At Codestrat we develop complete visual branding strategies for a variety of industries, from corporate to creative and everything in between. By providing exceptional custom logo design, web development and graphic design we are able to establish an identity that tells a compelling visual story about your business. It often starts with the logo design, cultivating your look, feel and color palette. Then we take it to the next level with a custom website or e-commerce solution for a unique, clean and user-friendly web presence and experience. We also design print graphics for your collateral needs bringing a cohesiveness to all of your online and printed materials. Even if it’s not a logo design that you need or the the full monty of company branding, and all you require is one of our many stand alone design services like business cards, letterhead systems, invitations, banner ads, brochures or flyers, we’ll get the job done. And if for some reason we aren’t able to do what you need, we may have someone to refer you to… Because that’s how we roll!
CUSTOM LOGO DESIGN BRIEF: We begin with a phone conversation to get an overview of your company. We discuss goals, competitors and preferences; then we may ask you to fill out our online logo design questionnaire to cover some more detailed information.
INDUSTRY RESEARCH: We conduct focused research on your industry and request 3-5 example logos that you like and/or dislike to use as a reference point.
ADDITIONAL REFERENCE: We do additional research into color and font trends that may be related to your design brief and your specific industry.
CONCEPTUALIZING: Based on our research, we begin with rough comps and/or sketches of our concepts.
REFLECTION: We give it some time to marinate. It’s important to reflect on the first drafts for a little while. Sometimes it takes time for ideas to be fully realized.
REFINING COMPS: We revisit the comps for another pass before we submit them to you.
PRESENTATION: We present our ‘select’ 1-3 logos (depending on our agreement) to you for review.
REVISIONS: When you select your favorite logo (or combination of two), we move forward with it, revising and refining it until you are completely satisfied.
APPLY NEW LOGO TO IDENTITY PIECES: Now that you have a logo, if you require a website, business cards, letterhead or other collateral, we will start the design process.
