Branding Myself

    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.

    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.

    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.
