Shop Talk

Over the last few weeks, I have been working with a French graphic design student to develop a logo and banner for my Etsy and Folksy shops.  My love of plain text just didn't work on either shopfront and Victoria had done banners for a couple of other Etsy shops that I liked.  

Starting the process, I didn't really know what I wanted.  Because of the name, slugs seem like a natural step. However, the name "Slugs on the Refrigerator" was picked without any real thought to how it would be used in the future. And if I am honest, I don't know if I would chose it again.

And so we moved from:  

to to the inclusion of yarn:

 

and finally to a font and designs that I liked 

 

in a whole range of colours for the seasons. You can see the spring banner in my etsy shop now!!

As much as I love the new banners, I think the logo is my favouite:

 

black logo

 

To celebrate all things new and spring-like and my 300th (!!!!!) etsy sale, I am having a "All 3 of my children's birthdays are within 8 days of each other at the end of March" Sale.  Type in "MARCHMADNESS" at the checkout and get 10% off at Kat Goldin Designs.  I will be closing the custom order side of the shop sometime next week, so if you are looking for hats for Spring babies, order now!!! It will reopen in April, after the craziness of Birthday Week. 

 

(thank you so much, Victoria)
