About the Design and Brand Mark

ex libris

Using the brand mark for horror writer, Kira Butler, the seal adapts the vintage 1920 Corona typewriter and baby batwings as an integrated logo into the design. The seal’s design was inspired by embosser stamps used to imprint library books, and has been used in multiple applications for stationary.

  • As a design client, I have been thrilled to work with someone who can translate my vague ideas into a viable format, but I have been even more impressed by Kira's professionalism. From the initial project contract and timeline, to the detailed invoices and realistic deadlines, I always know exactly where we stand in terms of project completion - an invaluable assurance. Working with someone this reliable and talented has been a pleasure I hope to repeat.

  • Kira Butler far exceeded my expectations on many levels. She is an amazingly talented web designer who knows how to execute her vision from beginning to end, as well as interpret my own into a design that can work. And what also impresses me is the way she conducts herself with such a high level of professionalism and integrity. I have hired her for other projects besides my web site design, and would not hesitate to do so again, I also recommend her every chance I get to others in need of similar services.

  • Her understanding of the project at hand, her eye for design and thorough understanding of the content that she worked with as well as her respect for critical timelines were magical attributes that brought not only products to help the community clients of the CRC but identifiable professional marketing tools. Kira's contribution to the CRC operation was key in raising our visibility. I would not hesitate to include Kira as a member of my team again, if the opportunity would be presented!

She is also a great UI designer that understands her audience. She has great rationale and can easily explain her design decisions. On top of it all she has the most charming personality! I recommend her 100%.
