Simple, design led and sophisticated is the overall look and feel we want. Less builder with hammer, more abstract design that evokes the work we do. A memorable simple logo that defines our business - we deliver "experience, quality and style assured". We are open to ANY new ideas - its just that we aren't designers and haven't got the ability to think of what we want! Needs to evoke quality, high standards and have a great finish. Also needs to work on black backgrounds and white backgrounds.
Please go to our website to see how we market ourselves http://www.chamonix-renovations.com and our landing page to see what we say about roofing - an area of the business we wish to grow - http://www.chamonix-roofing.com We live at the foot of Mont Blanc mountain and wooden chalets are the norm'.
Once we have decided on a logo for use with all our marketing we will come back and launch a contest to merge both sites and refresh with our new brand
IDEAS WE HAD (you really don't need to stick to them!)
We don't hate our current logo, but we don't own it and it could be better (alot better!) I have included a quick t-shirt design I did on vistaprint - rubbish photo, but if you look closely the mountain has circles - I thought a designer could maybe run with this idea and come up with a simple "constructed mountain"?
We have been trying to describe either this or an abstract simple logo using the classic carpentry joint used where roof meets wall. We came up with this idea whilst using chopsticks in a japanese restaurant! So you can imagine the simple lines we were creating...
Just there incase its the sort of thing you need...I love this photo of a corner of a chalet that we use on our homepage as its simple, yet beautifully done. ANother shows the "jopint" above and another is a classic picture that comes to mind when you think of Chamonix I DO NOT WANT a version of the blue/green logos i've added - these have been tweaked and used on loads of logos around here and i'm looking for something original
