A logo is one of the most important branding investments any business can make. It’s the symbol of your brand. A powerful visual that makes a strong first impression. And over time, it facilitates brand recognition and loyalty.
No Matter What Types Of Logo You Are Considering, We Are Here To Help Guide You!
Simply put, a logo is a symbol of your business. A good logo design conveys a company’s values, services, or products. Logos can be designed in a variety of ways. Here are some common logo design features.
Lettermarks and wordmarks are logos that use stylized fonts to illustrate the nature of the business. For example, sans serif font vs. serif font, variations in capitalization, font style, spacing and color can all communicate a message just within the font style selection.
Our Logo Example:
Graphic-centric logos ( e.g. Pictorial Marks, Abstract logo marks, etc. )
As the name suggests, a graphic centric logo focuses on the graphic element symbols. This type of logo is an icon that represents the business. When someone refers to a logo, they’re often referencing the brand mark or symbol of the graphic-centric logo.
Our Logo Example:
The combination mark
This is a logo that contains both letters and graphics. The graphic is often used as an icon, presented as a stand-alone brand symbol on mediums like social media with design space restrictions.
Our Logo Example:
Similar to a combination mark, an emblem also contains both letters and graphics, but it’s more restrictive than a combination mark. Generally, the letters appear inside the graphic.

Why Partner With Us?
A good logo should be memorable, interesting, and fitting to your brand. A logo is more than a pretty design. It’s your symbol. It’s what helps your business create loyal customers. In order to create a logo that will sustain the test of time, we dig deep to learn who you are and the source of your passion. Passion is the root of any business. The graphics, marketing and customer service are what make it flourish. A good logo is consistent with the business goals, values and the type of customer experience it aims to provide.
Our Logo Design Process:
We’ll begin with a discovery session so our team can learn more about you and your business. With our creative juices flowing, we’ll gather for a brainstorm session to put all ideas on the table and begin the formation of your designs. We have certain check-points in our process to keep you updated and involved. In the final stages of the process, we’ll refine the creation and present to you. Once everyone is smiling, we’ll package up your designs so they’re ready to use. Here’s a bit more about our collaborative stages in the creative process.
Think of this as a casual coffee meet-up. It’s a time dedicated to getting to know you and your business. While it’s informal and fluid, we will guide you through a series of questions that help us learn more about you. We want to know your motivations, passions, goals, and even fears or concerns. We’ll also chat about design preferences so our design team has tangible examples to reference. You can count on us to listen and remember our time together. We’re excellent note-takers, which helps to reference in the creative process.
Creating customer profiles
Depending on the project size and budget, we conduct at least two client interviews to understand who your customers are. During this time, we’ll ask you to select your ideal customers and note why you consider them ideal. Then, we’ll guide you through a series of questions to extract information and begin compiling your customer profiles. This is a proven strategy to create targeted marketing and branding. It helps build an image of your customer so your designs will resonate with them.
Design, refine, perfect.
The design process isn’t always linear. That’s why we always reference our initial notes and brainstorm sessions once we complete any designs. If certain parts don’t meet the criteria, or improvements could be made, or we receive feedback from you, we’ll refine the creations. Our strategists and designers work together on all phases of the design process to ensure the fonts, weight, shape and color choices of your logo align with what we learned during the discovery session. Then, we’ll present the logo options to you and walk you through the creative process and meaning behind every aspect of the logo.
Refresh your logo while maintaining your brand integrity.
Businesses evolve and so will your logo. A successful logo design can stand the test of time. You may need to tweak certain elements to better reflect who you are. We grow and learn about ourselves on a daily basis and maybe the logo needs to be tweaked to reflect that. But we know a successful logo design means the basic element in your original logo should always be intact. Here is a famous example logo evolution: Starbucks:
Using our own logo as an example, we saw an evolution of the design change influenced by who we are and our self-discovery process.
Even with our logo, we see it evolves over the years through self-discovery.

- 2018 Rebrand – Black and red
- 2020 Simplify – Black and gray
Business Card Design
We design to impress.
A business card design can make the difference between a potential customer calling you, or not. Handing over a well-designed business card printed on quality paper will not only bring a good experience with the person you are interacting with, it will also impress them with just how professional and serious you are with your brand.
An excellent business card design is so much more than just pretty cards.
Through an effective design that’s consistent with overall brand strategy, your card design brings strength and credibility to your business. As a result, your customers will find confidence in your brand. Customer confidence can lead to referrals, which grows your business.
You believe in your products and services. Never settle. Let us help you showcase that belief through creative design.
We know there are other business card design options out there. Many online printing services offer various default templates. How many other businesses use that same template?
Your brand is unique. Your services/products are not generic. We shouldn’t fit your brand into an existing design. It should always be the other way around: design to fit your business and brand.
