Branding Myself


#1
Since I am going into freelance business and setting up a website and everything, I thought it would be appropriate to have a name and a logo.
I have decided on the name "Creativewhale", but now I am needing a logo for it.
Do you guys have any suggestions for a logo? Something super creative preferably.
Also, if you have any critiques about the name, anything is appreciated.

Thanks

I was actually going to post exactly the same as Harry until I read his post!

Maybe look into the idea of the whales spray?

ha yeah, my avatar does kinda look like a whale.
i am thinking of a whale for my logo, but not just a simple ordinary whale.
i want the whale to stick out, be different from the rest.
like, instead of just having a whale, maybe do something to the whale that makes it different.
i was thinking like adding wings to it or something..
any ideas about that?

Sounds like youve got some good ideas.

I think the idea of adding wings to the whale would only work if there was a prominent reason for them. What would the stand for in your brand?

Ide get drawing if I were you, even if you just post up a scan of some pencil drawings rather than vector images it would be a start. At the moment it sounds like your my client and your looking for me to design your logo...

I have already done a lot of drawings, and the wings seemed to be a good idea.
I haven't really thought of a good reason for them yet, except to be different.
But, now that I think about it, the reason I chose a whale is because they are large.
And the name pretty much means a huge amount of creativity.
So, maybe the wings could stand for carrying me far?
Or soaring high, or something like that..
I did create just a whale drawing in photoshop, I will post that.
Well, I don't really want anyone else to create my logo for me..
But I really do need some advice and critiques.

rather than adding wings why not have a burst of creativity spurting from the whales air hole?

That would have more meaning, big and bursting with ideas / big ideas

This popped into my head too - swirls of various colours coming from the air hole or something along those lines. Or maybe the whale spurting paint (painting, creativity?) and have a few paint splatters on its body? Or even have it spurting paint at a wall/canvas in the background, having a painted stylised whale, as if the whale 'painted' it?

@tbwcf & pangolin:
That is a really good idea.. I like that a lot.
I will draw some of those ideas out, then post them on here.
Maybe make a few on photoshop.

@Onartis:
Yeah, I just created an account yesterday, and I saw it when trying to load the page.
Here is my account if you want to add me: Dalton Downing (creativewhale) on Twitter

Thanks for the great ideas so far.
