my favorite killed logo: zao.
Because: it has a lot of meaning to me. First it was for a Christian friend and company. The word Zao means ‘flowing water’—so my main goal was to symbolize that in a unique mark. I made a flowing water droplet shape that also formed the letter Z.
With every new logo design, I always try to: learn about what the company does in detail. I really like to put myself in the user’s/customer’s shoes and think about what would appeal to them.
When I get stuck, I usually: go read my bible or pray that God will give me a creative solution. He is after all, the ultimate creator.
The most ridiculous thing a client actually said: “That logo looks like a sore nipple.”
I knew I had made it as a logo designer when: I started turning down 5-10 projects a week because I was too busy.
I wish I had thought of Facebook first.
My least favorite part of being a logo designer is: clients not understanding what will appeal to their customers instead of to them.
My favorite aspect of iheartlogos is: being able to vote up my peers logos and support them as well! I love having an option to vote for my friend’s designs!

I have too many things to share (as my wife always says) but the biggest thing I’m a part of right now is my wife’s site dashingdish.com. I am the designer, photographer, and taste tester.
