here look at these pictures i drew :D :D

my post to say hi

hi









i'm 32 and i do graphic design, here's some of my work, and though i often collaborate, i made all of these on my own:

i also do custom images and typography in any vector style, and i work with many illustrators so i can make any kind of art, but both of these i drew myself, my own style is 'simple and iconic' i don't do paintings, i do symbols and precision work like this:

and to show you what the rest of the brand might look like here's a mockup i made for a client who cancelled:





so you can see i do EVERYTHING, shirts, hats, car magnets, business cards, letterhead, web ads, web graphics, email footers, etc. anything you'd want, i can make it

all these logos are from my $100-200 price range, average cost of a business card design once the logo is done is $50, including lifelong updates in case you get a new number or something, and i also make more technical stuff for more money, it's up to the person's budget, i've done logos for as little as $20 that were a great value, but you REALLY get what you pay for in my industry because time = money, and the more you pay the more i can do...

also i make websites, here's one i made for $400: www.ZenMaid.com

well anyway, thanks for reading, i guess i'm boring except when i talk about art according to people so that's what the heck i talk about lol! if you want some critique of your logo and website and marketing stuff you can ask me, i'm always down to talk shop if i'm not too busy with work, i work about 14 hours a day because i'm insane lol

Hey nice work. Ill keep you in mind in the future, I do website building and administration but not too much design. I leave most of that to people much more creative than I.

I have a new girl that is a graphic designer. The other day she was telling me about logo's and I said that a logo never made or kept me from making 1 penny. So she continued to tell me what all they told her in school about logo's. So I asked..... what is Merry Maids Logo? She had no idea. What is The Maids Logo? She had no idea. So I said well, those are the 2 biggest cleaning companies and if a normal 'jo' doesn't know either of them how on earth would anyone ever know a small company?

Like most things, people suck others in to making them THINK they need something when they really don't. Just like most advertising. 90% of all advertising is wasted money. But.... far be it for me.....

I'm a bit of a graphic designer myself, so good to see another one here.

I was really impressed with your Sir Locksalot logo. That's incredibly clever.

The one that really has my attention though is the thumbs-up logo you're using for your avatar. Is that all vector? If so, that's a genius use of the medium. It looks like a photograph of a real object.

Incredibly clean and sharp-looking. Great use of shading and highlighting to make it pop out at you.

It's funny, I just replied to another user's post about wanting to do magnetic signs. What if I have my own logo already? What would you charge just to print and ship?

You know, I think you're mostly right. If you just do enough homework, you can figure out how to advertise for yourself, and usually for little to no cost, or at least at a fraction of what professionals charge.

I really see the importance of having a strong logo, though. It's a point of pride. If you do enjoy success, why not look good doing it? Maybe it says something about the lack of quality in the logos you tried to get the girl to recall, and less about whether or not people notice logos. Either way, I definitely want to stand out from my competitors.

check out the site fiverr and if you message me I can personally tell you the exact person I used. For $10 I was given 2 different logos that were custom designed for me after I told her what I was looking for. Worth the money for the result. I think I have my logo on my page
