Logo Design for Small Business

Logo Design for Small Business

I have been doing graphic and web design for over 23 years, getting my start designing show posters for my own band and other bands in the Salt Lake City music scene. Of course, every band needs a cool logo, which subsequently led me to designing logos for individuals and small businesses. I have designed and deployed over 100 brand identities, brand names, company and corporate logos since I got into this business. And even after 10 year, more than 20 of them are still in use, an indication that their designs may be timeless. However, it seems like it's time for some fresh ideas.

Musicians as Website Hosts, Programmers, Designers, and Developers

People always ask me how I got started in this business. Well, it all started with music back in the early 90‘s. My little brother, Glen “Alex” Joel's band Mirror Mirror and my band Poink were performing live and recording under the Site 51 label. The Site 51 name is the birth-child of Alex and his wife Rachel Joel (seen in the photo above) and inspired by their enthusiasm for the paranormal, conspiracy theories, and "The X-files."

Website for a Psychologist - A Clean Design for a Piece of Mind

Dr. Peter Maduro, a client since 2004, finally accepted that his Flash site was no longer serving his online marketing needs. In preparation for building him a new site, I asked him to refer me to another psychologist website which had a design, layout and functionality that he felt could best represent him. His reference site turned out to be an excellent choice as a model for us to design his own new website.

A Quick Site for An Author

It's always a privilege when one client recommends another or when a client is inspired by a website that IAMTEEJAY has created. With new client and author, Alan Louis Kishbaugh, both those things happened.
