Some Old Logo Work

Just like I did with some of my old web design work, time for some logo designs from long ago.

Anyone who is, or has been involved in design will understand how painful it is to go back and look at your old work. If you don’t work in a creative field and want to know why, check out this fantastic clip from Ira Glass on the creative process.

Like fashion, you look back at your old designs and immediately wonder, what was I thinking?!”.
