This is the mood board for my personal logo. I wanted to have a western-style logo because that is my personal style. So I gathered some images that I thought would help spark ideas for the logo.
This is a page of ideation that I had for different logos that could be a possibility. I was focused on having a hat in the logo but felt that it wasn't quite enough so I played around with some other ideas.
To the left is the progression of the hat itself. I started with a general shape and then tried to clean up the lines and then added more flare to the lines in their weight and shape. To the right is the final logo that I came up with. The beard idea came from me always having one since high school.
