Logo Design

Logo Design

What will the logo design process be like?


Once the agreement papers are signed and a 50% upfront is paid, You will submit a Creative Brief questionnaire, so that I'll have an idea of what you are looking for and a base to start the design work. Within 3 to 5 business days you will receive your initial concepts (the number of concepts you receive is based on which package you purchased).

To speed up the process here are 3 recommendations:
Fill out the creative brief questionnaire completely.
Provide as much details as you can, so i can get it right the first time. Talk to me to get a clear idea of what you want to see in your logo. If you are indecisive, the process can take longer.




How long does a logo design take?


The turnaround time for a logo from sales to completion is typically 2-3 weeks, subject to my workload which will be discussed before any payments are made. Timescales are also dependent on response time, and any additional changes to designs.




Do I have to be local to work with you?


Nope! We work with clients all over the US.




How many logos do I get?


Following the design phase, you will be presented with the logo options based upon agreed objectives. Once final payment has been made, you will own the copyright to the final agreed design.




What if I want to make a change to a logo?


That's no problem at all. When the first set of designs are presented to you I will explain why design decisions have been made. At this point you will have the opportunity to provide feedback and request modifications if required. You can request as many changes as you want, however up to 4 revision rounds are included within the typical project scope. In the unlikely event that additional revisions are required beyond this, they will be charged at a cost of $50.00 per revision round, and will be added onto the final invoice.




How much input do I have in the process?


A lot! Your input and feedback is crucial to this process. We’ll start with a lot of questions about your needs, your likes, your wants and work with you to develop just the right look and functionality.




How does Copyright & Trademark Registration work?


On completion of the logo design project, and once payment has been made, the copyright for the final agreed logo is automatically transferred to you. Copyright protection means that the copyright holder of the work retains exclusive rights to print, display and distribute the design. This is what's transferred to you, and means you can do anything you want with the logo. I only ask that I can include the logo in my portfolio as an example of work carried out. Trademark registration on the other hand is something that will need to be carried out by a trademark attorney, or you can do it yourself through the government website. If this is something you plan to do I can refer you to a company that I frequently use and can recommend. Trademarking the logo will allow you to add the ® symbol and it also provides legal protection to anything confusingly similar within the locations and categories you register the logo in. If this is something you plan to do, let me know so I can provide a variant with the ® in the final set of files to use once the registration has gone through.




What if I don’t like the first set of logos at all?


We'll jump on a call, and we'll work together to establish what's not working, why, and we'll work out a direction so we can proceed with the project. It's worth noting that the designs presented to you will be based on goals agreed with you before the design phase begins. This will include information about your business, competition and target audience. I focus my design decisions on goals, which I will explain when presenting the designs. This will mean I have considered your business, target audience and competition. As a logo is a strategic tool it doesn’t need to be liked by you personally, but should instead perform for your business, and this is something I will discuss with you. I will cooperate with you to throughout the project to ensure the design achieves all goals agreed upon, which will include any specific requests made before starting the designs. It’s unlikely to happen, however, if after attempts to find an ample solution you still dislike the designs presented to you, you don’t need to make full payment. Before starting the project I take 50% deposit which is non refundable, but if you don’t like the work done for you, you don’t need to pay the final 50%. But I will retain ownership of all designs, ideas and work carried out during the process.




What do I get?


Once your logo design is completed and depending on the package purchased, I will supply a comprehensive kit of files to allow the use of the logo across various mediums. Below is a summary of what I will provide: CMYK version – Full colour printing is made up of only 4 colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black.
