I am working on a logo for myself and the website. I have it partially finished, but have had a bit of writers block. Or graphic artist block? I was never very good with art. I decided to take a tack and work on a header instead. I was thinking about incorporating this into my logo, but dropped the idea. It is a way to create a right angle using only a straight edge and a compass.
- Start with a straight line and pick any point above the line
- Use a compass to draw a circle that goes through the line, exact diameter isn’t important
- Draw a line from one intersection point of the line/circle through the center of the circle
- Come down from that second line hitting the outside of the circle to the other intersection with the original line
BAM! Very few tools and you have a perfect right triangle.
My work on the logo continues. I want to take my time and get it right. That, and I am abysmal at graphics software, so it is going to take me a while to even put what little I can imagine to digital paper. Stay creative!
