As Seen on TV BlueTap Site and Logo Design!
Posted 10-31-11 | by Andrew LoVuolo

I got a referral from Mia The Cable Girl, a friend that sells TV ad time at incredible rates, asking if I was up for a chat with Mr. Frahn about his hands-free Bluetooth speakerphone.

A few calls later and I was rolling on the designs for both the all new logo and the As Seen on TV type direct sales site for this interesting new product.
