Hi All, First, I have TLC & CI, neither of which I've had any experience with beyond getting them back on my system after a full house-cleaning reformat/clean WinXP Pro reinstall recently. I've spent all my time lately split between turning and sculpting wood to pay the bills and creating my upscale, gallery-style web site to get re-launched PDQ. Hasn't left me much, if any time to this point to get a logo/brand designed. FYI, I also just got my Adobe CS3 Premium Extended upgrade in and installed, so I can convert to vector graphics in Illustrator, etc. All of that said... I make my living these days a professional woodturner/sculptor. My primary web site (there will be several spin-offs to accommodate my long-standing clients and to appeal to the niche new clients) is for my upscale, very high priced artistic hollow turnings and artistic boxes, etc. I've worked at creating my "flagship" web site with a virtual atmosphere equivalent to that of an exclusive brick 'n mortar upscale art gallery. My soon to be launched (within the next two weeks at latest, IF all goes well with final clean-up andtesting across the most popular browser platforms, etc.) web site is classy, clean and uncluttered, with the emphasis on my wood art with type as minimal and unobtrusive as possible, discrete built in shopping cart with flexible options suited to my type of one-off, custom art sales, etc. I was able to register several domain names which will allow me to have a thread of continuity, if you will, across all but one of the sites. The sites follow a one ... turn.com "theme", if you will, except for the one which will be the site I use for upscale pictorial e-book tutorials and education (most professional turners rarely make a living solely from wood art sales - it's partly the teaching demonstrations, tutorial DVDs, the branded turning tools, etc., and I'm no exception in this regard), that's the odd-fellow out, it has to be "theartofturningwood.com", breaking the "one ... turn.com" thread of continuity, but do-able, I think. I can visualize, sort of, using some kind of arrow, but darned if I can visualize where to go with it. I DO know I want my "flagship" logo, which I will modify for the other web sites (the first one is the aforementioned upscale, gallery-style "flagship" site, the other will be wholly dedicated to my precision scale miniature turnings which probably now constitutes almost 40% of my business orders, both for galleries and by private commission.) The third will be a more utilitarian site where less expensive wood turnings/sculpted wood, etc. will be offered - things like one-off turned mortars and pestles, turned and carved/textured and semi-precious metals and/or gemstone inlaid wood topped titanium and silicone wine or oil/vinegar bottle stoppers, sterling silver/gold fittings fountain and roller ball pens, one-off turned hollow wooden Christmas ornaments, turned wood bases for small hand-blown glass oil lamps, etc. I understand creative work doesn't come free, nor do I expect it to. I have put too much time and hard work into building the flagship web site not to launch with a discrete, upscale and first-rate logo/brand. I'm not sure how this works, except that I expect to pay a fair, going rate for a creative logo artist's time and effort. Thank you all in advance - I hope in my usual virtual verbosity I've provided enough info without over-doing it. Please let me know if I need to provide any further direct contact info, or if everything can be handled here in the forum. How we go about working out settling on a designer and time and cost of course, etc. Regards All, Debie :hangin: ...just one more turn!
