I have been thinking for some time that I should have a proper logo designed by someone who knows what they are doing! I thought that my shop, Facebook page and Instagram accounts should all have the same look about them so that when people come across them or are searching for them they would realise that they are all the same studio.
Meet Periwinkle Mouse, I think that he is a bit cheeky and looks like he is about to run off with that needle and thread!
Why a cheeky little boy mouse and not a pretty little girl mouse?
I have had a little crochet mouse on a shelf in my studio for a long time. He is definitely a cheeky boy and comes along to events as part of my stall set-up. He has his own rocking chair next to his goldfish bowl, yes you read that right, Periwinkle has a goldfish bowl and His cactus to which he is very attached. I love him and he always makes me smile, so I couldn’t have chosen anything else.
Thank you Michelle at Heartfelt Illustrations for bringing my cheeky mouse to life. I had never done anything like this before and was worried that I didn’t really know what I wanted. Michelle took me through the process step by step, explaining everything and tweaking things until we got the right image. Between us and within the space of a day, my Periwinkle Mouse logo was created.
I then thought that if I have a logo my main sites should also have a banner that ties them all to the same studio and to me. I chatted to Michelle and she quickly created the lovely banners you can see on my Periwinkle Embroidery Studio Facebook page and also on my Periwinkle Studio Instagram Page.
I am so pleased with what she has created and feel that my little business now has a bigger presence on social media as a result.
I have also used my new logo to produce some cute pin badges that will be available at Open Studios and you never know could appear in a package if you choose to buy some of my work from my shop.
So now it is a bit cooler, I am going back to my studio to finish off the goodies I will have for sale at Open Studio on the 14th and 15th of July. Go over to my Open Studio Event page here to find out all of the details and if you want to share so that all of your friends know, that would be great too.
For those of you who can’t attend the event, join the Periwinkle Facebook page here for an online event I will be running after the Open Studio event closes! Lots of goodies will be available, don’t miss out.
Enjoy the lovely weather, I hope to see you at Open Studios, or online at my Studio Page.
Su and Periwinkle Mouse
