Hi. I’m Kyre, a graphic designer specialising in brand identity design. I’m here to help you design a visual identity that represents your brand values, communicates the right message to your target audience and stands out from your competition. To achieve these objectives I put love, care and thought into every project.
Frequently asked questions:
> What is your logo design process?
My design process varies from project to project, but generally it goes in this order: Brief > Research > Inspiration > Brainstorming > Sketching > Rendering > Presentation > Refinement > Delivery > Support.
> How much does a logo cost?
It depends on many factors: type of a logo (graphic, typographic, combined), where it will be used (website, vehicles, business cards etc.), the size of the company, the industry, the number of deliverables, the client’s budget etc. The last factor is quite important, since you decide on how much you are willing to invest into your business. My prices start with $330 for a logo (mostly suitable for small businesses and blogs). This price allows me to go through every step of my logo design process and provide 1–3 concepts that I think will work. The larger the budget, the more time I invest into your project resulting in a well thought-out and executed logo that will last for years and (hopefully) decades.
> Do you prefer to work on an hourly rate or a fixed price basis?
It depends on the project, but I generally prefer a fixed price basis, since I believe that my clients pay me for the result, not for the time taken. I also do from 1/3 to 1/2 of my work “offline” doing brainstorming, conceptualising
and sketching, so I can’t have the Upwork time tracker running all the time. For fixed price projects I require 50% paid upfront and 50% paid before delivering the final files. It’s a common practice in the design industry, plus I have quite a bit of positive feedback to back up my trustworthiness.
> How much time do you need to design a logo/identity?
It usually takes from one to two weeks to design a logo, however different projects have different requirements, so the time frame varies from project to project. Once a design brief is completed, I can give you a more accurate time frame.
> What logo versions/lock-ups will I get?
Depending on your project’s requirements you will get horizontal, vertical and symbol lock-ups. Of course it depends on whether you want a graphic logo (Apple, Nike, Twitter), a typographic logo (FedEx, Canon, Google) or a combined logo (National Geographic, Microsoft, Chanel).
> What colour versions will I get?
Again, it depends on your project. You may have one or more colour versions, plus black, white and greyscale versions. The colour versions are delivered in Pantone colours for print usage and RGB colours for screen usage.
> What file formats will I get?
I usually deliver all logo lock-ups and all colour versions in PDF and EPS formats for print usage and SVG and PNG formats for screen usage. More file formats can be delivered upon request.
> Can you design website favicons, app icons and social media avatars?
Yes, I can design website favicons (all browser and device sizes), app icons (App Store, Google Play, Windows Store) and social media avatars (Twitter, Facebook etc.).
> Can you design a brand style guide?
Yes, I can design a brand style guide that describes the correct and incorrect logo usage, spacing, colour palette, typography, etc.
> What about other print and web applications?
I have experience designing various print and web applications including: business cards, stationary, brochures, marketing collateral, signs, website mockups (without coding), social media cover images etc. Let me know what you need, and I will be glad to help you in any way I can.
