QOTD: Don’t be afraid to take a big step…

Fav icon

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

I decided today, after being inspired by all the awesome favorite icons on this post, to create a favorite icon for Meranda Writes.

Because I don’t have a real logo, I knew I’d need an image or just text. I opted to create a sort of pseudo-logo using the first letter of both words. It also happens (not unintentionally) to be the first letters of my first and last name.

As anyone who ever saw the pages I proofed after I had signed off on them can tell you, when I sign my initials it just looks like a squiggly line. The MW run into each other. I created a similar effect on my icon by using similar colors and just offsetting where the M and W met.

Maybe not as cool as some of the icons on that post, but I think it works for this site.
