Lucian's icon designs were spot on from the very beginning, professionally presented, and beyond all expectation. All communication was clear, timely, and friendly. Given the chance, I would definitely work with him again. A strong recommend!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Paislee.io is my personal technology brand that I use as a freelance software engineer, website designer, and blogger. My customers are companies that need custom software, websites, technical speaking or training. I am also active on web forums, and sites like GitHub and StackOverflow, where I use the pseudonym "paislee" . At the forefront of my personal brand will be my software blog at http://paislee.io, which is called "Paislee.io: A Tech Odyssey by Caleb Sotelo @paislee".
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I want a single icon that can be used for the following: (1) a branding image on my website, (2) a favicon, (3) printed onto a business card, and (4) an avatar image for all my online personas. The icon should be based on a paisley shape, and should have no text.
I've adopted the paisley shape into my online personal because it is a beautiful design element. It's often complex and precise on the inside, but simple and refined from the outside, like well-designed software. This is the idea I want the icon to convey.
The icon could have elements of technology, as implied by the title of my blog "Paislee.io: A Tech Odyssey by Caleb Sotelo @paislee".
On my blog paislee.io, the icon would reside above the title "paislee.io". The wilderness background image is only temporary.
