Logos, trademarks, graphic look & feelidentity, artwork, look and feel, logo

I have always loved designing company logos, icons, emblems, trademarks and graphic concepts; graphic Look & Feel. My preferred field of work is around startups and small businesses.

From a single shape or icon to a graphic ‘identity’ including logo, colourscheme, lettering and images. I am good at interpreting your (business) plans and translating them into an attractive look&feel that your target audience can identify with.

Client side creative consultancy

If you hired another design firm for your rebranding or redesign process (identity or interior). I can help you interpret their sketches, predict consequences and find flaws in proposals, from your side. I am a very affordable reality check. 

 

 

Princing / fee

A generic solution comes at a standard price. You wont pay much more for a unique, creative solution, sometimes even less. When you hire me, you pay for materials and ideas, not for corporate overhead and retail margins.

I usually work on a fixed fee basis (after agreement on the final design and price)

 

 

Typical client questions:

  • “We would like our office entrance to be more inviting and user-friendly”
  • “We need an object designed that is edible yet feels like a prize”
  • “Can you design an elegant sign that is weather/idiot proof
  • My ecological meatball startup needs a logo and an idea of where to go with the identity, packaging and eventually interior
  • We want to partititon this room, without darkening it
  • This gigantic chimney in my roofgarden needs some life/love”
  • and best of all: “Please fill this empty wall, can you make us a proposal?”.

I love answering questions like these, contact me with whatever design question you have in mind. A lot of questions can be solved long distance as well.
