Mauro Jaurena was amazing to work with. From his multiple different design directions from the opening round, that led us to a direction we never would have come up with or imagined, clear through the final round where he was super responsive and extremely fast making any tweaks or changes we could think of to refine the idea. He gave extremely valuable feedback on the design perspective to what makes for a great logo and what to avoid. This was an amazing experience. We would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for a creative, responsive and friendly (not to mention extremely patient) designer. Five Stars!!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Origaudio is a supplier of awesome tech and lifestyle products in the promotional product industry. People purchase our products and we brand them with other people's logos like Facebook, Google, etc. We consider ourselves to be out-of-the-box thinkers and we definitely draw outside the lines. We make our own rules and our creativity gets us noticed.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We are looking for a colorful design our our backdrop. It will be the highlight of our booth during our largest trade show in Vegas. We are looking for a graffiti/hand drawn style that combines a Banksey type of "f%ck the system" message and something that will be a giant attention-grabber. The banner will be 20ft wide by 16ft tall. The bottom 6ft of the banner will be blocked, so no relevant messaging or text should appear there but we do need non-important design in that area as to not appear blank.
The final file can be designed to 1in = 1ft scale and should be a scalable vector file. Our logo (attached) should be half the width of the full banner at the top. The background should look like or have the texture of a gray concrete wall. We are looking for a lot of color. The messages to incorporate into the artwork include the following (not all have to be used, but whatever fits—and feel free to add your own if you have anything good)
we will make awesome happen
we will not conform
fight the system
different is better
if you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission
just say "no" to boring
we are origaudio
breakin hearts, rules, and the all the promo molds
always work against the grain
stray from the path—you might something that's actually interesting.
I'm attaching some examples of styles we like as well as our logo. The logo is vector, but should have some type of design applied to make it look graffiti to blend into the over all look of the whole banner.
