Branding Inception: $2,000 - CLOSED

Zinc is a recently incorporated business focused on technical team training, end-to-end product development, and technical management consulting. We are investing in a solid foundation for our branding. To do so, we are looking for a designer to provide logo design, typography choices, and color selection services.

The resulting brand will reflect the following values:

  • Simplicity
  • High-quality
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Feedback-driven

Is This Gig For You?

The ideal designer:

  • Has a solid portfolio of logos and brand designs.
  • Asks great questions to get the right kind of feedback they need to make a great design.
  • Is comfortable managing a feedback-centric workflow to refine and hone a design.
  • Is comfortable time-boxing their work.

The Results I Expect

The output of this work would be:

  • A logo suitable for printing on square or round buttons, stickers, etc.
  • A logo suitable for use as a banner on a website or in other situations where a rectangular logo is preferred.
  • Adobe Illustrator or Affinity Designer source files for the logo
  • A color-pallete for high-contrast reading that degrades gracefully for color-blindness
  • A selection of fonts, with weights and sizes suitable for rendering on the web.

What Is The Budget?

Our budget is approximately $2,000 USD, with some wiggle room. This is an inception for a small business, so unfortunately there's not a huge budget.

I am comfortable paying for usage rights of fonts, ideally under $250 for a license that allows unlimited print and digital use.

To Apply

Email [email protected] a proposal with:

  1. Your portfolio.
  2. A set of questions that you would like answered about the work.
  3. Your timeline of availability.
  4. An approximate quote for the project.

Thank you! I look forward to working with you!
