Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve written any blog posts here. My apologies.
However, I have found a cool tool to help you create a quick logo if you need one. It isn’t the greatest tool in the world, but it’s enough for a quick and dirty logo.
The site is called “Logo Ease” and it offers a free logo design maker.
You basically take some pre-defined images from their clip art collection (which isn’t all that great, but you get some basics) and add some text and color — and VOILA… A logo is born!
In just a few clicks, you end up with something that may not be perfect, but is close enough to start with.
So check it out. It may jump start your logo creation and add at least some unique graphic elements to your site!
If you, like me, are bereft of art skills, (Pictionary is about as far as I go these days…) I have to recommend a subscription-based service that has served me well over the last couple of years when I needed art for my t-shirt or bumper sticker designs, or for inside a book.
Clipart.com is a spinoff of Jupiter Images, which is one of the largest image banks available online.
If you haven’t taken some time to check them out, I highly recommend them, especially for holiday clipart with Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah coming up. (As an aside, I can hardly believe the holidays are coming.) In addition to the standard clipart, there’s tons of useful content for books as well. I found myriad pictures I could use in conjunction with the fantasy roleplaying game I wrote.
So check them out! I will be using them for blog article art from now on since I’ve seen the jump in readers when there are pictures present. 🙂
Have a great day!
