The Project

I needed a logo for myself to launch my web design concept. I wanted something that represented me whilst being formed from my initials. I wanted something fairly friendly so tried messing around with various fonts to see what I could come up with. I accidentally created this:

An accidental concept saw an abstract JP as a face – the dot on the top of the J forming an eye.

The black of the ‘P’ looked a bit stark to me so I decided to tone it down a little and switch to a grey colour instead.

Slightly muted ‘P’ on the logo

I toyed with the idea of merging the words ‘James’ and ‘Design’ together and considered that an apostrophe could be a ‘wink’. I also wanted a sort of ‘amazed’ feel. In that JamesPask design was amazing… clearly it didn’t work:

I’ll be ‘Jam’d’ – err.. no!

Jam’d wasn’t going to work but JamesPask Website Design was a bit too much of a mouthful. Clearly I needed something in between that also didn’t just concentrate on Website design as I wanted to design logos and other graphics too.

Revised colour pallette with ‘design’ added

It seemed that JP Design would be a sensible choice. This worked nicely in greyscale and also black and white.
