Can I have access to my logo?

Graphic design companies have different policies about giving clients access to their logo. At Design Sense Graphics & Web, we believe it is important for you to have your logo to use. We will supply the logo in a range of formats, either via email or on a disk. You will be able to place this into stationery and documents as required. HOWEVER, we do ask that you follow the guidelines provided on this website (or in your company style guide where applicable) for the use of your logo, in order that the integrity of your logo and its design is not compromised. It is recommended that you engage us to design important promotional items for you, to ensure consistent application at all times.

How much does a website cost?

There are many solutions available today for getting a website for your business or organisation. These can range from free sites that you create yourself, to complicated multi-page database powered sites that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to get up & running. Unfortunately there is no 'standard' across the web development industry that dictates how much a website should cost, or what you will receive for your money.

Avoid the cheap & nasty

With so many free options out there, you may ask 'what's the point of using a professional?' Ultimately, if you want a quality website that looks great, is original, consistent with your organisation's branding, AND works well, then you will have to pay for it. There are so many factors that work together to make a website successful - some of which you may not even be aware of, or more importantly, have control over if you use a free website tool. You will save yourself time, money and stress in the long run if you leave the details up to a reputable company such as Design Sense Graphics & Web.

A guide to using your Logo correctly

Using your logo correctly on all media not only helps trigger an immediate visual association with you, but it also reinforces credibility of the items on which it appears. Consistency of usage is therefore important. Your logo should be used consistently and correctly in advertising and promotional materials, publications, web sites and software interfaces, presentations, stationery, etc. whether in print or electronic media.

Logo Quality

Your logo should never look 'pixelated' or blurry. Don't use scanned versions or photocopies of the logo. Never use a logo from a website in print media because they are low resolution and will print poorly. For printed material, supplying your logo in EPS* format is important as this ensures superior reproduction of your logo.

Where do I start? Logo preparation & the process involved

It is a good idea to put some thought into your logo before you meet with us at Design Sense Graphics & Web. We will cover the following areas when we meet with you to discuss your logo design.

Business Name
Most people have already decided on a name and registered it before they come to us. However, we are also able to assist you to be a bit more creative with your name if you need some help. Below are a couple of examples where clients have had a name in mind, and we have suggested an alternative that has been a much better option. 'Effie's Beaded Bits' became 'Beadistinctive' and 'Gold Dust Spas' became 'SpaKal'. It is very important to get your name right before the design process begins - it's much harder to change it down the track.
