I’ve been a bit busy and I hope you like what I’ve been doing.
The About Abruzzo logo has had an overhaul.
It’s a simple design, and sometimes the simple approach is best.
Looking at it (top left – go on, take a peek) you see the A of Abruzzo made from a mountain and the sea. The dominant colour is green, representing the lush Abruzzo countryside. The background is white – well Abruzzo does get its fair share of snow! Add to that two words Forte and Gentile (strong and gentle or perhaps more appropriately strong and neighbourly) and I think I have a logo that truly represents the region and the purpose of my blog.
I’ve also been busy elsewhere. I’ve taken quite a number of photographs of various aspects of Abruzzo and although I regularly put a selection of them on display on this blog’s Photo Album I feel that some of them could be put to an alternative use.
I don’t know about you but I love to pick up a memento of places I visit and the most common type of memento I go for is a T-shirt.
But there are so many ugly T-shirts out there, and I’ve so many lovely photographs…I bet you know where I’m going with this.
So I’ve created five products to start with, four T-shirts and a key chain to be exact. The keychain (key ring) has the new logo – that’s straight forward enough.
The T-shirts have one of my photographs on the front that has been tweaked to make it look a little more interesting. On the back you’ve got the new logo and a reference to aboutabruzzo.com.
Perhaps not entirely haute couture but certainly the height of good taste!
Here’s one of them.
You can see all of them on my new The Shop page and there you can also find out how you can order from your local Zazzle store.
More products will follow over time and I’ve no doubt the look and feel of The Shop will change also – so drop back now and again to see what’s happening.
This is a new venture and I’m very excited by it.
Post a comment and let me know what you think.
