update: okay. contest extended. prize, increased. the question is how would my 3-5 star choices look on a header with my name (ieishah)?
what comes to mind when you hear fat juicy oyster? lots of people think 'sex'. luxury and richness definitely spring to mind. it carries a feeling of playfulness.
but also there's the line from shakespeare's merry wives of windsor, about the world being your oyster. that's the thread that links everything i do in life, really. but especially my blog. i travel and have intense intercultural experiences in every aspect--work, love, art and music, nature, sport, and politics. i write about it to inspire others to live richly, too.
the logo must have an oyster in it. maybe some pearls. maybe the words 'live rich' should be there somewhere. most of all, i need to feel a sense of playfulness when i look at it.
yeah, i'm not a fan of capital letters, obviously. and i'm not a cutesy cute girly girl. when i wear pink, i pair it with black. i like roses with thorns. this logo should be more on the edgy side.
having said this, i don't want any designers to feel limited. so let's throw some sh...errr... stuff up against the wall and see what sticks.
