Reliable, attentive, accurate, but above all a very talented artist. He gave me the product I was searching for.
Very responsive designer who will read the brief in detail and also come up with many creative ideas - already the creator of two great logo designs that were the winners in two different logo contests of mine!
I'm very happy that Valerie joined my competition.
Three key strengths that made her stand out from the other designers:
- She came up with various design alternatives that were substantially different, rather than iterating on a single design
- She ignored some of the elements in my design brief that simply weren't that relevant to a good logo. This sounds counter-intuitive, but in doing so she could instead focus on the core of my brand and avoid diluting it with various design elements that I thought would be 'nice-to-have'
- When asked about her design choices, she provided a clear and comprehensive explanation, further demonstrating her talent as a designer.

WE ARE BUILDING WITH THE CITY OF SAN CLEMENTE IN THE MIDDLE OF A 35 Million DOLLAR SPORT PARK A 18 HOLE MINI GOLF COURSE PARADISE STYLE NO CLOWN OR CASTLES:) A ARTIFICIAL WAVE POOL AND RESTRAUNT CALLED "THE SURF 'N' TURF" WE HAD A LOCAL ARTIST ON STAFF WHO IS NO LONGER AND WANT TO KEEP THE SAME IDEA WITH A CIRCLE AND THE WAVES CRASHING BELOW WITH THE 19th HOLE PUTTING GREEN IN THE MIDDLE, I SKETCHED THE ORGINAL DESIGN AND WANT TO KEEP IT HE ADDED HIS STYLE WHICH WE WANT TO MAKE A LITTLE MORE NOT HIS I GUESS. BE THE NEW BRAND IN SURF 'N' TURF LOCATIONS WORLDWIDE, WE WOULD LIKE TO KEEP THE SAME CONCEPT THE NAME IS THE SAME THE ONE THING WE WANT TO CHANGE IS THE DESIGNER HE USED HIS FONTS AND HIS ACID 70'S STYLE WE WANT THAT TO GO AWAY.
Please keep in mind I like the current logo as I sketched the basic idea just not the Artist as he was just his own style but nailed the placement for the most part I just don't want him to feel it is his logo we have advertised The syle in the past another reason I don't want to change drastically but im open to ideas!
