  • 5/5 stars Logo Design Verified Review

    Our business found Carl on Thumbtack, and we've been delighted with our choice. Carl has been responsive, creative, and professional, and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with him. We now have a great new logo, and are working with him on refreshing our marketing materials and business cards. We highly recommend him!

  • 5/5 stars

    Carl did 3 or 4 projects for AVID Technical Resources, all impeccably and speedily executed. The projects included some alterations/additions to our website and giving us a new high res rendering of our logo.

    Carl is fantastic at what he does and incredibly honest and pleasant to work with. I'd trust him with any design or web project!

    Thanks again Carl !!

    I have to say what a pleasure it has been working with you on my logo design. From the moment you first responded to the "final cut" this has been a fun, easy and productive collaboration. Conceptually you were spot on with what I hoped to capture for my brand.

    Your insight was so good in fact, that I ended up with more options than I'd anticipated...the hardest thing was to choose between the options, which as you know, I couldn't !

    Fortunate for me though, because I come away with variations on my theme, which I think will be very useful depending upon the situation; the value couldn't have been better.

    As I move forward with the development of other materials, I certainly plan to call on you again !

    Carl was prompt, responsive, affordable, and most importantly he provided a very elegant and attractive design for my corporate identity and business cards. I will absolutely be working with Carl in the future for additional identity materials.

    Carl designed the artwork for my Political advertising in the 2011 city elections in Malden, MA. All the other candidates remarked that it was the best they saw.

Question and answer

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. Pricing is typically pretty straight forward, and done per project. An estimate on the initial scope is provided, and will detail out how many hours the project will be and how many revisions are allowed under the agreement. Anything beyond the scope of the project might incur additional hours and charges, but this will be discussed before delving further in.

Additional costs incurred might include printing, licensing images and fonts, or hosting for a web site, these are separate from the design fee.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I enjoy art, as it's one of the main challenges I had in growing up. Academics came easy, so they were relatively boring, I wanted something different, perhaps daring...a career in art can be a risky proposition...but also one of the most rewarding. After a degree, and some measure of success, I've come to love my career choice.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Logo design, direct mail pieces, newsletters, email marketing, web sites, vector illustration, brochures, and print brokering.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Ask for a quote before starting work, also have content prepared if the project is a mail piece, website, or other marketing piece. The more the designer needs to come back to the client seeking assets for the finished project, the more they have in billable meeting time rather than time spent desiging.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. Logos should almost always be vector images, good design sense is consistent between print and web design, and just because your niece or nephew has a pirated copy of Photoshop doesn't mean they can replace a trained designer.
