How I let my Twitter followers choose the logo for the next project

This week I finished writing a free Vue.js ebook which I'll launch next week.

I set out to create a little landing page for it, and I decided to create a logo. I'm no designer, so this was my first attempt, combining a Twemoji with the Vue logo.

I thought it looked good.

Until recently this was enough to go on. But recently I discovered Twitter Polls and enjoyed using them.

So I asked my 1800ish Twitter followers if they liked it. They said NO.

So I tried another iteration.

They liked it better, but I decided to throw some more ideas to the wall.

3 hit a cord:

I iterated, made the logo smaller and the words take less space, and I think this hit the right balance:

Now I realize the initial logo I came up with looks pretty ugly in comparison.

It looks pretty nice in the landing page I built, which lives on Netlify at vuehandbook.com

In the end, I really liked the process, it was fun seeing what people voted and also very motivational towards getting to a good result that was appreciated.

Again, I'm no designer but I think this is good enough for me at this point.

The inverted colors also make for a nice GIF 😁

Off to work on the final touches to the ebook.

I hope this was a nice story to read πŸ™‚
