> Full vector design;

LOGO RE-BRANDING

This can be a modernisation of the exisiting logo or a completely new concept but I recommend the retention of some elements of the existing logo, such as colour, font etc. as this helps brand recognition.

The design process and offering is the same for new logo design or logo re-design.

BRANDING

Your logo is the cornerstone for all other branding. It determines the look and ‘feel’ of everything that your logo will appear on.

Visual mock-ups of various scenarios will be created to show you how your logo will look in a ‘real-life’ setting, such as signage, business cards, website etc.

How I work

Say-Hello-JKS-Design

SAY
HELLO!

The first step is to get in touch…

Send me an email or give me a call to briefly tell me about your design project and requirements.

Getting-to-Know-You-JKS-Design

GETTING TO
KNOW YOU

Next, we meet – either in person or virtually via Zoom, Google Meet, Skype…

We can have a chat about you, your business and your project type. This also helps us both decide if we are a good fit to work together.

Tell-Me-More

TELL ME MORE…
YES, REALLY!

The more information you can give at the outset, betters the chance that I’ll hit the mark with concept creation, first time around.

If you are happy to prepare your own brief to guide me, great! I will also ask you to complete a short Google Form of questions based on your design project type.

Eye-Love-Hate-JKS-Design

LOVE/HATE
IS IMPORTANT

I will ask you to give samples/examples of any design(s) that you like and also any design(s) that you dislike, and why. The same for colour preferences and dislikes. 

The examples you give do not need to be directly related to your business sector or even design project type… e.g. you might like a certain website but you require print design.

Concept-Creation-JKS-Design

CONCEPT
CREATION

Using the information you have given me – your brief (if applicable), your Google  and examples of likes/dislikes, I will research your sector, your competitors and suppliers (if applicable) to create a professional design solution for you.

I will submit and initial draft for you to review and we can then work together to shape this into a design that you are happy with.

Let’s work
together

on your next project
