Logos

… and more below

Back in the year 2013, I started designing websites and found a new found love for it. I also began designing logos, and loved the creative side of it. I can’t quite explain how ideas come to me when I commence the design, as all I need is the business info. from, say, a company owner as well as any preferred colours and then the creative flow begins.

The ideas come in 10s and I can’t put it into practise quick enough, … but this isn’t a memoir, so enough of that. It usually takes me around 2 hours to get an initial draft of a logo and then the alterations begin “I like it, but” .. “can you change the…” and all that jazz. I even step away for half hour and come back to replenish the idea factory to see if it does feel right. I then send a draft to the client, and any tweaks needed (or rarely a whole re-design) are undergone and hey presto, we have a logo.

Client Logos

Here are the real important logos, for the clients. I’ve been honoured to be chosen to design a logo and for that business that deals with everyday going ons etc, wants to use my logo design. It never really kicks in, but I love helping and producing a decent enough logo for a company to use. Better yet, to have it then placed on multiple webpages on a website. Incredible. I only charge a one-off payment of £45 per logo designed, and the copyright is entirely owned by you/your business, no strings.

We All Had to Start From Somewhere [Palm on Face]

Put your hands up if you wanna see some very very early designs and creations of my web design business logo? You’ll see above my first logo from college, when I had a huge interest in web design (horrible isn’t it). I’ve had [non-registered] names of Ace TC Designs, TC’s PC’s & Designs and the current TCQC … TCQC is the one I’m most proud of, only took a few logos to get there. I am highly attention to detail when it comes to designing websites as well as logos, things have to be precise, whether that’s centering a piece of text, or making sure colours match and work well with each other. So looking back at my very early work, I’ve come a very long way with heaps of experience and knowledge gained …. as well as my creative brain.

We then come to TC’s PC’s & Designs, in which I covered technical issues as well as designing websites. A more professional logo as you’ll see above, with similar colours to what I have for TCQC. Always been a huge fan of light gold/yellow on blue as an eye-catching and appropriate colour scheme (thank you ICT teacher Mr. Weight from high school). The slogan from then has also changed since, since I’ve gone solely as a web designer. This logo isn’t too bad, but contained a few pieces that were a tad on the small side. You’ll also see I tried changing the logo again with a logo looking as though it is breaking away … I didn’t really like it after many draft attempts!

And finally, we finish at my current logo for TCQC. A perfect blend of blue and light gold with a simple but effective structure. If you didn’t know already, the initials of the logo consist of my full name, which I have had asked throughout my whole life: “what’s the Q in your name?” … I would answer with “guess” and some gems have always stuck in my mind from people’s guesses, such as Quabble, Quint and Quadrilateral. When in fact, it’s Quantrill, which I absolutely love and hold in the family due to the rent passing of my grandparents. The T is for Tom, the first C is for Coventry (my mum’s side) and the other C is for the best surname in the world (Clark, with no E…. everyone always does an E).

The main inspiration for my logo is through my late grandad Philip Quantrill, who I looked up to all my life and is an immense role model to me. He had near enough the same logo colours for his, in which was a successful steel company (see below).

Banners

… and more in the works

As well as designing sites, I’ve also been designing banners. Most recently I’ve been designing pitch-side advertisement boards for Rockland Utd FC! They’ve had various (in fact a lot of) companies sponsor them, and one such way is through a physical board at Rocklands. What an honour to produce designs to be seen by hundreds every week but also for the companies themselves! See a few boards above designed by myself. The boards are custom made through Sign ID who do a fab job. I can design banners for any company so get in touch and we can begin!
