Whilst not specifically written about Blog logos, the article – Trends in Logo Design – is a great resource for looking at some recent trends in graphic design which might be useful in considering the design of your blog.
My post Where are the Blog Designers? got a bit of interest yesterday and a number of Blog Designers let us know about themselves and gave examples of their work.
I thought I’d give them a little exposure here:
As previously mentioned Cre8d Design is a personal favorite of mine. She produces clean, fresh and stylish blogs and logos and was recommended by a number of commentators in the previous post.
Chad is a web designer who is willing to take on blog designing jobs.
Iggie Krug has been doing blog design and logos for a while now. I’ve seen a lot of Iggie’s work around in my blogroll – good stuff.
Dan is also happy to do blog design.
So there you have some blog designers – perhaps there are more out there than I thought.
Having read the comments there I have some theories as to why there are so few people specializing in blog design professionally.
- A lot of people feel they can do a reasonable job themselves.
- Most people know someone that knows someone who will do it for free (or very cheap).
- People are not willing to pay much for something that they can get for free and then ‘tinker’ with.
