The real Robroy was a Scottish folk hero. As a sales and marketing company providing professional services to small-to-midsized businesses, we see Robroy as sort of a Scottish business prince, if there is such a thing. The brand connotes integrity, authority, a sharp eye and a sharp tongue.
Please use our blog as a reference for our colors (red, pale blue, gray), line and attitude: http://robmacdonald.wordpress.com.
We want a logo that is recognizable at a distance. It should work in just one color (with black & white). 2 color is OK -- we'll consider it. Red is our favorite color.
Like a king's trumpet, with the banner hanging from it, emblazoned with a script 'R', we want our symbol to evoke communication, announcement, urgency -- as well as the serenity, grace and confidence of a prince. We are a sales and marketing company, so we want people to see our logo and say, "Robroy knows how to get the message across -- and that will help us get more sales appointments."
The contest winner will be the designer who best understands our company from reading our blog: http://robmacdonald.wordpress.com
I would like the logo to look like a symbol, as opposed to just a letter or just the name in special font.
I would like to keep it simple and recognizable at a distance.
OK to use the name of the company (Robroy Sales & Marketing) and/or the URL (RobroySales.com) and/or the first letter (R). OK to try something else.
Don't want more than 2 colors
Don't want cluttered logo
Don't want animals, plants or little 'guys' in the logo
