So I’ve decided that after utilizing a number of different visual identities for my various online endeavors - all of which had involved re-purposing old advertising art - it was time to create something unique.
This is very much a work in progress, but it’s a start. I think it will stand out as a small icon and as a larger image as well. This is the full version, with the site name, but I plan on using other versions with and without the wordmark around the circle.
