I have blogged many times about the importance of branding, and I believe personal branding is important in an individual’s career. In my career, I am building my brand through this blog, Facebook and graphic design. One suggestion I can make for the creation of your personal brand is to develop a personal logo.
First research other personal branding in a google search. What are they using? What do you like about the designs you see? Put the bits and pieces together too form something that you think describes you.
Second use that creative instinct! If you have access to photoshop, this is the easiest program to use. It takes a bit of time to figure out the program, but it is a great skill to develop. (Especially if you are going into marketing like me!) I created this logo that includes my name with the program photoshop.
You can also use this online photo editing website. It is the best one that I have found thus far. I created the logo below with this website.
Recently, I have also been working on creating a brand for The Artistic Brunette. These are the different versions that I have created:
This is the banner I created for The Artistic Brunette.
This is still a work in-progress. I do like the initial design, but I still believe I need to make it a bit more snazzy! This is the logo I created for my blog. It is suppose to represent what my website is with a flair of music!
This is a short tid-bit on my journey in personal branding.
What have you done to building your personal brand?
