Things have been quieter than usual on the JCD blogging scene so I thought I should let you know what I have been up to – here is a small showcase of my most recent work along with a brief summary on each.
One a similar note, I’ve just recently reached another milestone – I’ve now had a client from every continent of the globe, except Antarctica. This is something I never would have dreamed of 2 years ago when I started this blog and I find it amazing how small the Internet makes the world. Thank you for all your support and if you know a penguin, please do let me know.
Learnworks logo design – Learnworks provides on-site training, books and e-learning courses. The concept is based on the initials L and W making up books on a bookcase. Gotham Black is the typeface. Learnworks is based in the Netherlands and I am currently in the process of designing their other marketing material.
Redwave Systems logo design – Redwave is a provider of telephony systems, Windows servers, and general IT services. Notice the wave? Myriad Pro is the typeface with customisation on the D, W and A. Redwave Systems is based in California, USA.
Mindful Construct logo – Logo for a blog that focuses on empowering users to lead a more healthy life. Avenir LT Std 95 Black Oblique, 35 Light Oblique, 35 Light are the typefaces used. Melissa also kindly wrote a rather large testimonial for her time working with me – below is a snippet.
“Jacob is a pleasure to work with. He is courteous, patient with questions, reliable, and a great communicator. He is very focused on the creative process and he completed my project well before the deadline. And not only did Jacob deliver logos that I could emotionally connect to and identify with, he went out of his way to kindly advise me on how best to integrate one of the logos with my website.
Anyone who takes that extra care to help you succeed is someone worth sticking with! Jacob truly cares about his clients, and even though the project is finished, I still feel supported by him in continuing to build my business! :” Read full testimonial here.
DiCarlo Coaching logo – A male life coach, teaching men how to interact with women. Typeface is Avenir with custom illustrations for the silhouettes. DiCarlo Coaching is based in Massachusetts, USA.
Beolchi Rangel logo – This is a logotype for Beolchi Rangel, a business management consulting business based in Brazil. I wrote up a process of how I made this logotype over on Logo Designer Blog. Gotham Black typeface with customisation to the letters E, L and A. The letterhead and business card are being printed as we speak.
Matisia logo design – A Seattle based management consulting firm who deals with clients such as Microsoft & Starbucks. Typeface is Dynasty Heavy. The concept is based on profiling the fruit Matisia in which the business was named after. Matisia is based in Washington DC, USA.
Rehab Massage Website – This was a website I completed for Dennis Jablonski, a remedial therapist based in Queensland, Australia. The website is still currently being coded and the content added. The logo was designed elsewhere (not a huge fan).
Here is what Dennis said about his time working with me:
“Jacob absolutely nailed my website in his first draft, delivering a perfect result much faster than I expected!
When I contacted Jacob about designing my website I was highly unorganised, lacking vision, ideas and actual content – possibly a ‘designer’s nightmare’!
Jacob’s excellent communication skills and wealth of experience in dealing with small business clients meant he could quickly identify my needs and business image and provide much needed guidance with minimal fuss.
I consider myself very lucky to have met Jacob and highly recommend him!”
6x3m Billboard – This was a university project where we had to create a creative billboard targeting obesity. We had 2 hours to come up with a concept & deliver it. Man image courtesy of Shutterstock.
A3 Play Poster – This was an A3 sized poster for a play being held at Newcastle University.
Pip’s For Hair Logo Design – This was a logo I created last year for Pip’s For Hair – this is a photo of the logo applied to the store front. Typeface is Interstate with customisations to the two p’s.
As for now, there are 4 more logos in the mix, a website for Sikh Youth Australia, a van vehicle wrap design, a CD Digipack Album design and a rum liquor bottle on its way! And there is only 5 more weeks till I leave for a 6 week trip across 22 states of USA. Eek – but loving every bit of it.
Comments, constructive criticism and questions are welcome, as always. Have a good weekend folks!
