The New Logo Edition


About two weeks ago, I came to the conclusion that it was time for "Up the Poudre" to get its logo. I was tired of looking at the header picture of me fishing an unnamed creek in Montana, casting to a fictitious fish that was nothing more than my active imagination at work. So with a few basic ideas, the process began.

Understanding that I neither had the talent or the patience to design a suitable logo, I sought out some help. That in mind, I contacted one of my more "Unaccomplished" friends Kirk. But if you know Kirk, you know that he is anything but unaccomplished. He is good at this stuff, he is really good.

Kirk asked a few questions about what I envisioned for the logo, and if there was anything specific that I wanted to make sure to incorporate into the design. My only requirement was quite simple, "Just make sure that we can get one of the bulldogs in it, preferably Rex, I like him better..."

So after a few design options (all of which were great), we narrowed it down, made a few tweaks, and the new logo was born. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do. I think the new logo is exactly what "Up the Poudre" was missing.

If you are thinking about creating a logo or have any other graphic design needs for your blog, business, or other, please check Kirk out. Not only is he incredibly talented, he's great to work with. I look forward to working with him as "Up the Poudre" continues to do its thing.

  2. Your blog is your own journal.

    If you like the logo, then it's really all that matters.

    But it's OK if I like it too.

  10. I'll keep Kirk in mind. Someday, I hope anyway, I'll be needing some work. Definitely a one-of-a-kind logo that identifies your page.
