We love our new logo. Victoria was great to work with - she responded promptly to all of our feedback and was very adaptable. Her designs look professional and unique.
- Brand Hero
Brand Hero came up with the most original design following my brief. This designer was quick, and professional. I would love to work with him again in the future!
- Nathan Garrett
Nathan was a pleasure to work with. He has great design skills and excellent communication skills. He jumped right in and was the first one to submit a design which put him ahead of the pack. He made every revision we asked for (mostly font changes) and then some, and he responded quickly and professionally each and every time. A job well done, Nathan!

My idea is to play off the concept of "seasoned" -- I have 25 years in the business -- plus I will be using words to "season" my clients' message. I chose green and orange because they are the colors of herbs and spices. One image would be fingers (more suggestive than literal) sprinkling over the company name -- Seasoned With Words -- and the tagline, Creative Writing for Business. I would like the look to be clean and hip yet also bold and clear to the viewer. This has to work on the biz cards as well, of course. So no clutter -- I'd like a good amount of white space. I already have a website -- rebeccarfairfaxclay.com -- which I created myself about three years ago and will take down once this new one is up, but I do want to transfer some of the media content.
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the logo and hosted website?
I don't see a template here that would work for me. I'd like my site to be elegant and somewhat spare -- I'm not crazy about these big rectangular photos and blocks of text. The templates look pretty generic and boring, to be honest. I'd like a look where the concepts of seasoning (aromas, flavor), words (powerful and important), creative (not just run-of-the-mill writing) plus big and small business somehow woven in. I also write for sound and video/TV so don't know if there's a way to subtly add these elements without creating clutter. The logo and website should be bold but not overdone.
Photos and/or original designs welcome. Same colors as with logo also welcome.
Homepage: Description of services, list of clients, a funny story or quote, for example. Links to writing samples (magazines, newspapers, children's books, radio pieces and videos) plus a blog. Small photo of me with short bio. Please consult rebeccafairfaxclay.com to see how those pages look. My current site is cluttered, disjointed and confusing to the visitor, however, and that is why I need a whole new look plus new writing. I will rewrite the copy to play off the concepts (without overdoing it) and to be much more clear about the services I offer.
