I'm looking for a logo and brand identity for my website, mariafarrell.com. It's a wordpress blog, so I need a banner heading and also some light branding for the column sides.
I also want to use the logo on business cards. Ideally, it would be my name in a good font plus the logo.
The logo should communicate the use of the Internet, community-building, professionalism and openness.
I like clean, simple designs with plenty of white space. I'm not against strong colours, but I like a fairly simple pallette, i.e. not a lot of different colours together.
I don't like: noisy, busy designs, feminine palettes, very literal use of imagery e.g. pictures of keyboards etc, logos that involve a globe.
