This design was for a vacation rental and future B&B that we are intending to use as a flagship brand logo for other possible ventures (including food products). The look needed to be both quaint but with touches of sophistication that would appeal to more urban, upscale audiences who we are trying to attract to this space. It needed to thread the needle between various moods. GiaKenza did a wonderful job, creating different 'looks' for our logo, including versions which featured our building, and text-only versions which did not. This helped us to come closer to finding what we needed to envision our own brand and its various uses, something which the other - very talented designers - did not do. It was this insight - that we didn't have ourselves - which set Gia apart from the others and helped us achieve the look we were striving for. Once he had won the commission, he was very responsive and helped us get the files we needed, and make small tweaks to the deliverables, as we worked with our printer. I'm so grateful - excellent work. I strongly recommend and endorse this designer. Many thanks! -chris bennem, proprietor Glen Hollow

Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Skanks United is an apparel company that will appeal to snowboarders, surfers and to some extent, extreme sports enthusiasts and those that aspire to be a part of these communities. The brand is meant to be more ironic than raunchy. The brand is hip but subtle, more mature than brash. It is edgy but not obnoxious.

Here again, we see the irony of the name Skanks United as critical. Its not meant to be offensive or trashy, but edgy and subtly funny. We see "skank" as being something of a "brother and sisterhood" similar to a trade union. Imagine the logo being on sticker on a snowboard. The slogan is "Not Easy, Being Easy" could be included but it is not critical. We like the brand Hot Tuna Surfwear.
