Logo types to explore
[Update 3] Re: traditional oriental design The audience is a western audience, and they are new to the faith, so I don't want to confuse them with symbolism that's from the Middle East, nor from the Far East. I want them to feel comfortable and at home -- so really a logo that's familiar to a Western audience is the direction I want to go. Some designers have been making 'oriental' or 'arabic' looking designs, which doesn't really work for me. [Update 2] I'd like to propose a process for those of you want to try it, to make things efficient for your and I in this final round. Here's a three step submission process where we can drill down to your best design. >>submission 1: GENRE Throw out to me a couple of 'genres' of logo: one that's word-based, one that's symbol based, one that's very professional looking, one that's a bit playful. I'll tell you which one I like best. >> submission 2: variations Once you know which genre I prefer, try 3-6 variations of that direction. This will pretty much be the final selection here, i'll pick the one I like best. >> submission 3: tweaks It may be color tweaks, or font tweaks, but at this final stage it's just brushing things up. [Update 1] I typed the following up for one of the designers and thought you'd benefit too: Question: What is the style/feeling you'd like the logo to transmit to the viewers? * my main thing is when someone sees the logo I want them to involuntarily say 'wow'. That's always been a benchmark for me. * it needs to convey feelings of calmness, intelligence, academics -- but yet a feeling of fun attached to that. * audience is North America, so I need a look that's familiar to a North American market. Question: Are there certain symbols you'd like to see incorporated? Or even symbols you'd absolutely refrain of? * well symbols Id refrain from are simple, basically low quality 'cheap' symbols that convey cliche meanings, like: a key, a cresent, a star, a moon, a door, a swoosh, an arc << totally not my taste. As for symbols, I find myself gravitating to logos in this contest that do have a symbol attached to it. (Other contests I might have been more inclined to more text base, but here I'd prefer symbol attached) Bottom line: do what YOU think looks wow. I've noticed that designers that follow my instructions too literally tend to design things for 'me', rather than what they think looks good professionally. And the result is to no ones liking.
