INDIE AUTHOR LOGO DESIGN Pitch Contest
Hello there! I am happy to announce that I am able to give out 3 free logo designs on the 18th of every month- on twitter! It’s held from 8am to 8pm (CST) This “contest,” is held under the #indieauthorlogopitch hashtag. Using the hashtag you can pitch me your #indiebooks and I will get a feel for your work…to do your design (plus everyone else can see it, hopefully leading to sales for you ;)) Please follow @arjungwriter for a chance to grab your free logo! Logos can be upwards of a couple thousand dollars. This is my way to give back to the fabulous and welcoming #writingcommunity!
Here are some of my latest designs:
Logo design is important for authors and writers because it starts to create the branding that you need to stand out from the crowd.
Common themes for writing logos according to adazing.com –
• an open book
• a closed book
• a pen
• a pencil
• a fountain pen
• a feather pen
• a typewriter
• calligraphy writing
These are only a few of the many options available to be used as logos. Other than your traditional trade-based icons like books, pens and symbols reflecting your name or a character trait, the most likely place to find inspiration is to dig deeper into your specific genre. Below are just a few examples of symbols you can use for different genres:
• mystery books: a magnifying glass, a sherlock hat, etc.
• Science fiction: a rocket, moon, stars, spaceship, etc.
• Romance: a rose, heart, butterfly, etc.
• Self-help: a compass, footprints, etc.
Please contact me @arjungwriter for logo design outside of the free Twitter pitch contest. Logos are $75 in two installments. $35 at the beginning of the design process and $40 at the end through Venmo. I can chat with you on Twitter DM throughout the design process or through email and get your logo done in real time for you. It’s a fast process. Happy writing guys!
