Great to work with, very patient. I got sick near the end of the job and was traveling internationally but was still able to work with them to get everything our company needed. Would definitely recommend.

The name "Double Black Diamond Coaching" comes from the symbol from skiing that marks very difficult terrain. I would like the image of two diamonds used in the design, similar to the current business card. They likely need to be black, given the name and origin of the symbol, but you could see how they look in the purple. If you google "double black diamond symbol/skiing" you will see how it looks on signs at ski resorts to see where the metaphor comes from. If I consider the current logo, I think the use of the symbol is OK, interesting because it is not as severe as what appears on ski signs. I think the choice of type face needs updating badly. Way too small for one, and not big on the face any more.
You can also visit my existing website to see how it has been used in the past: http://www.doubleblackdiamondcoaching.com and to understand our business better. The website is currently being significantly updated, and converted to wordpress. I have attached the latest mock-ups to show you where its heading. (Ignore the logo in place at the moment - that's just a place holder that the web guy came up with while this contest is going on! )
Thanks! I really look forward to seeing the submissions.
