That's right! It's been on my to do list for a while now but until recently I had more important things to do.
My original logo featured an old majestic ship. I know what you're thinking..."what does that have to do with cat/bat/bunny people and spun cotton?" When I first started Vintage by Crystal, I was making all sorts of vintage inspired goods, including shell art. I must admit I didn't put tons of thought into it, but vintage shell art and a ship both went with a nautical theme...I thought it was brilliant! After that things shifted and I pretty much never do shell art any more, hence my desperate need for a refreshed look.
Here's the original/previous/old logo:
And here's the new one:
This little cat girl actually didn't take long to come up with. I love making cat girls and it seems that every one else likes them too (yay!), so it only makes sense that she would be my official mascot. I wanted it to be a basically round logo as well because instead of signing my pieces (which on most of them is very hard to do), I put little round stickers on the bottom, back or under the skirt of each little guy or girl. My new stickers are going to be even smaller than the originals too, which will make them a little more discreet. The two designs at the top of this post are the before and after stickers.
I'd love to know what you think! :)
