Jen Rose, an old friend of mine, came to me offering a trade of service - Logo for a photoshoot. I quickly accepted her offer, and went to task at making her a new logo.
Her renditions of what she wanted was mandala-esqe, simple and clean. A shutter was also discussed, bringing the design elements of the camera into the logo.
After a few trades back and forth with different styles, we finally settled upon a thin circle mandala style. It fit with her style of photography, and she was very pleased with it.
