Becoming the muse: this is not origins story
The story behind my blog title changes every time I tell it, truth be told I don’t even remember why I picked that title, but every day I have a different story for what Becoming The Muse means, in musing you I muse myself……
This post isn’t about any of the stories (mostly made up) about the meaning behind my blog title. This post is to tell you about how my blog found a logo, a logo for my blog, (can we call it a blogo? I mean people make up with names of things all the time) and possibly an identity…….
I was having a chat with my brother and he suddenly said to me “I think I was born to be graphic designer……”
He is just about to complete a degree which has absolutely nothing to do with Graphic designing
Well I know he dabbles with graphic applications (I do too, but mostly to resize pics for my blog and just for fun to make mind bending pics of myself)
I hadn’t considered how well he dabbled in graphics design until he said, “Your blog doesn’t have a logo, and you will be my first client……..”
I have never really thought about having a logo so trying to come up with a design seemed a daunting task, but then again it hit me, what do I do… I am a storyteller so I used what I could to conceptualize a design:
I create words, each letter is part of bigger picture, together a story is told, together with each story I share I Become The Muse, and these are my words telling Africa’s story….
I closed my eyes and suddenly I could visualise an open storybook; letter by letter each word I share; tells the story, my story, I am Becoming The Muse…….
What I imagined looked exactly quite like what my brother brought to life
The name behind my blog suddenly makes more sense, although each day the story of the meaning may change from now you can see how each letter defines me, and all the words buried within…., who knew a logo could do that?
If you need your graphics done (or know someone who does) and you need a dreamer to do it you might just want to get in touch with my brother……. (inquire within)
***If you can imagine it he will design it***
