Sharp Mill Graphics is a Chicago area commercial signage & graphics company and looking to build a relationship with a freelance designer/illustrator to help build a brand identity (business cards, brochures, signage, vehicle wraps, etc) and website images (page headers, illustration backgrounds, etc) to complement our company name, current attached logo and color palette. (We are going to be working on a new website and would like to incorporate the work you would be designing.)
The ideal person should be very savvy with Adobe Illustrator and should have a very strong industrial/factory design style and able to design complete vector illustration scenes of inside a factory, a city block of storefronts with signage above each business storefront with the Chicago skyline in the background, 3d words that look exactly like channel letter signs, vintage vehicles to represent our vehicle graphic solutions, etc.
We want to portray the feeling of high quality signage & graphics being printed/manufactured/fabricated inside the Mill. The halftone smoke billowing out of the stacks in our logo represents all the hard work going on inside. Our tagline is "Crafted by Creativity™".
Some inspiration that should help is our ideal future location for our company would be an old, industrial warehouse in Chicago with exposed steel beams on the ceiling, galvanized fixtures, polished concrete floors, rustic barnwood accents and be very industrial looking.
