Client Brief & Reserch

  • I translate my sketches into digital format using design software like Adobe Illustrator, and I meticulously refine and iterate on my designs, paying close attention to details such as typography, color, and scalability.

  • Experimenting with different color palettes and typography options is an essential part of finding the perfect visual identity.

Design, refine, sleep, repeat...


  • I collaborate closely with the client, sharing my initial design concepts for their feedback. Listening to their input is crucial, and I'm always open to making necessary revisions based on their preferences and suggestions. I iterate on the design, incorporating client feedback while ensuring the logo maintains a strong and effective visual identity.

...Are we getting warmer with this look? How about now?


  • Once the client is satisfied with the design, I prepare the final logo in various file formats suitable for different applications, whether it's for print, web, or social media. I deliver the logo files to the client and provide comprehensive guidelines on logo usage, including minimum size, clear space, and various color variations.

The finish line is near and everybody's happy :)


  • I brainstorm ideas and sketch rough concepts on paper. This phase allows me to explore various design directions while keeping the project's objectives and research findings in mind. Creating preliminary sketches of potential logo designs helps me visualize my ideas.
