Iggy submitted the winning design less than an hour after the contest was published. He got everything right, and even put a "Space Invader" in the logo. I would work with Iggy again in a second.
Great work, Iggy Stardust. We love our new logo!
How Lane McGhee started their logo design journey
Lane McGhee, your Tight Fist Tax Strategist
Lane McGhee, last name spelled with an 'H' because it's scotch (not irish), and I'm tight with your money -- the tight fist tax strategist. It's YOUR money, and you shouldn't pay any more tax than legally required. You deserve EVERY possible tax break and deduction, and I find every possible way, every loophole, every applicable rule to reduce your taxes. I pull out all the stops in creative strategies to reduce your taxes -- and apply those strategies not only to professionally preparing tax returns, but also to your employment, your family, your investments, your insurance, your retirement plan, your living trust, your business. My mission is to enhance your lifestyle -- creatively, strategically, effectively -- starting with an income tax overhaul!
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Target is affluent individuals, investors, small biz owners, boomers (ages 45-65) and senior citizens (ages 66+). (Also have pro-bono program for military Veterans.)
Looking for a patriotic tight fist, squeezing every dollar out of Uncle Sam's hat full of money -- it's your money, and you deserve to keep everything that's legally yours. We want to thwart Uncle Sam's ability to take too much from you. We apply a famous quote from Judge Learned Hand's ruling from the bench: "Anyone may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; ... for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands." I am the Tight Fisted Tax Strategy Guy -- the go to guy who reduces your taxes.
We need a professional-looking, "we mean business" kind of logo, with a hint of fun -- and picture some type of fist, perhaps clinching a wad of cash, keeping it out of Uncle Sam's hat that's presumably collecting taxes... Squeeze Uncle Sam before he squeezes You.
We want a relatively 'simple' logo, without taking away from the strength of the message. It should have color, but also be easily recognizable in black and white. The graphic (without words) should loudly proclaim "Tight Fisted Tax Strategist" who saves your money and lowers your taxes.
