I made my first logo ever. I run a feature account on Instagram where participants can tag their photos with #hashtagfloosie with the chances of being featured daily by one of the moderators. The photos that the moderators and I feature are posted on the Instagram page with a small red banner that says #hashtagfloosie. Since I launched the page a year and a half ago, Hashtagfloosie has grown into a community of over 1,000 photographers with over 100,000 photos tagged with #hashtagfloosie. I felt that Hashtagfloosie needed a logo for the page.
Even though my son is a graphic artist I wanted to see if I could make one on my own. I have almost zero Photoshop skills, so I used Keynote for Mac to create the image. I created three red rectangles in the form of the letter “H” to match the color that was already identified with Hashtagfloosie. I layered the text on top and a white Markerfelt Wide font to read “#hashtagfloosie” so that participants can easily read, remember, and tag their photos with. The finished and first official logo is stamped on the photo above.
Ok, I won’t be quitting my day job anytime soon, but at least Hashtagfloosie finally gets its first logo. Come check it out at http://instagram.com/hashtagfloosie
