A new look!

I have recently updated my logo, and have just finished changing all my avatars over. It seems that graphic designers like to tinker with their logos, so I'll give you a bit of background as to why I have changed it.

Firstly, although my business name was originally rose among thorns, it seemed every time I signed up to something online, that was already taken. When I first opened my felt shop, I discovered it was too long for their 12 character limit, so racked my brains trying to think of a way of shortening it. Eventually I came up with roseinthorns, and my felt shop was born. So everytime I signed up for something and roseamongthorns wasn't available, I used roseinthorns instead. Then one day someone suggested I change the name to Rose in Thorns. I mulled over this for quite some time, and when I moved to full-time self-employment, thought it would be a good time to make the change.

Secondly, I had got a few comments that my logo looked more like a tulip than a rose. I was quite convinced it looked more like a rose, but eventually felt it might be best to have a logo that didn't resemble a tulip to anyone. I am quite pleased with how it turned out, and even though I really liked the old one beforehand, I like the new one much better now.

If you are in the market for a new logo, or perhaps another graphic design project, do get in touch, and we can discuss your requirements. I am planning on making a website to go with my new logo, which will have some examples of what I can do for you. In the meantime, enquiries are welcome.


  1. loving the new logo - simple and affective

  2. Love the elegance of your logo. I did my own graphic design for my logo and it isn't quick or easy. Thanks for adding Frugal Kiwi to your blog roll.
