the whole package

Ok… so we are not totally done with the whole package… but we are getting there. I met with two wonderful ladies that are on the board of the Memphis Area Pregnancy Care Center, Ellen & Pam… and there are others that give their time to basically save lives. What a wonderful way to serve our community!

We started with the logo, they had the concept down so I just took the idea of little feet wrapped in a heart and added a little Bb style. Then I got to design business cards, letterhead & envelopes to go with it. Our next projects will be signage, brochures & a website. You can visit them right now on their facebook page here. {MAPCC on Facebook} You know how it is with finding volunteers, it is not always the easiest thing to do. So, if you are in the Memphis Area and interested in either volunteering, helping financially or giving baby items I know that the gang at the pregnancy center & the people they serve will be most appreciative.

Check out the initial package below…

a few new logos from Britta burrus design.

These are a few logos that I have had the opportunity to create with my clients recently. A lot of the time I will get it on the first round, but sometimes we go a few more to get to the final product. I love the challenge of a logo.

Each of these logos are so different as are the clients and their businesses. It is such fun to get to know my clients and what they envision. That is the challenge of a logo… to come up with something clean & professional that will stand out from the crowd but is still a part of what or who the business is.

If you know someone who has a business or is just starting out and needs a new (or an updated) logo send them my way… I would love the opportunity to help them stand out from the crowd. I offer logo design & development, business cards, stationary, brochures, rackcards, website, blog & more… everything to brand your business.

Baileys Floral & Gifts
Bailey's Floral & Gifts :: This one took a couple rounds to come up with a final product, but it says it all and is still simple & attractive. Can't wait to use it in their business cards and other promotional materials...
Team K Outfitters :: A hunting outfitter in NE Missouri... this logo is fun, edgy and simple. It will work well with their hats, Ts, business cards, website & more.

the logo.

The logo is the foundation, the starting point. It will set the whole tone of what your promotional materials will say to the world, your marketplace.

It is amazing all that you can get into a logo without going overboard. Knowing when ‘enough is enough’ is important. What needs to be said with your mark and what can be left out of the logo and said with other projects is key.

Check out some of these logos below and see if you can interpret what the business owner wants to communicate to you with just their logo. Scroll down to the bottom to see how close you get.

This is what is being said by each of these logos…(so we hope).

America’s Renewable Energy The green and leaf represent growth, sustainability and renewability. The leaf is a soy bean leaf and the drop of oil falls into a pool with endless rings (also says sustainable and renewable). The name really encompasses what they want to say, but the logo wraps it up in a nice package and could be understood without the business name included.

……………………………

Bradley Insurance Agency This agency specializes in crop insurance. I had given a couple different concepts with both wheat & corn, wheat was chosen. I love how the ‘y’ in Bradley gently surrounds and holds the wheat, just like an insurance company should. They wanted to be professional and clean but have an approachable and inviting feel.

……………………………

Fistful of Talent This logo was designed for a blog header — Tagline ‘Recruiters, HR, Consultants and Corporate Types on all things Talent…’ . The idea was to use the header as a visually enticing element that gets people curious and want to stick around a while and see what fot is all about. Check it out (www.fistfuloftalent.com) & see whatcha think.

……………………………

Mid-States Manufacturing & Engineering This logo was designed for a Material Handling Equipment Manufacturer. They are mostly a company that focuses on Custom products for their clients. This logo says professional, strong, steel, all the while highlighting one of their specialty products, the 5th wheel steer-wagon. We also did a version of the logo without the truck to use on some of the more detailed projects (i.e. Banner, Catalog Cover etc.) that if the truck logo was used would take away from the rest of the piece.

……………………………

Outdoor Club (a ministry of Stanwood Area Youth for Christ) The OC logo was a lot of fun. They wanted to have a compass as part of the logo and of course the outdoors (It’s located on the west coast so the mountains worked well). Can you see the compass in the sunshine? The colors and paint brush font keep it young and fun, adventurous… all what the logo is meant to say!

……………………………

These are just a few of the logos I have had the opportunity to design and develop with the help of my wonderful clients. I think it is important for my clients to be a part of the whole process. We are a team. I listen to the ideas and what they have envisioned for their business and then it is my job to get that packaged into the perfect mark that will tell the world what they are about.

Check out the Bb portfolio for some more logos & other projects. After all the logo is only the foundation, from there you need to build your brand with your marketing package. { business cards, stationary, advertising, website & more }

If your business (or someone you know) is in need of a logo or other design project feel free to call or email to discuss it and get a FREE estimate. Let the fun begin!
