Hi designer! :)
Visit psar.ch to see my work, however don't let the website's design influence you. It's due to change..
In general I like very simple and reduced designs in logos.
For the content in the logo you can work with the following names:
- Stäheli Architektur GmbH (GmbH is like LTD, or CO., not required)
- Stäheli Architektur (prefered)
Maybe something with the starting letter S and A. Maybe a shape made of those letters that can have the full company name spelled out below or next to it. So to be able to use the logo with or without the spelled out words. I would like it very much, if it were somehow modular in this way.
For example have just the logo on my door in big, or on a construction helmet or other equipment, recognisable without the full words. Stationary and website then with the logo and the name (stationary and website are not part of this competition, logo only)
But again, you are free in how you do this.
See attached pdf
My surname has the letter ä/Ä. So called "Umlaut". In handwriting often people do a straight line above the letter instead the two dots, since it is faster to write.
In the german language, historically it was first used as ae/AE, then became Æ/æ and later the now ä/Ä.
While in normal language the ä/Ä can be replaced by ae/AE at any time still, in names this is not done. Only sometimes for compatibility in international stuff like online forms and such. But I thought this info might be helpful to you in some way..
Those are all just suggestions. Do what you think is best. Even the questionaire by this website is just a tendency, not a requirement.
I am very open. I would like to avoid "trendy" though, as what is trendy becomes old fast. So no stag in the logo or 100 different fonts like every restaurant menu nowadays.. :)
Modern but not pompous. I do not want to seem flashy to the client.
Oh, and no swiss cross, mountains or any other swiss stereotypes. :P
This competition will be turned "blind" by Tuesday.
Please when presenting designs do not use a photo as a background, it makes it hard to read your work. (or if you show it on a photo, show plain as well)
I have come to realise that I don't like gold.
Also please when writing the words "Stäheli Architektur" do not leave the horizontal part of the A or the vertical part of the E out.
please stay way from circular batch designs.
Also please present your logo on a white background as well.
I don't mind other backgrounds, but show it on white as well.
