My New Logo




This is what I came up with for my new logo... I will do a post on logo design and show the process if there is anyone interested. Let me know.... I don't want to do it if no one cares....Anyway it is the fastest I've ever done one and a relief to have it in time for Monday.... I did not even use one of the new fonts I downloaded the other day... This one is "Papyrus" and have had it for some time and just couldn't find the right use for it..

I love this type of rose and it is synonymous with Art Nouveau.. and it actually has a name.... the "MacIntosh" rose.. It reminds me of CQ spider roses or a folded ribbon rose.. You see it a lot in Art Nouveau works and especially in stained glass work.

It is named after a Scottish Art Nouveau artist, Margaret MacDonald MacIntosh, who collaborated with her architect/artist husband Rennie MacIntosh... Unfortunately she suffered from ill health and died quite young...



This is a portion of one of the stenciled murals for which she is famous.

I like your new logo :).

I would be interested in a post about logo design; I'd also be interested to hear how you created the banner for your blog as I really need to make one for my blog.

But if I'm the only person making those requests, don't worry about it!!

Great Logo!

I'm interested in logo design. I was actually thinking that it would be a nice way to label all of my quilts.

Hi Gerry

I would be so interested in knowing how you made both your logo AND your banner.

It's a GREAT logo! Love the font and I was thrilled to hear the history of the Mackintosh rose. I've always liked them too since it's probably the only variety i can draw. Good luck on Monday!!

P.S. I need to design a logo myself so would love to hear your expertise.

Logo tutorial? Yes, please. Thanks for being so generous with your gift of creativity!

Wow, I didn't know this about MacIntosh's wife. Thanks for that!

I've always loved the Papyrus font. I've used it on some of my handouts and things (back when I was able to teach). Never have gone so far as to design a formal logo but I'm looking forward to reading your suggestions.

I am so glad you attributed this to Macintoshes wife - she is often in his shadow and much of her work is attributed wrongly to him - she did wonderful work and I have had the pleasure of seeing much of it in the flesh
