When I moved to Denver, CO in 2015, I decided to rebrand myself.
My primary goal was to make something a bit more illustrative/graphic than the initials-style logo I had at the time (see above). Taking that into account, I wanted the “M” to be clear to represent my first name. Additionally, I wanted the other element to represent moving forward or progressing to a new chapter (the blue point). As a complete logo, the mark creates a mountain and the tip of a pencil (representing where I’ll be headed and creativity. The colors are from my previous branding, which was something I wanted to keep.
