Graphic design for all of your needs including
logo design, flyers, business cards, stationary and more.
Graphic design is an important mechanism for establishing your brand and grabbing the attention of viewers. And if quality graphic design is important, you need a graphic designer that can provide top-notch design. And JWorks Studios is the place for THAT graphic designer.
My graphic design portfolio includes work for a wide variety of industries, professions and uses. I design logos for businesses — large and small — in industries such as music entertainment, fashion, makeup and beauty, auto dealerships and more. I don't limit my graphic design services to businesses, I also do logos and design for non-profits, parties and personal use. And no matter the size, all of my clients receive the same quality and attention to their graphic design projects.
For logos and graphic design, I use a combination of graphic design programs to get the job done. From industry standards like Photoshop, to lesser known graphic design programs like CorelDraw.
If you like my graphic design work and you'd like me to do your design project, the steps are extremely simple:
This is a logo design for an electronic cigarette product. The company is a long-time client who wanted to merge the original logo, [Reign], with their new product. Keeping with the theme, regal, this logo design incoporates the standout crown, swords, a ribbon banner and iconic V. Tying with the idea of vapor is stylized purple and silver vapor.

This is the new logo for Trajec Consequences. The design blends sharp angles with curves to produce a sweet logo, I must say.

Graphic design can be used to give hints and that is exactly what this cd cover is designed to do. The cd cover design sports a book with gold foil lettering as the title of the album, a splatter effect with viewport shadows. All together gives you a hint of the theme of the album.
Logo for sunFLEC Solutions. A clean, modern and professional logo design developed using Illustrator. Selling patented radiant barrier technology, the logo illustrates that purpose idea by reflecting a hot, wave of sunlight away thus cooling the home.

The EPiQ logo design is one of my favorites. Epiq makes custom after-market parts, changing the look and performance of its cars. The logo's design had to be one that reflected power, style, and free-form creativity. With this logo design, I think I made a nice statement.

This logo design is the second in a series for the mobile software company GoMoto. The sphynx design was used in the logo because, of course, that was the name of their 2.0 version software. Building on the brand identity we previously established with their first logo, the sphynx logo design was a pleasing success for our graphic design department.
Classy and Sassy logo design. Brand design for a clothing line for women. A combination of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop were used. Illustrator for logo design, Photoshop for the graphic design presentation.
This logo was my first at a boutique and I believe is a nice outcome. The style of the logo, in design, reflects that of its namesake. The logo is simple, elegant and sleek -- something a boutique is designed to be without overwhelming you with a design that's too, "girly", as the owners put it.

This is one of the cooler pieces of graphic design I did in flash that still gets lots of kudos. This animated graphic piece was for an upcoming album Been There Done That. This flash design is what I call a "digital billboard" and is used for advertisment and marketing across the web.
Being that I also did the album cover, I used the same theme to animate the billboard using Adobe Flash. I used multiple graphic design packages to bring this one project together, and what I end up with is a piece of graphic design that everybody seems to love! And that's what I like to hear. That's what I'm about.

Price = Quality. And my work is guaranteed.
The graphic design process generally has the same key points every time whether I'm designing a logo or designing graphics for a branding campaign. There are differences with time and difficulty, but the process is usually the same.
Determine the type of project this is. Is it a logo? Is it graphic design for a poster? Is it a website?. This gets you in the mindset of preparing yourself for all of the finer parts of producing graphics for that particular useage.
Yes, all of the graphics look great once they're done, but in order to get there, you have to know what it will look like at the end and work toward that goal step by step. What message will the design send to people who view it? What message should it send? Knowing how the design will be used once complete will help clearly establish the overall project goal.
Not all graphic design projects will use the same design software. I need to determine the usage beforehand. Designs that will mainly be developed for print will require a different graphic design program than a design that will be used strictly for the web. Knowing this helps me know what graphic design program I will need.
Secondly, knowing what the finished design will look like in my head gives me a chance to use different techniques to reach that graphic style.
I view graphic design is an investment for my clients. I don't let anyone check off a project until I get full feedback on my graphic design work. In some cases I use another set of eyes to get their first impressions of the design.
Eventually there will be a slight change to the initial design. Getting feedback from my clients and updating the design fine tunes our collective vision for the design project.
Clients always love my graphic design work, but am I completely pleased with the design? Before I make the decision to release my graphic design work to the client, I cretique it heavily, myself. I view the design from different angles, turn my head quickly and turn back to see what my first impressions of the design would be, and sometimes make it my desktop wallpaper and just stare at it. Being such a hard critic of my own designs reassures that if I would be happy viewing this design over long periods of time, my client will definitely be satisfied.
Like most graphic design projects, the time it takes to create a logo varies by design.
Simple logos, i.e. those that are monochrome or simplistic in design, on average see around an hour of work time, plus minor design tweak time. More detailed logos from therein increase in design detail, and thus, time.
I don't skimp on quality just because a logo's design is simpler than another. All of my logos get the same quality check but it's just a fact that some take longer than others. My quality is always guaranteed!
I work virtually (telecommute) so that means I can design what you need no matter where you are. Although I am a graphic designer in the Dallas area, I regularly do graphic design for clients all over the United States and other countries. I have a history of doing graphic design for clients who reside in Dallas, Texas, New York, California, Orlando, Florida, Hawaii, and as far away as Japan. So no matter where you are, I can be your graphic designer.
Many graphic designers have one particluar thing they do well and they choose to stick to that. As a graphic desiger, myself, I am lucky enough to be successful in a lot of disciplines. But how do you choose a great graphic designer?
A deep and diverse graphic design portfolio is a showcase of a graphic designer's talents. The amount of the designs is important, but the quality of their graphic design work speaks volumes, because that is the kind of work you can expect to see yourself.
Versatility is another important trait of great graphic designer. The ability to show that you can handle any task, familiar and foreign is something that any really good graphic designer should be able to show. Having a versatile graphic designer you trust ensures you the security that any design project you can throw at him will be accomplished with the same flair and quality as all of his previous graphic design projects.
Thoughtful questioning is another sign of the right graphic designer. I ask specific questions to a client to get to know:
Experience and location are essential in picking a graphic designer. If you're looking for a graphic design guru but are more worried about the price rather than the quality and your satisfaction, then what you're actually looking for is anybody out there with access to graphic design software. Not good...Lots of people turn to graphic designers in other countries —We've all heard the stories about graphic designers in India. The exchange rate may seem beneficial to some but in actuality, wether or not they satisfy your graphic design needs, you're at their mercy. Being a graphic designer in Dallas, TX, I have a verifyable work history, accessible state-side references, and do business with American-based finiancial systems that make sure all of your payments are safe, secure, and protected from fly-by-night tactics, unlike some graphic designers.
When choosing a great graphic designer, do not use price as the leading factor in your decision. The fact is many people look for the cheapest graphic designer but in the end wind up with cheap graphics to match the price. Don't be fooled. Budget is always a factor, but many people use that word as a crutch when in fact they are just being cheap. You can always find someone who will design your logo for $5, $10, $15 flat. Just remember that that is not a bargain, but a reason. Great graphic design is an investment and you should approach it as an investment. So if you find a graphic designer (me) with a deep and diverse portfolio (me), and you appreciate (my) design work, seriously consider making [me] your official graphic designer.
