don_deanK got their new logo & brand identity pack by running a design contest:
Let's have fun branding the next great handyman services company. What else can we do in lockdown?
Check out don_deanK's Logo & brand identity pack contest…
Pest Management Property Maintenance
Cleaning & Maintenance
We carry out pest management services slightly more predominately. We also conduct handy man operations, Lawn maintenance, gutter cleaning, compliance certificates, and pretty much any task for any home owner or commercial client. No job too big or too small.
My original idea for a brand logo, several years ago, included retro art work of a technician riding on a falling atom bomb with shark eyes and teeth painted on it. There are many renditions of this from the old movie Dr. Strangelove. This was when my company was going to be solely involved with pest control. But in todays climate, any pictured explosive or environmental disaster within the Australian pest control industry is highly frowned upon (for obvious reasons). This has made other companies create brands that either represent common urban pests, or leaves and greenery. I believe both of these ideas are getting tired and over used. PM Me Pty Ltd, while performing pest management activities as the main desired operation, will be doing pretty much any task required for commercial clients or within the domestic household. More of a handyman service. Such services normally use a picture of a man (think Jims or hire a hubby). I tend to lean toward these ideas, preferentially the simplicity of Jims, with maybe (but not necessarily) a greater undertone toward pest control, whilst making it a little more humorous for added effect, but maintaining complete professionalism (this even sounds to me like a tall order). I think however this might be done by having the man in the logo leaning against the PM with a slightly silly but friendly expression on his face. I emphasize PM (which stands for Pest Management and Property Maintenance) only to make the Me clearly the word Me (as in me, myself and I), otherwise I fear that the company name would look like PMME which has less meaning behind it. I further played around with PM to get private message, which for some reason made the man in my imagined logo hold his hand up to his head in a telephone me gesture. But PM is private message, you don't need to hold the phone up to your ear to send anyone a private message. My thoughts on colour for the logo could be professionally worn as a uniform. I was thinking blaze orange for the text and maybe the symbol or picture (because the uniform would incorporate blaze orange for the purpose of safe visibility and hunting vertebrate pests), with a chocolate to black background (to make the highlighted symbol/picture/text standout, and because it looked good in another logo I found on this website). The end result of my companies logo will be easy enough to be embroidered on a uniform shirt, pictured on a letter head or tax invoice, and painted or stuck on the side of a utility vehicle. Most importantly, it will make people joyfully pick up the phone or search for the company website to engage our services. Oh, and the picture of the man in the logo, if used, would very vaguely look like me, since I started the thing. I hope you can interpret all of this into a great brand for my company, and I would never scoff at better ideas you could come up with. I am excited to see the end result! UPDATE!: please check the messages to designers too. Some very important details in there. See below for some of them. Please don't have me do handy man work in my dressing gown. That is definitely too funny. My uniform was going to be a kaki top. Think Steve Irwin. Try and ease up on the exact likeness of me too peeps. Even I don't want to see that :) Keep in mind, I'm open to your ideas as well. Here is another important note that I would love to express to you great designers out there. I will not be picking the winner of the contest. That will be left up to my friends, family, and customers. And they will be picking the design that I could get the most business from. You have my preferences, but does that really matter? This could be a national brand some day, so lets sell PM Me! I think this will get us all on the right track. Please feel free to ask me any questions, and submit multiple concepts if you like. We will get the perfect logo for this company. Thank you so much for your efforts.

Geson was an absolute pleasure to work with. His helpfulness and prompt amendments of my logo and all other deliverables, made working with him extremely easy. Most importantly, his artistic genius and creativity did not give me the business brand I was looking for, but in fact, gave me something far greater than I could have imagined. Thanks again Geson!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
