Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

I'm primarily seeking consulting projects and contracts in higher education, K-12, and educational content provider startups.

Middle, senior and director level editorial, sales, and product marketing managers who need outsourced help and expertise but can't afford another "head" on payroll. That would be me, the off payroll "head".

Requirements

I need help with the creation of a logo and crisper brand for myself and my new educational publishing consulting business. I need help in five (5) areas, with details and drafts below:
1) Create a logo - would prefer some simple riff on a target/bullseye theme.
2) Create a byline/tagline.

“Helping content providers launch new ideas—because failure is expensive.” Or a more positive spin on that theme.

I've drafted all of the above with some alternatives, but need help in refining and creative presentation. Logo is a big part of it, byline/tagline should line up with logo. You can see my attached draft thinking as you consider logo/tagline creation.
