After many ideas and design evolutions... my bf still hasn't found what he's looking for. :P I think it's tricky for him because he's creative & artsy, too, but isn't sure how to explain to me exactly what he wants. Maybe one day we'll be on the same page!

Here are the next 4 variations of his logo: 

v. 2 - These are totally different from the first version; they're simple and versatile with a slightly vintage feel. Not sure about the fonts, but there are a couple here I really like (mostly the black oval with red brush stroke under auto upholstery & the bottom left solid blue).

My hairstylist is opening a new salon, so I decided to design her a few logo ideas she could have (if she wanted- no obligation, I just enjoy making them).

I'm not quite sure how it happened, but the EIC here at work was tasked on managing the company garden this year. I don't really eat vegetables (that's why they make gummy vitamins, right?), so I don't have a ton of experience in gardening. The past couple of years I did have my own tiny garden at home (think less than 4'x4' off the corner of my patio) and I grew cucumbers and tomatoes, mostly just to see if I could. And I could. My whole INTJ personality thought process is all "Success. Move on to new task. No need to garden anymore." ... But, a job is a job, and I also really like to...

This month's appreciation poster has a fun Cinco de Mayo theme! People finally seem to be noticing the efforts the EIC is making... so hopefully they'll come around and start actually appreciating each other. Baby steps, though, right?
