And this relationship we have with them varies. Some of us discuss almost everything with them while others limit our conversations to only current, topical information; weather, sports etc. I myself being the later.
So when I discovered that Tony, the guy who’d been cutting my hair for all those years, had left his place of employ and bought a salon of his own, of course I followed him to his new place. And it was here that I revealed my background in advertising and design.
He shared his plan to re-brand this existing salon he’d purchased under a new name and I of course offered my services in designing his logo for him.
He explained that the services he would be providing beyond a great hair cut/style, would be hair colour (his specialty) and also a wig service for cancer patients for which he would be creating a beautifully remodeled private space at the back of the salon for their comfort.
He was delighted with the logo design and the project grew to designing his signage, business cards & bags as well as providing design input on the in-store renovations he was planning and which are currently taking place.
And there are now plans for a newspaper ad, Facebook page & video.
