to do that. There’s more I’d like to include in the design and I’ll have to see if I can figure how I can do that and keep things from getting too complex.

    • Thanks Josh. I tried. I still wonder what someone who really does logos well would have come up with, but I did my best and I think it turned out ok. I’m glad it’s getting across some of what I wanted it to.

  3. I too like your new logo; the 3×3 grid design is genius in its simplicity. I would, however, add more variation between the words “vanseo” and “design.” In the same way you picked distinct but complementary colors for each word, I’d go one step further and pick a slightly different font or typeset for one of the words. It looks too same-y otherwise.

    • Thanks Alex. Yeah I hear you about more variation between vanseo and design. My original thought was to use 2 different fonts, but I never could find a combination I liked.

      I played around with a few things, but in the end left it as just the color. I’ll have to give it another try and see what I can come up with.
