Joshua Smith, founder of“I had the pleasure of meeting Jeremy when he was a layout editor in our curriculum department, but I got to know him better when I was his client for a logo design. Very quickly he made a couple impressions with me: the ease in which he collaborates with others and his creativity. Jeremy genuinely likes people. He wants to get to know you and learn why you want to do what you want to do. While he'll make suggestions during the creative process, he ultimately wants to make sure you're happy with his work as well as make sure that the design(s) he makes for you conveys everything you want down to every nuance. Not only does he conduct himself with a level of professionalism usually seen in much older people, he's also just a likable guy. I highly recommend him for any creative design project.”BrightMinds

Next, color choices seemed infinite, so we narrowed it down to feeling: blue to feel credible, and red for motivation.
The final color combination was chosen as seen below in a business card design:
