I realized that I haven’t updated the logo for MorganLinton.com for some time. I think the last time I updated it was probably close to four years ago and in all honesty, I cringe when I see it. So it’s time for a refresh. Along with an updated logo I’m also going to update the background on my blog because that’s even more long overdue, but let’s start with the logo.
As many of you know, I like involving my readers in as many decision processes as I can when it comes to this blog. Simple reason – I write this blog for you, not me, so honestly your opinion is what matters most.
When I worked at Sonos I saw how much time and thought went into picking a logo from the design, colors, everything was picked for a specific reason. While I’m not going to get that deep, I thought I’d share a bit of what I’m going for here.
Color: Blue. I like blue because it stands for loyalty, strength, wisdom, and trust. These are all things that are incredibly important to me and are core to my blog.
Style: Fresh and modern. Yes, this can different things to different people. In general thought I’m not looking for something that looks retro, corporate, or overly complex.

Okay, with that in mind you can either decide, well Morgan that all sounds like a bunch of marketing fluff, who cares? Or maybe it makes sense to you and it will somehow help as your evaluating logos. Who knows, either way – let’s get to the good stuff, here are the three logos I’m thinking of at the moment.
LOGO CONCEPT #1
LOGO CONCEPT #2
LOGO CONCEPT #3
Okay, now it’s your turn. What logo do you like the most, or do you think they’re all ugly and I should go back to the drawing board? Either way, I want to hear from you – comment and let your voice be heard!
