Custom Designs, Graphics, and Logo Digitizing, Refreshing, Updating
Do you NEED a whole new logo?
Do you HAVE an older logo that is not digitized?
Do you HAVE an OUTDATED logo that needs a facelift?
...We can help!
Sometimes you are starting from scratch, other times you just think it's time for a change, but are hoping to keep the spirit of your existing artwork...
And sometimes the art is perfect, BUT...
DIGITIZING: If, for some reason you are unable to get a digital file, either because it is pre digital, or whomever designed it is no longer available, or worked in a program that does not allow for vector art conversion. 99% of the time, we can reproduce it and get it into file formats that will work for you - sometimes a project is just so complex (such as a hand painted design) that it is impossible to reproduce, but this is typically the exception to the rule. Once we are done, you will have files that you can use, as well as some you can't use (but your advertising outlets will love you for!). We also are available down the road for tweaks if necessary, (sometimes you need an adjustment or a specific file for media that you don't already have) we are happy to help, once our time has been paid for, we will not hold your art "hostage". (Additional charges may apply for more than a minor tweak)
NEW DESIGNS: things to consider, are you looking for that small business look, something that says custom work, all done by me? Or more of a corporate look - ie, the next Nike Swoosh? it all depends upon the image/feel you are trying to project. Do you want words, do you want a symbol, maybe a little dude that people recogize before even reading the text? All part of the process! What do you want to emphasize? All too often people emphasize their name so much that what they do gets lost in translation - it is important to balance these details! What colors do you have in mind? Will it work on a variety of colored backgrounds?
Maybe you have a font you like, and want to use - is it too casual? Too stuffy? Impossible to read (I'm talking to you "Script for your name" people!) We can guide you in the right direction, hopefully as painlessly as possible...
We typically try to offer a few concepts for you to look at, this is a great way to narrow down the feel you are looking for, even though you may have no idea what you want, when you see some stuff, you will know what you do not want, and maybe see just what you were looking for! On the rare occasion, writer's block occurs, we dont like to send stuff we are not in love with, but sometimes will will have to just to get some feedback. Other times we nail it the first time!
EXISTING LOGOS: Sometimes what you have is great on a business card, or even a t-shirt, but some how just doesn't quite work on a sign - or sometimes it can't translate to a 1 color - a full color logo while fancy can sometimes work against you for some forms of advertising...
Other times it just doesnt fit the area you have to work with... we can work with you to create an alternative version that still keeps the feel of the design, and to the average joe unless they are side by side they wont typically even detect a difference.
We try to work on concepts that will be able to conform to a variety of needs. At the end of the job we provide you with art that you can pass on to future outlets as needed so that your logo can remain consistent through different media needs as they come along. Remember, just because something looks awesome on the computer screen, doesnt mean it looks great (or maybe it does, but isnt legible), going by at 35 Mph! Our job is to be sure it works on the side of the road, as well as from a distance, and potentially at a high rate of speed!
