Some of the designers who made it happen

Winner - undrthespellofmars
Gabi is fabulous! She is very responsive and intuitive, not to mention talented. She gave me many options and through a bit of chatting and showing her my Pinterest page she "got me". I started with a logo design but I will also entrust my other branding needs (biz cards, FB page, Instagram & truck wrap). She is delightful to work with. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

How Irismonet started their banner ad journey

Organization name

DIY Decorating Guru

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

I have an interior design business that I am now targeting a niche market. I am going after the DIY crowd, the Lowes and Home Depot Crowd. I offer 2 hour blocks of consulting where I go in and they have a list of questions for me to answer. DIY clients love to shop and plan and do a lot of the work themselves, but need help with scale, pulling things together, reading plans, doing floorplans, advice on actual work, materials, etc. I provide answers to all of thier questions - regardless of topic. I have all areas covered - from construction, acrchitecture, colors, shopping, materials, resources, getting permitss and processes... etc. THEY HIRE A PROFESSIONAL JUST FOR THE QUESTIONS THAT THEY HAVE and do the rest themselves....

What industry do you think your business is most related to?

Architectural

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

I need the logo/design with my business name....

My business name is:

Here for you when you need a little expert advice

 I need something that stands out. I need it to stand apart from other designs. I need it to be recognizable. I need a statement piece. More than just playing with fonts. 

I want a banner type header/ad that I can put across my website,facebook, stationairy, etc. I want one theme and look for ALL of my items. So, my logo will come from this as well. But, I want my branding to cross over to many formats. This is the beginning and I will request more after this one.

My colors are either in the rich spice tones OR purple, red, saturated colors. 

I don't want it to be too kitchy. I have thought about using my own image. Either a graphic or real photo inset. I like it to be a bit feminine. I am including one example below that I really like the look of.  I don't want it to look too corporate, dark or stoggy. However, I am classy, sophisticated, creative and don't want it to be sexy. That is not my market. My target market is "Middle America". Mostly women and couples in their early thirties to late forties. 

I am going to upload a few photos of me so that you get a feel for what I look like.

Here are a couple that are appealing to me.

This person has a playful spirit. There are lots of different things that are playing with each other like the flower/chair that she is sitting on, the font is nice, colors are great!

This person has consistent branding with everything she does and that's the direction that I want to go

SINCE I JUST GOT AN EMAIL FROM SOMEONE OUTSIDE OF THE US... I thought that I would define DIY. DIY= Do it Yourself. It is a term used to describe homeowners that like to decorate or do construction projects on their own homes. They don't hire professionals. They like to do the work themselves. I hope that helps.....
