STYLE: I'm interested in seeing something graphically complex and denser -- almost an old-school engraving. Please see the images of Proper Tension and Rag Proper, and look at the "Gryphon Advisors" logo that I uploaded today for inspiration.
I'm certainly not ruling out the simpler, "cleaner" concepts at this point, but I'd like to see something pretty different as well.
CONCEPT: A "telamon" is a male figure (most often heroic, muscular, etc.) used as a column or pilaster that supports an architectural feature. (See Wikipedia definition, subheading on that page of "in architecture." The rough idea is the company is there to support you -- with the subtext of your condo being a great piece of architecture. I've found some great images on Google Images, Corbis, etc.
In Greek myth, Telamon was himself an heroic figure, one of Jason's argonauts, helper to Hercules, father of Ajax (Trojan War, etc), so that's an underlying issue. Again, the idea of support for others comes into play as well as the inherent connection to classical Greek mythology.
I'm of two minds (at least) about whether or not the logo is representational (i.e., it includes a telamon). A beautifully drawn line drawing of a truly striking telamon could be really great and I can imagine it playing well on business cards and letterhead, etc. But maybe it doesn't need to be so literal? Maybe the telamon (and what he's holding up) becomes the letter "T" in the name of the company? Or is that too hokey? PDF attachment is from another company that's taken the telamon idea and complete abstracted it. I don't particularly like that level of abstraction, but perhaps if it was done better?
Maybe some of these thoughts get conveyed in a tag line (to come later)?
