I asked how her convention in St Louis was going. She said she needed a Style Guide, for a logo I created for the SOFT organization.
I have my students make a style guide. It takes all semester. In my mind I was like - Really, while I'm watching 3 of your boy, you're going to ask me to do this? I know she didn't know all she was asking. I think she thought I just needed a page saying the font and colors. BUT that's not all a style guide is. It's also used to show how not to use a logo. It also gets into the spacing around a logo. That can't be done with measurements. A logo can be used for something small - like a business card, and something big - like a billboard. You have to show the spacing with a letter or graphic in the logo.
I started working on it this week. Two weeks after she asked me.
I went in thinking I could do it on a page, but that expended to a mini book. Usually a Style Guide is a mini book.
If I've seemed absent from blogging it's because of helping Isaak with school, taking Isaak to basketball practices, and working on things like this SOFT Style Guide.
