Lisa Stewart Design Studio has a brand update: Build Your Own Small Business.

Why I decided to make a brand update

When I moved to Seattle last year, I renewed my love of freelancing in design, Web, and usability for small business. My freelancing activities were under my name Lisa Stewart (Design Studios).

Over the past year, I became deeply re-connected in the World of small business as an advisor and guide. Expanding this role from a mere freelancer working on piece-meal projects, my growth as a small business guide has enabled me to expand my network of great people in Seattle with complementary skills and grow my business.

As a quick aside: My diverse experience spans more than 25 years in the design industry. Over the years, I have learned a variety of ways to sell my products using traditional, guerrilla, and new media marketing since I started my own greeting card line at the age of 7. Oh my, perhaps this makes it much more than 25 years? Anyhow, these methods have taught me how to distinguish myself among a sea of competitors and craft a compelling brand. As a result, my experience has grown into advising several size business ranging from Fortune 100 companies to micro businesses on design, marketing, and Web development.

Today, as my small business client needs broaden, so must my business services inside my network. Huzzah!

BYO Small Business Logo Design Elements

The logo remains the same. The logo includes 3 interlocking rings that represent RGB – my love of color and design. I implement this system for all the products and services I create. This leads us to the dot in the center. The dot in the center represents the sweet spot when all 3 elements come together to form the perfect product or service.
