Step 1: Reasoning

Details: When creating this logo I wanted to make something using my initials "NM". I wanted it to be more than the two being smashed together (See link 1). After coming up with 20 thumbnails and a few revisions this was the one that stuck out to me. I aimed for a modern look and wanted the NM to be hidden. So someone wouldnt pick it up at first glance.

Step 2: Left Logo

White is the movement/ what defines what kind of letter is going to be made. you can see the center blue rhombus as a stopping point to go down to make a N or up to make a M. With the top right White rhombus I could make that blue to give it that decision feel.

Step 3: Right Logo

Someone suggested to make everything all white except the center rhombus to give it more that abstract feeling and told me I didnt have to show that direction with what I was trying to do with the left logo.

Step 4: Thank You

Thank you for stopping by and putting you input in. After I read through the comments im going to go into the logo I want to use and will add highlights/shadows.

I plan on creating some step by step tutorials on how to create your own logo and go over some basic concepts of design and what software to use.
