Based in Kelowna B.C, Tamara brings her 15 years of design experience to offer the best in Kelowna logo design and branding for both new and established businesses. A successful logo comprises of both great design and a solid foundation. Find out more about the logo design process below.
Logo Design & Branding Package
This is where we deep dive into the ‘why’ behind your brand. We explore the inspiration and story behind your business. If you currently have a logo but it isn’t working for you, we explore why it isn’t working and what can be changed to better reflect your brand as a whole and attract the customers you should be attracting.
Competitor & Industry Research
Finding out who your direct competitors are is key to creating a successful brand. Your branding should be unique, make an impact and accurately represent your business. By ensuring your logo stands out, the design is giving you an advantage even before your customers know anything about you or the products and services you provide.
Color Palette, Illustrations & Fonts
Color is one of the main components to creating the overall feeling and vibe of the design. Green is associated with growth and safety while red reflects passion and energy. I’ll delve into the colors that best reflect your brand and the feelings you want to evoke.
For all logos I sketch out pages of ideas with pencil first, then refine them down to the strongest concepts. Depending on the style of logo, it may involve creating custom hand-drawn illustrations. I create these first by drawing them in pencil then refining them digitally creating a cohesive look with the rest of the logo.
A typeface can make or break a logo. I have a extensive collection of high-quality typefaces I have purchased throughout the years that I can draw from to find the perfect font that suits your brand. If it’s not in my library, I’ll purchase a new one or even create it from scratch if I need to.
Once the logo design has been approved, I’ll create any additional brand assets to compliment the main logo. These can include alternative logomarks, patterns and imagery. It’s important all of your branding is cohesive throughout your communications. This can include business cards, social media graphics, website, packaging and newsletters. United branding creates a strong and impactful presence.
Having brand consistency is a major key to ongoing success. A brand styleguide is a reference document for all of the brand assets that will be created down the road. It typically contains things such as the color palette, names of fonts, logo usage and imagery guidelines. It’s an essential resource for any brand looking to keep their designs uniform moving into the future.
Final Logo Package
Having all of the standard logo files for your brand is essential. A complete logo file package may consist of files such as:
- Vector formats for use in print such as PDF and AI
- Raster formats for web use such as JPG
- Transparent background
- A wordmark as well as a logomark only version
- Horizontal and vertical formats
- A black and white version
It’s important for me to make sure you have all the files you’ll need in the correct formats so you can feel confident in sending your files out as required.

“I’ve worked with Galaxybomb twice now for full logo design, branding and website builds. Each time I’ve been so impressed with Tamara’s attention to detail, she made sure that the final product fully represented my vision while maintaining an efficient timeline from brainstorming to final hand-off. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services for any designs, our projects were very diverse and she understood the different branding needs for each one.”
