Logo Design

Hey All,

Not sure if this is the right spot to post, but it seems it.

I am looking to get a quick, easy and cheap logo designed for a friend of mine for his business. Would really be something simple with just the company name.

Would anybody be able to help out? Would just do the payment through PayPal.

Let me know.

Thanks,
-Dennis

Have you considered designing the logo yourself? mThere are a few really good and free applications out there. I personally like GIMP, but you could also use sketchbook if something simple is your goal. That way, you could make it more personal and it would be free.

Yeah... good idea if you want a crap logo. Logos aren't supposed to be personal unless your business is all about you. And by the way, GIMP is not for designing logos.

I added the drawing of your friend because you wanted something simple to go with the company name. I added the hat because it makes it more sophisticated.

Client email:

I was thinking about what you showed me, and I like it, it's just that it doesn't tell people anything about my business hours. I mostly do business during the day, so I was wondering if you could include anything that lets people know that????? Maybe the business hours too??

I'm gonna call my daughter and see what she thinks. She's much better at design stuff than me lol...

Reply: How's this? It's a lens flare, so people won't be confused about when you're open. I've also included your business hours.

Let me know how it looks
