Walk Electrical

This logo was a pleasant surprise to create… after a heap of brainstorming and experimentation with different concepts, this concept just revealed itself and the client loved it.

What I love about this logo is it’s subliminal repetition of electricity waves, the rhythm created to give a sense of walking (not to mention a zebra crossing) and the safety message that should be associated with electricity.

This logo is also quite simple and bold which is suitable to communicate a trade to the general population as it can be reproduced clearly throughout relevant media, such as business stationery, uniforms and especially exploded on the side of a utility van.

For those that are interested this is the typical psyborg® process we use to create such a logo;

  1. Client completes Logo Design questionnaire which helps us to understand the business and brand discovery
  2. psyborg® interprets brief and research on potential brand positioning
  3. psyborg® brainstorming on unique ideas and concepts
  4. psyborg® thumbnail sketches and idea generation
  5. psyborg® shortlisting of ideas including potential slogans or tag lines to complement the logo design
  6. psyborg® pencil sketches, digital illustration and typographic design into a minimum of 3 design concepts
  7. psyborg® present a minimum of 3 concepts to client in full colour, in high contrast (on light colours) and low contrast (on dark colours)
  8. psyborg® works with client to either refine logos presented or develop new concepts based on feedback
  9. Once logo is approved prepare all logo types in EPS, PDF & Hi & Lo Res Jpeg
  10. Client owns copyright of logo finally designed

Here’s an update on some of the psyborg® design work & developments over the past few months.

Mac Attack

We’ve been busy going all Mac in the studio. For some time I had a mixture of PCs and Macs running, but now with iOS8 set to launch soon I have set up the studio with two new iMacs (psyMacs), which integrate nicely with my iPad (psyPad) and iPhone (psyPhone).

Now that we’re paperless we’re starting to leverage the cloud even more with some exciting developments on the horizon. One thing I have learned with business automation and leveraging the cloud is that you need to get all of your ducks (or devices) in a row to create the synergy required to run an agile business.

Keeping Your WordPress Website Up to Date

For most of my website clients I maintain their WordPress dashboard. This is necessary so that it stays up to date with the latest evolution of WordPress, latest plugins and latest theme files. This usually occurs bimonthly. Check out my latest psyblog article explaining the steps that I take.

What is WordPress?

For those who don’t know WordPress is one of the most popular Content Management Systems (CMS) available, enabling web publishers to take control over their content. I have been designing and developing WordPress websites for over five years now completing more than 75 website projects on this platform.

Here is a small list of some of my most recent website project completions;

Mobler Design

Mobler Design lets you customise architect-designed furniture before you purchase it.

Conversant Media

We recently went live with Conversant Media’s new website showcasing it’s successful online publications and business approach.

ScooterHub

Newcastle now has a Scooter Hire service where you can book a scooter online. In close consultation with my client we also developed ScooterHubs’ brand, print materials & vehicle signage.

Bend + Mend

Bend + Mend is a physiotherapist with four clinics located in the Sydney CBD. I worked closely with Bend + Mend to customise their WordPress theme to reflect the organisation’s professionalism and personality.

Hamilton Loan Office

With pawn shops being all the rage now with the success of some U.S. TV programs Hamilton Loan Office thought it was time to go online and begin communicating there business to the world.

Branding, Print and Signage

I’ve also completed a heap of logos, printed campaigns and signage projects over the past few months that you can get a glimpse of over at my Facebook feed.

That’s it for now, thanks for reading.
