Being a graphic designer, there are a lot of opportunities to make dreams come true as well. A client contracted me to make the logo, the mascots, and the website’s design. The show’s stars, John David and Nickole, were designed according to their physical features. Hold up folks, the show doesn’t end there. I also designed four animals and four additional characters, each having 10 expressions. The challenge here lies in maintaining uniformity in style, while making sure that each is still unique. After all my hard work, the client was happy with the vector quality mascots. You can check out all of my designs for their site at oobakids.com.
Creating art for clients can also be creating a personal relationship with them. When a group of marketers contracted me for a mascot design, I had to truly understand each of them. My plan was for each mascot to emulate their traits. Incorporating all of those in one design was indeed impossible, so the challenge was using a handful of their traits to my design without losing recognizability. I carefully picked their most unique characterizations and let that show in my final output. They were more than satisfied with my work, and even posted it on social media sites for the whole world to witness.
My client owns a business which sells and recycles scrap metals, the Warrington Metals. I was elated and honored when he requested that I use my talents to create a mascot design for his company. To make it more meaningful, the services they offer were integrated into my design. With the mascot having aluminum for his right arm and copper for his left, it was completely ready for heavy-duty metal scrapping and recycling. To top it off is an aluminum belt, adorning the company’s initials ‘WM’. He adored the outcome, and even used it as his business logo. Needless to say, I’m honored.

“I had to produce a flight safety card but the standard drawings were fussy and unclear. A previous card was converted to a simpler style. I asked Harvey to match the design for the new card and supply in vector format. He seamlessly blended the existing style with the new instructions. Harvey was keen to offer revisions if I needed them but he got everything perfect on the first pass. I would definitely recommend him for your illustrations.”
“I have had the pleasure to contract Harvey's design services for both small and large projects. He helped me by designing and framing a website for a web based silloncone valley start-up business. He has designed company Mascots, logos, Van Wraps, and YouTube artwork for a children's show. I highly recommend Harvey for any project no matter how simple or complex.”
“I contacted Harvey about a company logo after seeing his designs and noticing that extra 'polish' he put into his work. He did an awesome job coming up with basic designs and then modifying them based on suggestions I wanted to try. Everything was done quickly. He didn't make me wait long at all for a response. I'm really happy with the result and I will definitely hire him in the future for any more work I may need.”
