Photography Business Institute

She has a new logo that is consistent with her photography – simple yet playful with a bit of unexpected snap. I love the mustard accent color she chose with the gray. This is a fun, cool and timeless look. Jill also pulled together graphic elements and colors that also have some pop like her photography.

We all take inspiration from others but remember your logo is the face of your business. Create it carefully! Great job Jill!!!
