Project Goals

Aiming to avoid the overused tree and house motifs, Black Oak Title wanted to change the feeling homebuyers had when it came to escrow and title services. 

They wanted “fun” vibes that played off their company name and also embodied a sense of home. Instead of the typical blossoming green trees, they decided for the coziness that fall colors and autumn bring to families.

Our Process

Harford Designs is wonderful, for several reasons.

Responsiveness! Jessica responded to my requests very timely. She followed up with me before, during and after throughout the design process.

Creativity!  She worked with me to take my vision, tweak it, and produce something that was beyond my wildest imagination. The logo she created encompasses all the aspects I was looking for and more.

Professional! The work was done according to the timeline she discussed at our initial meeting. The quote was in line with my discussed budget. The final product was, and is, amazing.

I cannot recommend Jessica and Harford Designs, enough!
