When Greg Moore and I first started the itty-bitty design firm Block, Street and Building in 2003, naturally we wasted no time working up a logo. I found these the other day while rummaging through old computer files and thought I’d pass them along. It is interesting to see them now. The long green version, some of you will already know, is what we stuck with and I’m glad we did.
That was Greg’s great work. In fact, Greg’s design skills are what shaped the unique look of BSB until we closed the doors in 2006. Since then, I’ve been haphazardly rearranging, undoing and altogether hacking away at what we worked so hard to create over those three years. If you’ve been reading the BSB blog over the last several years, you’ve seen a great many changes in the layout and the over all look, most of them excused as experiments, but honestly, if you must know, I just get fidgety and tend to pick at things, including blogs.
Anyway, as you may have noticed, Block, Street & Building really doesn’t even have a logo anymore, since it really isn’t a thing anymore. The blog is still around, but life has changed and my schedule has changed and I no longer contribute to it like I used to. I know someday I’ll get hare up my butt (that’s the saying right?) to revamp the BSB logo, just because I want to. I’ll probably show it to you here first!
For now, welcome to my new blog, Doodle Britches! I plan on using this blog as a way to keep up on my design chatter with like-minded folks. And be sure that things will change around here every so often. Like I was just saying, I tend to tinker with my blogs probably a little more than I aught to. So bare with me. This one has a little way to go before it’s “ready”. Coming soon: Where the name Doodle Britches came from, life as a designer in a reaaaally small town, First Security Bank’s logo – WTF is it?, new Arkansas design firms, and more.
