I needed a logo for my new organizing business. After many changes and modifications we finally came up with a design I absolutely love. jheniii is technically very strong. Her designs are very tight and look professional. It was a delight to work with her on this project. She was very responsive and creative in her designs. I would definitely work with her on future design projects.
Ivana did an excellent job on our design. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Salt Lake City Green, or SLCgreen, is Salt Lake City's Division of Sustainability and the Environment. The mission of SLCgreen is to conserve resources, reduce pollution, slow climate change and ensure a healthy, sustainable future for our community.
Our “Idle Free City” sign is intended to educate residents about the City’s Idle Free Ordinance and two minute idling time limit, which targets all residents and visitors driving in Salt Lake City. These signs will be posted throughout the city in public and private spaces where people might idle--along roads, in parking lots, bank/ fast food drive through windows, storefronts, schools, etc.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We need a sign that engages the public in an artful manner. Our old sign is plain and is often overlooked. We are looking for something that encourages residents and visitors to consider how their idling contributes to air pollution and negatively impacts health. Feel free to be creative with the logo; think air, color, movement, freshness, environmental stewardship, and conscious behavior. Something simple to print, yet engaging and informative. We’re hoping to catch people’s eye!
The new sign must include the following:
• City Ordinance 12.58.030
• Two minute time limit
• Salt Lake City seal
The old version of the sign indicated us as an "Idle Free City," we would like to communicate that we aim to be an idle free city, but that phrase doesn’t have to stay the same.
The shape of the sign does not need to be limited to a rectangle. 12 inches x 18 inches is the ideal size for a rectangular sign, keep it around that range so it’s visible to people in their cars.
The purpose of the idling ordinance is primarily educational. Tickets aren’t usually cited to idlers because we want to encourage voluntary enforcement and create a space for education about how to protect the public health and improve the environment by reducing emissions when warnings are given.
Salt Lake City is located at the foot of the beautiful Wasatch mountain range, extending to the Oquirrh mountain range on the west—these two ranges comprise the Salt Lake Valley which faces air quality challenges during the winter and summer months. The desired outcome of the Idle Free Ordinance is to reduce air pollution and improve air quality.
