my favorite killed logo: Lunar Sports Group.

Because: it had texture, it was traditional, but bold and fun.

 

With every new logo design, I always try to: keep it simple, clean and identifiable

 

When I get stuck, I usually: go as far as I can go and then go to bed or take a long break with a fresh perspective.

 

The most ridiculous thing a client actually said: I can’t think of anything off hand, but it usually involves price. I think most people think a logo only costs $200 tops. It still amazes me that I need to explain the value of something so pivotal to their business.

 

I knew I had made it as a logo designer when: I saw my logo on a Zamboni. That was and still is a mind blowing concept to me.

 

I wish I had thought of Twitter first.

 

My least favorite part of being a logo designer is: having to explain with almost every project that a logo is not a mural. It’s a simple idea, not a long drawn out story.

 

My favorite aspect of iheartlogos is: seeing other great logos.

 

Anything else we should know about or check out?
I think Lost Type Co-op is one of the greatest examples of our industry.
