A New Logo for ClickNathan, and the Beauty of the Web
I’ve been blogging for over a decade. Sometimes, particularly back in the day, it was silliness…poetry or my thoughts on some product or place. For the past few years, I’ve been writing this Web Design Blog, sharing useful code snippets for WordPress, Woocommerce, etc. I do it for free, and based on the traffic to my site and the comments on many of those posts, a lot of people find it useful.
That’s a beautiful thing about the web–we all work together, a little bit at a time, to make freely available a plethora of useful “things”. From web developers helping one another with free code to Facebook & Google to Wikipedia, the amount of absolutely free stuff out there is amazing.
I received a phone call a few weeks back from a guy named Kyle. He was working on a Gravity Forms project and needed a little help. It was the kind of help that I typically charge for, particularly as he was working on a paid client project. But he asked if I could just point him in the right direction. What he needed done was easy enough for me, and so I did it–for free.
Kyle in return offered a free logo design, and I was fairly happy with it on the very first one he sent over. Thus, a new logo for ClickNathan.com was born from a happenstance meetup of two web workers happy to do a little bartering.
