Olga did a great job for us. She took direction very well and really understood what we were looking for. We'll be happy to work with her again.
Needed a newsletter header and they did a great job.
You're the best. Thanks for the quick turn around.

HELIX - Managed WordPress Hosting
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
HELIX hosts and automatically manages WordPress websites. Our target audience compromises small/mid-sized business that value their websites as important digital assets that deserve attention, and smaller design studios/agencies that provide web design services and want a reliable hosting partner that keeps them out of the technical stuff while keeping their clients happy.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
HELIX is a badass robot (well, a software robot) that turns WordPress sites into alarmingly fast, highly reliably, attack-proof juggernauts. We need a badass robot icon to represent him. That icon will essentially also become the HELIX logo so it needs to scale.
We need FLAT, SIMPLE and ICONIC. This is not a comic book character.
Think about the Cylon Centurions from the Battlestar Galactica reboot. That kinda badass. The robot icon/logo will appear on our website, and will be used in our social media and email marketing campaigns. We're putting out an industrial, military, vibe here, so we're working in black, white and grey scales.
You can see the pre-launch version of our website at http://iamhelix.com to get an idea of our vibe. I'm attaching the placeholder icon we've been using and a few other visuals that should help get the point across. Bonus points for using cues like a spartan helmet in your design.
