logo design, relevant, versatile, unique

Designing a logo isn’t just about creating a pretty visual. What you’re doing, or taking part in, is developing a brand and communicating a position. It makes sense, then, that the first step in creating a logo should not be about design but about research into these concepts.  Involving the client at this early stage is advised, as your interpretation of their brand may be different from theirs, and it’s essential that the message is clear before any actual designing takes place.

I love to do logos… its a passion of mine in creating a unique and timeless mark, your logo should be relevant, versatile, and iconic. One thing to keep in mind is your logo doesn’t have to say everything about your business, so if you sell coffee beans, your logo doesn’t necessarily have to have coffee beans in it. Apple’s logo isn’t a computer, nor is Nike a running shoe.  Logo design can be tricky and time consuming, research is vital, I start out with pen and paper scribbling out ideas before I dive into illustrator.  There is a great deal to consider while designing a logo, sometimes it has nothing to do with design, it should communicate, be unique and stand out.  Get started today with mcintyre communications!

create great advertising that gets noticed

The world of advertising is crowded by a variety of media, but print ads are as powerful and relevant as ever. They need to stand out from a pool of thousands of messages we are daily bombarded by through various media channels. So how do you make a print advertisement stand out from the crowd & catch the onlooker’s eye? A good image is crucial, there is no doubt about it, but a good image combined with an attention grabbing headline that communicates the purpose of the company’s/product’s core competence is better. In addition, a captivating first paragraph and a good body, translating the core competencies of the brand are definitely success defining elements.
