To be honest logos can be challenging, it's probably why some agencies charge an arm and a leg, as it is super important to be the face of your company.
I find within 4-5 hours we usually are able to produce a good range of options to either select from and or to dissect to formulate something special.
I have also created styles on my site for people to review and see what they like and what they don't like. The more feedback we get, the less time we need to spend and to be honest a lot of people can't put it into words what they like but working closely with our clients we have produced some amazing logos and unlike logos from overseas we not only ensure they are vector so scalable, but we provide the client with a mono version, reversed out version and a range of other different formats.
Here are just a few examples of logos we have produced.
