Logo Design

I’m one of those crazy logo design nerds who geeks out about a good quality logo when I’m out in public. When I see a great logo, I’m more likely to try a product or service. I’ve even been known to choose a restaurant or coffee shop based on the logo. I’m a weirdo like that.

I bring this same passion for quality, affordable Logo Design to my business from home clients.

I love developing logos for work from home moms, small businesses, organizations, and ministries. You can see some recent samples of my logo design work below.

As a logo designer, I believe that a logo needs to look good on more than your designer’s computer screen and in their portfolio. A good quality logo should look good in whatever format you, the client, plan to use it in.

A good logo design should speak to your customers, and not just to my own personal aesthetic.

I believe if a logo doesn’t work well in black and white, it’s not going to work well once we start adding color and texture.

the difference between a logo, identity and branding

The Difference Between a Logo, Identity, and Branding

When we talk about logo design, sometimes the words “logos”, “Identity”, and “brand” or “branding” are all used interchangeably.

If a logo doesn't work in black and white it doesn't work

If a Logo Doesn’t Work in Black and White, It Doesn’t Work

My professor in college was right. If a logo doesn’t work in black and white, it doesn’t work well at all. An effective logo shouldn’t have to rely on color to be clear and effective. The sad thing is, it took me about twenty years to grasp how right he was. Funny how that works. […]
