Outstanding Designer. Was able to quickly translate our brief in to multiple artistic designs and was extremely responsive in producing revisions with every suggestion or request during the competition. We would be thrilled to work with this Designer again.
The designer created a mockup book cover very fast and it looked great. The designer worked on two projects for us at the same time. We appreciate the quick turnaround and we work great with this designer.

This is a certification logo for our company. We recently gained approval into the USDA Process Verified program to demonstrate to our customers (and their customers) that we are an all-natural processor of soybeans. Over 95% of the soybean meal and oil produced in the US utilizes the chemical compound hexane to separate the vegetable oil from the meal. We use only natural physical processes of extrusion and screw presses. We want our customers to recognize this and are developing this logo to create familiarity. The USDA has rules about the logo:
1) All logos must include the words “USDA,” “Process,” and “Verified” in their logo.
2) No emphasis is placed on any individual word or letter, except for the word "USDA."
3) The font size must be approximately the same for all three words: "USDA," "Process," and "Verified." However, the word "USDA" may be a larger font size than the words "Process" and "Verified."
4) The words "USDA," "Process," and "Verified" must be presented in order as ”USDA Process Verified,” when written horizontally, and that the end user understands the wording to effectively represent the USDA Process Verified Program.
I am including samples of other USDA process verified logos. Ours should be professional and natural looking (possibly green soybean plant background) with the term Hexane Free in addition to "USDA Process Verified." The goal is to make the logo professional-looking so that it presents that authority of the certification that it represents. The non-gmo project logo is a good example.
