When starting a business it’s no surprise that money is tight. One hopes that they are making the right decision about what to spend time and money on. For JBtuned.com we knew that branding was a big deal and that having a logo and marketing that we were proud to stand behind was very important. The problem was that when faced with the decision between purchasing inventory or having professional marketing done, inventory always wins.
Once we reached a point where we decided the basic font logo was no longer cutting it for us, we started the hunt. I can’t tell you how many designers I contacted and portfolios I looked through. It was endless and worst of all, I kept feeling like I was settling for something. Nothing ever stood out and just grab my attention or gave me the “Thats it!!!” moment. Months went by and honestly, I gave up. I started looking into how to improve the print quality of our current logo for some thank you flyers we were adding into our Ebay shipments and I stumbled upon a portfolio of work. The “Thats it” finally happened. I had to go through a few different sites to find contact information but I finally sent off the email.
I was always nervous about hiring someone to do work for JBtuned. How could someone possibly capture what we are and what we do? Especially if they are not into what we do. I got the email back and decided to go for it. After All, I tune cars, I don’t really know anything about design. I gave some input for design intent/hopes of what I wanted the logo to do/mean and finished the email with “I like red”
The man on the other end of the email was Dalibor Momchilovic. I really cannot speak enough about how great he made this experience for us. We got so much more than what we paid for and the guy nailed it the first time. No edits needed. Additionally, The whole process was so painless and exciting. He emailed me after the initial deposit to let me know that everything was ok and we would start working right away. Overall it took a little less than a week for the whole experience. We have since contacted him to continue creating fantastic work for us in the way of business cards, banners, etc.
I have added his contact information below the design if anyone if interested in having work done. Hope you like it has much as I have.
