A few years ago, I started dabbling in photography. It's now a full-blown obsession. I needed a better place to share my photos than Facebook, so I created a simple blog. This has become my favorite place to play with various website-related ideas, such as the best way to make private galleries where my friends could download full-size images they wanted to keep. Building the site to be responsive, it has also been great being able to pull up the website on my phone to show someone a new photo while out and about.
Since this site is my personal blog, I wanted everything to be authentic and casual. The logo was created from my real handwriting. Starting with a ballpoint pen and blank index cards and after a dozen or so iterations, the winner got scanned and cleaned up in Illustrator.
