Here is a recent logo design for a local property surveyor on the Isle of Wight.
Hayden requested that The logo did not appear to be unique to the Isle of wight as he wanted to appeal to clients on the mainland too. I always start with colour, mainly because its my favourite part of designing a logo. Colour is so important in representing your field of expertise. Having looked at all of Haydens competition, locally and nationally I settled on a sensible blue, but for a nautical hint the addition of a touch of red seems to add a coastal feel.
