I've been taking part in the thought provoking Branding Masterclass run by Flourishstudios.co.uk
This is my mood board for what will be GabriellaBuckingham.com
After a week or so of doing the course it dawned on me that I need to demarcate what I do - the opposite of what I did two years ago when I tried to show all my skills under one site! Which is probably why I have been fighting this mentally for so long.
Rather than forcing things into Moobaacluck that confuse and cloud what Moobaacluck is (to most people it represents a children's line - which is fine) I want to do more while building on Moobaacluck's strengths.
So I've been playing about with a holding page for this new site while I design a stationery range. As you do.
I don't want to get too hung up on how the holding page looks as the background to the actual site will be white... I will be interested to know what Fiona at Flourish and fellow class mates think of these options.
The middle one is probably too romantic and summery. . . but I enjoyed sketching the honeysuckle and learning how to tint a sketch and underlay behind the type - what a relief! ( ref. to the surfacepattern ecourse that I am taking concurrently)
My favourite has to be the top one. The bottom one reminds me of James Bond... the credits at the beginning ... or holiday destinations. Can't be right.
What do you think?
