I'm looking for a polished and professional logo that will be used to co-ordinate my new branding package. The logo will be iconic and will translate well for calling cards, stationary, e-signature and as watermark. Ideally the logo will be compact and easily constrained into boxes / circles. It needs to look good on clean, white (or black) backgrounds.
A contemporary audience that relates to all things elegant / classic / subtle yet is also a little quirky / whimsical or stylized. My potential clients consider themselves modern, urban and current: think ‘Friends’ all grown up.
Here are a few images that appeal:
I’m looking for a logo that won’t date quickly and draws upon the below inspiration:
• clean, linear, with a fresh color palette (eg turquoise or oranges such as ‘blue sky day’, ‘transition’ or ‘one for the masses’ from Kuler http://kuler.adobe.com
• fresh and fun with a bold typeface (rounded fonts with diagonal bars)
• Well thought out monogram with fluid / organic script boxed or integrated with ‘Amanda Herbert Photography’. Feel free to be creative with the initials and name.
• Name of font & Vector based graphics.
If you could display your logo as a package so I could see how it translates as letter heading, watermark, business cards etc that would be perfect.
Finally, multiple colour scheme or brand suggestions are more likely to be successful.
Thanks and Good Luck, Mandy
