Another fab design! A new logo anyone?I’ve said before, but hey il say it again, I love coming up with new branding for existing and new businesses. It’s great meeting the client who has a whole new business idea and trusts you to design the first thing people see.
.
.
Logos are the selling point of your business. It’s always a good idea to get a graphic designer to design you something that is original and unique to you. We can help come up with exactly what you want and add in little extras that are to do with you/ your family/ the company.
.
.
I keep seeing people with the same or similar logos which they have got because they are ‘cheap’ starting up your own business is hard, however if you want to hit your target audience, stand out from the crowd and professional then get a graphic designer to brand you.
.
.
Stand out don’t blend in with the competition 🤗

This is a logo designed for a client who has just started his own painting and decorating business and he is doing fantastic.
