My name is Ryan and this logo will represent my personal brand.
I am launching a personal homepage at ryonlife.com. The purpose is two-fold: First and foremost, I love writing and have a number of web-related, fitness and general topics I'd like to cover in a blog. Secondly, I want to build an presence that can serve as an online portfolio, resume and networking tool.
RyOnLife is a bit of a play on words because it will be my platform to offer commentary and opinions on life and the world.
My audience is 75% web, technology and startup, but but I'll also do some writing on fitness and other subject areas of broad general appeal.
I want something that is bold and stands out. It should have an informal or casual feel to it, and definitely not corporate.
I have one concept in mind that I'd love to see brought to life. Feel free to take a crack at this one, but PLEASE don't let it stop you from going outside the box and coming up with something completely different.
The logo I have in mind would stack the three words on top of each other like this:
Use different font weights/sizes/spacing in order to make the three words equal in width, making the logo take a square or rectangular shape.
The "O" in the word "ON" should be a globe or Earth that has an illustrated feel to it. For this portion of the logo, I have no problem with a stock image being incorporated. To give an idea of the style I like, here is an example:
It would be cool to use this or a similar globe for the "O" and have all other letters in the logo match the colors/sketching of the continents.
That's my concept, and although I'd love to see it come to life, I really am open to allowing you to exercise creativity and trying other concepts.
Based on the submissions so far, most of the looks have a professional and/or Web 2.0 feel to them. This is my personal logo, so I want something very casual/fun/illustrative. Something that looks sketched would be cool and probably convey the right feel.
