While applying for a marketing job last week, I decided to manifest an idea that I had been contemplating for some time. I wanted to create a personal brand that reflected my multi-dimensional professional life. My ideal design incorporated a basic image of a woman surrounded by her life's work and passions.
integrate symbols representing my various disciplines. Ideally, a viewer would recognize only the cameo design at first glance, and the disciplines would reveal themselves within the filigree of the frame, clearly visible only upon closer inspection.
Once the frame had been drawn, I cut-and-pasted simple silhouette symbols from public domain clip art. Clockwise from top, the symbols are: a stack of books to represent my background in historical research and library work, an artist's palette to depict my photography business and my involvement in gallery exhibits, a pen to signify my skill in writing, editing, and tutoring, and a harp, which is a universal emblem denoting music and musicianship.
