So, I was going through our photos, which incidentally, live on our hard drive and in some place called 'The Cloud.' I will not dazzle you with my knowledge of how these things work, because I am a little fuzzy on the details. Just know that like so many others out there, we take photos and they generally remain in digital form. We almost never print them out. But, I was looking for examples that will illustrate the design process for Brent's logo. Because if you didn't know him, it wouldn't make any sense.
It was hard, not simply in a technical way, to look over these pictures, and to see where we have been.
This first photo was taken on the last day of school in June of 2011 at our neighborhood bonfire, which is a tradition held dear in this household. In order to properly kick off summer, the kids go down to the park and burn their old homework assignments while the parents grill off hotdogs and such, a wonderful way to catch up with other families. My kids save their school papers all year in anticipation of this day. Their "burn pile" is pretty big. There is joy in burning that stuff...victory and satisfaction, all of which is quite evident in Brent's pose. Lauren isn't unhappy either.
