Im looking for someone competent, and most importantly, cost effective to take a rough draft sketch I have made of my company logo and turn it into something I would be proud to include on my website. As mentioned I do have a few ideas already "on paper" and scanned in my computer but im looking for someone to enhance it, clean it up, and add their "pizazz" to it. The logo is based on Military/Tactical so anyone military friendly or tactical in mind frame would probably understand more of what im trying to accomplish in the logo. If you know what the term is and how to make my logo "high speed" then your probably perfect for this little job.
If youve made it this far in reading, I appreciate your time already and hope I can interest you more. I am a small business and before the end of the year plan on hiring on a team to completely redo my website and make it more functional. I would like to have a completed logo before the new year. My requirements, I feel, are pretty simple. I need a professional yet flashy looking logo and something that speaks of the niche products we have available. There are a growing number of online tactical stores with fancy tacti-cool logos so you can get an idea of what others are using and what is working for them.
As for the proper candidate, they must have good communication skills and be able to take the ideas in my head as well as the ideas they suggest and blend the two. Prior experience designing is less important to me than open mindedness and a passion to create something outstanding and astounding. As mentioned before, Military friendly or anyone with Tactical experience is a major plus. If you happen to have "graffiti" or "modern urban" graphic capabilities this may be something youll be interested in as well since the demograph my company reaches to is generally more "warrior" minded.
The only other major point for this project is price. There are a plethora of people that can do this job and there is always somebody willing to undercut the next designer.. I dont want to get into all that. I do need a good price but rest assured if the work is good I will be back with bigger and better projects. I will shortly be in the process of developing my own line of knives and edged weapons and have quite a few ideas for them that will need graphic design so there is the strong potential for more work for the right candidate. While I wish I could hire on the perfect designer regardless, price will more than likely be the make-or-break for this project.
This pretty much sums the project requirements and proper person for the project. If you have any questions or just want to see what ive already come up with just let me know. I am generally pretty busy with my work but I will get back to you as fast as possible.
