One of my favorite type of project is logo design. I’ve done over 100 logos since I began freelance work in 2000 — you can see 80 of them collected here. It gives me a bit of special pride when I see one of my logos “in the real world.” I have presented a few examples in this post.
Everyone has heard of “writer’s block”, the inability for a professional writer to get the right words down on the page. Designers experience a similar thing, that I call “Creative Block”. Sometimes it’s just something that happens on a particular day — I can’t get going on anything, and nothing I design pleases me. Other times, it’s a specific project that I’m stuck on and I end up frustrated and tossing out design after design.
