How Michael M. Grant started their logo & business card journey
Who are you known as?
Michael M. Grant Voiceover, LLC
What’s your company slogan?
Logo needs to somehow communicate "Warm, wise storyteller" but those words don't necessarily have to be IN the logo. They can be elsewhere on the b-card.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am a voice actor. I narrate documentaries for TV, commercial (advertising) projects, corporate work, explainer videos, e-books (not audiobooks), medical projects, political ads, etc.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What colors do you want to see in your design?
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
The colors are nice (99 Designs would not let me add the blue palette to the others I chose but I like it, too. The logo is suggestive of what the company hopes to do: lift the emotions of its audience.
Very classy, fine lines, would look great as an embossure/debossure. Tag line says "Relaxed, Fun, Radiant". This logo does not communicate either "Relaxed" or "Fun"--so, in some ways, not a good logo for this company.
Logo describes what the company does (house with thinset plaster lines created by plaster trowel on it). Font is a classic one, a stonecutter's font. Clean lines, simple yet elegant.
Classic font that has been modified slightly, simple graphic, would be super as a foil stamped logo. Elegant and classy look overall.
Nice font, more modern, sans serif but it fits the logo. Like the use of red only as the color (not because of red but because there is only one color)--it draws the eye to the logo. Clean logo.
Clean, crisp, nice font selection, logo clearly is very related to nature of business.
More modern font is appropriate, like the use of bold for "carrier". Carrier pigeon logo relates to name of company and digitization of pigeon body is a cool effect.
Go to my website http://www.michaelmgrant.com and listen to my demos and read about me. The more you understand what I do and who I am, the better you will do in crafting a logo and design for me. I do not like my current website home page above the fold but I have to live with it for now. So don't get into a "mental set" with that webpage limiting you. I need to communicate that I am: (1) professional and (2) need to do so in a way that somehow communicates "warm, wise storyteller". For the logo: no microphones, headphones, mic stands, script stands, audio file waveforms, images of books, etc. Those are WAY overused by other voiceover talent.
