Also, there is a new logo. All the fonts are the same, but I simplified the frame. I think this looks better.

Here are a few prototypes for my newest logo. As a former graphic designer, I am a bit obsessed with this part. I want to give the logo a classic, timeless feeling. I tend to gravitate towards vintage inspired looks, and this style goes well with the name Lion and Rose, so I think this will be it! I plan to hand write the individual soap bar names to save on cost, plus, I think it adds to the hand crafted look of the soap.
When I started making this soap, I was trying to make a peak in the center to resemble a mountain. The idea was to make a snowy mountain since the scent is called Fresh Snow. When my husband Joe saw the bars, he said they looked like clouds, which I thought was awesome, since they smell more like fresh air than fresh snow. Yeah for happy accidents!
With this technique, I use a line of cocoa powder to distinguish between the 2 layers. I learned about this technique from one of my favorite soap artists, Emily, from Shieh Design Studio. Please check out her sight...it is amazing!: http://soapandrestless.blogspot.com/
I am considering naming this one Ozone since it is described as an ozone type scent.
