Doing freelance work in Oregon, I shifted my workflow almost entirely to vectors. A "business card" design for a local business would often become a "window signage" design. Window graphics can be 30 feet long! I still use vector graphics almost exclusively, since it's much faster to make changes, and I can provide app mockups, final icons, and large print files out of the same Photoshop document.

I drew each element on a separate sheet of paper for ease of layout in the computer. It's all vectorized in Illustrator and laid out in Photoshop. The door graphic will go on coyote tan Land Cruisers, and the main logo (with the FJ80) will go on everything else: tee shirts, flyers, and children (if they stand still long enough).
Logo and business card for James Minarck, woodworker. (971) 241-6006
I drew the bit brace, and cleaned it up in Photoshop. The wood and metal echo Jim's work turning recycled metal and reclaimed wood into striking contemporary furniture. Red is his signature color. The M is an architectural confection made from two different Ms, and the pronunciation guide is just for fun. His name is easy to pronounce if you know how.
I love Jim's work. He made some small end tables out of sections of cedar telephone poles painted red. The tops are beautifully finished, and he left the aluminum tags and telephone markings nailed to the side.
