Client testimonial

Helen is a great illustrator. The cities she created for my website are fantastic and helped the design take off. Many times I wondered what was her secret. I think it’s the love for what she does. This makes the difference. Helen treated the particular challenge as if it was for her own website. There are many illustrators out there who can design well enough. But there are a few who care so much about your success. I call this professionalism.Yiannis Konstantakopoulos, Web designerporcupine.gr

Project description

Logo and icon design for an upcoming design related blog. The idea behind the icons was each one of them to visually represent the topics covered. Client’s favorite objects and shapes were used. Initially, we created a small art-board containing various shapes and objects and from there we picked the most representative ones. Icons were first designed in vector format and then scaled down to various bitmap versions. The logo had to be simple so simple shapes had to be used. We used a combination of a circle and an arrow. The circle represents the notion of “design” and the arrow makes this concept more specific.

Wireframe Plus logo

Project description

Thanos, owner of Wireframe plus approached me to design a logo for his new service. The core idea behind the whole concept was “Aviation”. We used elements from this sector to match the complexity and the skills required to convert a sketch (wireframe) to a fully fledged Photoshop mock-up.

Client testimonial

I asked Helen to help me with the logo for my, recently launched, service. She delivered a story. The story of how she got there including a remarkable logo that really stands out of the crowd. Once you get to agree with her, you won't go back for more just because she's insanely affordable. You just found another talented partner.Thanos Papavasiliouwireframeplus.com

    The process is simple. We first start by gathering all information necessary for your project. Depending on the type of the project, a small project questionnaire will be sent to you. A crystal clear understanding from my side is critical. Once all the details are finalized, a quote for the cost and estimated delivery date will be provided.

    Still with me? Great. Now let's move on to the interesting part. It's all about brainstorming, concepts and ideas. That's where we start from. Based on your project description, at this point we will try to set the main style, the colors, the generic look and feel. We are in a good way, aren't we?

    And now it's time to see some results. The part that you've been patiently waiting for. Is what you're looking at, the result you had in mind when you first submitted this form? I guess so. All files created will now be handed over to you. And don't forget, I will be around for minor tweaking if needed.
