Maneka did an outstanding job of capturing my thoughts and the companies mindset. She was very adaptive to the corrections and alterations, which is what made her a standout! I highly recommend and will be returning for other projects!
Chisp is a fantastic designer: fast, creative, involved, and considerate. Chisp updated based on my direction quickly, making sure to get it right. And I just love my logo design. I will definitely seek out this designer for my next project!
How Mod Curio started their logo design journey

A gallery of modern curiosities
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Mod Curio is a gallery space and storefront founded and curated by Jon and Heather Almeda. The married pair work in a variety of mediums ranging from photography to pottery and reycled mixed media pieces. At Mod Curio you will find classic vintage radios retrofitted with modern components, miniature hand-thrown ceramic vases and bowls, cardboard sculptures, a gallery of photography, along with a variety of other artistically designed curiosities.
Mod Curio is located in the heart of downtown Tacoma directly across from the beautiful and historic Rialto Theater. Tacoma is a city that is often compared to Oakland and Brooklyn, cities that are known for their gritty urban culture. Cities that are less expensive and more relaxed than their prosperous neighboring cities. Tacoma has often been described as one of the hotspots for artists in the Pacific Northwest.
The main goal of our new space and name "Mod Curio" is to bring all our different artistic enterprises under one big umbrella. Below are links to our current websites for our photography, mod radio and pottery, etc.....

Logo types to explore
To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
The idea for our gallery and it's name is a modern artistic spin on an old Curio Shoppe.The interior will be very clean and white with bright pops of color. There will be a few midcentury modern furniture pieces. Our retro "Mod Radios" will be the most eye catching product in the space. A logo with an ode to mid century modern design could work really nicely with the overall vibe.
Mod: Fashionably up to date, especially in style, design, or dress.
Curio: Something unusual, usually small, perhaps worthy of collecting.
Below are photos of some of the items that will be on display in our gallery / storefront. We would like the font to be in capital letters because of the sign we plan to have in the window. However I also think the vintage "Mod Radios" could lend themselves to design ideas. The space will be used for meeting our wedding photography clients as well as a gallery and storefront for our other art and products that we make. It will be a multi-purpose space.
