•DESIGN PROCESS – CREATING A LOGO •
This is an unusually long post for me. I’ve not posted for a few weeks as I’m awaiting clearance to reveal details one of my favourite jobs of this year. It was the creation of a cute little character, but for the moment it still remains under publicity wraps. So here’s a tidy graphic design job. More notes following the images ….

 The brief – to design a new logo for a packaging company. 
I’ve shown all the pre-final design ideas plus, following this text, you can see the chosen design in 3 formats.
Although most of my work these days is pure illustration I really do get a hell of a lot of satisfaction from graphic design work.

Okay so I got a little delayed, BUT commissions are finally open! I might have some other styles/options available later but for now let’s keep it simple. 

RATES AND RULES:

  • Bust (shoulders up): $30
  • Half (waist up): $50
  • Full: $70
  • BGs: $20+
  • Additional characters are 30% off of above prices
  • Prices are in USD
  • These commissions are for personal, non-commercial use ONLY. You may share and use it any way you like (for non-profit purpose), but please credit me when sharing online or anywhere else.
  • I’ll try to stick to the above prices, but they can vary if your request is particularly complex/simple. If you want smaller additions (like pets) or have anything beyond a standard portrait in mind we can discuss a price for it; again it depends on complexity.
  • Background price varies widely depending on complexity, but simple textured backgrounds are included free (see the last two images).
  • I’m good to draw humans, animals, fantasy creatures and everything in between, but no NSFW/offensive content please. I can refuse to accept any commission I’m not comfortable with doing.
  • If you request fanart/non-original characters I reserve the right to sell prints of it.
  • References are very helpful and encouraged, but not necessary. Please have a detailed description ready if you have no visual references.
  • Full payment is required upfront via Paypal. Before I move on to the final illustration I’ll show you a sketch for your approval.
  • Full refunds can only be given if I haven’t started your commission yet. 
  • Contact kerriaitken@gmail.com if you’re interested or have any questions! You can also check out the rest of my blog or my website at kerriaitken.com for more examples of my work.
