I'm very happy that Valerie joined my competition.
Three key strengths that made her stand out from the other designers:
- She came up with various design alternatives that were substantially different, rather than iterating on a single design
- She ignored some of the elements in my design brief that simply weren't that relevant to a good logo. This sounds counter-intuitive, but in doing so she could instead focus on the core of my brand and avoid diluting it with various design elements that I thought would be 'nice-to-have'
- When asked about her design choices, she provided a clear and comprehensive explanation, further demonstrating her talent as a designer.
How hannah Td started their logo design journey
Who are you known as?
talk shop speech therapy, inc.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We're a speech therapy clinic for children of all ages. The kids we see are anywhere from 1 year to 12 years old, so the logo should appeal to a range of ages (and their parents), not just toddlers.
See "Notes" section below for ideas.

Logo types to explore
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
I'm picturing that the logo will involve any of the following: the brain, a "speech bubble," Legos/blocks, tools, gears, a mouth, or bubbles (speech therapists often blow bubbles with the children so maybe there could be a bubble wand incorporated, and the "O" in the business name could be a bubble, and there could be a few other bubbles floating around).
The word "shop" has multiple meanings (shopping, workshop) and I want my focus to be on the workshop meaning, which is why I say I picture tools and gears are good design elements.
