Design a logo and business card for an independent communications consultant
Nell told me her story about starting her own marketing and communications consulting business and asked me to design her logo. Then she hit me with the name: Kahuna! And mentioned that she wanted a deer represented in the logo (any other hunters call their target “The Big Kahuna?”). Hm, this was a new one, and I proudly accepted the challenge. I love a good challenge! I felt her out for style and color and thankfully, she wasn’t thinking camouflage, but instead preferred simplistic, modern and on trend. So, after some sketching and tweaking, the antlers became the “U” and the colors were representative of a bright day outdoors.
We brought the full faded deer silhouette into her business cards and we were very excited about how everything turned out.
“I will be using Nicki as a designer again. That is a guarantee. I asked her to design logo for my business with a modern look, though had some very specific requests as to the type of imagery I was interested in to tie in with my company name. In the wrong hands, the result could have been hokey or unprofessional, but Nicki seemed to intuitively know exactly what I was looking for, and asked the perfect clarifying questions. She made me feel understood, expressed enthusiasm for the work, and was a joy to communicate with. She presented me with five designs that were spot on, and I had a hard time deciding between them. I’m extremely grateful for her creative mind!”
