        My husband left academia three years ago and went from being a philosopher to a carpenter! He’s been learning the trade and is now focusing on the business side. We’re developing a game plan for 2016 to hopefully include a website and marketing, but wanted a great name and logo first! Thanks again!

          That’s a really interesting journey. I think it would do well to tell that story in your business. If you want help brainstorming business names I would be happy to help. Give me a call and we could all talk more about it. 513-290-4423.

          I think it would be complex to try to play on a famous philosopher’s name. At least ones I am aware of. Maybe something latin with “carpentry” after or even something showing off the brainiac side of himself would be nice. Carpentry, Remodeling, woodworking, and construction are going to be the industry standard ending words for most business names. While you don’t have to end with a word like that, you won’t need to spend loads of advertising money letting people know what you do if you use them in the name. You could also use one of those words in the slogan to help let people know what type of business you do.

          I am happy to help brainstorm if you are looking for ideas!

            This is great feedback Matt, thank you! We definitely feel like we’re on Madmen lately! Lots of brainstorming, crowd sourcing friends on Facebook for market research, and learning all kinds of graphic design/logo terms like ‘vectors’. Thanks again for your help!

            Ha ha! Fantastic! It’s important to learn your lingo before getting involved with designing a logo. You for sure want a “vector” logo. Here are THE BEST FORMATS when getting your logo and it takes only a few extra minutes to give a logo to someone in a variety of file types. A few different sized jpg, png (without background), pdf (some printers like this format, vector), and ai (if they used adobe illustrator for the design, vector). Some designers may not want to provide the ai or source file that’s something you should talk about before hand. With that file you can make any changes down the road and easily export to any dimensions that you wish.
