I am trying to capture the magic, passion and rythym of South Beach at night in this logo. I think the pictures I uploaded convey those feelings. If possible, I would like to see a logo which includes palm trees and perhaps a drawing of a skyline of art decco buildings (at night) as seen from a distance. Or maybe a street scene from Ocean Drive (the main street that runs in front of the Art Decco Buildings) with the buildings behind it. Or maybe something that includes, art decco buildings, palm trees and beach and ocean. This logo is directed primarily to persons of all nationalities, ethnicities, backgrounds, economic conditions between the age of 18-40, but should be able to attract people of all ages and convey an attitude of chic, cool, fashion and party. South Beach is located on Miami Beach, FL and is known as the US French Riveria and is home to movie stars as well as many other celeberties and is one of the most popular tourist destinations and party places in the nation. If you have been there, you know what I mean, if not, you might want to check out the Wil Smith video "Welcome to Miami" on You Tube to get a feel for the place. I plan to eventually use this logo on my web site, phone app, stationary and business cards. If you need to discuss this project please call me anytime at 305-431-8407, or email at If you don't think my idea will work, of if you have a better idea, lets see it! Good luck!

I look forward to working with you.
