I'm So Excited!

Let's see, where do I begin...

Why am I so excited, you may be asking?

Well..there ARE several wonderful things going on in my life right now that have me smiling, but we're here to talk about Planet Creative Studios, right?

Planet Creative Studios (TM) has been in the incubator of my mind and heart for many years. It almost feels like far too long, but every idea has its time and I believe 2013 is the year!

The first exciting development is the completion of the Planet Creative Studios logo!  This image has been floating in my head for almost as long as Planet Creative Studios has been a thought-seed!  I attempted, at least two or three times, to get this image out of my head and "onto paper." 

Recently, a very dear friend introduced me to a talented graphic designer who was able to help me do just that! 

The logo features some fun and creative elements that reflect my style and vision. The first thing you will notice is the color of the planet.  Purple!  It's a mysterious, royal, and creative color and my absolute favorite color.

Take a look a the leather-like texture, the retracting panels at the top of the planet and the very subtle gear at the center of the panels.  These details pay homage to my quirky interest in a turn-of-the-century industrial vintage style called Steampunk.

The planet represents the world of creativity that awaits you when you walk through the doors at Planet Creative Studios and the wonderful escape from the norm that one experiences as he or she embarks on a creative adventure. 

The pièce de résistance is the group of artsy tools emerging from the top of the planet! I get excited thinking about all the wonderful masterpieces that will be created using these and many other tools! These tools represent the many ways that Creative Explorers, like you, can engage and express your creativity with Planet Creative Studios, especially once the full vision of Planet Creative comes to fruition.

So...without further ado, allow me to introduce the new Planet Creative Studios logo.

The second, equally exciting, development is a creative event called the Planet Creative Studios Experience.  What's so exciting is that this event is designed to offer you a sampling of the fun environment and a variety of creative experiences that will be available to you when Planet Creative Studios opens its doors in the near future.  The Planet Creative Studios Experience, originally scheduled for March 23, has been rescheduled for May 18. Stay tuned for additional details!

We look forward to seeing you at the first of many Planet Creative Studios Experiences!
