One (1) Hour Logo starting at $100 Portfolio Sampler


I began developing the concept of "One (1) Hour Logo for Tacomanians" with an experiment on myself... with the revamp of the Holistic Forge Works "flying turtle" logo...

Yes, with my new 1 Hour logo for Tacomanians service I can also enhance your existing logo to brand your original spin-off business services! Below is an example of the HFW turtle logo used to brand my original SURPLUS TACOMIC PENCIL ART stamped for authenticity!

Logo from a personal community culture project: Central Tacoma Free-Radical Media Exchange. At this point I felt confident enough with my speed and skill to begin offering my logo making services to the public.  ONE HOUR LOGO FOR TACOMANIANS is born!

I began to advertise this service on social media sites. My old boss would say: "twitter, facebook?  Who cares about what I just ate or when I go to the bathroom! [har har har]."  an absolute shocking display of ignorance! To be an evangelical marketer, you have to go where the people are!  Posting my logo progress with my friends online, word of mouth spread and I soon had my first One Hour Logo for Tacomanians customer...  Professor Andrew Fry at UW Tacoma for his South Sound Entrepreneurs Weekend conference...

How Does One Hour, $100 Logo for Tacomanians work?

If you go with the rock-bottom flat $100 dollar logo option, you get to provide some brief creative input/direction at the very beginning... examples of what you like, maybe you provide a sketch, maybe you just want something to look good and that is all that matters to you.  I spend 1 hour and whatever I come up with in that 1 hour is your $100 logo!   No revisions. No refunds.  If you are unhappy with your 1 hour logo simply spend another $100 for another shot. 

$100 for a logo is a heck of a deal.  

Now, you might want to have design revisions--for an extra premium, you can!

Here is an example of a button logo I did for my sister-in-law's at risk youth program.  I came up with 3 different design options with upto 3 design revisions... They were willing to shell out the extra cash and felt good about it in the long run.

No Job is Too Weird or Strange!  Terra Organics wanted a superhero illustrated for their new fleet of delivery vans...  again many revisions, many hours over the starting $100 price.  Let's work a deal! 

Different Chairs wanted to see a fun, cartoony new logo and paid a little extra for some different options to choose from... this is the end result.  As a courtesy I like to provide the finished logo design with the standard 3 color choice alternatives..  Black on White, White on Black... and Color. 

Death by Stars is a local electronic rock band who are fans of my Tacomic cartoon... I did this T-Shirt logo for them, not a 1 hour logo but as a trade for theme music for a youtube show (in development)

Did you know you can combine 1 hour service with my $1000 website package?  Here is the first draft of a logo revamp...  you can see an example of an unrelated website I recently built from scratch.

I design T-shirts too!

Or maybe you need spot illustrations to jazz up your website?  Here is an example I did for AFX before I got laid off (I can do all of this stuff also).

Speaking of Illustration work, Here is a recent full-color illustration I did for this Tacoma Makes project, you probably saw their press?  Pretty dang impressive for a Tacoma-based Kickstarter project. (keep an eye out for Britton and Chandler's work too, it's fantastic)

Last but not least a ULTRA-PURE example of the 100 dollar / 1 hour logo.  Chris owner of The Red Hot has been watching my progress and wanted to get a fresh sticker/logo for his growler bottles.  "I want your take on the MM Bridge with our existing logo. It has to be round and I'd like it to say In Beautiful Tacoma, WASH"  He directed, and thus...

after he posted it to his facebook wall folks were crying for this design on T-shirts. He said he'd send me a sample of whatever it gets printed on (hopefully filled with drink).  AWESOME!

Great job on the SSEW logo.  Soon to be seen on the T-shirts at the event.  Let me know what size you want so I can get you one.

by KevinFreitas on 8/14/2012 @ 11:08am
Yeah, that Red Hot growler sticker/t-shirt is great. Nice work RR! Great way to price things too since it's also easy for clients to grasp. If they want changes they're already setup to expect $100/hr but, if they're clear and you are on point, they can get a great deal for a finished product.

Is your artwork made in the U.S. or subcontracted to shops in India? I'm not interested in an off-shore production, even if most of the profits go to you.
