Really we are looking for some new ideas to help us set our new identity. We don't have any current designs that we are super locked in to. It would be ideal if the final design was able to be made a solid colour (such as all white or black etc) for printing on uniforms etc. however this should not limit the final design from containing colour or being fun.
We encourage designers to be creative with their use of imagery from within the painting industry, for example, paint tins, ladders, paint brushes/rollers, overalls etc. (not expecting all in the 1 design!).
We would like if it we had a logo that was recognisable independent of our company name, however, the final design should allow for both a logo and our name to together nicely e.g. business cards, vinyl for company vehicles etc.
We really want a professional feel, given that we often partner with larger commercial builders and companies, however, we also still want to remain approachable for private jobs.
