So when Chad asked me about branding his blossoming photography business, I was more than happy to say yes. He wanted something rustic, masculine, and fun. He also used the word "approachable," which I had never encountered before but thought it was a great thing to include in how you want your business to feel to others.
For his logo, I did something that I've been seeing pop up lately around design blogs: a brand board!
It was a lot of fun to make to make this board, and it helped me convey to him how I see his brand and the different aspects of his logo, along with colors and seamless patterns that can carry over into blog or twitter backgrounds. I also wanted to provide the fonts that I think go nicely with his logo that he can use in any print materials he has--business cards, stationery, CDs...the options are endless!
So if you have any photography needs, check out CS Photo. I promise that you're bound to have a fun time and get some great pics out of it as well. You can find him on facebook here.
