We are to embarrassed to show you these, but when we have some spare time, we will go back in the archives, load them and you can cringe with us - just for a good laugh and maybe to use for "How not to do it lessons"
2013-06 Globes - The Start
The start of the Akukhanya Educational Consulting unit logo. We started as Akukhanya, then added Victory, and Jireh Fountain and then came E-du-VENTs, unCAP'ed, LoveDROPs, then Marina's Pearls & Cai's and finally came Ali's Travels as an independent unit.
2013-08 Our Globes got "Banner-ed"
Many variations of the globes and names were tested, nothing seemed to have gelled for us, until we hit on the banner over the globe. Elm the Entrepreneur showed up, bugging us about an entrepreneurial blog. Now we were 10.
2013-09 The Big-Bang of our Logos
We wanted the globes to be part of the logos of each unit, so that it told a story about the unit. Our globes got Big-Banged and the logos evolved.
2013-10 Faces in the Globe
Every globe was mixed with the face of one of our learners, to keep on reminding us who we are working for and what our vision and passion is about. It keeps us focused and on track.
2013-11 Growing Bigger and Stronger
The tree is a symbol of growth, health and strength. Our units are growing from strength to strength, how much better can it be than a tree holding up our globe.
2013-12 & 2014-02 Exploring the colours of our units
Our units are established. The globes are grounded. The colour of each unit has gelled and are representing the vision of each unit. Now it is time to play with the colours, to establish the rainbow community and to have fun and play with our paintboxes and colour pencils.
2014-03 Website Banner Exploring
Our website needs to be expanded and divided into the units, as each unit is starting to develop its own personality and is demanding more individual attention. We are exploring various templates and options. This is our first exploration of colour blocks & page headings.We are exploring a blog for each unit.
2014-04 Colour Banners-Simplified
We are still website exploring - trying out different templates and designs and colours to give a true reflection of each unit.
Each of our units are now fighting for their own identity. They have become communities and not just divisions of Akukhanya. Splitting the website into individual entities have guided us to "Doors" that not only represent the colour, but also the feel of each unit. We are having so much fun growing with this company and seeing how it is growing as intertwined, but also strong separate branches, each bearing its own fruit.
Two of the Akukhanya themes have developed into fully fledged units. They are still being developed, but their doors have shown up and shown us their colours and feel.
2014-07 Buttons - yes more website needs
As our website evolves and change on us, the graphics also evolve and change. The latest are a series of buttons and they are really great to look at. Oh, how we love his creative process. (Even it is sad when we have to say goodbye to all beloved graphics.)
