UPDATE: I need a designed graphic as part of the logo. A generic shape copied from clip art or similar will not do. I need graphic with a logo. The graphic has to be able to stand alone (ie for an icon for Twitter etc).
I would like some designers to be more PLAYFUL and try a coloured cartoon type graphic: see Happy fresh, Spot Ninja, Citrus BPM, below; I would like some designers to look at doing something in these styles. I operate on both adult and children. The company name "Precision Spine" is quite cold, I would perhaps like something more colorful and playful, to balance this as I operate on children as well. Some of these colorful style designs WILL be shortlisted.
I am a spinal surgeon with private practice. I operate on peoples spines. I operate on adults AND children. People are afraid of "cowboys" in Spinal surgery. I am good. I am clear. I am totally straight with people. When I drop the ball, I will tell them. I want to convey "quality, attention to detail, SIMPLICITY, care, support, empathy".
Some of the standard of work submitted so far has been way below the quality I would expect. Some is clearly just clip art utilized auto-cad stuff, which will not reach the bar.
