More bookshop news!
So. I’ve been poring over the names I’ve given to all of the imaginary bookshops that I’ve opened my head since I was little, trying to decide which one is right for our real-life store and I keep coming back to one.
Growing up I spent more time in the land of books than I did in real life. I lived in those neverlands that you can only visit in stories. The places you grew up in that never actually existed. The ones you got lost in and the ones you found yourself in. Those strange countries that real and important, in spite of the fact that they exist nowhere at all but inside you. And that’s where I got the name:
And it works on a variety of levels because whenever I spend hours at a bookshop and Victor is like, “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL DAY?” I always say, “Nowhere” and now I’ll actually be telling the truth. Sort of.
We’ve seen a few locations that we like (more on that later) but now I need help on deciding what the logo should be. Because you have helped to create this store in giving me such amazing ideas for the perfect store it seems only fitting that you should help decide the logo. I’ve narrowed it down to these five designs but I can’t decide which one is best so I’m asking for your help:
Can you go in and rate each one? Just click on the images to see each logo and then give each a rating from 1-5 stars (5 being best) and then click “submit”. There’s a space that asks for your name and email but it’s not necessary so just leave that blank. (The logos are still workable so you can leave comments on the design if you think it needs a change or should be a different color, etc.)
Thank you for being here. And for being Nowhere.
