Branding, Identity and Logo Design

Samples of our Logo Design work

Successful branding and identity systems promote recognition and enhance market image. The identity that your company presents to the world is instrumental in your success. We have over 35 years of experience in graphic design.

The process first involves research into

  1. competition,
  2. the appropriate design for the market and
  3. visualizing the unique style originating from the client.

Once these criteria have been established I use the research to provide three concepts that satisfy the requirements.

The client then responds to the first round of rough concepts with comments on which design elements work the best to satisfy their needs.

This process is repeated for the second and third rounds which refine the design until a satisfactory logo is selected.

Once the logo design has been finalized the final step is to produce the logo sheet in varying sizes and with instructions on how the logo should be used.

Other, properly formatted versions of the logo will be furnished for website, email and print uses.
