…that despite my best efforts to come up with a suitable logo for my website, I don’t have nearly enough skills in design to create anything that doesn’t scream, “Awww…he did it all by himself!”
My good friend Amanda has been telling me to seek the help of hers for a while now, but I’ve been too proud to, until now. (Seriously, it’s like I’m one of those husbands who hates asking for directions: “We’re fine! We don’t need any help here! No, I know where we’re going! Dammit, gimme that map!!!”
Amanda’s friend, Jen Moore, is the owner of Aries Designs, based out of Great Falls, Montana. Jen has done gorgeous work for Amanda in designing her logo and business cards. From her website:
The Design Process: Aries Designs likes to ensure that the client is satisfied. I involve you in every step of the design process. I consult with you constantly and ensure that the design we create is the design you are happy with. I will sit down with you and discuss your design ideas and print budget. When the design process begins I will create several designs and send you proof’s. This is your design and it is important to me that you are satisfied with the final product that we have created together.
I gave her a short email with some preliminary specs, and she’s agreed to let me show you her first drafts:
I, personally, love both of these! So far, I’m ecstatic with the results! There are things that I would like to change, but you’ll just have to keep reading to see how these develop.
What do you think of these logos so far? Feedback is important to me. What are your experiences in developing your own websites? Comments, people!
