Woo-Hoo! Sew a Fine Seam has a new look!
A logo, new background for the blog, new biz cards – it’s so exciting! I am in love with my logo!
I wanted something that portrayed a bit more than sewing. Since I DO a bit more than sewing 😀
So I handed the job over to an expert – someone who knows what they are doing when it comes to design and putting things together.
Brent Welborn of Welborn Creative created this oh-so-fun logo for me. He’s not only great at graphic design, he’s a great guy! And he’s my neighbor. He created a logo for my photographer friend Belle Hess and I loved what he created for her. It was so perfect for her and I decided then that when I got ready to hire a designer he would be the one!
Brent has a wonderful wife and family too. They have 7 adorable kids, a cute little ‘urban farm’ just a couple blocks from where we live, and a lovable dog named Asa. Our kids love to play with their kids and we count ourselves very blessed to have this family in our lives.
Brent’s wife has a business too – called A Welborn Baby. She’s a doula and she’s great at her job – I just know it! If I were still having babies I’d be hiring her for sure. You can find her facebook page here and give her a like!
I sent Brent a hodge-podge of scattered details about what I thought I might want. He created a few preliminary logo ideas. I loved the scissors, camera and paintbrush. Sewing, Photography, and Painting are my three main passions.
I loved the logo but thought it needed something to make it pop – color or some quirk or – something. Brent came through with this awesome idea of how to add color! How cool is that?! I loved it! Not only does it add color in a really fun way, but I think it also highlights the fact that I paint as well as sew.
I really don’t want new blog readers to immediately think this blog is all about sewing because it most certainly isn’t! Neither did I want to change the name. I like my name. I’ve had this blog for over six years and when I named it ‘Sew a Fine Seam’ I did so because sewing is always going to be something I do. I also added the Bible verse at the top to go with it – ‘Whatever you do, do with all your heart, as to the Lord.’ To paraphrase – ‘Do a FINE job of everything you do!’
I’ve added a few other changes to the blog too. And I still have a few more I’d like to make. Brent will have to help with some of them, some I can do myself. Some I think I can do myself but may end up throwing in the towel and begging Brent to help me!
If you need a graphic designer, call Brent. He’s good at what he does, he comes through quickly, and his prices are good too!
So tell me what you think – do you like the new design?
