Thank you for all the creative thinking! Note that if the full name is going to be broken up, "Social Ventures" should not be separated, as this designates "ventures" with a "social change" purpose.
I am thinking of something simple, with "Bold Social Ventures" on one or two lines, and a subtle way to highlight "bold", for instance, a different color, or "bold" separated from "social ventures". If there is any special focus, it should be on the word "bold".
The brand should feel energetic and forward-leaning. The mission of the business is to help organizations grow and expand, so the brand should reflect that.
In terms of font, I'd like for it to be modern and feel light. "Bold Social Ventures" is already a hefty name, so the font can be much lighter and give an impression of modernity, lightness.
In terms of colors, this being a consulting business, it should have an element of structure, method, etc., and seem reassuring, professional. Blue should be the base color, with orange as my favorite color for an alternative/complement.
While a small icon might be OK, it should be discrete. Given the nature of the business, I had thought of a stylized version of an arrow, or a path, or something suggesting growth, for instance, to the left or on top of "Bold Social Ventures."
Examples of companies that I will bee competing with include FSG Social Impact Advisors, Dalberg Global Development Advisors, Bridgespan Group. I'd like to give an impression of more energy and creativity, while still mapping to the general management consulting industry.
