My design was a challenging one because it had a lot of elements to include. Hendra/DORAPOL was able to take my brief into reality quickly, and accurately. The attention to detail, kind and patient responses to changes - would definitely consider working with Hendra again should I need more graphic design work.
Thank you so much for your hard work!!!

KATS K9 Activity Tracking System
We are a Canadian consulting firm that specializes in the training of police dogs. We also produce a software that is used to maintain police dog training and deployments. The software maintains statistics, produces training records and is used to assist agencies in ensuring the proper training is being maintained on their police dogs. You can learn more about our business from our two websites:
To see what our current software looks like and how it is used, you can download and install a 30 day free trial version from the site at http://www.kats.ca/download.html. If you choose to do so, when the registration screen comes up, do not change anything in that screen. Select "continue evaluation" to proceed into the software. The username and password for the first user in the system is: admin and you will be able to see what the software currently looks like. Please note that there are various color schemes in the software for using the system at night in "tactical" mode as well. If you do not wish to download the software you can also see many of the screenshots in the .pdf files I have uploaded. By looking at them, you will be able to see what icons are needed on most screens.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Police Dog trainers and handlers. We have other competitors out there and we want a look in the new software that will have a significant impact on the appearance of the program. We also need a logo created. I am going to upload what we currently use, as well as the current assets that are in the system so designers can see what we currently have and what icons need to be created. We are looking for something professional and dynamic, something that gives life to the software.
1. We need a new Logo for KATS. KATS stands for: K9 Activity Tracking System. We are looking for something that is dynamic and modern that will appeal to law enforcement. Please feel free to view both our websites to obtain a feel for what we do. This logo will be used on our website, in the software, in the software help files and possibly on letterhead as well as on some reports the KATS system produces.
2. A new series of software icons, both in .ico format as well as in a larger .png format that we can use on our website so the icons on the website mirror what is in our software. These icons will also be used in the help file built into the software. The picture formats may also be used on some reports.
As we progress we may require additional icons to be added, but we believe most of what we need are already in the current assets folder I have uploaded. Some assets are duplicates, and we only need one of each. Again, if you download the software, or go to our site, you can see how they are used in the system.
