So as much as Martha and I are alike….we are totally different too. We know it‘s an oxymoron but hey it’s just how it works.
We went through so many ideas…..sooooo many! Some days after going back and forth all day we didn’t speak to each other the next day. LOL
We were racking our brains to make something that we were both comfortable of being responsible to of representing Martha and I and our Line Dance Biz.
We tried pulling from our line dancing background- we couldn’t have our logo looking like anyone else’s. And we didn’t want it to look generic, like anyone could pull images and put it together.
We tried pulling from our background of our life growing up….milk cans, wind mill, barns, fence rows, etc…..
We tried using literal meaning of ”at the Bit” using horse bits, horse shoes, etc.
We tried going with shape imagery…Circles, square framing, and other shapes.
We also thought about ”branding” logos too.
We also experimented with floral arrangements and such…
NOTHING THAT STOOD OUT TO US- that said “this is It”
EVEN THE FONTS>>>>we took a while to agree on something that we liked. ( I wish I could make Martha’s printing a FONT )
THEN - I went to hand drawing!!! Putting my graphic design from HS to thee test!
I drew up so many ideas….
BUT WE FINALLY DID IT!!
The fence row and barbwire is hand drawn by me, the boots are a paid for graphic, and the fonts….we found two to agree on.
And Honestly it has served us very well. It‘s suits us to a T, we think.
