I can't believe it! WE HAVE A LOGOOOOOO!
You KNOW I've been booty dancing like a fool over here. I don't know if I'm more excited about HAVING a logo, or more excited to have finally decided on a logo. We had so many awesome choices, but this one just kept whispering those sweet little nothings in my ear.
The journey getting to this point has been a long, and sad/crazy ride...but from the moment we started working with our designer, Keith, well...it just has been the best experience in the entire world to put it lightly. He has been nothing but a complete blessing to us, and I just couldn't be more thankful.
I guess this makes us super legit now...and I'm totallyyyy cool with that!
WE HAVE A LOGOOOOOO! :)
As Chris Brown (not a fan of the dude) would say.... LEGOOO! But imagine me saying,
I'm so proud of it and I absolutely LOVE IT. Drew and I couldn't be happier. I realize it's not "So Shay" but it's so "US" and we feel like this logo will target the market we want.
In all honesty, this logo was our third runner up for awhile. I loved this logo when I first saw it, but it wasn't "the one", or so I thought. But, after time, the little turd grew on me, and it grew on me good. Welcome to the family little one! :)
It's complex, prominent, official, thoughtfully crafted, hand-drawn, and the perfect kind of busy. We needed it to be masculine since Drew was a part of the company now, and still find a way to give it a touch of femininity. Also, when we were making our decision, we asked ourselves, "CAN WE SEE THIS ON BUSINESS CARDS? CAN WE SEE THIS ON FOLDERS? KOOZIES? ETC. ETC." And we could.
I think the deciding factor, too, was that it was our designer, Keith Davis Young's, favorite logo, too. We completely trust his judgement and after-all he is pretty much just OUT of the world amazing, and UBER freaking talented. He put our logos on a website a couple of weeks ago called Dribbble. The batch of logos were in 2nd place on the NUMBER ONE featured page. He called me the day he put them up and was so excited! The response was HUGE! The guy who created the Shiner (beer) logos even commented on how much he loved them. I'm not professional designer (obviously), buttt I think that's pretty stinking cool! :)
Our decision was SO hard...and all of the contenders were strong and I loved each of them so much. So, we have decided to take our second place contender for our logo and are going to use it as our signature.
If you are ever in the market for an awesome designer? Call up Keith. He's brilliant, unique, kind, excited, more than talented, and just the most rad guy to work with. I couldn't recommend a better person, honestly.

Well...dare I ask what do you think? I KNOW most of you are probably surprised, but we love it and I guess that is all that matters. It's different, it's not what you see out there right now (atleast we don't think so) and it's just perfect for us. WHOO-HOO! WE ARE SO PUMPED! :)
HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS!!!!! :)
