I was asked by a hippie girl I knew to draw up a logo and Facebook cover photo for her “Wellness” side-hustle. She was tossing elements out to me that she thought would be cool to incorporate. Old maps, trees, landscapes, etc., which lead to this exchange:
Client: Okay… screw the header image of a landscape. I’ll cross that road if I need it later, but let’s focus on the logo. Everything is less-is-more these days, but that’s so old now I’m not biting into it entirely for my future. Art tastes changes. I think baroque muchness is better 🙂
Client: You’re super good at texture, so let’s start there. Any chance you could make the tree, with a compass key behind work? And surrounded by something symbolic of sun/moon as a round border?
Me: What’s a compass key?
Client: I’m using made-up language.
After a few more conversations like this, I noped out hard.
