We need a design that is simple, unique, powerful, and professional. The main point here is simple. K.I.S.S.
We are looking for type face and an icon but this is negotiable. Use your judgement.
Attached is our old logo. I love the simplicity of its design but it just wasn't good enough, kind of boring. I designed it myself and you all are MUCH more talented.
As far as color, use your judgement. I definitely don't want to look like Miami in the 70's but I don't want to look like a bad funeral service either. Our website will have a black background but often our logo is shown on a white background site so inverted color scheme options may be necessary, you be the judge.
I don't need gimicky I need professional. Although we are new I need it to look polished.
Keep away from super feminine designs. I am a male and I am the face of the company. A more gender neutral design is what I am looking for.
No photographs. Anywhere this logo is displayed there will be our photos (even on the backside of a business card).
We definitely need print and web quality files.
This is your chance to be as creative as you want. My restrictions are easy: simple, unique, powerful, and professional. You decide the rest. Think of what you would want to see on your wedding photographer's cards, website, etc. Wow me.
