What’s In A Logo?

Posted on October 16, 2014 I Written By

My name is John and I'm a working dad with 4 beautiful children. I'm a full time blogger and entrepreneur. These are my musings. I hope you enjoy.

If you know me, you know that I have no design taste. Literally, I care so little about design. I have to be forced to try and make something beautiful. I’m so focused on form and function that I don’t pay nearly enough attention to design. I guess that’s why I use the same theme and template for pretty much all of my blogs. I’ve found something that works and stick with it. In fact, that theme is really a theme for my life. Once I’ve found something that works, I don’t see any reason to change. You can be sure that will be a theme of future blog posts.

With that said, I understand that there is value in a cool, catchy design. Plus, I like that people instantly recognize my blog when they see it. As I mentioned in my previous post, I asked my talented Crash Wife (who has a knack for making things look nice even if she doesn’t want to admit it) to create a logo for Crash Dad.

It turns out she’s a reader of Crash Dad and felt motivated to create Crash Dad’s cool new logo:

We might still make a few changes to the colors, but I thought she did a perfect job capturing the essence of Crash Dad. The picture on the left is particularly perfect for Crash Dad. It’s a really great example of what life is like for me as a father. Plus, I love that she included the picture of my daughter kissing me. There’s just something undeniably amazing about a love a father has for a daughter.

What do you think of the logo? Do you like it? Do you hate it? Would you change anything? Remember to be kind since my Crash Wife made it.
