Hi I’m Chris Kecun,
I am the owner and maintainer of symbolicmeasures.co.uk. As a self-taught self-employed graphic designer I aim to bring the liberal freelancer spirit to individuals, charities and small to medium businesses. I wish to make our world more shiny one pixel at a time.
As a person used to using software that is free to use by everyone I am in a unique position to talk you through how you too can enjoy the benefits of open source systems and applications.
Artist by design. For me it began at a young age as an escape from moralistic classroom lectures, ethics and theology. Inking harmless politicly neutral doodles on a pad which I should have been taking notes on. People don't change but the tools they use can. These days I'm astounded by the beauty of mathematical fractal images - which are essentially complex graphs rendered on computers.
Many I share as openly as the free to use software I used to build them, others are available for you to purchase as otherworldly abstract prints. Please take a moment to browse my public gallery.
A Strong Corporate Identity is worth thousands as logoguru demonstrates well with their article on 12 Famous logos and thier price tags. Yet even the smallest project can benefit from a logo. You may feel that your products and services do not warrant a huge investment, but as firebubble points out, there is a lot of research required in producing a graphic suitable for your business needs and logo design prices often reflect that.
Symbolic Measures is different in that we do not view the design of your logo as an isolated deal. It is the beginnings of a relationship that I sincerely hope will grow form success to success.
