How Surfbull started their logo design journey

Company name

SHOCKOE CONSTRUCTION

Overview

I WAS IN THE OIL DISTRIBUTION BIZ FOR MOST OF MY LIFE AND SOLD MY BUSINESS IN 2001. STARTED A CONTRACTING BUSINESS IN 2004 WORKING ON RESIDENTIAL HOMES AND INVESTMENT PROPERTY. BEGAN MOVING TO COMMERCIAL WORK 2 YEARS AGO. ALTHOUGH I REMODEL HOMES AND AM A GENERAL CONTRACTOR, MY EMPHASIS IS ON COMMERCIAL BUILDOUTS ( TENANTS FOR RETAIL MALLS OR SHOPPING CENTERS) WHICH INVOLVES BUILDING WALLS, CEILINGS, PLUMBING AND ELECTRICIAL WORK; I AM A VERY SMALL CONTRACTOR WITH LESS THAN 1 MILLION IN ANNUAL REVENUES; I AM GROWING, FINALLY, AND FEEL I AM IN A POSITION TO INCREASE MY SALES OVER THE COMING MONTHS AND YEARS, THUS THE NAME CHANGE AND NEW LOOK. MY OLD COMPANY NAME IS PM CONTRACTORS, WHICH I HAVE BEEN TOLD IS BORING, BUT I LIKE THE BLUE AND GREEN COLORS. I WILL ATTACH A COLOR LOGO FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

TARGET IS REAL ESTATE COMPANIES THAT MANAGE PROPERTIES; LARGER CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES NEEDING SUB CONTRACTORS; RETAIL STORE OWNERS NEEDING REMODELS OR NEW BUILD OUTS;

Requirements

I LIKE SIMPLE AND CLEAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE ATTACHED A FEW PATHETIC IDEAS OF MINE TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW SIMPLE I WANT THIS LOGO TO BE. CONSERVATIVE, NOT ABSTRACT. THE " LL " WAS TO TRY AND GET MY INITIALS IN THE LOGO.....DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.

SHOCKOE IS NAMED FROM A CREEK THAT ONCE FLOWED THROUGH DOWNTOWN RICHMOND VA, "SHACQUOHOCAN" CREEK. THIS IS AN INDIAN NAME FOR "LARGE, FLAT STONES AT THE MOUTH OF THE CREEK".

IT MIGHT BE NEAT TO INCORPORATE A CREEK WITH FLAT STONES IN THE LOGO, AS LONG AS IT DOES NOT TAKE AWAY FROM THE LOGO, AND DOES NOT MAKE THE LOGO "BUSY". IF IT DOES, I'D RATHER LEAVE IT OUT. IF YOU CAN MAKE IT WORK, HAVE IT SEPARATE FROM THE WORDS IN CASE I WANT TO USE THE LOGO PART SEPARATE FROM THE WORDS.

PLEASE NO TOOLS, HARDHATS, EQUIPMENT ETC. THAT MAKE ME LOOK SMALL TIME OR CHEESY.

ALSO WOULD NEED ORIGINAL SOURCE FILES DELIVERED BY THE WINNER. I THINK THIS IS WHAT I WILL NEED TO PRINT FOR LETTERHEAD, BIZ CARDS, WEBSITE, OR EVEN FOR A CLOTHING LOGO ARTWORK.

SHOCKOE IS A VERY OLD AND HISTORIC NAME IN RICHMOND, SO KEEP THAT IN MIND.

LIKE THE GREEN AND BLUE IN MY ATTACHED PM CONTRACTORS LOGO. I THINK THE COLORS ARE : LIME 381 NAVY BLUE 294 PMS(?) IF THAT MAKES SENSE.
