Savvy business owners, and inspiring entrepreneurs understand that a logo is a strategic tool, and when designed well will make your business more profitable by targeting the correct market, broadcasting the right messages and differentiating you from your competition. Using a goal based identity design process, AJ Hashmat will work with you to design a high quality, professional logo design that will meet key strategic goals, allowing you to make the right first impressions with long lasting results.
AJ follows a goal based logo design process that ensures the final design you receive correctly represents you as a business, and attracts the right audience. To achieve this AJ will kick off the process by working with you to create a concise list of objectives for the logo which allows him to focus the design decisions to ensure the final design fulfils its purpose, and adds value to your business on-going. During the design phase AJ will explore a vast number of potential directions, however, will only select the most suitable for presentation based on the the agreed upon goals. A formal presentation document is then prepared, showing each logo design individually along with supporting images of the design in use, which will allow you to visualise the design in a real life setting. AJ will also include supporting notes with each design to explain how the objectives have been met. This document, along with the advice provided will allow you to select the most suitable logo for your business, and will give you confidence that it will perform for you too. Once the logo has been agreed, the artwork will be refined and finalised, and a kit of logos will be created allowing you to use your logo across web and print, at a range of sizes and applications. Full copyright ownership of the final logo design will also be transferred so you can use your new logo as you wish without worry.
Once the logo design is complete and full payment made AJ will supply a logo kit containing your new logo in various formats suitable for both digital and print-based application, and will transfer full copyright ownership of the design to you. To ensure your new logo is versatile, and that you have everything you need for the foreseeable future, the logo kit will include variations of the logo. Along side the full color version the kit will also include different lockups, single color versions (both black and white), as well as a Pantone version to allow for cost effective printing. The file formats provided will be in scalable vector format (ai, EPS and PDF) as well as raster-based images for online use (Jpeg and PNG). Along with the digital files, a PDF user guideline document will be supplied to help you understand how to use the logo files, but if at any point you do have questions or need guidance with the files AJ will be happy to help and support you along the way. If required, other file formats not mentioned can be added to the kit upon request.
