Since I’ve been specializing in WordPress website design and development, it’s a bit more rare that a logo design opportunity comes across my desk. So, when Cody from Cleveland Shave Shop approached me for a brand new identity, I could hardly wait to get started!
Cleveland Shave Shop is a boutique shaving supply web store based in Cleveland, OH. Run solo by a shaving fanatic, this fun shop is the product of a passionate guy who truly loves everything about what he does–he succeeds at making a boring, every day requirement into a fun task filled with amazing product options.
The first step in the design process with Cody, Cleveland Shave Shop’s owner, was having him fill out a quick logo design questionnaire. This ten or so question form covered design inspiration, a list of must-use colors, looked at competitor logos, his company’s background, etc. After gathering some necessary details, I was confident and ready to get this project fully underway!
The next step in my logo design process was the sketching phase, where I scribble out ten or so options–a personal requirement for every logo project, before I ever hit the computer.
Cody came to me seeking an elegant, yet retro-inspired logo for his brand new company, Cleveland Shave Shop. After much research, brainstorming, sketching, and a lot of time on the computer, the finished product was ready to be used across a wide array of marketing materials: business cards, website, stationery, t-shirts, and more!
