Read the fine print with logo design
JUST A TIP: Read the fine print when it comes to logo design. Some businesses who create your logo will include major tie-ins that allow them to hold your artwork hostage, so you have no choice but to stay with them, even it you don't want to. When working with a designer, make sure you understand what rights are included with the creation of your logo. You never know where the future might lead, but you know you want to take your graphics with you, wherever you may go!
Budget, budget, budget
When deciding what you need for your business, also figure out your budget for the project. Many people will spend $300 on business cards when they could have spent $90 on the same product. Sit down and figure out exactly what you are looking for and then look for the best price and service. When you do that, you'll end up with the best experience and result for your project.
Teresa Ewers of Graphicbliss - the designer of the new logo for N'MPower Albuquerque
Teresa Ewers of Graphicbliss Graphic Design was honored when asked to create the new logo for N'MPower Albuquerque, a non-profit organization that mobilies men to reduce sexual risk taking, encourages regular HIV testing, builds positive social connections and supports peers to have safer sex.
The creation of the logo was no easy task. Ewers had to take four graphics (shown above) submitted by N'MPower volunteers and community members and merge them together. The result will be revealed at this year's OUTstanding Awards on March 23th and place on the Graphicbliss website the following Monday.
