|| BRANDING + IDENTITY
If you have a small business and want to make yourself known, I can help you stand out! I have made numerous logos for small businesses, alongside social media graphics and sticker designs.
|| PRINT DESIGN
If you have a big event coming up and need an eye-catching flyer, I can make that for you! My designs showcase the main event and entice the viewer to come in and learn more details.
|| POLITICAL DESIGN
If you are a candidate running for public office, I'm the guy for you! I have experience in creating campaign branding and the print/social media collateral that you need to stand out in the crowd!
|| SPORTS LOGOS
If you're a sports team looking for a logo to put on your jerseys, I can do that for you! I specialize in creating well-researched designs that uniquely represent your team and your local community.
|| GETTING TO KNOW YOU WHAT DO YOU DO, AND HOW CAN I HELP?
Before we start the project, you and I have a conversation about what your business or organization does so that I have an understanding of what my designs will do for you. This is where we decide on a budget, timelines, and what you would like me to create for you.
|| RESEARCH GETTING INSPIRATION FOR YOUR UNIQUE DESIGN
A creative brief from you informs me of what you want your design to communicate and a design direction for me to pursue. I then research other similar businesses and organizations to see what logos they use, and I research how other designers interpret your overall design ideas.
|| PAPER SKETCHES THE MOST FLEXIBLE PART OF THE PROCESS
After research, I come to you with a variety of different design concepts that fit with your creative brief, which we then whittle down into two or three of your favorite concepts. Revisions are the easiest during this stage, so don't be afraid to be vocal about what's working in a concept and what is not.
|| DIGITAL REVISIONS WHERE THE SKETCHES TURN INTO PRETTY GRAPHICS
This is the longest part of the process, regardless of the complexity of your project. This is where I pull together my research and the sketches into a polished graphic while experimenting with various colors and typefaces. After putting together the fundamental elements, I send you a progress shot of what I'm doing and ask for revisions before I work on the finer details. This cycle continues for one or two more rounds of revisions.
|| FINAL DELIVERABLES GOOD TO GO!
Once I make a design that you and I are both satisfied with, the files are good to go! This is where you and I discuss the logistics of the payment; I accept PayPal and Zelle, though I'll be just as good with a physical check! Once the payment details are settled, I send a ZIP folder of your files your way, and the project is pretty much complete!
"Working with Lysander was by far the smoothest experience I could've had in designing a logo for my small business.
From the moment that I reached out to him with my potential ideas, he was extremely enthusiastic and brought it into fruition with his own wonderfully unique touches. He updated me every step of the way with drafts, giving me full freedom to make any adjustments, until I was fully satisfied with the final result!
I highly recommend working with him on any graphic design needs!"
|| YOLANDA SUEñA CON DULCE
"As someone who has run for office successfully several times and also worked on large- and small-scale campaigns, I can safely say that Lysander is by far the most artistic and creative graphic designer I have ever worked with. He understands the importance of meeting critical deadlines while producing the highest quality materials.
I strongly recommend him for crucial campaigns and important projects."
|| ANTHONY sALINAS City Councilman
"I want to express my happiness with your graphic design work. The design that you came up with for my small business was contemporary and clean.
I hadn’t given you any guidelines and your design was completely your own. The feedback that I’ve been given from other businesses and companies similar to mine has been overwhelmingly positive. Your work was better than I had hoped for. I have used your logo on hats and bags, as well as on my books and CDs.
I am delighted with your work and I am happy to recommend you to anyone else thinking of using your talents."
