The Problem

Karl has been working in the industry for 30 years. After researching the clock repair / clockmaker market, I found that the designs of this and most business’ in the field are left as an afterthought.

Currently, Karl was running his business on word of mouth jobs and needed a way for people to find him and contact him through the internet.

Karl needed a logo and website that brought him up to speed with the changing times.

User & Audience

People that are searching for Karl’s clock repair have inherited these clocks as family heirlooms. Most of them are ages 30 – 40 and use the internet as a way of searching for services.

Design Process

The logos for clockmakers and clock repair often include an elegant gold touch to them with intricate details and / or a wood style involved. I chose to keep it along the modern side to appeal to the growing younger audience. Below are some samples of the logo design process.
