Everyone knows that Steve Jobs was the marketing genius behind the Apple/Macintosh dynasty, but who was going to actually create the computer? He needed Steve Wozniak to make that dream a reality. Wozniak was the inventor, electronics engineer and programmer who, by himself, developed the first Apple computer in 1976. We can be a Wozniak to your Steve Jobs.
We offer several informative guides and helps, including a Complimentary Brainstorming Session to help you come up with a name for your company. And to help with your logo design we offer a free guide; Designing a Logo for Your New Business.
There are a couple of aspects to creating a great logo;
- You need to create a great logo that will represent you and your business well, and hopefully describe what product or service you provide.
- You need to make sure it works well with all of the embellishing processes such as screen-printing and embroidery. You may want it on a variety of items now and in the future, so you will want to avoid designs that will have technical and quality problems, or that will be expensive with some processes.
This guide covers both of these aspects.
