I’ve been designing business logos for over 25 years, for businesses of all sizes, and in a wide range of industries.
Professional Logo Design
A professional designed logo will put your business in a good light, garnering respect right out of the starting gate. I will develop a cost effective, distinctive logo design that let’s consumers and other businesses know that your company means business.
The goal is to design a memorable logo, not necessarily a complex logo. Some of the most memorable corporate logos are the most simple.
What Does a Custom Logo Design Cost?
A logo costs vary by designer, but ultimately the question is what is a great logo worth to you?
I don’t claim to be the lowest cost designer, and will not be competitive with starting designers and foreign services.
- Logos that are “lettering only” are $400.
- Logos that include a graphic start at $600. These logos are developed on an hourly basis, and your investment will depend upon several design factors, and how many design cycles before you approve the logo for final production.
- Logos of ‘average’ complexity developed with my multiple-concept design method average about $800.
- A logo with complex patterns or an illustration will run, roughly, twice as much as one with average complexity. On the upper end, I’ve designed logos where clients have invested $2,000.
My suggestion is for you to decide what you want to pay, and let me design under that budget. If, after that budget, you want some additional work to perfect it, we can agree on an extension.
If this is confusing, I can show you some logos at different price points so you can see what your investment will get you.
I can take one of two approaches:
- I can complete 2 or 3 logo designs for you to choose from, making final modifications to meet your desire, or
- I can brainstorm several concepts for your design, gradually eliminating and refining designs through a draft-and-review process with client comments.
The draft-and-review, multiple-phase design process allows the client more control over the end product, but can cost more. Of course, a hybrid method of design is also possible.
I want to design a logo that reflects your style!
Logo Design and Press Production
All logo designs include several file formats of the logo for you to send to vendors.
Standard sizes and formats include low resolution versions for the internet (72 dpi .gif or .png), small size and resolution (150 dpi .jpg), and large size high resolution (300 dpi .jpg or .tif). Most logos will also include a master version in .ai format, a vector format which allows unequalled resizing ability without loss of quality.
You will also get specifications of the fonts used (if not custom lettering) and colors for print and online.
I can develop logos in a variety of styles. If your traditional trademark needs a facelift, I love to revitalize older logos with updated colors, depth, simplification, or just re-styling to look more modern.
The logos I design can be for a multitude of uses: Corporate logos, small business logos, product or packaging logos, event logos, or personal logos.
They can be used for websites and media, print production, banners and signs, and more.
Get Started on Your Logo
I can usually begin work on your logo within 5 business days. Simple logos can be completed in days. More complex logos may take a week or more.
After we discuss your needs, I simply need a deposit of 50% of the anticipated total to get started.
I am located in Denver Colorado, however I do work for businesses in any location. Call 720-520-0639 to discuss your logo design.
Tempted to Use a Cheap Logo Service?
I have to admit, $99 for a logo with a foreign online-only logo factory is very tempting. But don’t fall for those too-good-to-be-true offers.
I’ve helped clients who used those services fix their logos afterwards.
They experienced poor design, foreign colors, lots of tedious back and forth fixing and re-fixing (what is your time worth?), and bad line-integrity (such as choppy curves)!
And worse, you could potentially get a design that many other companies have!
Yes, I’ve seen it personally.
Those foreigners don’t care if they send the same logo designs to businesses in dozens of different countries. In fact, that is the main way they give you a cheap logo.
They produce a logo once and sell it 100 times!
You truly get what you pay for in those cases. And beware, if a company has copyright protected their logo and you use it, you may have to reprint all of your materials when you receive a “cease and desist order”.
That’s a pretty high cost for trying to save a few dollars!
