What makes working with Kendol different?

Contrary to most logo designers, Kendol takes the time to understand and learn about your business’s target audience, core purpose, history, and value proposition. Using this strategy, he understands what milestones your business needs to meet in order for your identity to meet its business objectives.

During the ideation phase, Kendol uses the business objectives as a guidepost combined with Tony Buzan’s Mind Mapping techniques and visual process brainstorming to explore over 100 ideas and variations for your logo. Beginning with thumbnail sketches in pen, Kendol will concept plenty of directions and show you the options referenced by the creative brief before taking the project into a scalable vector format in Adobe Illustrator.

While using this vector-based software, Kendol can rapidly produce designs at any scale starting in black and white and also explore perfectly paired fonts. This will allow you to receive industry-standard, professionally practiced results for your logo no matter what intended use you’ll need now or later.

You will receive three options for your logo reflected solely in the agreed-upon needs of your business, and these will also be in context to the needs of your business so you’ll know how they will apply in the real world and how your customers are most likely to experience them. Every design decision that Kendol makes has an intended purpose that aligns through type, the choice of colors relevant to your company’s values, reinforcing your intended brand voice through visual systems that last when your customers encounter your brand experience.

Your logo you will receive for your business will be more than just something you think your business has to have billable, a trademark of your business identity identifiable and timeless. The flexibility of your symbol will allow consistent communication no matter what new technologies or communication mediums emerge. The integrity of your brand will maintain the highest standards your organization has to offer, every single time.

Once revisions are complete and we have made adjustments, your logo will be in all the proper format for your business. This will include all vector and raster files Ai, JPEG, EPS, TIFF, SVG, PDF, PNG.
