When I first started this project I was unsure what I wanted to make my logo look like but when I thought about my theme for the blog, about me, I decided that something to do with my family would be suitable. I chose to make a tree with my last name on it, representing my family tree. The sketch on the left was my original idea for the logo and the picture on the right is my changed version of the sketch on Adobe Illustrator. I created the leaves on the tree using the ellipse tool and intersecting the trees in a tree like manner. I erased the lines between the different ellipses by using the pathfinder tool to unite the image to one image. I created the tree trunks and branches using the rectangle tool, copy and pasting the rectangles and adjusting them using the rotatory tool to where I wanted them to be in order to represent branches. I again used the pathfinder and unite tools to make the trunk and branches one image. I chose colors for both images that were close to what I wanted and then used the gradient tool to give a lighting effect to the image. I put lighter colors of the shades I wanted on the right side of the gradient bar and darker colors of the shades I wanted on the left. I then used the slides to adjust the blend between the two colors and make it look like there was a light coming from the top right corner of the image. I tried to find a good balance between the colors to unite the images to one logo. I then added my last name, Davis, using the type tool and changing the font to AR darling and the font to 72. I then added a shadow effect to the name to blend it into the picture in a more visually appealing way. I then centered the name to the tree and trunk.
