If you were represented as a logo, what would you look like? Design a logo using your initials or parts of your name.
A logo doesn’t sell, it identifies. A logo derives its meaning from the quality of the thing it symbolizes, not the other way around. A logo is less important than the product it signifies; what it means is more important than what it looks like. — Paul Rand
