What do you think of my Logo?

Here it is, the logo that will accompany me through ups and downs, along my bumpy and difficult journey ahead.

I made it myself. Took a whole night to edit that picture on the left.

What do you think of it? Too weird?

And I suppose today is as good as any day to announce that I've been creating another blog to act as my OFFICIAL ONLINE SHOP.

Welcome, to Celosia Handcrafts.

Melisa, congratulations on the new online shop! So excited!

And your logo is way too serious for a fun and creative products like you make, I think:D


Cashmere said...

Congrats on your new shop!
I hope it'll be a success.. Some of your works are really nice. :)

Don't mind me asking but I think your logo is the outline of that red knit on your current banner right? Hmm.. It looks like a brain to me.. You should prolly add in the metal sticks and some yarn.. :D

Just a suggestion.. Sorry if you're offended.. didn't mean to.

But nice effort.. :)

Thank you Vantiani!!!

Let's hope I will update this more often than the Etsy shop I've been neglecting. Thing is, I made this shop also as a testing ground before I list them in Etsy. Because I'm the kind who likes to edit again and again and again until I'm satisfied, while on Etsy, once I clicked 'FINISH', that's it, I can't edit it anymore.

Hmm, too serious? Well, I'm not a graphic designer, so that's the best I can come up with I suppose. :D

And maybe it does reflect me a bit, because in fact, I'm a more practical type than fun person.
Most of the things I make are very basic stuff actually.

Thank you Cashmere!!!

I do really hope it will be a success. I made this shop also partly to bypass the Etsy fees. lol!

And you're right! It is an outline, just not of the picture on my banner. It is the outline of this picture.

Don't worry, I'm not offended at all. Hmmm well, the Celosia flower does look like a brain actually. And I didn't want the logo to represent any one type of craft. So...

Cashmere said...

Well I'm glad you're not offended..
If you need any help, I'll be glad to assist you. Not a great designer though... I can prolly give you some ideas that may/may not help.. :)

Melisa Sriwulandari said...

Thank you for your offer to help!
As it is, I'm quite curious to know which "some of my works are really nice".
Just to give me some idea of which items to sell.
Ideas of what to make are welcome too! I'm kind of in a stuck mode right now.

Hi Melisa,
1. I answered your banner question over at my blog's message box.
2. About your logo - what does the left graphic represent? I can't make it out.
Important that the logo graphic must instantly send a message.
Perhaps the graphic is a good choice that you have made but mix it up with different widths of lines so that it will be able to project what it is.
Also,if you have the means try not to make your logo one dimensional - flat. Too many logos are flat looking and lacks the appeal.
If you could...try to make "C" start from within the graphic so that the logo will look seamless rather than the typical two-in-one window logo.

You did not answer my questions at my Blog's Message box.

So, I went ahead and created two Banners for your Blog.

Please review them at:

Starting from tomorrow morning, I will be most of the time "away" from my computer. I leave by road for KL for the Chinese New Year. So, there will be delays in between reading any replies from you via email.

You don't have to neccessarily display your works as they can be shown in your listings. What you want people to know is what you do on the first look. You may put in a collage even.. It's all up to you and what you think will look nice and appeal to your audience.. :)
