To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.— Winston Churchill
Creating your brand, like any identity, is a uniquely personal process. Design gives your company a face. It sets the tempo, tells a story and generates an emotion. It can make the viewer feel calm, exhilarated, or inspired. There are numerous large and small decisions to be made but I believe in keeping the process simple.
I want to find out about you - who you are and what your company is about and mould a symbol that represents you.
Whether your design is around for 10 years or 100 years, it’s your company’s mark on the world. It is my responsibility as a designer to make the mark you leave on the world the biggest and the most engaging.
