Thanks for a great job, we love the design.
A quick turn around and excellent communications.
Amazing that’s for your work
Sacramento.michael interpreted my brief (an app icon) and perfectly captured how we wanted to visually represent the app.
Excellent Designer !

How eliza.carbines started their icon or button journey
Who are you known as?
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Tiply is an online, social media, podcast and video sharing platform aimed at 18 - 30 year old Australians. We explain, in straight talk, everything that should be taught in school, but isn't.
Our topics cover everything from static categories such as how to buy a house, what superannuation is, what medicare is, where money comes from, how to understand tax, etc. Through to topical categories such as, what is a plebiscite, How to vote in an election, new laws that have been passed and updates on any of the static posts.
We are not an advice column, nor do we get bogged down in difficult detail or industry terminology. We simply lay out the facts to educate our audience in a way that makes these topics interesting to read in super simple talk.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I need a website icon to represent the business. We have done no other branding or design at all, this icon is quite literally the very first piece of imagery which will be designed for our brand.
We do not have font or colour schemes within which you need to work.
This icon will become the base from which all other branding is built so please keep in mind that the colours and styles chosen will need to translate across all other brand logos and themes.
Speaking of logo's, I also need a formal TIPLY logo created - I understand this is separate to the icon however I'd like to use the same designer for all the work associated with this business. Can a brand logo please be done at the same time.
The name TIPLY was created mainly because it's easy to say and spell - both important features of a business name. But it is loosely connected to information often being referred to as 'tips' and the saying to have something 'at the tip of your fingers'.
Our information is easy access, easy to read and easy to understand. It is not gimmicky but is also not something you would find in the depths of the Financial Review Newspaper (i.e. stuffy, boring and difficult to digest). We are, without fault, always factually correct and our priority is firm integrity within the information we are spreading. Our writing style is very casual with a hint of comedy but always with valuable information at our core.
Our brand is fresh, young, casual and highly educated.
The icon needs to be pictorial only, as it will be used as the website icon.
The logo needs to be focused on the word TIPLY, I do not have a preference at this stage whether the iconography is included in the logo and am happy to see options for a logo which uses only the word and options which use both the word and imagery.
Beyond the requirements above our website, which is live (but really shouldn't be), needs to be completed. A proper style and header for the site needs to be created. Fonts and colour's need to be selected, a brand style guide needs to be created and various other items as they are required.
I intend to engage the same designer ongoing, please only respond to my current request if you are in a position to and have a desire to be involved in this project long term.
I understand that we really are starting from scratch here and I've not given many specific parameters for you to work within, I am not a creative person myself, I only know what I need and am most happy to take your suggestions and input throughout the consult stage. Looking for a partner who can offer advice just as much as execute instructions.
