Blog Style Board


This exercise made me think back to some branding exercises we did at the agency where I used to work. If you could visualize your brand, what would it look like? Of course these were done with magazines and the client would clip out and paste on a board, but it's the same principal that I have used. What does Jilly Jack Design and more specifically this blog look like? So this is what I came up with out of materials I had on hand. It's bright, happy, clean colors, texture through materials used in the paper, ribbon and fabric used in the cards and folios. Most of all it is friendly and approachable. So that is what I'll be striving for. As far content goes, I hope to bring more of myself into the blog as well as fun info about our cards and graphic design in general.

I'd love to know how your style or brand board would look? Feel free to share!

Take care,
Jill

Yeah for pantone swatches! I love your color. But it's the Hello that really pulls me in. Genuine and vibrant.

P.S. On the drop down below for blogger, I always think it's nice when you can add your url. IN general I won't leave a comment on a Blogger blog if I can't. Firefox automatically populates for you while Google account takes an extra step of free time (if that makes no sense let me know).

Miss B, I'll check into that. Thanks for your comments!
