Have you ever wanted to create a personal logo? The first option you considered may have been to create some artsy version of your initials, unless you have a name that just begs for something else (like Block, or House or Valentine).
A google image search of my initials provided many examples of using MW to create a logo, including these:
Model Works logo
Monster Warrior logo
Meghan Weir logo
Well, I came across an article today about this very subject in Before & After Magazine, Design a Logo of Letters. The link should take you to the PDF file but, if it doesn't, just go to this link for Before & After Magazine and download from there. I think it's worth bookmarking, because you might want to go back and look at the article for ideas whenever you do get around to creating a personal logo.
I always thought the right leg of the M (for lack of a better term) could flow naturally into the left leg of the W in my initials... or maybe they could be on top of each other, with the W almost like a reflection of the M. Well, I learned that what I want to do is create a ligature, such as GE, ADT, Lowes, or Applebees. ('Learn something new every day!) It turns out that Monster Warrior and Meghan Weir both have versions of my first idea, and Model Works has another interpretation of my mirror image idea.
The article suggests (and shares examples of) shared strokes or almost identical strokes, lower case to upper case, horizontal or mid level crossbars, and many other creative ideas. I think you'll find it a short, easy, interesting and inspiring read. If you already have a logo of letters, please post it in the comments. Maybe you could tell us how you created it and how it works for you. If you don't, I'll try to find one using your initials when I acknowledge your comment. This should be a lot of fun for everybody!
