I have decided upon a new logo for myself and my site. Logo number 2! After much contemplation (about two minutes of staring off into space), I decided to use the second logo, with the split profile of me and the Jumping Monkey character. I chose this because it is very similar to my first logo, but still using my favorite mascot that I first created when starting the site.
And yes, for those of you whose noticed, it does resemble the Rhett and Link logo
I did not do this purposely, in fact, at first I meant to have the front of our faces split, but I later realized that not only would this be twice as difficult as doing the sides, but it wold stray from the original Jumping Monkey logo. I did, however, use the collar at the bottom of their necks as with Rhett and Link.
As for the reason I changed the logo, well, there are several.
- The old logo said “Jumo”, which I try not to use anymore since I changed my site address.
- The old on was a little stale.
- I had been wanting a cooler “monkey” logo for a while
- And oddly, my main reason was that I had just gotten a 30 day trial for Adobe Illustrator and wanted to try it out. The other new logo I made was the first thing I have ever made with Illustrator, I had never used a vector based program before, so I had to watch a tutorial. Next thing I knew I was tracing my first logo with the pen tool and BANG! Insta-logo!
