How ToriMonty started their logo design journey

Company name

A Kinky Hair Monologue

Overview

My name is Tori and I’m the creator of a Kinky Hair Monolgoue (http://myhairmonologue.blogspot.com). About a year ago, I decided to stop chemically straightening my hair and wear it in its natural kinky state. Kinky hair is similar to curly hair but it’s tightly coiled. I started my blog to document my journey and connect with other women who were in the process of transitioning or had already successfully completed their journey. My blog captures the joy, pain and politics of natural hair while celebrating its beauty.

I’m overhauling the site to give it a more professional look that will attract more readers and advertisers. This logo will set the tone for that identity. I want something that is flirty (double entendre on “kinky”) sophisticated, yet fun. It will appear on business card, the site (transitioning to WordPress) and other social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.).
Site Name: A Kinky Hair Monologue
Tagline: Life on the Curly Side

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

My primary audience is African American women from 18-44. They are passionate about wearing their hair in its natural, curly/kinky state (i.e. Afro, locs, braids, etc.). I guesstimate that half of them are in the process of transitioning to the “curly side” and that the rest are actively wearing their hair in its natural state. In either case, they are hungry for information about hair care and maintenance, product reviews and styling tutorials. It’s a very supportive community of women that are united in their love for natural hair and learning how to care for it. This site – and many others like it – is a source of inspiration, community, knowledge and entertainment.

Requirements

Please do …
- Explore one option that use a dramatic strand of kinky hair for the letter ‘i’ in the word kinky
- Use vibrant colors
- Keep the design simple so it’s easy to read (sorry it’s so long)
- I’d appreciate your input on the file output. My immediate goals are to be able to use the logo on business cards, the site, Twitter and a WordPress header. So here are my thoughts:

o Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
o Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)

Please don’t …
- Explore Afrocentric themes, symbols or patterns.
- Use any stock images or clip art in the logo
