Here are some print design pieces I have created for Jenny Bedard Photography. She is an excellent photographer and in exchange for design work, my husband and I got a photography session! I just love her work!
All in all, I designed a business card, mini moo card, reception card and tightened up her lovely existing logo as well.
Here is a sampling of photographs Jenny Bedard took of Grant and I in return.
Ben Karnes, Waconia High School’s police officer, approached me one day about a design for his nonprofit S.A.F.E.R started with Mario Cortolezzis. They created the nonprofit out of the need for finding loved ones – children and adults – with special needs. In the case of these loved ones wandering off, S.A.F.E.R provides wrist/ankle bands that can be tracked. They give peace of mind and also provide classes for general safety. They have been featured in Minnesota news several times and are expanding the S.A.F.E.R program community by community.
My Commercial Art students tried out some designs near the end of the trimester, but didn’t nearly have enough time to create a finalized logo. So in lieu of time, I decided to try a couple logos out myself and see if one stuck. Ben suggested having a logo with a heart of some sort, and I added in the radiating beams to signify their search and find process using radio frequencies and radio towers. I was proud to have been a part of the process and to have worked for such a great cause.
Logo designs created recently for Pathway Labor Service and Nicole Lenzen Photography – both Minnesota based companies.

General Process for Logo Design:
Your Goals and Ideals:
A discussion about the client’s business goals and audience with graphic designer. Any suggestions on color or other logos the client likes are always helpful. The number of colors also needs to be decided upon. Most businesses should have a 1 color logo for faxing and other print pieces or a logo that will look good on a black background and a white background. If the logo is for a website it can have unlimited colors but should still have a 1-3 color option.
3 Different Design Comps:
I supply 3 different logos for the client to choose from and make comments on. Typically we want to narrow down to one of these designs.
Winning Logo Revisions 1:
Taking client suggestions to create the final logo.
Winning Logo Revisions 2 – Creating Finalized logo:
After first suggestions are taken into account, the client has one more opportunity to make any final revisions.
Finalized Logo Files:
I supply the client with finalized logo in original design files (ai) and jpg/png/gif/psd (depending on needs of company) files of various sizes for the company to use on big to small projects.
