The first thing I did was to research the term 'Vibration'. I especially liked what I found when looking at mathematical equations and the relationships between displacement, amplitude and time. I next looked into sound waves and ways to visually represent them. Lastly, I played around with creating a logo mark that could also serve as an abstract letter 'V' that would work well in social media and other smaller applications where you can't fit the entire company name.
I think the final logo is a great combination of these three elements, and is right in line with the tone and personality I was trying to hit. I'm also really proud of how the logomark lends itself to some really interesting visual motifs with the organic lines and repeating patterns. I'm excited to see what Vibe does with it.
Vibe: How do you think Vibe will change the world of work for local creatives, entrepreneurs and remote workers in Poulsbo and beyond?
NJ: Finding the right working location. I know this sounds like a plug for Vibe, but it's true. I am lucky enough not to really worry about getting clients because they seem to come my way. My main issue is that I am a one-person shop with no desire to grow bigger, but I still need an office, and there are very few options that fall within my budget and still have the 'feel' I want. Also, I get really tired working by myself, which is probably why I am at coffee shops all the time.
Vibe: What are you passionate about, beyond work?
NJ: My family. I love spending time with my girls (wife and two daughters). Beyond that I daydream about classic cars and motorcycles more than I probably should.
Vibe: What's the best piece of advice that you have heard and repeat to others?
NJ: Over deliver. I never want a client / friend / family member to feel like I didn't do everything I could to help them.
Vibe: What's your favorite thing about Poulsbo?
NJ: The community. I love that when I walk down the street I know people and that I feel like I am part of the city.
Vibe: In your opinion, what is the future of work?
NJ: I think it will get more and more virtual, but that people will always want a home base. I can do 90% of my job virtually, but I know that I won't get much done if I work from home. I don't think I'm alone in this.
