The minds behind
Actually it's just me
My name is Henrik, I'm a logo designer from Denmark who spent most of my adult life being fascinated by many types of design, and over the years found my true passion in logo design. Before I settled on logo design, I've been through a lot of different types of creative fields; electronic music, 3D modeling, drawing, painting, level design for video games, web design, and probably even more things I've since then forgotten.
The reason I eventually ended up designing logos, is because I like how such a small thing can convey so much. A logo can look so simple and like anyone could have designed it, but the effort that goes into it, and the level of meaning and depth a logo can possess, not only fascinates me when studying a good logo, but the challenge of developing it is thrilling, and reaching the goal is so fulfilling.
About the website
The reason i created it
The creation of this website came about almost by coincidence, and it all started with the development of my random company name generator. When practicing logo design, most people will tell you to come up with a fake company to design for. This is indeed good advice, but coming up with a lot of company names can be quite tricky. I've seen many people suggest using a random word generator to create two words and combine, and use that as a fake company name, but I didn't like this approach and started playing around with the idea of creating a dedicated generator for fake company names. When the generator was finished I thought it was silly if no one else would be able to benefit from my work, so I put it online. I then went on to create a random design brief generator as well, and things just took off from there.
This project has already taken a lot of time and hard work, and I've done everything myself. I designed the website, developed the WordPress theme it is running on, thought out and programmed the generators, written every design brief and so on. Hopefully, a lot of people will find the website helpful, and if you would like to support my efforts, and the ongoing development of the website and its content, you can donate a small fee directly to me, just look for the donate button in the sidebar or the website footer. Any amount will be highly appreciated, and if you can't afford to donate anything, don't worry about it.
If you experience any issues or have an idea of something you think I should implement on the website, don't hesitate to get in touch with me.
The main goal
Why do I bother?
I'm spending my time building and growing this website because I am passionate about logo design. When I started out in logo design I would personally have loved a website like this, and that is the main reason I decided to develop it.
The goal of Logoworkout is to make it a comprehensive website containing everything you need to learn the craft of designing logos, practice what you learn and keep improving.
Hopefully, a lot of people will get a lot of benefit from my work on this website, and hopefully, enough people will be using it, so I have a reason to keep developing and improving upon it.
Help me out
Support the project
As I already mentioned, I've done everything myself so far, and I am not earning anything from running this website, so if you want to support this project it will be greatly appreciated. You can find a donate button in the sidebar on the pages that has a sidebar, and in the footer as well. The button will take you to a PayPal donation page where you can donate any amount you are comfortable with. Every amount is welcome and no amount is too small, so if you can only afford to donate a few bucks, I will still be very grateful. If you don't have anything to donate, that is fine too, I don't want anyone to feel obligated to donate if they can't afford it, or want to.
If you want to support the project, but have no money to spare, there are plenty of other ways you can help out, and probably ways I haven't even thought of. If you have a great idea for additions to the website, let me know. If you are a master at English and is currently cringing because of my poorly constructed sentences, I would love you to re-write my text. Are you are SEO mastermind? You can help me rank this website higher, so more people will find it and benefit from it. Any help is welcome, just get in touch.
Thanks for visiting, reading and using my website!
