Hi guys! :)

I’ve received a lot of feedback on my new “freshface” logo, thank you very much for that. Many of you were also asking how I’ve done it so here is a quick and ugly process in steps. I’ve always loved those kind of branding processes you found on peoples blogs (unfortunately I don’t have one) so I though I could share with what I got left in my backup PSDs here :)

I am not an graphic artist or logo designer, so for me it was more of a “thinking process”, how to do it technically, fast and with good looking end result which will be later used mainly for my 80×80px TF avatar.

The most time I’ve spent with thinking and cutting the “pixel” parts. Otherwise almost every step was already thought out from the beginning of the project. At least I prefer the way “think more, design less”.

Oh and I don’t have enough skills with illustrator etc so it’s a little messy and slow in Photoshop, but it’s enough for me and I like my way of doing things, so please bare with me ;)

Here are the steps:

I had noticed your nice avatar before, but didn’t saw the face in it. Now it’s obvious. Great work :)

That avatar is simply awesome! It must have been a pain to do every pixelated shape manually but it was well worth it :)

Wow, I also never noticed the face, but now you’ve told us, I’m sure everytime I look at your avatar I’ll see the face before everything else!

Thanks for sharing! :)
