I always love when previous clients come back to me for other graphic design projects. This client, I worked with last year on her blog header. And I guess she was pleased, because now she has come back for more. Gotta love a happy client!
This client’s requests were fairly simple. She needed a logo and header design for her new Virtual Assistant business called FPE Services Online. She specializes in WordPress and Social Media Maintenance.
These were a few of her specifications:
- Some sort of Socialable Icon representing social media maybe?
- Colors – blue and silver
- Graphics in the header to represent social media platforms
With not much to go with, it was really up to me to come up with a design that would best suit her business. When I plan a design for any graphic, whether it be a logo, header, or even a button ad – I always first take a look at what the business or website is all about. So, for this graphic, I took the idea of a social icon and came up with a couple different option for her to choose from.
I let her know that my personal favorite was #4. And she also asked opinions from some of her friends and family and that was one of their top choices as well. So she decided to go with it.
My next project was taking the logo design and creating a website header for her. I thought a lot about how to incorporate the different social networking and media icons into the header and then decided to tie in the site’s title “Social Community Organizer”. When I think about organizing in business, I think about file folders. So, I decided to create file folder images with the social icons on them. I also incorporated the circle design from the icons into the background of the header as a faded finish into the blue. Great opportunity to play with the image fade in one of my favorite (free) design programs called Gimp.
My client was very pleased with the outcome on both the logo and header designs. Can you believe I didn’t even have to do any revisions? I LOVE that!
