Aby was a fantastic, flexible, and enthusiastic designer. She was able to take our direction and create a logo that defined us and made it usable in both digital and traditional media formats. Would definitely work with her again, and hope to do so!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our company sells customized photo frames and plaques. This photo plaque is designed for a person to place their own 5x7" photo in it. The theme is 13.1 or a half marathon. The target market is someone who is interested in buying an item they can hang on their wall to celebrate their finishing a half marathon race. It is most likely that the buyer will be a woman, but it might be a gift for a male who finished a half marathon. Marathon and half marathon runners tend to be higher middle class and wealthy individuals. The person who buys this item will not be a professional runner. Instead it will be someone who wants to celebrate the accomplishment of finishing a marathon.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need artwork that will be printed on the face of a 9x11" plaque that has an opening that holds a 5x7" photo. The artwork should be something that a person who finishes a half marathon (13.1 miles) would want to hang on their home or office walls with their photo. The artwork/design should clearly identify that it is celebrating the finishing of a half marathon and it should be unisex so either a male or female can use it with their photo. The average age of someone who will buy this item is likely early 30s. The measurement from the bottom of the opening for the photo to the bottom of the plaque is 4 3/4". The smaller area of the face of the plaque around the sides and top of the opening for the photo measures 1 1/8".
We are open minded to the artwork and design. We do not want anything for a specific race. Instead we are looking for artwork/design that a runner would like regardless what half marathon they completed.
