How Emblems Are Made

From start to finish, this is the typical path an emblem will take.

You’ll start with showing us your artwork, and we’ll talk about your favorite emblem styles, and how the emblem will be used. Based on this, I’ll present you with ideas that I feel will best accomplish your goals.

Upon your approval, I’ll get started…

1 – 3D Design

Most important here is you have complete control of the design process. The render looks just like the finished piece, and can be tweaked if desired. Once you are comfortable with the 3D design, we will move on to step 2. Our motto- “No surprises is a good thing”!
