When I decided to launch my newest online publication — David Boles Bells — I knew I wanted a logo that included a Kettlebell. Unfortunately, I am not a great digital artist, and so my first stop to find some design help was Adobe Stock. I found this logo that I really loved. I purchased a license, and then discovered I had no idea how to edit the image in Adobe Illustrator to personalize the logo to BolesBells.com. I did a little research to see if I could locate the artist who originally designed the logo I purchased to see if I could hire that artist to design a whole new logo for Boles Bells.
As the once greatBob Dylan proclaimed, in his lovely song, “Ring Them Bells” —
Ring them bells, ye heathen
From the city that dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries
’Cross the valleys and streams
— and today, I use that song title (forgiving its intrinsic English grammar problems) as one inspiration for a new website, and blog, I’ve created called: BolesBells.com! The new site is dedicated to older folk, like me, who are aged 50 or older, and who want to get into Kettlebell workouts. I settled on “David Boles Bells” as the name of the new project because I would often listen to “Ring Them Bells” while working out with my Kettlebells — it was time to “Ring Them Boles Bells!” There is a distinct connection for me between the power of that song, and the majesty of flowing in a Kettlebell workout. I also appreciate how every artist who sings “Ring Them Bells” presents a completely different take, and inspiration, on the lyric — just like we, we Kettlebellians, all have different routines, and practices, even though the core intention remains the same: To get in shape and stay there! As well, as we celebrate this new Boles Bells online entity, I am also honored to share with you the lovely “Boles Bells” logo created by the incredibly talented Andrei Gorshkov:
