New website now active!!! Please see company website at http://www.akdesigns.net for more information about what we do! The recent projects page is a great place to get inspiration and a sense for the type of projects we work on and the style/selections of our design team.
On 2/8 at 2am, I woke up and sketched out what I think should be the baseline for our logo. It's a cube with 4 letters... A-K-D-G. UPDATE: WE LIKE TO GO LINEAR WITH THE AKDG INSTEAD OF IN A CUBE. Graphic designers please use this moving forward for your designs, applying your interpretation and talents with fonts, colors, and ideas on how/if we can tastefully incorporate a graphic that causes the viewer to think "hotel".
We are an established professional design firm, which is different than a "decorator". Think more like an architectural practice and not like a home goods retailer....
The AK in AK Designs comes from Andrea Kronberg Gillespie's initials. Andrea is the principal and founder. It is a common practice for upstart design firms to use initials. Since the company was founded, Andrea has gotten married and taken the last name Gillespie. There is more "brand equity" in the last name "Gillespie" in our business because of our strong network in the hospitality business and my father, another Gillespie, being a hotel architect for 40+ years. We need to find a smart way of incorporating "Gillespie" or a "G" into our new branding. This is THE challenge!
Thank you, Andrea and David Gillespie
