Paula talks about choosing the symbolism of her "Successful Corporate Millennial Woman Logo"
I designed my logo as a reflection of a millennial woman smoothly ascending her corporate arena, through the honey-colored swirl that always surrounds her. She continually holds her goal (the star), because once she reaches one goal she goes after another. The color of honey represents wealth, riches, prosperity, and creates success and illuminates the path to her goals.
I chose dark blue to symbolize integrity, knowledge, power, expertise and stability. Violet encourages inspiration, originality, and combines wisdom and power with sensitivity. Turquoise helps to open up lines of communication between her heart and her words. It assists with decision making and the development of management and organizational skills. It also aids concentration with clarity of thought. Magenta is an instrument of change and turns your ambitions and desires into reality.
