George was exceptionally insightful, very professional and offered great recommendations and most importantly a beautiful and clean logo to specs. He went above and beyond and most definitely exceeded our expectations. We hope to work with him on future projects.

How R Berggren started their logo design journey

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
During the Spring of 2013, nearly 51,000 high school students and their robots will compete at 77 Regional and District FIRST Robotics Competitions worldwide. The FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition is an annual competition that challenges high-school students – working alongside professional Mentors – to design and build a robot of their own, and compete in a ‘Sport for the Mind’ that measures the effectiveness of each robot, the power of teamwork and collaboration.
"FIRST California" is the brand we are working to build. FIRST Robotics is a worldwide program in it's 22nd year and already has an established logo and widely recognized worldwide identity, but this is the first year that we are focusing on uniting almost 1,800 FIRST Teams in California - as "FIRST California" - to show our solidarity as future science and technology leaders in our great Golden State.
Our goal with this logo is to add to the existing FIRST logo and add a bit of California flavor - fun and vibrant. We are fond of sun or waves, but these are not required in the design. We like blue - think ocean. If you can think of something more clever, cool and appealing to creative and smart high school kids - go for it!
