Keen-eyed observers might have spotted I’ve changed my header a bit, and added this emblem to my comments:
For no particular reason I decided to attach a logo to the Desert Sun “brand”, which I intend to use for publishing my book and any other commercial activity I may do in future. To that end, I contacted an independent graphic designer who wanted between £3,500 and £6,000 to design me a logo. Nice money if you can get it but I wasn’t going to pay that, so instead I went here and found this guy, who is Turkish. I asked him to draw me a logo around the theme of “desert sun” and put the words beside it, and he came back with 4 suggestions. A few iterations later I settled on this:
The total cost was $150, and the whole process took about 3 days. I got high definition files plus other information associated with it, e.g. the font type. I modified it to create the White Sun of the Desert title that is now in my blog header.
I’m not entirely sure I need a logo, but it’s fun to have. I hope you like it.
