I was asked by a friend to design a logo for her upcoming app about make-ups. This will be the first time I was asked for a commissioned work which has for me really excited. For months now, I discovered my love for graphic designs when I started using Canva for my blog designs. As you see, all graphic designs here in my blog are from the free logo making site. After I navigated the know-hows of Canva, I decided to watch video tutorials on how to use photo shop. I know it’s quite overwhelming to use but I really have this knack on making designs.
When I told my friend about this news hobby, she was delighted and for the idea of commissioning my work for her new app.
So here I am, trying to figure things out on how I will brand her make-up app.
Basically, my friend Sophie will be launching her app by the end of the year. She has hired a writer to make copy writing work for her, while she stays completely hands on the project. She has also hired an agent who shall handle the app store optimization as well as the marketing of the app.
Sophie is a businesswoman who loves clothes and women brands. Before, she has put up an retail shop and now, she is into online shop. She sells clothes she bought in different parts of the world like HongKong, Europe, Bangkok, and in Marrakech.
For her make-up app, she plans to feature beauty bloggers who shall give video tutorials on putting up make-ups on their face. She has also talked with make-up artists friends whom I also know. She plans to meet all of them and have video shoot next month. She has also talked with different make-up brands for possible partnerships and sponsorships for the app. I hope she’ll partner with Maybelline New York and Mac also heard Rihanna and Kylie Jenner will be launching their new make-up line. I hope she’ll also get to talk to the brands’ marketing heads.
All these thought for me agitated and at the same time worried. I really hope I can pull this off.
I am truly excited about my friend. I plan to make a logo that shall symbolize her love for make-up. It can be a mirror, a brush or an eye lash curler. For days now, I have been doodling on my notebook for possible logo that suits best for her.
By next week I shall present three case studies for her to choose from.
I hope I can finish the logo by next week and I can’t wait to share the end product with all of you. I also hope you could support my friend through downloading the app once it has been launched by the end of the tear.
