There’s Something About Mary…

There’s Something About Mary……that you didn’t know. She has a brand spanking new website and online portfolio! (Just an FYI in case that you don’t already know, my name is MARY). I originally launched it a few weeks ago to present to friends and family, and now I’d like to officially tell everyone about it.

It’s been so much fun (surprisingly!) to set it all up. Once I uploaded my theme to my chosen host, I breathed a sigh of relief, and got down to business. I’m already familiar with using WordPress (that’s what this blog is using), so it wasn’t too nerve wracking to set up my site. I chose to do this to present a more professional image of my work and myself. I really wanted a clean-line kind of look with neutral colors, so my design work would really “pop”.

The funniest thing about making this site, was coming up with some kind of logo for my name. I kept leaning towards one font. Playing with it, over and over….I ended up with this:

Logo in color-05Something looked SO familiar about it, then I opened one of my office desk drawers, and found this:

MARY

This is a cover of a vinyl note pad that I got as a gift when I was 8 years old. I really love the bright yellow and I love that font, very reminiscent of the fabulous 70’s. Isn’t it funny how things from our childhood affect our design decisions down the road in life? ANYWAY…that would be interesting to cover in another blog post! I know it’s not the same exact font, but I was chuckling when I opened that drawer and found it!
