Design Process

Logo Design Questionnaire

Clients are required to fill the Logo Design Questionnaire which will be sent to you upon initial inquiry. Please provide as much details as possible so that I will be able to understand your requirement clearly.

Research

Based on the answers you provide in the Logo Design Questionnaire, I will conduct a research to better understand your company, products and services, your competition and related brands, logos and marks. Thereafter I will create mood boards.

Brainstorming

Based on the results from my research and the mood boards, I try to find the most suitable keywords to build the design ideas.

Sketching/Vectorizing

Using the design ideas, I start sketching everything that comes to my mind. I then select a few best ideas and refine the sketches to finally decide on which idea to vectorize.

Feedback/Revisions

This phase decides the project's closure or the requirement of potential modification/s. If revisions are needed, then such changes will be done based on the terms agreed previously.

Finalize

When a concept is approved by the client, I prepare the final files. Final files include the design files in vector format, high and low resolution images for print and digital purposes, icons, the Logo Guidelines Document and the Copyright Transfer Statement.

Clients
