Working with Passion and People

Design has always been a passion of mine, because I love art and creating, but I'm also very goal-oriented and I love my creativity to also be productive and serve a purpose. When I can create a piece of art that can help a business create a brand and that I can see in tangible action, it makes me so happy! I always found that time spent designing felt more like play than work, so I knew it was the right field for me.

What I love about the Etsy community is all of the great people who I've had a chance to work with here. Everyone is so ready and willing to help and to create that perfect something! I too love working with people and client interaction is one of my favorite parts of the job. When I can create "that perfect something" (in this case, a logo!) for someone that can make them happy, that makes me happy too :)

Between my passion for design and my love of working with people, opening a logo shop on Etsy just seemed natural! Above and in my item descriptions are just a few samples of custom logos I've created, I hope I can work with you too to create a custom logo that's perfect for your business.

Welcome to Second Star! Thank you so much for your interest in my design services. I am the only designer here at Second Star, and customer satisfaction is my priority, so I will work with you and communicate with you throughout the design process to ensure you get a logo you can be proud of. For a sample of my previous work, please view my portfolio at:

For each design, I'll send you a questionnaire first to determine what you're interested in for the look of your design. Please message me through Etsy to receive this questionnaire. Due to the bizarre nature of my creative process, I'd prefer if you would fill out the questionnaire FIRST, BEFORE purchasing a logo, so that I can ensure I have good ideas for your logo and so that I can send you a projected deadline for your logo. It's no big deal if you purchase first, but in case you're not satisfied with the timeline or I feel I may not be the best person to create your logo, it's easier to handle those issues upfront (though I'm more than happy to refund later should we discover these issues after payment).

In regards to the timeline, I will provide you with a projected week in which I can give you your finished logo after I receive your completed questionnaire. If this week works well for you, then go ahead and purchase the logo and I'll send you your drafts! If it doesn't, please message me back and we can discuss possible rush options. HOWEVER, this projected week is subject to change based on your response time to each draft I send you. I believe that a great logo needs input from you as well, so that I can make sure you're happy, so delayed responses may push back my completion date, and I will update you on any changes in that date as they arise. I have a fairly quick response time, and projected production times can be viewed in the item description.

All logos and artwork displayed in this shop were created solely by me. However, not all logos are affiliated with the companies named in them; some of the logos were unused proposals submitted to those companies. Second Star Creative Co. does not have a relationship with all of the companies named on the site.

If you have ANY questions at all, please feel free to message me! I will be more than happy to help. Thank you for your time, and I hope you choose to work with Second Star!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Currently, I accept all payments through PayPal.
All files are transmitted electronically, which helps save both shipping time and the planet! If you need some form of hard copy of your design, please discuss this with me BEFORE I begin your project and BEFORE you submit payment so that I can let you know whether or not I can provide you with that hard copy.
Refunds and Exchanges
Full payment is due after I receive your questionnaire and respond to you with a projected deadline (see welcome section for deadline policy).

Refunds may be provided in full BEFORE you receive your initial drafts. After initial drafts have been received, if you are unsatisfied, a refund may be requested within 72 hours of receiving the drafts; however, there will be a fee of 25$ for my time invested in the project thusfar. Once revisions have begun, I cannot provide any refunds, but the logo has become yours at this time. If you have serious concerns about the direction of your logo at this time, please share them with me and we can discuss options individually, because your happiness with your final product is my priority!

I work on a fairly speedy timeline to give you the best possible product as promptly as possible, and so if I do not hear from you for three weeks, I will assume the project has been abandoned and I cannot provide any refunds. Should you foresee a reason that you could lose contact with me during this process (for example, a vacation or family matters) please let me know so that I know not to assume the project has been abandoned, and we can adjust the timeline accordingly to best fit your schedule.

Finally, once your logo has been completed (meaning the maximum number of revisions has been made and you have received the final file) further revisions will be handled on a per-project basis and may be subject to additional fees, which will be discussed BEFORE those revisions are made.

You hold the rights to your logo once revisions have begun, and I retain portfolio rights only at this time, which allows me to display the logo in print and ePortfolios (including but not limited to on my Etsy page and potentially on other design-related websites) as samples of my previous work. I retain the rights to the remaining four non-selected sketches.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please look at each item description to see how many drafts and revisions are included with each logo design, and estimated project deadlines. Thank you so much for your interest in Second Star!

Also, here is a copy of my questionnaire if you'd like to take a look! If you're interested in a logo, please send me your responses to these items. You don't have to answer every sub-question, they're just to give you ideas about what's helpful to me! Just answer what you can and tell me what you'd like me to know :)
