Excellent job. Followed instructions very well and understood the look I was going for. I would recommend working with this designer.
Eklm was the perfect designer for our project. Everything we asked for Eklm did with great expertise and professionalism the entire time. The logo design is amazing and beyond what we expected in shaping our company's new branding. Thank you Eklm for all you did for us!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Sharks are threatened globally. Over 100 million sharks are killed each year, which is about double the rate that sharks can replenish their numbers. In an effort to save sharks, efforts are underway to demonstrate that sharks are worth far more alive (for tourism) than dead (in soup). sustainablesharkdiving.com is a global shark conservation project that seeks to change negative public perceptions of sharks through the promotion of sustainable shark diving operations. We use an online one-stop-shop that targets tourists interested in diving with sharks to find dive tourism providers in destinations, and then a customer review platform for them to rate that business across a set of qualitative and quantitative measures. The objective is to use positive and negative consumer feedback to promote best practices as well as improve poor practices. This is not just for the safety of customers, but for the overall safety of sharks. The site also has tools for dive tourism companies to learn how to employ best sustainable practices for their particular settings.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
I'd like to explore the following colors:
Blues: Knowledge, trust, calm and honesty.
Greens: Growth, harmony and success.
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
I don't want anything too stereotypically scary or menacing in the design elements; We are trying to alter the misconception that sharks are dangerous. So design elements that evoke wildlife or more stylized designs that combine a diver with a shark are preferred.
Wondering if there is a design that could use a stylized or outine of a dive mask (see attached image of typical mask) with a reflection of a shark in the faceplate?
Something that combines a shark fin with a diving fin could be a creative approach as well. Not married to any particular idea at this point, just want something bold and fairly evocative of what we are trying to accomplish.
Key user impressions that Sustainable Shark Diving wants to build through our website and products include: shark positive, professional, practical tools for decision-making, un-biased reviews, honest, open access (no fees to use online tools), safety first, conservation.
