How dandesign2010 started their logo design journey
Dan Sullivan Photography
I began photographing nature before finding an interest in weddings. Now, as a professional wedding photographer, I create a story with my photos in a non-traditional way. Whenever possible, I will incorporate nature into my wedding photography. For example, I love to photograph the bride and groom in outdoor locations like the beach, under a tree, etc... I also have experience photographing couples UNDER water! I often see nature/ wildlife when shooting a wedding, even when I'm not looking for it. I then try to incorporate the nature into the wedding story...
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I am targeting Brides! They would ideally be between 20 and 45 years old, educated, affluent, and hip. My target lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, California primarily, but I will also be trying to attract business nationally and internationally. I am trying to attract high-end clients, and so my logo should reflect that... I want a logo that people will recognize quickly and easily.
I am looking for something simple, easy-to-read, yet professional, sophisticated and elegant.
I like the idea of a lotus flower (which grows in water)... I am not "married" to this concept though! Please feel free to create something original... I am primarily interested in a nature element in this logo like a flower or flower head, leaf, feather, bird ocean or tree...? But NOT too ornate or feminine.
My logo must be separated from my business name; not touching.
I would prefer the logo consist of neutral colors, and I prefer gray or earth tones, but again, I am open to your ideas. I am re-working my website to be white.
It should not look like a cartoon...
Please do not use stock photos or clip art in the logo...
The logo should be CMYK vector .eps file for print and a RGB psd for my web site.
