    In your head 1st, once you have a couple of ideas, sketch them down. Then, if you are good with computers, or know someone who is, ask them to 'refine' your design. Or, if you know someone who is artistically inclined, you could ask them to have a go. You could look at other logo's for insperation, but, obviously, dont make yours too similar!. Getting your own one designed from scratch by a pro is going to be expensive!.

    If you can upload a sketch of what you are looking for to flicker, I can do a quick vector drawing of it for you, as long as its simple though, anything complex would take some time. My best advice is do something that will clearly identify what it is you do.

    Here is an what a vector drawing looks like, this is one I did of my van, admittedly this did take a little time to do.

    I would suggest something that people can see, and clearly understand so they can do google searches etc at a later date. Can you give me some buz words that relate to you and the area you live?

    Well if you wanted to do something impersonal, other than Paul Rods Window Cleaning, being from Carlisle you could call yourself Border City Window Cleaning, Castle Window Cleaning(for Carlisle Castle), something that relates to you in some way or the area you will cover. Do al little research and see what comes up.

    You could also use something completely unrelated, as long as it is memorable enough, for instance I am a big film buff, and one of my favourite films is the matrix, there is a scene where Neo is getting a dressing down by his boss, and there are window cleaners outside making a squeaking noise with there squeegees. His Boss is called Mr Rinehart. So from that you could use, Rinehart Window Cleaning or Squeekee Squeegees/ Squeaky Squeegees. Then is really just something that means something to you.

    Maybe your parter or someone close to you loves dolphins or something, and you could call yourself Dolphin Window Cleaning in testament to them, its really something you have to put some thought in to though. Get you name sorted out, then you can think a little more about a logo.

    here is an example...

    Not sure about supreme image as it doesn't really relate to window cleaning the way something like ClearView, I had a check for you and bordercitywindowcleaning is not used, and the domain is a available. What do you think of the logo attached to my last post, is that the kind of thing you would like?
