Sample logos
Do you have any example logos you like?

Providing designers with examples helps them identify the style and aesthetic you like.

Values to communicate
  • Feminine Masculine
  • Young Mature
  • Luxury Economical
  • Modern Classic
  • Playful Serious
  • Loud Quiet
  • Simple Complex
  • Subtle Obvious
Color preferences
Blue, yellow, red, black
To be used on
  • Print (Business cards, letterheads, brochures etc)
  • Online (Website, online advertising, banner ads etc)
  • Merchandise (Mugs, T-shirts etc)
  • Signs (Including shops, billboards etc)

Our core target group is 25-35 years old, wealthy, well-educated, mostly Brazilian but well-travelled, fun and party loving... people who do not mind spending luxury prices if they get a really great experience in exchange

The logo should meet the following key requirements:
1) Appeal to our luxury-loving young customers with a modern yet sophisticated look
2) Convey a glimpse of an idea of what is behind our product: fun, ocean, party, yachts
3) The graphical element should also be usable stand-alone, without the brand name (e.g., as a "favicon.ico" on a web site)
4) Other high-end brands that might become our sponsors, think Louis Vuitton or Veuve Cliquot, should feel comfortable seeing our logo next to theirs

Inspirations and ideas for the logo and visual identity so far:
Main graphical element: should be something that conveys the idea of maritime fun/party/mischief - e.g., a variation of Neptune's trident, Neptune with trident, a turtle theme,...
Secondary graphical element for the visual identity could be (but most not be) something wavy to reflect the ocean theme
