Since the end of 2004, I've been actively pursuing corporate identity design through the company I work for, MakaluMedia.
The first in a long line of logos was created for Ian Landsman, his firm UserScape and his first product, HelpSpot. In fact, Ian wrote the post Creating a Business Logo back in January 2005, describing the logo design experience from his perspective.
Since the that first web 2.0 logo project, and having been featured in Bob Walsh's Micro-ISV book, I've been receiving many requests to help companies and individuals design their corporate identities. It's been wonderful helping create clean, clear and effective logos for each one of our clients.
Last week I realized we had no central page on the MakaluMedia site, where logo or related information could be viewed. This week I've created a new page where you can view a select collection of logos case studies:
The portfolio explains why Makalu's logo design process is different, along with 4 case studies and images of completed logos. My goal is to continually expand this portfolio page, making it a handy reference for anyone seeking to learn more about our logo design services before they hire us.
I still intend on going in in depth on the design process for logos I create on the Rohdesign Weblog, as I've done for the Outer Level and LiquidFitness logos. I enjoy sharing my thought process and more detailed sketches here in the weblog. From the comments I've received, readers enjoy it as well.
I'm hoping the two pages will compliment each other nicely, with the MakaluMedia Corporate Identity page providing the overview of each logo design, while the weblog can offer richer details, sketches and the thinking behind each design.
