Custom Logo Design
With over a decade of professional design experience, I have come to believe logos should be clean, simple, timeless and memorable. This means staying away from current logo design trends and fads. Trends fade quickly, your logo shouldn't. I have an extensive portfolio full of award-winning work, and a long list of satisfied clients and testimonials submitted by them.
Logo Design Process
With everyting, there is a process. 1981 has streamlined the logo design process to make it as effortless for the client as possible. This doesn't mean that you won't be involved, it just means that the process has been simplified to minimize the asmount of work done by the client. Simply complete the Logo Design Questionniare, review your initial concepts, receive your final package via secure email download link.
Step 1: Portfolio Review
Before deciding on a person or company to create your new brand identity, it's best to review portfolios to find a designer who's work matches the style or feel you would like to present. If you want a very clean, rounded modern feel, you wouldn't want to hire someone who's portfolio only consists of formal, classic lawfirm logos. Our portfolio is located here. If you haven't taken a look yet, I would suggest you do.
It's also a good idea to read past client testimonials. Because some designers "create" their testimonials out of thin air, you should look for testimonials which include the persons name, and a link to their website. This is the best way to insure that you are reading legit testimonials.
Step 2: Fill Out Project Brief
In order for me to provide you with a high-quality logo that meets your needs and best represents your brand, I need some information about your likes, dislikes, competition, and industry. The Logo Design Questionniare isn't too long, but it helps if you (the client) provide as much information as possible, including website links where applicapble. You also have the ablility to upload any sketches, pictures or files that may be relevant to the project. You should receive your quote within 24 hours of submission. To move forward with your project, a 50% deposit is required, along with the final 50% due upon approval of final logo design. Assuming you have decided to move forward with your project, now all you have to do is wait for your initial concepts.
Step 3: Review Initial Concepts
Some time has gone by and you have received your initial concepts. Now is the time to choose which one you want to move forward with. When you look over your concepts think about what you like and don't like. It's also good to ask for other peoples input here too, as an objective opinion is always a good thing. When you decide upon a concept, just reply to the email that contained your concepts with your choice and what you would like to see changed. This process will happen two or three times depending on your package.
Step 4: Receive Final Logo Package
After we have finished the revision process I will send you an email containing a link to where you can download your final package. No matter what package you ordered, your final files will be industry standard vector files and should be useable by any print or graphic shop. Additional file types available upon request.
