Logo Conceptual Design

Branding is a critical element of any business and your logo is only a small part of designing a recognizable mark or symbol that clearly identified your business. A logo should be considered as your business’ identification. A logo is not a strategy, but rather a company’s “avatar” in a way. Logos should be memorable, simple and timeless, leaving room for what the logo actually represents – you. YCG works in partnership with Digital Worxx to create crisp, creative & phenomenal professional services that put your mind at ease.

Let YORR Consulting Group create a customized logo towards helping you build your brand & grow your business! ** Prices vary based on need and complexity of design.
