Before Gizwiz Studio Sdn. Bhd., there was LogoDesignCreation.com which started off as a home-based company in May 2003 dealing with all things web development as well as graphic design. Co-founded by both Chin Siong (Technical Director) and Jasmine Hor (Creative Director), it has since grown by leaps and bounds; from becoming one of the finest design firm in the industry to having a long list of renowned international clientele.
In 2005, the editorial feature in the hugely popular WIRED Magazine was the key factor in skyrocketing LogoDesignCreation to where it is today. (LogoDesignCreation was given the honour by WIRED Magazine, as the fastest design service provider among the competitive test group.)
Famous design publication such as the Web Design Index has also highlighted Gizwiz Studio’s creative web designs for three consecutive volumes. These includes Gizwiz Studio's website as one of the design featured in the seventh volume of Web Design Index. All of these interests and well-garnered attention from the media have certainly helped Gizwiz Studio Sdn. Bhd. to make an imprint in this profitable trade.
In 2009, LogoDesignCreation was chosen as one of the Logo Design Winners, awarded by LogoLounge, an active logo community shared by designers from all over the world and the largest database of logo in existence on the internet. Upon competitive evaluation by an international panel of judges including Andreas Karl of Karl Design, Von Glitschka of Glitschka Studios, Michelle Sonderegger of Design Ranch, Sarah Moffat of Turner Duckworth, Jamie Koval of VSA Partners, Vince Frost of Frost Design, Bronwen Rautenbach of Brand Union and Alex de Janosi of Lippincott, LogoDesignCreation's work was selected among with 33,000 logos entered for examination. Thus, they have a privilege to be publicised in their fifth volume LogoLounge design publication. For the fifth volume, each judge reviewed thousands of logos from around the world, each mark submitted by talented LogoLounge members. Projects selected for the final collection is not only an excellent point-in-time examination; it is full to the brim with inspiration, higher thinking and craftsmanship.
LogoLounge marked their 100,000 logo collections lately, submitted by their large number of members. In addition to that, ten members were selected at random, with LogoDesignCreation being the lucky one to win a one-year LogoLounge.com membership extension (a $100.00 U.S. value).
LogoDesignCreation was also recognized by Wall Street Journal, as the best value service provider, offering logo packages at affordable cost. Based on an article from the Wall Street Journal, “Can Logo Services Make your mark?” written by Peter King, during the recession period in 2009, assuming unemployed businessperson were looking to cut down their costs, they analyzed four logo design providers offering packages under $150. According to King, with the rates given by these agencies, it benefits the economy and start-ups of small businesses. LogoDesignCreation, first from Asia and Malaysia to be reviewed was the best value agency among the four providers for being able to deliver different logo designs to choose from with unlimited edits complete with animation at just $67 compared to other providers. With Wall Street Journal’s recognition in both their online website as well as the journal, LogoDesignCreation has propelled themselves ahead of the other competitors locally as well as internationally.
LogoDesignCreation’s ambitious use of creativity proved even further when their sampled work was selected once again to be featured in LogoLounge’s inaugural book, Initials & Crests, one of the first edition category from the Master Library series. This series brought plenty of exemplary logo design work from creatives around the world. Along their continuous improvements, their work was also included onto the Master Library series second edition Animals and Mythology scheduled to be published in June 2010. Amidst that, LogoDesignCreation was proud by coming across as the first in Malaysia to be identified by LogoLounge to be highlighted in their publications.
LogoDesignCreation added another success to their winning table recently when eight of their logos were accepted once more for the upcoming LogoLounge, volume sixth publication. This season's judging session has been even tougher with over 34,000 logos entered for consideration.
