Design with style

I was talking with a fellow designer one day who had recently viewed my online portfolio.  To my surprise, he was able to tell the logos that I had created from concept and the logos that the client led all or most of the design.  He said that I have a distinctive style and it did not show in certain brands.  I had never been told this, but was so excited – as an artist – I HAVE A STYLE!

So, how do I show my style if it is not coming across in my work?  He suggested that I not only put up the final logo that the client and I choose, but also show my progress of work.  This lets potential clients see my thought process and more of my design style.  I have gotten great feedback and enjoy showing all of my concepts!  Below are two project that I have worked on – you will see the concepts as well as the final logo choice!  You can see more of my concepts on my website and facebook.
