Waffle Wednesday: Change Is Good

ww-logo-thIt was February 2014, just over a year ago, that an accident with an FTP server crashed the blog, and led to my insomnia riddled brain spending 10 hours overnight to totally rebuild Robyn Rants and Raves from the ground up. I love how it looks. It is bright, clean, and very usable. However, it is not wise to leave things the same for too long, and that leads me to today. It is time for a change. Change is good.

I’m not making big changes though. It’s still the same me, doing the same waffling, the same ranting and raving. What has changed though, is the logo. It is time for a change, time to freshen things up.

Logo 2012 – 2015

The old logo has served me well. It is an integral part of the site, and still forms a huge part of the new logo. There are a number of little changes that all serve to add up to one big change. Robyn has become more the centre of attention, changed into a bright pink script, written in lipstick. Rants & Raves has received a subtle tweaking of sizes & colours. A strapline “Beauty, Life & Random Thoughts” has been added, just to make sure people know what I am talking about around here. Finally the intricate scrollwork around the corners just serves to tie everything together.

Surprisingly, it didn’t take me too long to put it together. Experimenting with ideas, piecing everything together and honing it all took around 3 hours, which is fairly good going, including redoing profile and cover images for Facebook and Twitter.

I may tweak little bits of the site, just to tie in everything, but I am happy with my efforts. I enjoyed working on a project like this, as I used to do logo, advert & brochure design, and it was good to do a little bit of fun work for a little while.

But, what do you think of the new logo? Do you agree that change is good, or do you think you should just find what works and stick with it?
